I made the mistake of taking this job as my first job, that's for sure. I was only there for a few weeks but it was getting nowhere and I felt like it was impossible to advance as my 'training' consisted of a couple 5 min walkthroughs of the store with the manager who did go into detail, but not enough to remember permanently since it was only for five minutes lol. A week later they booked me again and I clearly couldn't remember everything since I'd only worked once before, so I tried to do what I could. However, they expected me to find work they had only mentioned once before and in the correct order and made me take orders they have never taught me to do before. I once had over 5 blizzards to do after having worked there maybe twice before and was expected to do it on my own. They only helped me when I was really struggling and they felt like it. I made lots of mistakes and I'm aware of that, especially since my memory is already bad, but I was genuinely trying to recall a bunch information I'd been given in five minutes a week before for orders that had to be done correctly and quickly and on my own after a couple days of shadowing the manager. There was also so many snide comments/ raising voices at me by the manager and especially the owner when I couldn't remember things or if I didn't do it the way they liked/ fast enough, lots to my face but also a few behind my back, (things like use your brain, I can't babysit you, think for once) but I guess I was considered an inefficient outsider. if you have bad anxiety like me or have not worked in fast food before, not theplus... best place to work as there is no time for them to train you or for you to ask questions. As far as having anxiety, this is definitely not the location, as the management is only close/ friendly towards those who have been there for like decades, and will constantly make comments about you, which was actually the worst part for me as every movement I made I was afraid I'd be yelled at or just get in trouble if everything want correct so yeah pretty anxiety inducing for me, which makes people perform worse obviously. I'd often go home crying from fear of the owner lol.moins

It really fun to work at dairy queen. The food and ice cream is really easy to make it and even the work environment is really nice. The interaction with customers and colleagues will help you to learn alot about hospitality industry.

i don’t have much else to say but don’t apply here. i’ve hated it ever since i set foot in the place and the continuing downgrades in management and actually mature and good working people is incredulously stressful, and they are also very unforgiving to those with extra curricular activities or those with multiple jobs.
Loved my job but wasn’t comfortable in the long run

Dairy Queen is a fantastic place to work for your first job perhaps it isn’t for everyone. I personally didn’t feel like I belong there anymore. After a while I wasn’t comfortable in my work environment

The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to make frozen treats for the customers such as Dilly Bars, Waffle cones, and Buster Bars. The hardest part of the job was keeping up with the cleaning in the front dining room.

I really amazing team and owners. Everyone is there to have a great time as well as get the job done. They do charge $100 off your first paycheck toward your uniform but other than that, it is an amazing and easy job to have.
