    I have been working at Rocky Mountain Chocolate part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Simple tasks, staff is friendly, training is easy to grasp

    Cons

    Management is messy, communication with management is disjointed, your opinions are not often taken into consideration

    Advice to Management

    If you are a student at UNC Charlotte, this will be a simple part-time job that you can do and have fun while you do it. For others, a long-term chance for opportunities isn't the best of ideas and I recommend you look for a position somewhere the management style isn't so easy to erode.

    Pros

    Great intro. to customer service, you get to sample sweets and making them can be pretty fun, at the place I worked they did give me all the days off that I asked for, and they were genuine nice employers

    Cons

    The schedule came out late in the week, low pay, no room for improvement, they were very picky about everything, they had cameras watching you in case you would do something wrong, they were always changing things -they couldn't find a good system-, they were very upset when you couldn't fill in for someone, and if you made something wrong and the total was over $15.00 they took it out of your paycheck.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so paranoid, figure out a better system that works, send out work schedules earlier

    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

    I have been working at Rocky Mountain Chocolate full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fast pace work environment, working with chocolate, flexible schedule. The company itself is comprised of genuine and friendly people.

    Cons

    Low wages, high work demands, no real opportunity for career growth, lack of timely support from corporate.

    Advice to Management

    The left hand doesn't always know what the right hand is doing.
    Need more brand exposure and don't rely so much on franchisees to do that work for them.
    Don't be so reluctant to change, Innovate for goodness sake.
