It's okay

Cashier (Current Employee)
Spokane, WA

I have been working at Sweet Factory part-time for less than a year

ProsNice customers. You get to be around candy

ConsOld technology. No scanner and you have to enter everything by sku number which I find kind of weird since all my past jobs never used this. My manager also kind of put me down during my interview/beginning of job which made me feel very intimidated to even continue with the job.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet better technology, would make checking out for customers a lot easier

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

It was a very good learning experience.

Cashier, Sales, Restocker, Etc (Former Employee)

I worked at Sweet Factory

ProsMost of the time, candy lovers come in and you get to bond over your mutual love of candy. I enjoyed working there because of all the different kinds of people I met. Co-workers, when I actually saw them were great and my boss was a very nice person.

ConsDownside of working there would have to be working with the prices they sold candy at. It can be pretty expensive and not alot of people have the kind of money to spend $3 on a quarter pound of candy.

Advice to Senior ManagementJust one thing, lower your prices just a little bit. People come in and I see the look on their faces saying "no way!"

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
