I worked at Caribou Coffee full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Good benefits (if you work 20 or more hours)
Never bored

Cons

Didn't have any training before being thrown onto the front register
Many employees and managers break a lot of the sanitary rules and safety rules
Have to deal with very rude customers

Advice to Management

Sanitation rules and safety rules should ALWAYS be followed. Also, brand new employees need more training or the store will flop.

    I worked at Caribou Coffee part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I LOVED working the drive through. You have to have your crap together though or it will be bad. The people working there were generally really nice. The shift drinks ad free coffee each week were great, not to mention the 30% off discount that I probably used too much :) I am a morning person too, so I loved that my 8 hours for the day could be done at 1.

    Cons

    Late nights, frequent transitions in management. One manager I had was a horrible mess as a barista. We didn't know what to do because we couldn't tell the store manager she wasn't good, but it made everything so slow. She was trying though, so we just let her.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate. And learn how to be a barista.
