    Excellent, I felt like I was part of a team and truly believed in the company's mission.

    I worked at Häagen-Dazs part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    My co-workers were really friendly and my boss made her expectations clear but was also friendly. I worked hard and was rewarded with consistent promotions and raises.

    Cons

    Occasionally, customers were hard to deal with. Sometimes I felt that I compensated for the laziness of my fellow workers because I cleaned more than they did.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make cleaning duties for each employee more clear.

    I worked at Häagen-Dazs part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I liked how it was a decent first job. I got basic customer service skills. Free ice cream is always cool and being in a mall location meant getting to know other mall employees and food court discounts. It wasn't hard at all, anyone can work there.

    Cons

    Unprofessional management, favoritism, and high expectations. Come on, it's an ice cream shop worked by a couple 16-17 year old kids, take it easy. I got promoted within the first 2 months. A year later, no further promotions. My manager was pretty immature and seemed to reprimand us everyday when he wasn't too good of a leader. Always on his phone and extremely uninterested in his job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow up. If you're going to have these expectations at least make us want to meet them.

    stress with ice cream?

    I worked at Häagen-Dazs part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Sampling free ice cream was always nice. Meeting new people. Learning how to make their products.

    Cons

    Customers can be very rude and my coworkers were terrible. Managers weren't professional at all. I never thought working in an ice cream store of all places would be so stressful!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean up your act!

    I worked at Häagen-Dazs

    Pros

    Pretty good pay for what you do and even better benefits (getting into disneyland for free). I met a lot of cool people

    Cons

    You feel stuck there because even though the whole experience isnt too shabby, you don't really have the opportunity to move up and even if you do, just working in an ice cream shop doesnt look that great on a resume.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The workers really take advantage of you because they feel their "superiors" are very laid back and can be immature so you should really consider who you give promotions to.

    A great job that promotes heavily from within.

    I have been working at Häagen-Dazs full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The people are really fun and the job itself is the best. Corporate maintains a really good relationship with the shops, being close enough to help out and provide incentives for the employees, but not so close as to seem like "big brother" is breathing down your neck.

    Cons

    The unprofessionalism sometimes gets a little out of hand. Their national meetings are notorious for everyone getting drunk and high.
