As an employee of Dairy Queen for almost 2 years (sadly), I’ve witnessed a great many sights that will ensure I never spend money at this certain Dairy Queen ever again (and possibly every other DQ will be boycotted). within a few months of starting, I was told that I needed to supply my own vinyl gloves in the kitchen, at a cost of roughly $16 a week. over the course of one calander year, I spent over $850 on gloves. So I try to get a form signed so I can get reimbursed with my Taxes (as a work expense), and the owners claim they won’t sign it because they are afraid of an audit. just a bit shady? I’ve also been denied pay raises because the store doesn’t make enough money to properly pay its hard-working employees, just enough to send the owner’s on several world vacations every year (I’ve seen what we make in sales on a daily basis, it’s not chump change). We are forced to work with utensils and containers that are broken, and stained with foodstuff. The owners treat the food stock in the store as their own personal fridge, allowing not just the owners, but the owner’s family members to walk into the back, and handle food without washing their hands. the manager, and the bosses will stand in plain sight of customers -and- employees, chatting and playing with their phones, then going straight to food prep or serving. There’s an infestation of mice underneath our outside freezer and cooler, and the traps they have, have been sitting in the same place since before I started 2 years ago. we constantly deal with leaky faucets, leaky pipes, leaky dishwashers, leaky deep fryers, and leaky ice cream machines. Our weekday morning kitchen person refuses to do even basic cleaning while she works (preparing cheeseburgers on bacon grease, and not caring if shredded cheese gets on a burger that was specifically NO CHEESE, are just two examples). I have also been told to use less and less when it comes to all the fixings on burgers. the latest one, was when the district representative was in the store, I was told that our grilled cheese sandwich usually has 3 slices of cheese on it (what I was taught) and that when the district rep is there, do that, but when he’s not there, only use two pieces of cheese. first of all, saving 15 fucking cents?! secondly, that not how Dairy Queen wants it. I was trained to make burgers and chicken to a certain level of quality (the district rep even said I make picturesque burgers, worthy of commercials), and I take pride in what I do. I don’t take pride in over-charging the customer, and skimping out on their meal. we also have a manager that seems to think he’s god’s gift to women, and has had several sexual harassment complaints from the girls that we work with. However, there hasn’t been any repercussions for his disgusting acts.This is just a short list. if you’d like to hear more, I’d be more than happy to go on and on and on about all the crap this certain location puts not only it’s staff, but it’s customers through.
