Front Cashier, Drive-thru Cashier, Food (Ancien employé) – Calgary, AB – 21 juin 2019
A typical day at work at dairy queen as a cashier is more than the cashier position itself. Other than the fact that I was taking orders and handling money, I was preparing food and serving it to the customers.That is what I was doing most of the time. When I was not doing that I would be doing secondary duties; Helping with cleaning and maintaining orderliness of the restaurant and restocking items if it was needed. Being an employee at dairy queen taught me valuable skills that are important like Time Management,Teamwork and professionalism. Everyone I was working with were very kind and supportive and they were willing to to work with me in improving my skills. Everybody I work with is treated equally like an employee should be treated; like family. The hardest part about my job for me was those times when the place would be packed with customers and It was really high stress but I had to keep going and keep up with service.The most enjoyable part of my job was seeing customer satisfaction with the service that was provided and also being reminded that I was doing a good job.
Inventory Organizer - Contact (Ancien employé) – Sarnia, ON – 17 juin 2019
I empty inventory and put it away from inside the boxes. Then crushed any empty boxes to put into the recycle. On Wednesdays, I mopped the floors and cleaned the tables and counted money for any charity we were doing at the time.

A typical day at work had its highs and lows. We would have rushes of people and, had to pick up the pace. I learned how to approach many different situations with working with a variety of people, and our customers.
Cashier/Customer Service (Ancien employé) – Toronto – 13 juin 2019
Pay sucked, hours sucked, and the place was always dirty. Cockroaches around and also manager was always in the back on the phone not helping except to get mad, Expected a lot when it came to carrying supplies from downstairs.
Cook/Prep (Ancien employé) – Amherst, NS – 12 juin 2019
Liked the people I worked with but management is childish and also shows favortism towards certain people. No chance of advancement and extremely low wage. Hardly any benefits. You will be taking orders from dumb kids, because that is all they hire for supervisors. I would NOT recommend working here.
Cook (Ancien employé) – Victoria, BC – 12 juin 2019
I found working at the hillside Dairy Queen to be quite lacklustre. The cook position has you isolated in the back corner, away from all the other employees. This made the shifts long and uninteresting. It was a good first job to get me adjusted to working though.
Emailed them and it took a phone call and a week for them to reply. They over book you on days you booked off. Overall the management is the biggest downfall. Great people but not responsive management. I got released because of over hiring and it took them 2 months to finally email me.

Fast food is a great place to start your working career and I am glad I was able to start at Dairy Queen! The fast paced environment leads to fast results, you must be quick in order for customer to leave happy and that is very rewarding! The kitchen is were I was stationed and I enjoyed the fast paced work. A lot of the time I would work the night shift and was along making the orders but that was a great challenge because you have to prioritize different orders based on specifications and figuring which was the best decision was a job within it self but again very rewarding!
