    I have been working at Dairy Queen full-time

    Pros

    Lots of rgeat co-workers, many long-term employees who really love the brand.

    Cons

    Long-term employees sometimes look at my newer executives as outdated with antiquated procedures.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer more internal training for all levels of the organization, not just upper management

    I worked at Dairy Queen full-time

    Pros

    I learned a lot about customer service and leadership.

    Cons

    Unfair management that play favorites. Each of the 4-6 different managers make you go by different rules. Poor schedule organization. If business is slow you'll be broke. I have been/seen people be sent home within 5 minutes or an hour within the shift. Unlean environment. I have seen so many health violations. I have personally seen food ( oreos, burgers, cups) be dropped on the floor and MANAGEMENT including GM (Bruce) force employees to serve it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your organization together. Stop picking favorites based on attraction. Start following policy.

    for most workers this is their first job

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    make sure that the people are doing their jobs and that someone isn't getting stuck with all of the tasks. Also make sure to reward the workers who are doing a exceptional job instead of treating all of the workers the same.
