Crew Member (Former Employee) – Murrysville, PA – October 15, 2018
One of my favorite jobs I have ever held. I was a key holder, meaning I was trained to open and set up the store for the day 4 times a week in the morning. Running the daylight shift alongside a manager, I learned a lot of useful customer service skills, and was cross trained around the store. This is where I learned most of my experience and stayed the longest considering my pay and commute wasn't what I wanted.
free ice cream / meals, great hours, great management / training, good location
Never received a raise after a year as promised, wasn't being taken serious for management opportunities
I really miss my job there but do y To unfortunant things that happen i had to leave....this is a great place to work and have fun doing it... They give the employee a chance to grow and become what they have worked for in the company...

A typical work day at the Dairy Queen I worked at was a lot of moving around. Not a lot of fast food places manage like DQ, I did not mind it at all though. I like how fast my day went, and I liked the crew I worked with.
Co Manager (Former Employee) – Abilene, TX – October 14, 2018
Dairy Queen is a good place to work, they can be flexible with the schedule, and can do their best to give you the shifts you want, the pay is good as well, they start you out based on how much experience you have within the industry.
It was a fast-pasted, fun,and enjoyable work place.
Crew Member (Former Employee) – Buffalo, NY – October 13, 2018
Working at Dairy Queen there probably was not a slow day out of the week and even then it was sorta busy, so i was always on my feet constantly moving around. I learned great customer service working here from management and it was an enjoyable experience.
I did not enjoy working here but it was what I needed and kept me afloat.
Dairy Queen (Former Employee) – Northern Cambria, PA – October 13, 2018
A typical day at work at my location was very draining. I learned how to deal with difficult people. Management was poor. Working environment was either very fun or very hostile, there was no in between. However making ice cream and making customers happy was fulfilling.

Working at DQ is a great job experience. It teaches you how to manage time and how to give the best quality out the window to the customers. Also, it gives teenagers the experience to serve different types of people.
Dairy Queen Crew Member (Former Employee) – Roanoke, TX – October 13, 2018
To me, Dairy Queen is where I made a lot of friends. The people were amazing and I learned how to be more mature and work as a team. I would recommend Dairy Queen to everyone who is young and is looking for their first job.
50% off food 30 mins before and after work and on breaks.
Crew Member (Former Employee) – San Angelo, TX – October 12, 2018
It was ok working there but there was a lot of kids who played around often and management did nothing about it, which made it kind of difficult to work. For high school kids perfect job but anyone in there mid twenties and up I wouldn’t recommend
Dairy Queen Crew Member (Current Employee) – Ashland, KY – October 12, 2018
It had its ups and downs but the General manager at the time really isn't the best general manager hes kinda lazy and its so hard to get full time I had it but something happened with me trying to get another job and they cut my hours and gave my fulltime away which I was intending to leave so I understand but I ended up having to stay and I lost all my hours which really hurt my pay check by A LOT but its relaxed for the most part every other manager besides the Gm was aweomse the people I worked with ill remember and be friends with for a long time a lot of great memoires from here!
Cashier (Former Employee) – Collinsville, IL – October 12, 2018
Although my ratings say otherwise, I felt DQ was a good job for me to begin my work career because of the high pressures of the job. It made me learn fast and I took things I learned into every other job since.
Dairy Queen has fast hours and slow hours. The management was helpful.
Crew Member/Cashier (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – October 12, 2018
At Dairy Wueen the pace went from fast to slow back fast. it all depended on the hours of the day. Working schedules were made and typically you could try and get it around your schedule, that's because they had the workers to work around your schedule. While workig there i got less hours, this wasnt okay because i couldn't live off the amount that i was making for the few hours a week they had me working.
Manager (Former Employee) – Celina, TN – October 12, 2018
A typical day at work included working with fellow employees, maintaining a safe and clean environment, handling customer complaints, counting drawers, working drive thru, reporting any problems to GM, and closing store. The hardest part of the job was truck day and maintaining a clean store (back and lobby).
SHIFT LEAD SUPERVISOR (Current Employee) – Minnesota – October 12, 2018
This was my first job and I have yet to leave. I have been there for ten years and have worked my way up to Assistant Manager in those ten years. It is a really fun job, although with the changing in the way high schoolers work today compared to ten years ago, it is much different and more challenging. Today's high schoolers want to do the minimum work and do not want to work often.
