    I've had better experiences...

    Scooper (Former Employee)
    Sonoma, CA

    ProsIt is a good entry level job for teens who are seeking experience in customer service skills, money handling skills, and food handling skills.

    ConsThere was no regulation by the managers, I never received structured training, and I never was asked to get a food-handlers permit.

    Not a bad place to work!

    Customer Service Representative (Current Employee)
    Westwood, CA

    ProsGreat perks (free ice cream), good people to work with, a fun environment to work in. I loved working here, especially because I got to make ice cream cakes.

    ConsNo room for growth - they are franchises. The stores are all the same layout, so it gets really noisy with the tile floors, glass cases, and low resonance humming from the fans

    Advice to Senior ManagementI would not change anything!

    Great job that I had while a full time student.

    Scooper (Former Employee)
    Albany, NY

    ProsReally easy summer/college job. I worked part time and the hours were flexible enough. Laidback atmosphere and good management made the job worth going back to.

    ConsNo real growth available, if you start as a scooper the best you could do is manager. You will also go home smelling like milk.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep it up.
