    Internal training needs to be more robust, and there are still opportunities to unify some fragmented processes and departments. The speed of change has been inconsistent in the recent past.

    Pros

    The training is very detailed and easy to learn. It is a very fun place to work, as well as rewarding. Ice cream is always funnnnn.

    Cons

    Just like any restaurant job it gets busy at time so demand is high therefore high stress. Long hours but breaks are always fulfilled at my location.

    Advice to Management

    I really do consider myself lucky to work for such a company. There is going to be a lot of changes down the road that really look like they will help with the organization of day to day operations. I feel my job is fun and fulfilling as well. Thanks Friendlys I enjoy being a memory maker.
