I worked at Friendly's Ice Cream full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

I liked my team, loved my guests,

Cons

Made to run too tight all the time and got beat up for it. In this business, Friendly's is the only company where the manager has to seat, serve, cook, do dishes and mop the floor in order to make an unreasonable labor percentage

Advice to Management

Stop making changes without talking to the people in the field

    I worked at Friendly's Ice Cream part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    When i was working there, the had me working as soon as i came in the first day to check on my resume. Slightly above minimum wage, requiring no previous skills.

    Cons

    Management was terrible. They refused to hire more people when it was desperately needed. Because of that orders were frantic and constantly falling behind making the customers at your window yelling at the employees while they worked. Hopefully it was limited to the Friendly's I worked at. It is closed now.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people
