Ice Cream Maker

August 2018 • Pittsfield, MA

What I liked

Enjoyed working with some people and getting the job done

What I wish was different

An increase in pay would have been great, many other employees weren't putting in as much work, so if everyone was working together equally that would make the job much better.

Advice

If other workers aren't fairly contributing, don't be afraid to speak to a manager about it or even talk to them about it yourself.

Advice

Customer Service is difficult to work in but my advice is to do your job the best you can and be kind. That is how you will receive the best experience.

Waitress

June 2016 • Mystic, CT

What I liked

The staff is very friendly, and most managers do their best to help and make things run smoothly. The customer base is also friendly, and you can make good money (main demographic is families with kids and older people).

What I wish was different

I wish there was more staff on each shift so things could not get so hectic; sometimes under staffing causes staff and customers to get upset.

Advice

Friendly's is a good place to work in general, but you have to be ready to handle high-demand and stressful situations if you'd like to succeed.

Server

June - August 2018 • Hanover, MA

What I liked

I worked with a lot of people the same age as me and we all became friends. They also provided a lot of hours.

What I wish was different

I wish the management had been more responsible with stocking merchandise and making schedules according to people's availability.

Advice

I've been in food service for over three years and waitressing has taught me a lot about organization, prioritizing, and patience. Not the best job for those who get stressed easily but you can make some good money and you will learn a lot about yourself and how people treat waitstaff.

What I liked

What I wish was different

If my gas was paid for that would have been great. Massachusetts state laws indicate they are required to, but I guess the company hasn’t gotten there yet
