We worked hard, and definitely earned our money. Some things could be different, like breaks and a little bit more pay. Overall had fun and enjoyed the experience.

Great Place for a First Job
Laborer (Former Employee), Stayner, ONNovember 25, 2015
Pros: Good Staff
Cons: Very overbearing management
Dairy Queen is a nice place to start working, especially for a first job. The average labor in a day is not heavy when kitchen staff (people prefer the ice cream more often than the food). They will train you to use the chemicals and cleaners they use properly and the small location makes this a very easy job. The staff was probably the best part of the job as they are all friendly and work oriented. The management of Dairy Queen is very strict but forgiving. They will not make it the end of the world on small mistakes, but they will make a point for more grievous mistakes.

Upbeat workplace with great co-workers
Server/Cashier (Former Employee), Thunder Bay, ONNovember 9, 2015
Pros: 50% off food during your break
Cons: Only get discounts while you're on break
A typical day at work would be busy and fast-paced. I learnt how to make every kind of blizzard along with how to improve my communication skills with customers along with solving situations. Management was somewhat understanding but would publicly write about workers on the backboard. My coworkers were great to work with, they were very positive and hard-working. The hardest part of the job was simply keeping my uniform clean due to working with ice cream and candy pieces. In conclusion, the most enjoyable part of the job was getting to know new people and seeing the smiles on customers faces.

Pros: you got 50% off food while you worked your schedule and 20% when you weren't working.

Well, not enough hours it was part time but if it rained and it wasn't busy even if you are scheduled to go in you may work a hour or something and they never paid for three hours. They will send you home.
