    Pros

    This product is fantastic. It's great to sell, exciting to make, and fun to brand. The best part is the people that you work with. They are fun, hard working, and intelligent people.

    Cons

    Processes are not as great as they could be. The stores aren't equipped to handle the high volume of customers that you deal with. The boutique style store was infused with shakes, ice cream, and dipping. That means that you have two customers: Those who want a box and want to be coached through their choices, and those who want their product, and they want it NOW. That's difficult to balance.

    Pros

    Great product and fun job

    Cons

    Company gives you very little payroll hours to run the store so the Store Manager must work a lot being the only salaried employee.

    The district manager advised that the manager send home employees if the store was slow.. understandable, but worked for a considerable less number of hours

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Chocolate. Customers are offered a free piece of chocolate once a month as well as a free sample every time they visit.

    Cons

    no internal promotions, poor pay, work every holiday-mandatory. Fill in for managers who disappear suddenly with no recognition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seriously look within for managers to promote. Stop taking advantage of Assistant Managers and keyholders.

    Pros

    Team work is important!! Contests and motivation (as a team). Chocolate! fun job, not just about selling and working on a register. Tight knit teams, like a protective family.

    Cons

    seasonal hours and business. not a lot of internal promotions. Don't often take employees feedback into consideration. no real associate selling structure.
