    I worked at Carvel part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I could eat for free while on the job, and had a discount when I wasn't working. I got along well with my fellow employees, and overall had a great time. Cake decorating and making waffle cones were the funnest parts.

    Cons

    The sanitation! We frequently had ants in the lobby, flies in the peanut butter soft serve, and one time found two dead mice in the sink. I took photos in case anyone needs evidence. The management didn't care about the place's appearance, and let the sign get damaged to the point where people wondered if the business was still open.

    Advice to Management

    The boss I had was horrible. Everyone worked 3 hour shifts 3-4 days a week. Instead of giving you extra hours the boss himself was in there making and serving the customers. They were the cheapest people alive. They also broke many health code violations.

    Pros

    Even at a small Ice Cream shop you can work hard, and be happy.
    The manager was great, and the owner was not bad as well.

    Cons

    Ice Cream is expensive, it's hard to justify to customers why it's so expensive sometimes.
    However as an employee you get a discount, nice perk.
