Rien à redire sur la marque, mais le franchisé laissait à désirer. Nous étions laissés à nous-mêmes la plupart du temps, ce qui a sans doute nuit à l'image de marque. Malgré que mon poste ne le reflétait pas, je faisais plusieurs tâches de gestion nécessaires, car il y avait un clair manque de leadership de mon patron. La flexibilité d'horaire était toutefois agréable et le travail d'équipe est sans doute le meilleur souvenir que je garde de cet emploi.
Dairy Queen was a fun place to work once I got the hang of everything. It was always fast paced but manageable until introducing 2 additional delivery platforms on top of Skip the Dishes. In the summer time this was an unbearable workload and sometimes we would not be able to take our breaks .
Days off whenever requested
Excessive workload, poorly staffed
DQ was a good first job because there wasn’t much help and you had to learn everything yourself. It helped build independence but i feel that there should have been more help from the employees when it came to rush hours.
Short hours and no help
Nothing was ever properly done at DQ Fergus. The management could not care less about their employees and only focused on staying low on costs. Training was minimal and new employees were thrown in with no help. Schedules would change with no notice, managers didn't allow switching or giving away shifts, even if it was their scheduling mistake (Which happened quite often). The owner shows up everyday and does nothing but observe and micromanage the employees working. Management has talked bad about employees to other employees and even asked them to make personal phone calls for them during work hours. There is a 50% discount but not applicable to novelties (cakes, dilly bars, etc.) Would not recommend working here if you can't work with un-mature high school kids. Would not recommend working in a grill location at all as overall food safety could be better, wait times for food items are very long and the kitchen environment is only properly cleaned half the time. Management has massive double standards with their employees and schedules shifts directly according to that. One employee could be working 25 hours a week, while another employee with the same experience and skill level works 3 hours a week. Nothing at DQ is organized or done properly, including the product sent out to customers, the well being of the staff and managing the restaurant in general.
Terrible Management, Poor scheduling, Double Standards
I hated everything and everyone, it sucks mentally. Made my head hurt everyday. Toxic environment, nothing ever changes for the better, just gets worse and worse, you just hate life there and want to quit on it.

I have worked at DQ for more than a few year and I still make minimum wage, although i’m “too valuable at my position” to advance to supervisor or managing. you get 50% off everything but only on your break and in cash. the breaks are too short for the amount you work. the owners are terrible
Pay, Owners, Benefits, Advancing
This is NOT a good place to work!!! The management does not appreciate the work you do and you end up getting yelled at for something that they messed up. This is a good starting job if you want to get turned off of fast food work forever. Don't be surprised if you end up working here for 5 years and still make minimum wage. They mess up the schedule all of the time and this place looks like it's being run by a bunch of 5-year-olds.
low salary, you get treated rudely, and you're not appreciated at all.
The entire vibe at the workplace just makes it an enjoyable place to work. You learn a lot about teamwork since you're always having to communicate with your coworkers. There are quite a bit of things you need to learn in regards to recipes and stuff like that but the person training you (most probably a supervisor) will help you with that for the few weeks, and even after that you can always ask any of your coworkers for help. As time goes on you'll already have most of the recipes memorized but the recipes are usually posted up on the wall so whenever you forget what to put into a blizzard or something like that, you've got somewhere to go back to. Working here is literally the best for a first job as a teenager and hours are really flexible, especially if you go to school, there's an amazing work-life balance.

They had all old equipments and every week there was one or two equipment breaking down. Poor management.. good for first job as team member but too much pressure for the little salary they offer for supervisor and above role.
Not adequately staffed Poor management Too much pressure
I would recommend getting a job at dairy Queen if you want something that's not so fast-paced and not so demanding but yet not too little of demand it's a perfect job for a person who is willing to work part-time or full-time and make a decent wage
Free lunch free ice cream free drinks while you're working
I enjoyed my time there so very much. Provided me with a flexible schedule so it made if possible for me to my adjustments to my work schedule ( within reason). Very welcoming environment with majority young workers. Very fast paced work within the spring and summer seasons, so the ability to learn fast and take initiative is pretty essential. Overall I appreciated my time there.

J’ai beaucoup aimer mon expérience au DQ. Mon boss était flexible et compréhensif, il faisait de l’excellente rétroaction en privé. L’ambiance au travail est agréable, il y a beaucoup d’entraide, les liens se forment rapidement. Le salaire est bas mais c’est selon les attentes pour le poste. Le seul moment stressant c’est quand il y beaucoup de clients mais ca passe vite et tout le monde travaille efficacement. :)
you get to learn a lot in your time. how to problem solve, deal with customers, make cakes, produce accurate desserts. each location is different but overall most aspects are the same.
half off on breaks (can vary by location)
stress when very busy, fast paced
Depends on your manager. If they are good and fair your schedule can be easily 4-6 days a week. But hours can be 3-6 hours a day. Only part I like was decorating cakes and free ice cream.
I worked making ice cream and serving customers. For training, I worked with another staff member for 5 shifts. When we weren't serving customers, we cleaned.
Didn't have a clock-in system so I worked about an extra 15-20 minutes every shift unpaid
