    The interview was actually pretty relaxed. We met at the store and my interviewer explained to me her role and career at Caribou Coffee. She explained the four values and the Caribou mission statement. The interview only took about 20-25 minutes. I included a lot of the questions I was asked and they are intended to be helpful. Before this interview, I found lots of interview questions and tips on this site that were also useful.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Caribou Coffee (Blaine, MN) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I received a phone call the day after applying and set up my interview for the following week. Only a twenty-minute interview in a very relaxed atmosphere. One of Caribou's four values they care the most about is the communities around their stores so, they tend to look for people with outgoing personalities that like to volunteer their time around their local communities.

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Caribou Coffee (Minneapolis, MN).

    It was super casual and in the middle of a busy food court at a mall . The two hiring managers were super nice and even gave me a free coffee and told me what to expect and answered all my questions about dress code and scheduling. I had to wait three days for an email stating my start date and which location I would do my training at that was torture.

    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.
