Employees Reveal What It's Really Like To Work At Dutch Bros Coffee

Dutch Bros Coffee was first started in the early 1990s and was meant to be a major player in the dairy space. According to the brand's website, things changed after three generations when two brothers, Dane and Travis Boersma, decided to experiment a little with their family business and offer steaming hot cups of coffee to their customers. Dane had an interesting observation to make on the change. He said, "One of the most rewarding things in this change of occupation was going from smelling cow manure to smelling coffee." Word. 

Just in case you were wondering, working at Dutch Bros Coffee can be an interesting experience. The brand particularly focuses on hiring staff members that can be a positive influence on their peers and can rise up to the challenge of meeting expectations. As for working with the company itself, the sky's the limit and there are some amazing opportunities to grow. The brand states that it aims to "empower employees who have shown desire, drive and determination to run a Dutch Bros location of their own. Growth opportunities are exclusively for existing, qualified Dutch Bros Employees and are closed to the public." Whoa.

Dutch Bros Coffee provides a great learning opportunity

According to ex-employees on Indeed, working at Dutch Bros Coffee can be a rather interesting experience. A former employee only had good things to say about the role when they wrote, "Fun environment to work in. Upbeat and happy. Loved the people I worked with as well as many of the customers I got to know over the years. I learned the best customer service skills of my life through this job." Their only complaint? It can be quite challenging to get through work without a breather. Another person wished that their managers were better and more accommodating.

Another former team member wrote on Niche about their time with the company. They called it a "life changing" experience and explained that they got to learn a lot about people, thanks to the fact that they had a chance to interact with so many customers. They also praised the fact that the company focuses on doing its part for society. Another employee agreed and wrote, "My time at Dutch Bros. has been amazing. I learned what it's like to be part of something greater, and to not only fill my cup but also to fill others' cups."
