    Pros

    I always are ice cream which is a plus, but it's not a hard job because you just give the customers what they want. They also give tips.

    Cons

    Working in the winter time was my least favorite thing because not a lot of people came in so it went by slow and we didn't make a lot of tips.

    Advice to Management

    I like how they are always coming up with new flavors and new ideas. It keeps things fun.

    Always standing, can be stressful in the summertime, no where to grow as a career.

    Advice to Management

    one female manager needs to go she has an attitude problem and doesn't care if she is rude to customers, will even pick fights with them and always has a rude attitude when helping customers, will have a hissy fit if it is not her way and gives away product like it is nothing because its her "friends". owner is nice but can take better care of his employees he underpays managers especially head manager she deserves more then anyone there and should be paid more so she can eventually retire and enjoy her life in peace. also he can be around his store to know whats going on behind his back or sell it already.
