Pros

It was my first job that I ever had and gave me plenty of experience. I even was promoted to Shift Leader.

Cons

I was paid far too little for the amount of work that was expected of me daily.

    -incredibly rude customers (but that could just be the area)
    -boss hiring too many high school kids and cutting other peoples hours
    -boss never listens to the needs of employees
    -no room to grow, supervisors only get a .25 cent raise for double the duty
    -just dont work at this dairy queen
    -too little pay for all the work we do
    -boss needs to be a bit more strict on flaky employees
    -the uniform is ugly
    -kids from the high school across the street are disgusting, messy and stupid
    -if it's a rainy day, they call you and cancel your shift, no questions asked
    -little training
    -unprofessional

    Advice to Management

    Please give the people who were working here the longest a raise above minimum, supervisors should be getting paid at least 12$/hr. It's ridiculous. Stop hiring so many people when you can't even give the current employees proper hours.

    Pros

    I loved working there. Manager was really nice and so were the co-workers. Be nice to everyone and you'll be treated fairly.

    Cons

    There is no particular downside. Except usual angry customers which is common in every company or franchise. Good place to work
