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

Pros

Free coffee, fun environment, freedom to be creative.

Cons

Tons of rules and regulations. Everything has to be done "the caribou way."

Other Employee Reviews for Caribou Coffee

  1. "Good learning, Zero career growth"

    Pros

    Nice people; good project diversity; casual work environment; great coffee and expertise in coffee (best by far here!); good fit for someone looking for entry level experience and a challenging work environment very early in their career.

    Cons

    Very strong politics, lack of alignment and a lot of backstabbing at Sr. Leadership level and below, lack of accountability and collaboration (these same leaders keep getting promoted), no ability to grow below more sr. Leadership (huge watch-out if you want to grow), terrible and antiquated systems. Take a close look at their benefits and be careful w/ promises made during the interviewing process; I would not recommend if you are a professional who is interested in growing and advancing.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to care about your employees just like the level of connection your expect of team members in the field. Listen to employee feedback, surveys, and don't ignore customer feedback. Avoid treating employees like they are expected to give, give and give to the company, while getting nothing back.

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

    Pros

    loved the actual job and people i worked with. easy hours, good benefits for even part time hourly employees.

    Cons

    managers on all levels are pressured by corporate to meet ridiculous goals. the company has changed its focus from serving great quailty coffee and tea to selling junk to customers that actually hurts sales in the long run.
