Store -in-Charge (Former Employee), Dubai, DUJune 27, 2014
Before I join Marble Slab, I don't know how to make an ice cream. But after several days of training from some senior staff, I was able to easily adopt on the working environment and I can work without any assistance. It is fun working with my colleagues but I do not like the fact that they always put me on the Closing shift.

Assitant Manager/Training Manager (Former Employee), Amarillo, TXMay 20, 2014
Pros: free ice cream, meeting new people, becoming close friends with co-workers
Cons: low pay, no healthcare.
There was never a dull moment at work. I learned how to serve customers in a fast, efficient, and fun way, providing only the best product. I was always meeting new customers. I got along with the other employees there. They made my job more fun. The hardest part of this job was not being paid for the work I was doing. I was getting way lower than what – more... an assistant manager should be receiving but was doing the work of a manager. Our manager was not a typical manager, and I don't mean that in a good way. I was an assistant manager and did more for the store than the manager did. I wouldn't work there again because of management. The most enjoyable part of this job was working with not only co-workers but some of my best friends in life. Also, meeting new people every day and making sure they were given the best possible service and product. – less

It was ok
Combined Food Preparation and Serving Worker (Former Employee), Cypress, TXMay 19, 2014
Pros: good flavors
Cons: $$$
The staff is never more than 3 people. The service is not that bad, most of the time its decent. They have a variety of flavors. As far as working there, it's not that bad. It's never that busy in the day, but on the weekends you can expect to stay busy. most of the time if you are not busy, you just clean to stay busy.

A fast paced and exciting work place full of diversity
Food Service Worker (Former Employee), Asheville, NCMay 14, 2014
Pros: free ice cream card every shift, great co-workers, fast paced
Cons: poor hours, lazy younger managers
A typical shift at the Marble Slab Creamery was about five hours long. In the average shift one might serve 50-75 people. In the summer time or a warm day during the fall tourist season the number of customers went up to anywhere between 100-200 per shift. In this work environment I really learned how to manage my time as economically as possible. If – more... I ever found myself with a free moment that meant there was always something to staighten up or restock.
The older and more experienced managers at Marble Slab were some of my favorite people to work with and I considered them friends as well as co-workers. The younger and newer managers were a bit lazy and did a poor job training new employees. I personally had to explain many things to my new co-workers. When a customer came in to complain about the condition of the creamery, they scapegoated a friend of mine and fired her instead of confronting the newer managers responsible for (not) training.
My co-workers and I got along very well. I was eager to help them in anyway that I could and that attitude was always reciprocated. The hardest part of this job was maintaining the store during the busiest hours. A three row line to the door had to be served in fifteen minutes while still having to keep the facility clean and stocked. By the end of my time there, I developed the skills to keep up with this workload and my co-workers were always by my side.
The best part of working here was serving the customers. Since the Marble Slab Creamery is located in the tourism epicenter of Asheville, I got to meet people from all over the country and around the world. I myself love to travel so it was a great opportunity to talk to people about where they are from and why they came to Asheville. – less

Scooper (Former Employee), Corona, CAOctober 31, 2013
Pros: fun job, get to make customers happy, was given a lot of trust
Cons: hardly ever got paid on time, no chance for promotion or raise
I loved my work environment, the product and customers we served, and the Management were very nice people. However, I worked for this company for two years and hardly ever got paid on time. The five employees that worked there the entire time I was there remained at minimum wage and were never promoted even though each of us were entrusted to open/close – more... and run the store on our own much of the time. All of us were proficient enough at our jobs to manage the store and delivered great customer service. – less

Great fun job
Shift Leader (Former Employee), Anderson, SCSeptember 24, 2013
A typical day of work at Marble Slab Creamery was to scoop tons and tons of ice cream. This is a job where you learn to multitask and to be personable at the same time. Team was everything at marble slab because there was no way one person could run the whole store by oneself. The most enjoyable part of the job was people interaction.

Tedious, but good
Cashier (Former Employee), Cypress, TXAugust 18, 2013
Pros: managers/owners were great.
Cons: only part-time available.
It sometimes requires a lot of work, but the managers at the time (place got sold to someone else when I left) were good. Valued employees that worked hard and were good at their job and treated them with respect.
