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

    Pros

    I worked at two different locations and the best part was the flexible schedule for students.

    Cons

    The biggest reason I left was the pay. Don't expect a raise or a very high starting pay because it is entry level and for students. However, even with increases in employee responsibility their was only minimal increases in pay.

    Advice to Management

    Don't complain about the little things because it is a sucky job and you will lose good help fast.
