What does it take to work for CBD?

We look for people who are highly motivated and enjoy a fast-paced work environment. Those with an upbeat, outgoing, open-minded personality will blossom at CBD. Of course, a good sense of humor never hurts. All of our employees are encouraged to embrace a creative, “outside-of-the-box” approach to retail—we like original thinkers and problem solvers, and we know that good ideas come from all over the company, not just from the "top." What else? The ability to work independently and as part of a team is essential. Customer service experience is a plus. Passion for specialty coffee a must!
