    I worked at Rocky Mountain Chocolate full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Room for creativity and plenty of confectionery recipes to learn and try. Good equipment.

    Cons

    Pay and benefits are poor. Quantity product over quality. Move on if you want to work with chocolate as a career.

    Advice to Management

    Find managers that appreciate the process of making candy and not just focused on sales. It kind of kills the joy of making.

    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

    Diabetes, Management, People that have worked their for years treat you like they're the boss, Bossy people, always looking for something to criticize you, small store so employees are constantly keeping a eye on you

    Instead of focusing on negative things, it would be nice if you'd acknowledge someone for what they've done right... Like ***Achieving store sales

    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.

    I worked at Rocky Mountain Chocolate part-time

    Pros

    Free chocolate. And a pay check every other week.

    Cons

    Extremely unorganized. Couldn't get a weekly schedule out by an appropriate day in advance. And when I would arrive for my shift, more than half the time no one knew what I was supposed to be working on that day.
