Great franchise for entry level jobs, especially in confection industry.

Assistant Manager (Former Employee)
Boulder, CO (US)

I worked at Rocky Mountain Chocolate full-time for more than a year

ProsFew angry customers when selling chocolate, stores typically in desirable locations to work, make some products in store.

ConsOnly typical retail work expect for ability to make products in store. Each store typically maintains 1 Asst. Manager & 1 Manager leaving only entry level jobs.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet to know managers at stores, each franchise has different owners & can be run differently.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Unorganized

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Rocky Mountain Chocolate part-time

ProsFree chocolate. And a pay check every other week.

ConsExtremely 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Owner/Operator

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Rocky Mountain Chocolate

ProsWe have owner our chocolate factory for almost four years and were able to pay it off in two with the profits it has created. It is an easy business model and the franchisor allows a lot of freedoms.

ConsGetting fat from all the chocolate we eat!! No seriously, there are not many cons.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

If you're looking for a job on the side you can't beat making fudge.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Bloomington, MN (US)

I have been working at Rocky Mountain Chocolate full-time for more than a year

ProsThe culture is laid back and fun.
You get to eat candy at work.
You make sweets all day.

ConsYou 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 Senior ManagementLead by example- if you work hard, so will the underdogs

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Frustrating and yet fun.

Shift Lead (Former Employee)
Halifax, NS (Canada)

I worked at Rocky Mountain Chocolate

ProsIt was fun! People are happy when you sell them chocolate, and are generally very interested, and not very cranky. And when they are, it's ridiculous so you don't care, really.

ConsThe managers and owners didn't actually know anything about the business. The night supervisor and myself and the girls, seemed to be the only ones who knew what was up.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop treating the franchises like crap.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

The ownership makes the difference

Manager (Former Employee)
Denver, CO (US)

I worked at Rocky Mountain Chocolate

ProsYou get to eat all the chocolate you want! As a franchise I had a great amount of influence on all aspects of our store.

ConsMost locations are franchises, and therfore you are at the beck and call of your owner. I have worked for two RMCF stores and the ownership made the difference. At my last position in Denver I was overworked, underpaid and underappreciated!

Advice to Senior ManagementAs a Company RMCF has little intervention at the store level, I would advise them to have a training seminar for their owners in order to provide them a brief glimpse as to what their responsibilities will entail.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
