    I worked at Graeters for about 2 years. It was fun, easy work, but pretty tiresome during the summer.

    I worked at Graeters part-time (more than an year)


    -Many free sample products
    -Flexible schedules (some employees only worked ~5 hours a week)
    -Easy to change shifts with other employees
    -Family owned business means you will see and get to know the Graeters family
    -You get to learn about the company and tour the factory


    -Because the company is so small, management seems to be a tightly-knit "clique" sometimes. Employees who are trying to climb the ladder at Graeters may find themselves out of the loop.
    -Shifts can be dull and long during the winter, and you will have lines out the door almost every night during the summer.
    -You won't typically get a raise for working consecutive years. This seems to be a gray area not well-understood by either the employees or management.
    -Many high-schoolers work here and not all of them have a great work ethic.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Graeters in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    The first day that school let out, I was on the lookout for a new job. I stopped by Graeter's on a slow time of day and met with the manager. I asked for an application and instead the manager asked if I had time for an on-the-spot interview. I was sort of scared; I was wearing white short shorts and a black tank top. Definitely not interview appropriate. However, he interviewed me and asked me a bunch of questions, like a sentence describing yourself and 3 adjectives your friends would describe you as and what my school schedule was like. I was hired on the spot and, honestly, it's been a great experience.

    Interview Questions
    • "Describe yourself in one sentence."
      Pretty difficult because you don't want to sound cocky and you don't want to sound lame. Just a heads up.

    Negotiation Details
    I didn't negotiate- honestly, I was just happy to have a job again and be in a new work environment!
