    Pros

    as a teenager this is a nice job to gain work experience and learn customer service skills. It was a great job and a fun environment! They really take time to train the employees and give a background to understand what the company is all about.

    Cons

    The temptation to eat all the foods is hard if you don't have self control. If you want to eat that stuff than this is the job for you!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I had no problems!

    I worked at Dairy Queen

    Pros

    Great co workers. They're fun and I made friends there. That is all the pro you'll ever get.

    Cons

    Horrible bosses. The owner was always there and breathing behind my neck. Not a flexible schedule. The same people open and close, the new people only get like 2 hours a day. Owners made me pick up a bun from the floor and use it in order for them to "save" money. I was pressured to do many Unorthodox things. Little pay for too much work. If you ever get an interview at the DQ in Hwy 6 and Yorktown in Houston, I recommend not to take it. The owners are always looking through the cameras, you are not allowed to go to the restroom for more than 2 mins. Horrible just horrible. No benefits whatsoever.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be manhandled by the owners.

    Pros

    Great work environment, wonderful staff and people. Overall great experience with the company just needed more of a challenge.

    Cons

    You do not get to pick the hours that you work, and promotions are hard to come buy. They may offer more money, but not much.
