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

    Pros

    -Great first job, I worked here for 2 years
    -very flexible hours
    -most coworkers were very friendly and easy to work with
    - most of our regular customers were always a joy to see
    -a chance to earn paid time off, even part-time

    Cons

    -management constantly changed
    - a manager told me to 'get over it' when a coworker was saying inappropriate things towards me
    -Can be very stressful at times

    Advice to Management

    my advice to management would be to listen to your employees more when they come to you with issues and learn to properly manage a schedule; because of this lead to very stressful shifts, that honestly made me want to quit several times
