I enjoyed the people I worked with and the customers as well.
Stocker/Cashier (Former Employee) – Princeton, MN – August 9, 2018
I feel the job I had worked well for me, however, there other positions in the store that were much more challenging than mine, and there was a lot turmoil though out the store which created a very negative working environment.
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Sauk Centre, MN – August 9, 2018
Thrown into a line of work with little training, poor communication, and poor scheduling. Learned most things the hard way. Management plays favorites. Most co-workers get along well. Others seem to have management wrapped around their fingers. Hardest part about job is not being able to stick up for yourself and being thrown under the bus. Most enjoyable part of job is working with people that take pride in their job and get along well with others.
Bakery Clerk (Current Employee) – Big Lake, MN – August 8, 2018
I had never had a real job until Coborn's, it was a great first job to have. It was easy job most of the time full friendly atmosphere, I had an amazing manager and I learned how to make sure to be sanitary one hundred percent of the time. I love learning all the daily tasks of a bakery clerk, and take pride in everything I do, I suggested the job to my cousin in St. Cloud because it seemed like such an easy going job. I feel my manager made sure I knew how to take care of every situation and how to work well with customers, which I hope I reached her expectations.
Great manager, decent amount of breaks, mainly friendly staff, and decent pay.
Not as many benefits as I wanted, not many hours, difficulty in transportation, fluctuation in hours, and customers are pretty unthoughtful.
Bakery Department Associate (Former Employee) – Buffalo, MN – July 15, 2018
I enjoyed baking breads, making desserts and talking with customers. I learned how to base ice and write on cakes, make various types of desserts such as peanut bars, dream bars and walking sundaes. Organizing stock in the freezers was a bit of a challenge, but I was allowed to sample anything out to customers that I wanted to try for myself. Coborn's was a good place to work and I enjoyed my experience there.
Cake Decorator (Current Employee) – Big Lake, MN – June 27, 2018
A typical day is busy But can be quit stressful. I learned a lot more about decorating and dealing with people when stressed out. Management is great they are supportive and do their best to help when needed. It is a fun place to work friendly and family oriented. hardest part was balancing guest assistance and my decorating work load. I really enjoy decorating the cakes
Meat Department Manager (Former Employee) – Montevideo, MN – June 3, 2018
I enjoyed working for Coborn's. I felt the pay was fair for the work that I did and they offered plenty of work advancement opportunities. Unfortunately my life did not allow me to continue working there.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Clearwater, MN – May 30, 2018
This was the first job I ever got, they were very flexible with school and when I had other jobs during the summer and such, I really don't have much bad to say. There aren't many chances to advance unless you know someone higher up. The new front desk manager isn't the nicest in my experience, but I never worked with him so I don't know much.
Cashier/Bagger (Former Employee) – Mitchell, SD – May 16, 2018
I hated it. Played favorites and never truly looked at those who deserved the jobs. Never was thankful for those who came into the store to work when others called in all the time and when those who called in get a pay raise instead of others who work their butts off.
A typical work day varies, I have learned a lot at Coborns, I have worked my way up from a guest service Representative to Sr. Front end manager. the culture is fast and friendly, the hardest part of my job is working weekends. The most enjoyable are the people I work with.
