    Former Employee - Shift Supervisor in Vancouver, BC

    I worked at Dairy Queen part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I learned a lot and it helped that I had a great boss. Sure, he was a little harsh or rude sometimes, but it's not a lavish job and it taught me how to have a sense of urgency and become the leader I am today. Plus, the perk of making your own food and dessert creations was pretty fun (I miss my mushroom swiss and chilli poutines).

    Cons

    I always went home smelling like grease, but I mean, it was expected.
