    I have been working at Dairy Queen full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Feeling of teamwork, generally cleanly working environment. Not a bad place to work, free lunch shift food.

    Cons

    Challenges include fast paced work if you like to work slow. And tight space with not much privacy among Co workers.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Dairy Queen (Mount Vernon, IA).

    Interview

    I had to fill out a physical application and was called back a few weeks later. The store owner sat with me and we basically chit chatted (I think she was trying to get a sense of my character/personality?). Then I was hired right on the spot and given orientation.
