    I worked at Dairy Queen

    Pros

    Everyone Who worked there seemed to get along very well. They were all very helpful in pointing out what could make their jobs easier. That made My job easier.

    Cons

    The only con that I came across was that there never seemed to be enough time during the course of a day to get everything done that was desired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If You hire another maintenance person give them enough time/hours to get the job done.

    I worked at Dairy Queen part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very flexible with schedule, while being a student I needed time off for studying and family vacations. Learned good customer service skills.

    Cons

    Minimum wage... Not many raises, and I believe I was hard working and liked by management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on giving some more raises. More steady schedules. Better mats for the floor. Organization is key, sometimes hectic with little not knowing what to do.

    I worked at Dairy Queen part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    good for a first job, and they were very flexible with my hours as I was still in high school. Fun environment

    Cons

    There were no benefits, only received discount on break, minimum wage pay which s difficult for anyone but high school students to live off of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider some better type of benefit for the employees to attract more than high school students

    I worked at Dairy Queen part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Worked with my high school schedule, generally a clean place to work, discounts on ice cream and hot meals.

    Cons

    Management would play on Facebook and definitely played favorites. They often gossiped about other employees and you were always on call every weekend. Often times I worked more than the legal 20 hours for a high school student. No benefits for pt or ft employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your managers to be hard working and treat people with fairness. Offer benefits of some sort.

    I worked at Dairy Queen part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Had an excellent boss and was very flexible with the hours in an emergency or when you gave him a heads up in about a week before you needed them off.

    Cons

    Some people weren't the greatest to train, and you could tell they didn't want to be there. They didn't get the concept of when you come to work, it's work life and not your home life that's full of distractions.
