    I worked at Smoothie King part-time

    Pros

    The environment at the one I work at was always fun. I never dreaded going to work. My coworkers were fun and always helped with issues and the manager/owner was awesome very understand when a porblem came up and worked with you. I worked at a drive thru only so opening and closing was easy and we were out by the time the store closed. Still my favorite food job and wouldn’t mind working here again.

    Cons

    Only downside was we got paid minimum wage and no one got a raise. One of my friends worked there since that store opened and didn’t get a single raise.

    I worked at Smoothie King full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It was a great job to have working through college and I made some great friends through the process.

    Cons

    This isn't really a con for me, but if you are the kind of person who doesn't like to stay busy at work (I love staying busy because it makes the shift go by faster and keeps me occupied), then you will be miserable. The location that I worked at was slammed all the time.
