    The ownership makes the difference

    I worked at Rocky Mountain Chocolate

    Pros

    You get to eat all the chocolate you want! As a franchise I had a great amount of influence on all aspects of our store.

    Cons

    Most locations are franchises, and therfore you are at the beck and call of your owner. I have worked for two RMCF stores and the ownership made the difference. At my last position in Denver I was overworked, underpaid and underappreciated!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As a Company RMCF has little intervention at the store level, I would advise them to have a training seminar for their owners in order to provide them a brief glimpse as to what their responsibilities will entail.

    I have been working at Rocky Mountain Chocolate full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fast pace work environment, working with chocolate, flexible schedule. The company itself is comprised of genuine and friendly people.

    Cons

    Low wages, high work demands, no real opportunity for career growth, lack of timely support from corporate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The left hand doesn't always know what the right hand is doing.
    Need more brand exposure and don't rely so much on franchisees to do that work for them.
    Don't be so reluctant to change, Innovate for goodness sake.

    I worked at Rocky Mountain Chocolate part-time

    Pros

    Free chocolate. And a pay check every other week.

    Cons

    Extremely unorganized. Couldn't get a weekly schedule out by an appropriate day in advance. And when I would arrive for my shift, more than half the time no one knew what I was supposed to be working on that day.

    I have been working at Rocky Mountain Chocolate full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The culture is laid back and fun.
    You get to eat candy at work.
    You make sweets all day.

    Cons

    You wil get sick of chocolate after you've put on a few pounds.
    You can get pretty board in the off season.
    Not a career job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lead by example- if you work hard, so will the underdogs

    I worked at Rocky Mountain Chocolate

    Pros

    It was fun! People are happy when you sell them chocolate, and are generally very interested, and not very cranky. And when they are, it's ridiculous so you don't care, really.

    Cons

    The managers and owners didn't actually know anything about the business. The night supervisor and myself and the girls, seemed to be the only ones who knew what was up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop treating the franchises like crap.
