    My favorite job

    Cake Decorator (Former Employee) Kissimmee, FL

    ProsWonderful benefits for employees. You literally own a piece of the company because they give you shares of stock. Great people! Can easily move up in the company.

    ConsCustomer is always right and unfortunately you will follow rules the company provides however if the customer insists on having a manager come they override and give them what they want. Ends up making you feel stupid.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't be so quick to give in to customer complaints, maybe lying thieving customers are worth losing over making your employees look stupid.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    The Best of Both Worlds

    Customer Service Staff (Current Employee)

    ProsManagers are always looking out for people interested in training in other departments and areas. They make sure you're treated well most of the time, and keep you up to date on everything you need to know. They're very accepting of issues at home and grant time off and such accordingly.

    ConsPart timers don't get as many benefits however everyone is treated as equals. Managers are sometimes too lax with the rules or go over others heads, despite you being right.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't be a stickler for every little detail, but don't make your associates look like fools in front of customers, especially when the customer is wrong and just making a commotion.
