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

Pros

The one I worked at was busy all the time, so my shifts usually went by fast. I got a lot of hours and got more money when I worked at night. I liked the people I worked with so I didn't mind being there. I didn't want to be a manager because I was in school, but they did tend to move people up a lot.

Cons

It's food service--lots of cleaning, messy, rude customers. You work hard, especially when the front and drive-thru are busy at the same time. And some of the customers were horrible.

    I have been working at Dairy Queen full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I was fortunate to have close connection with the owners, district manager, and other corporate personnel.
    Advancement opportunities.
    Energetic environment.
    Acceptance (as a non-conforming female; lesbian)

    Cons

    Drama — it is a "high school" job for most, so a little drama is expected (anywhere you go). However, I struggled with management not addressing harassing text messages.
    Combined 5 years of service with the same store (took a 2.5 year leave) and was disappointed with no offers for medical insurance; vacation time; etc. as a full-time manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your lower employees. The turnover rate can be adjusted if you just listen.
