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

Pros

- it can be fun to work with the other team members
- experience directly interacting with customers, coworkers, and boss
- free pop (where I worked) and discounts on all items (50% on the job, 20% off the job)
- flexible schedule (I worked around high school, sports, going to my cabin, and other things)

Cons

- always on your feet
- no official breaks, if it's slow you can go in back and relax a little but if it's busy your whole shift.. you'll have sore legs when you get home.
- if you want a raise every 200 hours you actually have to pass a test where everything weighs and looks almost perfect. After working there several years I still can't get it all right one after another like that. Also you have to pass a written test.
- Price test every year on all items

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

    Pros

    requested days off, understanding, never really cares if you call out or late.

    Cons

    favoritism; mainly only hire girls cause they said they dont get along with most guys; managers need their own managers

    Advice to Management

    Learn to control your employees, dont be their friend, be their boss.
