    Pros

    Awesome work atmosphere. Getting to know the merchandise is easy and it makes you confident with how you sell it. Overall a fun job!

    Cons

    If situated at a busy location, lots of people can come into the store all at once. Since there usually isn't a lot of people staffed, you have to have to be calm to get through orders and questions.

  2. Good

    Pros

    It was fun! People are happy when you sell them chocolate, and are generally very interested, and not very cranky. And when they are, it's ridiculous so you don't care, really.

    Cons

    The managers and owners didn't actually know anything about the business. The night supervisor and myself and the girls, seemed to be the only ones who knew what was up.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating the franchises like crap.

    Pros

    Fast pace work environment, working with chocolate, flexible schedule. The company itself is comprised of genuine and friendly people.

    Cons

    Low wages, high work demands, no real opportunity for career growth, lack of timely support from corporate.

    Advice to Management

    The left hand doesn't always know what the right hand is doing.
    Need more brand exposure and don't rely so much on franchisees to do that work for them.
    Don't be so reluctant to change, Innovate for goodness sake.
