Management cannot communicate in an effective way if english is your language. Mix fast pace, with an inefficient management structure, confusion, lazy workers, scapegoats, unclean warehouse, improperly trained machine operators, machines without proper preventative maintenance, and you have a day at work
A working day at Mrs.Fields was mostly pleasant. I worked alone but hardly felt stressed out or the need to have another employee with me. It was nice to create conversations with customers and brighten their day with a warm back of delicious cookies.
While the hours could be more per week, the franchise owner is a nice lady, who is flexible, and helps me the best that she can. As an artist, this job also gives me ways to express it on cookies, with different varieties of seasonal decorations, as well as decorating customized cookie cakes as well.
Daily tasks included making sure each location had the appropriate amount of yogurt pulled and toppings prepped for the day. Also had to ensure that all yogurt was prepared for the school pick ups, if it was the applicable day for pick ups.
On truck order days, had to make sure to set aside time to order and receive in trucks.
Coworkers were great, the owner had no clue how to run the business and often would suggest ideas that cost more money than it made.
Coming in to work every day smiling. Your always happy with your co-workers happy everyday. When you work hard to achieve a goal you always celebrate your accomplishments in a different way than others.
Was my first job, was a fun experience too. It was a very fast paced job that required the employees to run the shop alone during shifts. Grateful to be thrown into such a stressful environment without experience for such demanding situations because I was forced to learn how to maintain control and provide friendly productive service for customers. Also, free yogurt, so...... there are worse jobs. ;)
I did several fundraisers in high school, most of which were under Famous Brands. the brands included are: Great American, Mrs. Fields, and Jelly Bellies. I was also apart of yearbook so had to work with the yearbook brand as well.
I got prizes
was short on the time frame for selling, sometimes took forever for orders to come in.
Typical day at work depends on weather, it can be super busy or super slow. Management is decent, but good overall. I've learned a lot from when I started with treating customers right and being there with an answer even if it takes me a while to find it.
a typical work pace for morning and night shifts tends to be slow but relaxing, giving you time to get all of your tasks done. Normally mid/afternoon shifts are focused on cashier work. Management is very good with positive conversations and helpful supervision, making you feel more comfortable compared to some other jobs. The hardest part of the job would be the cleaning but that is all food places, so really its easy. i enjoyed this job due to the relaxed environment.
A typical day at TCBY included cleaning, serving customers, and leading the staff through shifts. I learned to manage shifts throughout the night as well as enhance my customer service skills. The workplace was easy and the members got along well. This was an easy job and overall benefited my work ethic.
