    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Caribou Coffee.

    Interview

    Process took longer than expected. Interview to job offer was almost three months, but I believe the company was going through a new hiring/pay structure change at exactly that time. Began with a brief phone screen interview with the typical questions. I was called a week later to set up an in-person interview with who would be my district manager. We met at a cafe and talked for two hours. It was structured with a template of questions, but nothing intimidating.

    Interview Questions

    • Most unexpected - if you could be any superhero, who would you be and why.
      Most difficult - what does "an extraordinary experience that feeds the soul mean to you?"   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I'm not very good at negotiating, so I took what I was offered, which was two grand more than the same position for a different company
