It is a good job for either one's first occupation or as a part time occupation for some extra income.

DQ is a good job for anyone wanting a small part time job for extra income or any first time workers looking to gain experience. But outside of these two categories of workers DQ is not a good choice for anyone else.
Simple and easy work.
Random schedules that are posted only a short time before they are put into effect.

My overall review about dairy queen is low because I didn't have the best experience there. Making ice cream is very fun but there are so many negative employees. The workplace is not very sanitary and I don't believe that I would recommend anyone to apply there.
When the staff member are able to get along so easily, the work becomes fun. Everyone at Dairy Queen is super nice and understanding, we're almost like family. The work is varied and everyone learns to do a bit of everything which makes for an interesting work day.

Bosses were great and very considerate to personal lives of employees. Over the three years I had spent working at Dairy Queen I had never felt a reason to leave other than craving a change in scenery.

Show up in the early or late afternoon and work a pretty short shift. Learned a lot about the food industry and fast food. The management was great if you needed to come in a little late due to bus times or cancellations than they would shift it over. Manager and co-workers were nice and would rush to help me if it was needed. The hardest part of the job was keeping up as I was the only one in the kitchen you are expected to keep up with the orders that come flying in. The people were the most enjoyable part of the job if I ever needed help or needed something a co-worker would do their best to help me out

Family owned restaurant with a positive work environment and great Management. Developed leadership and interpersonal skills. Dealt with customer concerns and employee issues which at times would be tough but was a positive learning experience in the end and helped gain trust and faithfulness from customers and staff. Bi-weekly ADP Payroll input gave an exposure to the labor laws and employee rights. Weekly scheduling of up to 45 employees to ensure adequate staff. Great rapport with customers in the community.
