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

Pros

- it can be fun to work with the other team members - experience directly interacting with customers, coworkers, and boss - free pop (where I worked) and discounts on all items (50% on the job, 20% off the job) - flexible schedule (I worked around high school, sports, going to my cabin, and other things)

Cons

- always on your feet - no official breaks, if it's slow you can go in back and relax a little but if it's busy your whole shift.. you'll have sore legs when you get home. - if you want a raise every 200 hours you actually have to pass a test where everything weighs and looks almost perfect. After working there several years I still can't get it all right one after another like that. Also you have to pass a written test. - Price test every year on all items

    Pros

    Giving out ice cream is fun, relaxed

    Cons

    cleaning bathrooms, annoying customers, walk in freezer is very cold

    Advice to Management

    bribing employees with ice cream greatly increase morale :)

    I have been working at Dairy Queen part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good people. Awesome boss. Free smoothies and cheap food. Meet tons of interesting people

    Cons

    Owner is very cheap. He will not give raises. It took him 2.5 years to give me a 25 cent raise and o have never missed a day of work or called in sick. Money is the only thing that matters.

    Advice to Management

    None
