Cashier, Drive-Thru, Chill, Janitorial (Former Employee), Chestermere, ABMay 30, 2013
Pros: co-workers
Cons: not enough hours
I learned how to make the ice cream treats such as dilly bars, buster bars, ice cream sandwiches, blizzards, etc. I cleaned the restaurant such as sweeping and mopping floors/bathrooms, cleaning windows and dining area. The management was good, easy to talk to them and get help from. The co-workers I worked with were fun to be around and easy to talk – more... to, you could make friends there easily. There wasn't really a moment when it got hard, but when we were busy working during our lunch rush we had to be fast paced. My most enjoyable part of my job was getting to know people and talking to the costumers, and cleaning also gave you that peace of mind at work. – less

Head Cook/Kitchen Manager (Current Employee), Saskatoon, SKMay 24, 2013
The same tasks every shift. I learned some craftsmanship by doing extra projects with one of the managers. One of the two managers creates a positive work place. I love my co-workers. The hardest part about the job is doing the same thing every single day. The most enjoyable part of the job is the working with genuinely nice and funny people.

Amazing co-workers
Cashier (Former Employee), Calgary, ABApril 12, 2013
Start off the shift with a good clean and then begin to prepare all products. I've learned how to connect with the customers and provide what they want, always putting them first. Hardest part is the long constant hours in the summer but the management and co-workers are always there to lend a helping hand.

Supervisor (Former Employee), Peace River ABMarch 23, 2013
Pros: free lunch
Cons: a lot of customers to deal with
I worked as a supervisor and dealt with the customers that had any problems with our service. I learned that an expectation is set out for you with the level of competency assumed of you. I managed the shifts and closed the tills at the end of the night. The hardest part of the job was customer service. The most enjoyable part of the job was running – more... the shifts – less

Cashier (Former Employee), Spruce Grove, ABMarch 9, 2013
Pros: free pop
Cons: cement floors
I remember my first day, they teach you how to make their signature ice cream cone. It was easy, once you go the hang of. I had some struggles, being my first job and all. Though, they were really patient and also willing to help. Alot of standing and alot of cleaning, but that fine. Every job does that.

The best first job
Cashier (Former Employee), Tsawwassen, BCMarch 3, 2013
Working at Dairy Queen was the first job that I ever had, and it certainly taught me a lot. I learned very quickly how to multi-task and make friends, as well as the skills needed for good customer service. Due to the fact that it was a fairly fast paced environment most of the time, I learned how to pick up on things quickly and to self delegate. After – more... working there for a while, I also began to gain more responsibility, such as helping my manager train new employees, and training them one on one when the manager wasn't there. It was definitely a great learning experience! – less

Great starter job and flexible.
Supervisor (Former Employee), Fredericton, NBFebruary 21, 2013
Pros: flexible hours
Cons: double booking shifts
Dairy Queen is a great starter job, they hire a lot of high school students to give them a chance in the working world. I worked at least 40 hours a week split between 2 different locations. At this job I learned many key skills such as customer service, working with others, how to deal with conflicts at work and many others. The hardest part of the – more... job would be working with so many high school students, there tended to be shifts with almost only students of that age group. The most enjoyable part of this job was being able to make friends from the workplace. – less
