Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
it is a good place to work but not for long periods of time because there isn’t a lot of staff and it is always very busy. good for part time people or after school job.

The job was terrible

The pay was terrible, only $13 until you were 18 but they never gave me shifts because they would have to pay me more. They never scheduled any shifts for me. The environment was not overall friendly.


Very little pay, hard to get shifts

Would not recommend:)

No vacation time. No benefits. Rude management and coworkers who yell at you in front of customers. Save yourself the trouble. I worked there for 3 weeks. 2 new girls cried their first week and 1 already quit. (Not including myself)ProsDiscountsConsRude coworkers. One break. Yelling, hostile work environment

Overall job

Not payed properly. Not trained properly. Owner has few support for staff and the work they do. Management tries their best but has little help from owner. Too much responsibility falls on the “good” staff and are expected to do everything. No benefits.


Discounts, free pop.

Fun, Easygoing job

Good beginners job. I found the workplace culture to be easygoing and fun for the most part. The job is pretty low stress aside from when it's summer and you have got to make a bajillion blizzards. Overall, nice starter job that you probably shouldn't stay at for more than a couple years just because it doesn't seem to advance your resume thar much.


Stress-free, flexible hours


Rushes a bit stressful

Fun for teens

when i first got this job i was so excited. management was great and the employees were all so friendly. the manager was super chill with scheduling for students. that was until new management came along. the new manager that took over was TERRIBLE. no respect for anyone and no promotions or noticeable raises were given. after working there for two years i only got a raise for an extra 50 cents. otherwise it was super fun and making ice cream for work was actually enjoyable.

Fun and easy

Great place to work met a lot of people shifts were okay some hours were long. It’s nice to get food at work and it’s cheaper than with high grocery prices

You don't get paid for training which sometimes takes multiple days to complete .Same can be said for the number of hours you have to work overtime (unpaid). If things get busy, expect not get a break.

Fun but stressful

Making blizzards was fun but it can get very stressful. worked at a food court, usually only two people worked. One at front and one at kitchen, very stressful.




mentally tiring, good first job

Low pay but alright job

It was a job, low pay but good people. I worked there for several years. Flexible hours and always something to do. Good beginner job but wouldn't expect a lavish lifestyle on the wage.

Easy first job

Its decent job for students and as a first job. But after a while it gets boring as there is nothing new and not many advancement possible. At my location we get 50%off our meal on break.

Decent Starter Job

The workplace culture was terrible, and many employees quit because of it. The pay was quite good. They didn't allow for a good work-life balance and expected you to work a lot of hours, which made hindered my studies.


Lots of hours, good pay


Poor work culture, work - life balance

basically highschool

The jobs are good but it's a very gossipy place. The managers are the worst for it. If you keep to yourself and do your work you'll be fine. I found the icecream/cake side of things pretty fun/artsy.


discounted food, consistent hours

Honestly bad.

They watched a funeral one time during store hours and played it out loud.. and the managers were petty towards the employees and if they didn’t like you it wasn’t hard to tell because they were aggressive towards the people they didn’t like. You aren’t even aloud free food/ drink and you don’t get breaks.


never got a break, no free lunches, horrible management

Good first time job

Overall an ok place to work. Good for students or as a first time job for someone looking for the experience. You get 50% off a meal while on shift so that’s a bonus! Most shifts are evening shifts. Not all that great for someone who’s got a family at home. No benefits.


50% off meals on shift


No benefits, mostly night shifts

Bad management

My Co-workers are great but management is poor. Most of the equipment in the restaurant is broken and has been broken for years. I almost never receive my checks on time.


Irregular Pay periods

Toxic place to work

This is the worst place for anyone to work. Management are users, they don't care about employees. The pay is really low, you get to work almost everyday with low hours and you get sent home because it's not busy.


50 percent off lunches


Short notice schedule, low pay

One of the best jobs I had

Would happily work there again. When I got hurt they were extremely accommodating and often checked in on me. When I did return to work they would make sure I was still ok. Raises came every few months based on work effort. Love you guys.
