    Team Member Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Caribou Coffee (Maplewood, MN) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online but waited a week or two for them to call me. I went to the shop and the store manager was still interviewing another candidate. Shortly after their interview ended, she told me she'd get to me in a bit, in a friendly positive tone with a smile. I waited 5-10 minutes until we finally went into a group dining room to do the interview. She was very open and positive, almost as if we were friends. After the interview, she offered me the job.

    Interview

    Low key. You get a free drink for interviewing. I clicked with the manager right away. She made me feel welcome and was very bubbly and genuinely happy. Sometimes, you'll interview with a couple people. Just smile and chat with them.
    I looked at Glassdoor before I went. These reviews were helpful.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Caribou Coffee (Eagan, MN) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I was extremely interested in working for this company, so I interviewed at 4 locations. The interview process itself was great, but 3/4 locations claimed they would call me the next day, and none of them did. I would've preferred a call even if I hadn't gotten the job! Finally in the 4th interview at the 4th location I asked "when can I start?" and I was hired on the spot.
