    The ownership makes the difference

    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.

    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.

    If you're looking for a job on the side you can't beat making fudge.

    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

    Frustrating and yet fun.

    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.

    Pros

    Few angry customers when selling chocolate, stores typically in desirable locations to work, make some products in store.

    Cons

    Only typical retail work expect for ability to make products in store. Each store typically maintains 1 Asst. Manager & 1 Manager leaving only entry level jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to know managers at stores, each franchise has different owners & can be run differently.

    Pros

    Great part-time job. Great product that I felt comfortable selling to people. Most customers were very friendly since we were selling them candy. Job paid above minimum wage with opportunities for bonuses.

    Cons

    Wasn't much opportunity for growth, but I wasn't really expecting any as a part-time employee during college.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on keeping on.
