    Pros

    working with great coworkers and learning how to take and make orders was fun. People were nice and hours were good.

    Cons

    The customers were sometimes rude and closing was hard when they came 15 min before close. if we were slow, then it was just wiping down counters constantly.

    I have been working at Dairy Queen part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Work around your availability for hours very well. Give many opportunities to receive pay raises. Flexible and understand when it comes to personal issues regarding your work life and home life. Every one is friendly and you get to know the customers that come in on the regular

    Cons

    Scheduling manager gets schedules and day sheets mixed up a lot so it can be often that you will be called into work thinking it is your day off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on schedule management better and try to leave better notes for General Manager to see so all employees can be benefited and get good opportunities for raises and noticed for their hard work.
