Most of them talk to each other in their own language and you'll know when they talk about you.
Food Preparer & Helper (Former Employee) –  Saskatoon, SK16 July 2017
My "mentor" was not the best person to talk to compared to other people I've worked with in other places and the summary speaks for itself.Most of them talk to each other in their own language and you'll know when they talk about you.

Employee (Current Employee) –  1003 Dundas St E, Whitby, ON L1N 2K411 July 2017
During a work day a typical employee will have to jump around from task to task, weather its doing garbage's or cooking food in the back to taking an order up front a typical employee will do all the jobs that my Dairy Queen location has to offer.

Fun and Caring Community While Working
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB3 July 2017
First you get dressed and maybe chat a bit before starting to work. Then people rotate and take turns at making ice cream and the cashier position. Later on, we share clean up duties. I have learned how to interact with all the different kinds of people and have a overall fund time doing so. The management was adequate, although more permanent schedules would be desired. Culture is somewhat diverse. The hardest part of the job would be clean up. And the most enjoyable would be the co-workers and interactions between people. Also the light atmosphere is awesome.
Pros
Discounts on ICE CREAM!
Cons
More people per shift is desired.
