I have been working at Rocky Mountain Chocolate full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The culture is laid back and fun.
You get to eat candy at work.
You make sweets all day.

Cons

You wil get sick of chocolate after you've put on a few pounds.
You can get pretty board in the off season.
Not a career job.

Advice to Management

Lead by example- if you work hard, so will the underdogs

    Pros

    You get to eat all the chocolate you want! As a franchise I had a great amount of influence on all aspects of our store.

    Cons

    Most locations are franchises, and therfore you are at the beck and call of your owner. I have worked for two RMCF stores and the ownership made the difference. At my last position in Denver I was overworked, underpaid and underappreciated!

    Advice to Management

    As a Company RMCF has little intervention at the store level, I would advise them to have a training seminar for their owners in order to provide them a brief glimpse as to what their responsibilities will entail.


  2. "Manager and head cook"

    Pros

    Leanring about pastry arts and chocolate (if you like it)
    Great experience when dealing with customers
    Sales vocabulary is extended, polite and refined
    Lots of freedom to create new product
    Taking breaks whenever was needed and not so busy
    Excellent coworkers

    Cons

    Difficult to fill this part since each store is individually owned. The owners of the store I worked at were amazing people, very fun and extremelly engaged with their business. However they would expect too much from me, giving me unreasonable demands and time frames. Very disorganized people, wanted everybody to be as involved in their business as they were and would not pay what they were asking for. Worked there for a long while and was overworked and way too underpaid.

    Advice to Management

    More organization when it comes to cooking and high volume seasons. Pay your employees the same way you expect them to do the job or they will lose interest and will feel underappreaciated. Good experience overall though.
