    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Dairy Queen full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I had a flexible schedule and there was always work to be done. I enjoyed staying busy and teaching new employees the procedures and standards of Dairy Queen.

    Cons

    Lack of employees created too stressful of an environment for people. Also had way outdated equipment.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the business equipment and that way it'll become more enticing of a place to work at; eliminating the lack of employees issue.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Dairy Queen.

    Interview

    easy, the manager was very easy going and made me feel at ease. It was my first interview so they could probably tell that I was nervous. They described the job process to me and it seemed link a simple enough task.
