    I have been working at Dairy Queen part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fun work environment, flexible scheduling, not too difficult, very guided

    Cons

    Messy, busy as heck, night shifts took forever to close, endless lines.

    Advice to Management

    Not really much advice, maybe schedule a person more a night. A lot of the problems are just the customers, management was cool.

    I worked at Dairy Queen part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I loved making ice cream cones and serving the customers. I also really enjoyed making the ice cream cakes in the afternoon when there were no customers.

    Cons

    My least favorite part was cleaning the bathrooms. It really wasn't that bad, though, as they were usually not that heavily used.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. It was a great starter job for me, and I like that all part-time employees are given a discount on the food while they are working!
