    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Caribou Coffee (Minneapolis, MN) in June 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was relatively quick it didn't last any longer than 15 minutes. I was hired on the spot after about five questions. Which is, to me, not enough of a vetting process when looking for quality employees. But the manager was kind and said she needed help. Filled out paperwork two days later and began working the next week.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Caribou Coffee (Spring Lake Park, MN) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I was called on Friday, and asked to set up an interview on Monday, so I called back and left a message and a call back number. I did not receive a call all weekend, so I called Monday morning and got an interview for 45 minutes later. I was told I would be receiving a call a week later to find out if I got the job. I never received a call, not even to say I didn't get it.

    Interview

    Very casual interview. I showed up the day I applied and basically just chatted with the managers for a half hour. The environment was and still is a very relaxed one, and the interview reflected that

    Barista Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Caribou Coffee (Maplewood, MN) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I attended the job fair they held. The manager for my location was absent, so the next city's over interviewed me.
    Some questions asked were related to the company, others were about you and what type of worker you'd be. One of them really threw me off and I could only answer 1 of the three.
    I thought the interview went very well besides that and she mentioned "I like that answer." But alas, no call back.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Caribou Coffee (Richfield, MN) in April 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was very easy and laid back. The manager took me to a small table and asked me a few simple questions. After that, he told me about himself and about the company some more and then told me what my job title would entail and what I would be doing. All-in-all it was a very simple interview and fun. I got to learn a lot about the place and about what I would be doing for my future job.

    Barista, Shift Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Eau Claire, WI
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Caribou Coffee (Eau Claire, WI) in December 2015.

    Interview

    The process was long (over 2 hours) which I believed was very extensive for a barista job. After I received the positive, training was inadequate. I thought that because they took such a long time to interview me, they would take a lot of time to train and prepare me for the position. Instead, I was thrown in with a ton of questions and not a lot of guidance.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Caribou Coffee (Minneapolis, MN) in November 2015.

    Interview

    The interview went very well. I answered all questions with detail answers also, excellent information. I will admit I was a little nervous but, the interview went well so, I am not sure why I didn't get hired. The team member offered a free beverage of any kind on the house which I loved but, I was little disappointed that I didn't get the job.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Caribou Coffee (Minneapolis, MN) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Interview was 5 minutes long - manager went down a list of questions. She seemed slightly pressured by a growing line of customers, but she was polite and gave me time to answer each question completely. She even would chime in her own few extra words. It was a good experience.
