Fun place to work, short hours.
Pros: %50 discount during break and 30 minutes before and after a shift.
Cons: not enough hours given
Arrive at work on time, punch in on computer, scan the restaurant to see what needs to be cleaned or what garbage's need to be changed, do the tasks, when there is no work to be done, find work to be done, if there are no customers, read the list of duties and pick one, just to keep busy. If you work 4+ hours, you may take a break when the shift manager gives you one or ask to take one when it is not busy, Punch out, on your break, which lasts 15 min, you get whatever food you want to eat and sit at the back "break table", clean up your mess when your 15 minute break is over and return to the front cash, punch back in, when you are done all your assigned duties for the night, you will ask the manager on duty to check your area (drive thru, front..etc) and if your area is clean the manager tells you you are ready to go, you punch out and wait for your ride, or drive home.
I learned that at work you can make mistakes, but if you make too much, you risk your employment being terminated via e-mail. The management at Dairy Queen i found to be unacceptable, the shift managers on duty spent most of their time at the back on their cellphones rather then looking over the trainees/employees and doing their job. The head managers were friendly. I had the best team at Dairy Queen, everyone was nice, except for a few, everyone soon became friends and often spent time outside of work with one another, a job is a great way to meet friends. The hardest part of the job was the short hours and minimal shifts, the last 5 months of my employment at Dairy Queen I recieved 1 shift a week, which – more... usually lasted 3 hours or so (thats a $60 paycheque!) while others, with similar qualities got 4 - 5 shifts a week lasting about 4 - 8 hours (thats close to $100 more then i made!). The most enjoyable part of the job was the customers you got to meet, and the experiences and memories you gave them just by putting on a happy smile and being polite and patient while taking their orders. – less
