Cashier/Stock Person (Current Employee), Waterbury, VTApril 8, 2014
Most enjoyable part of the job: Meeting new people (coworkers, customers, etc), working the tie dye tent, and trying new flavors.
Hardest part of the job: in the summer it is very busy and can be hard to keep up with restocking inventory.

Cashier (Former Employee), Glenview, ILJuly 15, 2013
Pros: great people, ice cream tastings, fun environment
Cons: no advancement
I loved working here. The people and management where just wonderful! It was great to be able to sneak a spoon of ice cream here and there to try the new flavors! But honestly, its just a job for the kids in high school or college to get some money, but I absolutely loved it!

Fast moving environment with great tips
Shift Leader (Former Employee), Oxon Hill, MDJuly 7, 2013
Pros: great tips
Cons: employees had to pay for everything
It was a fast moving environment that taught me how to work toward goals. Management was great and my co-workers were nice people to work with for the most part. The hardest part of the job was making sure that all employers were on task and doing their job. The most enjoyable part of the job was taking home tips at the end of the day.

Very busy and fun place of business
Cashier (Former Employee), Detroit, MISeptember 17, 2012
Pros: discounted ice cream and a new learning experience for me
Cons: no lunch break, pay was not good
Doing my job, interacting with my co-workers and customers, and offering outstnading customer service was a typical day at work for me. I learned how to use different machines needed to make all of our prducts properly. I also learned how to control my attitude and not let everything get to me. Management was great! There were no hard parts of my job – more... everything came easy to me and if it didn't I kept pushing until it did. What i enjoyed most about this job was satisfying my customers and interacting with my co-workers when the time was right. – less
