    I worked at Candy Kitchen full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The two best reasons to work at Candy Kitchen are the beach atmosphere and that you get to sample all of the delicious candies and homemade fudge.

    Cons

    No matter how hard you try to give great service to all your customers, THE CUSTOMER IS NOT ALWAYS RIGHT. Sometimes they forget they are on vacation and need to chill out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give your employees the benefit of the doubt, and stand behind your GOOD employees. Remember no matter how hard you try, you can't please all the people all the time.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Candy Kitchen in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    I originally inquired about the job in-person, which I think is beneficial with smaller companies like this one. I returned 3 days later to meet the manager, who took my application. I received a phone call a few days later to schedule an interview, which I went in for 2 days after. The interview was short, and not intimidating at all - the manager made it fun. They mainly asked about people skills, ability to work under pressure, ethical concerns (e.g. how you would react if you witnessed a coworker steal), and willingness to work as a team member. I would advise any other candidates to show up early, be friendly, and sell yourself as a fun and helpful person. I was impressed with the casual nature of the interview, the manager's sense of humor, and the laid-back environment overall.

    Interview Questions
    • How well do you operate under pressure? Consider a scenario in which customers are overflowing through the doors, your team is one person short due to illness, you do not have time to re-stock anything, one particular customer is being rude to you, and on top of everything, something spills and makes a huge mess. Could you work productively without stressing out?   Answer Question
