    I worked at TCBY part-time

    Pros

    Ice cream
    Fun coworkers
    See the grind of franchise life
    Depending on the owner, they will give you a lot of responsibilities
    Franchisee wrote me a letter of rec for college

    Cons

    Lots of cleaning
    coworkers will just blow off scheduled time, cause we were just kids
    Late hours for school nights

    Advice to Management

    More moral and leadership building
    more meetings, It was easy to feel out of the loop
    TCBY was my 1st real job. It was over 15 years ago, I am still fond of my time there
