    I worked at Oberweis Dairy part-time

    Pros

    Willing to allow part-time employees to work many hours.
    Strong team-oriented environment.

    Cons

    Very high turnover rate for part-time employees.
    The quality of employees that Oberweis typically hires is rather low. This was very frustrating, as many employees were quite unreliable.
    Was encouraged not to take breaks, even during 8+ hour shifts.

    Advice to Management

    Try and hire the best employees you can

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

    Pros

    The product was of great quality, and customer service was probably the biggest focus.

    Cons

    With my schedule as a student, it was difficult to work around my schoolwork.

    Advice to Management

    The atmosphere was very lax. I was a high school student, but that is one thing that stood out. It might have been because the majority of the staff was under the age of 25

    Pros

    Great with scheduling. Managers are very nice and fair to all employees. Great atmosphere to work in. Good promotion opportunity

    Cons

    The pay isn't really worth the amount of work they expect you to do or want to do. Compared to other companies I would say underpayed

    Advice to Management

    Raise pay

    I worked at Oberweis Dairy part-time

    Pros

    It was a great experience overall truly. Wish i didn't have to move or else i think i'd stay there for a while

    Cons

    There are no cons to be honest. I think this is one of the better jobs with great incentives towards progressions. Do well in the store and the whole team gets more money!

    Advice to Management

    Be more lenient on the lunch timings. Not everyone can eat under 10 minutes. Especially after working all day.
