Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 22 March 2018
This was a fun first job! You get to try all of the apples through the daily samples. I got to work closely with the manager who hired me. I learned a lot about chocolate, and the basics of cash handling. You get to make different products daily. Full time employees are trained to do more than part time employees. The owner of the franchise was tough on part time employees for not knowing everything that the full time employees were trained on. Would definitely recommend for a first job!
Working for Rocky Mountain was a great experience.
Retail Assistant Manager/Store Manager (Former Employee) – British Columbia – 14 March 2018
I really enjoyed my time working for Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, I would recommend it to anyone with a passion for chocolate and retail. The management and ownership is great and really listen to you when needed.
Store Manager (seasonal) (Former Employee) – Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON – 2 February 2018
very busy and very understaffed, dealing with a lot of tourist, so the language barrier can get challenging. Long hours, with no extra pay. Management/owners are not very nice people to work for and can't keep staff.
Manager (Former Employee) – Burlington, ON – 5 January 2018
I found the job to be a lot of fun when it came to the creative part of it, i.e decorating, creating things, coming up with ideas etc. But as far as communication goes towards management and is something that was a HUGE downside to working for the particular store. I learned quite a bit with some training, I felt I had to learn a lot of my own day to day. The atmosphere of the staff was great. I also found that some staff are lazy and don't assist or fill the role of their positions making your work load heavier. I found the hardest part about the job was the lack of communication, made it difficult to plan things and get everyone on the same page. The most enjoyable part of the job would be the creative aspect.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Vaughan, ON – 30 December 2017
This jab was overall quite enjoyable and educating. All employees at Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory get the opportunity to learn many new chocolate production techniques allowing for the acquisition of many new skills. The management is fair and the expectations are clear. With proper dedication and willingness to learn it is easy for anyone to master this job.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 5 November 2017
Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory was everything you expected of for working in a chocolate store. Other than all of the sweets, the nature of the customers made the experience joyful and pleasant. The team was also very helpful and made the environment feel welcoming and natural.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Nanaimo, BC – 26 September 2017
You have no work life balance, I agree with the other review someone else left, you are required to pay for parking if you have a shift in the ferry terminal. You do not get reembursed for that money. They have no standards for health code. Staff constantly tell you if you drop product on the floor to just put it back to sell to customers. I didn't stick around for long.
Most staff were pleasant to work with
Management very controlling, pay for parking, no time off, under staffed
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Nanaimo, BC – 4 September 2017
Change schedule at last minute, don't honour time off requests (constantly scheduled during class time), no HR standards at all. Management breaks promises. No work/life balance. Food safety standards are non-existent (actually felt bad serving certain things to customers). She manages through fear and never admits her own mistakes (of which she makes many).
OPERATRIONS MANAGER (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 19 July 2017
It was an amazing experience working with Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory. RMCF offered phenomenal coaching, training, and opportunities to grow. RMCF encourages employees to be creative and to try new tactics to be successful in every department of the industry.
great work environment and excellent people to work for

CSR - Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Nanaimo, BC – 8 March 2017
The management at the Nanaimo location is VERY poor, raises were promised by certain dates, and when those dates came excuses would be made. For the Ferries location, you either have to pay out of your own pocket daily to park, or park of the road and risk a ticket- many other vendors in the Ferries location offer to pay for their employees parking. Management bases decisions off of hear say and rumors from employees.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – St. John's, NL – 21 February 2017
-Did a lot of work for very little pay -No job security -Very limited number of work hours per week -Management favored some employees. -Even if you like chocolate, the work conditions aren't favorable -Customers were nice.
Production (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 17 January 2017
