    So so company

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Best reason to work at cold stone is the flexible schedule for all employees

    Cons

    They are allowed to pay under minimum wage because they consider the employees waiters/waitresses even though employees don’t make nearly as much tips.

    An easy-going, fun place to work

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Overall: -Scheduling is generally consistent -Tasks are all very easy or are accompanied by thorough directions -Young and fun college/high school age crew -Minimal skills needed -On the job training -Fun atmosphere -Get to keep tips at the end of the shift -Most days are fast-paced so time goes by quickly -Customers are normally in a good mood -Occasional down-time to hang out or take a quick break -Good customer service experience To summarize, his is a great first job for anyone looking for work experience or just looking to make extra money. I can justify the minimum wage hourly salary only because minimal skills and education are needed for this job. You get tipped pretty generously most shifts so that makes up for the crappy pay. If you dislike people or do not like to have fun, this may not be the job for you because it requires you to sing jingles for tips and interact with all different types of people. If you are outgoing or can force yourself to be outgoing, it is about the most simple, laid back job you could have.

    Cons

    -Most starting employees make no more than minimum wagetarting employees make no more than minimum wagetarting employees make no more than minimum wage and most do not or can not advance -No way to really advance except if chosen to be a shift leader, basically, which does not pay much more than min. wage -Closing shift generally kind of sucks with all the clean-up work -There is no real formal training, which can be hard to deal with if you are not adaptable -Owner doesn't really seem like he knows his own business much at all -Younger managers can be unreliable at times -'Benefits'/perks are not as great as one might think. only 10% off the products, which is probably 50 cents or less off -Turnover rate is fairly high This job is not the best, but also not the worst. If you are not looking to stay with this business for long (i.e. summer job, etc.), it is pretty decent and overall I cannot complain too much. You get quick at cleaning up at the end of the day and usually get out at a decent time. If you are a good employee, you may get promoted to a shift leader/key holder. Just respect your manager as well as the owner and you will be treated very well at Cold Stone.
