    Pros

    Good Summer Job, but make sure the owner is not a lunatic. I worked with one who was paranoid, dishonest, and sneaky.

    Cons

    Employees were cheated out of money by owner shaving an hour here, an hour there off their worked hours. Most employees are kids, at their first job, who are vulnerable to this.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your employees, trust them. Do not take advantage wherever you can, then act betrayed when people quit. Pay people what they are due, and worth, as the law states you should.

    Pros

    Good hours, flexible shifts, work is relatively easy if you can memorize everything, not hard to satisfy most customers (it's ice cream, who can be upset about ice cream?) Pretty decent summer job.

    Cons

    Low pay, you often work by yourself which is 1) very stressful when you're trying to make ice cream, handle customers, and decorate cakes at the same time, and 2) dangerous if the store is located in a bad part of town. If one cent was missing it was your fault and not the computer's nor the credit card machine's error. The franchise owner was responsible for buying all of the machinery and mix-in ingredients, and often complained that the store "didn't have any money". If you're trying to pay for rent, bills, food, and school, it is impossible with this job.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate needs to keep a better eye on all the stores and determine which ones can stay afloat and which ones are faltering. Management needs better training on how to effectively train and communicate with their employees.

    Pros

    Learned lots of new things Free ice cream Nice Manager

    Cons

    Worked for free for a day of training for 5 and a half hours Overly particular and exacting about the presentation of decoration on cakes, cones etc. Gave me dirty uniform, gave me a large shirt without asking my size, I was expected to pay for it later Too many jobs to do, learn and be expected to perform During my interview the job description was poorly explained Dirty job, lots of cleaning required On call for a minimum wage job

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees always. Especially since the owner was paid by the youth employment program. If I had known the work load involved I would have never agreed to free labour. At the end of a very difficult work day I came away feeling exhausted, my arm and hand hurt for days and I felt unappreciated. Please don`t ask anyone new to a job to have a shift longer then three hours, as it`s overwhelming. Also don`t try and teach a new employee everything all at once. It`s better to ease into a job and it`s easier to retain information if it`s repetitive and gradual. Thank you.

    Pros

    Not much training is needed.

    Cons

    Paid was bad. As a server, I worked hard and was very nice to customers. I was still in High School and got paid only the minimum wage. After sometime, I asked for a raise. I got it, all 25 cents per hour of it. A few days later, federal minimum wage went up. The hours are terrible.

    Advice to Management

    Reward hard work and don't treat employees with fairness.
