    Corporation = Good Franchise Owner = Not so good

    I worked at Friendly's Ice Cream full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The best reason to work for Friendly's is to gain experience. Lots of opportunity to deal with children and seniors.

    Cons

    No real cooking opportunity except for eggs. Most of the food is shipped from central location which guarantees fresh produce isn't fresh.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Franchise owners should be required to attend sensitivity training.
