Good highschool part-time job
Shift Leader (Current Employee) – Chetek, WI – January 4, 2017
Currently, I still work at the Dairy Queen as a Shift Leader. I am still making $9 an hour when it should be more. Coworkers told me I should give management an ultimatum of not taking the shifts unless I get paid more, but I no longer will be working here anyways. Surveillance is a big thing, management is constantly watching your every move on the cameras so you have to be careful and tedious on doing what you should be doing. Also, everyone is replaceable, it doesn't matter how long you have been employed there. Keep in mind, you work for customers' satisfaction, and winning that can be harder than you think. I have been cussed at and screamed at through the drive-thru window while taking an order, it can get stressful. Another thing to keep in mind is that the employees that work in the front area of the store will take all complaints and concerns, which ranges from the cook's flaws, cake-decorater's mistakes, management, or even the prices for product. It's a good highschool part-time job, for a while, at least.
50% off products, excluding cakes. 15-minute break each shift. Friendly workers and environment.
No benefits, compensation, or incentives, feeling of being watched constantly is creepy, wasn't getting paid as a shift-leader, raises are limited and take a while
