    My job was to make the customer's day, I loved that.

    I have been working at Amy's Ice Creams

    Pros

    It wasn't just an ice cream parlor like Baskin Robbins. We did tricks with the ice cream which meant putting on a show.

    Cons

    Your arms were very sore after nearly every shift.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Plastic aprons for the coordination challenged.

    I have been working at Amy's Ice Creams

    Pros

    Great customers and company, flexible

    Cons

    Scheduled for "on call" shifts that are from 9:00 pm to close - not reasonable. Go to work and are told not needed or to wait to see if I can clock in - poor management. Managing costs should be done through scheduling, not through wasting the time and $ (for transportation) of employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs to train lower level management on effective communication, managing costs and motivating their teams.

    I worked at Amy's Ice Creams

    Pros

    It's a fun job - you meet lots of interesting people and there are several locations so you can work different areas if you want.

    Cons

    they have so many employees working that you don't get very many hours each week so it is definitely a very part time job, and they can cut your hours to 2-3 weekly without notice I assume so they don't have to pay benefits

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    better leadership by store managers as they can be a bit flaky, maybe hire a few less people so that those that want to can work enough to make it worthwhile

    Pros

    Fun and loyal customers, good environment to work it, opportunity to make decent money compare to other jobs of this level

    Cons

    Awful management, You are disposable, As a 17 year old girl they felt fine with making me work alone at 2am

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The managers were not trained to care about their employees to give competent training, I don't feel that Amy Simmons cares about her employees
