    For my part-time job that supplies my technological gasms like my Computer, my XBAWKS 360, my DS Lite and all the little knicknacks for it, my TV, my Technical Drawing Supplies (Wacom.) and to the things that fuel my everyday life, my rent, my heat during the winter, my car, my gas, and my .36 cent Ramen and off brand soda and my college, I work at Dairy Queen. A fine establishment, as you may know, that sells delightful dairy based treats. And especially at the Dairy Queen I work at, we sell our COPYRIGHTED food.

    SOOOOOOO because of my meager/shitty $8 an hour job, ASK ME ANYTHING. And I shall deliver to the best of my knowlege.

    I will answer all questions according to order, and I will try not to miss anyone. If this does become popular I'll catalog all the questions.


    So let's begin!

    Oh man. Dairy Queen. I worked there for 2 days before I quit. Worst fucking job I have ever had in my life. I hated it from the first second, and I would never ever ever work there again. How do you feel about it?

    Well, This is how I feel about my job:

    Seeing all the people come in and eat the food you give them becomes horrifying to watch. As I wait for food to come up to give it to them, it becomes disgusting to watch them chow down their blizzards. I just can't help but feel I'm helping with the effort of society's downfall. Feeding people thousands of calories per meal. I just want to vomit right there. Yes, as an employee I like to include some tasty treats to myself everyonce in awhile. A blizzard here in there. But the same people come in everyday and you can't help but feel bad for serving them.

    Sometimes watching the kids kick and scream because they want ice cream and the parents say no stetilizes you a little...

    I'm sad now ;_;

    Actually, that reminds me. Today I dropped my friend off at Dairy Queen (he works there), and there was a fat guy outside playing with Devil Sticks, so I asked my friend what was up with this guy. He told me that he comes every day to get an Oreo blizzard, which I, for some reason, found really funny. Just this fat guy by himself out back by them dumpster playing with Devil Sticks, and coming in for a break to get his blizzard. Funny, but also sad

    Nope. Our Dairy Queen is constantly losing money somehow so the only benefits are free beverages while on shift, and half-off food on break time only. You only get a break if you work 4 or more hours. When I first started, I got a lot of 3 1/2 hour shifts. Pissed off beyond pissiness itself.

    Plus 15-minutes does not give you time to enjoy a blizzard you just made.

    Hypothetically, I do. Our Salads still have a shit-load of calories in them.

    Plus I know the come-back, "Why don't you bring your own food..."

    ;_; I can barely afford Cheap packs of Ramen and Gallons of Milk....

    What kind of psycho parent brings their kid to DQ and denies them ice cream treats ?

    Why do they advertise DQ burgers on tv all the time but at least in Colorado hardly any actually serve grill items ?

    If a customer murders an incompetent employee do they get a discount and/or punch card ?

    Why the fuck are blizzards so expensive ?

    Why does DQ sometimes use salted peanuts? That totally ruins a Peanut Buster Parfait. Salt + chocolate = gross [​IMG]

    Bastard, cruel and unusual parents. That's who.

    Certain DQ's will only sell what's available to them or what they can and can't afford. Also its based on what will sell.

    No, but a free corpse of an incompetent employee is available.

    Prices are going up. DQ is changing into the DQ Grill & Chill by 2011. Big changes to the outer and inner looks of DQ. Alot of money being spent. Prices must raise. Like I said before, my DQ raises it's prices practically every 5 days, thus Large Blizzards are $4.79.... $5 for a large blizzard.... ;_;

    Agreeable to the Chocolate Pretzel Comment.

    BUT! To answer your question. They're cheaper that way.

    I'm not a fan of mixing salt and sweets.

    Regardless, it's not the proper way to make treats like the Peanut Buster Parfait. They don't always use salted peanuts, but the odd time they do, and the worst is when you get a scoop of peanuts from the bottom of the container -- you get like a teaspoon of salt in there. [​IMG] It's completely inedible at that point.

    Does your Dairy Queen still hold the Blizzard upside-down before giving it to the customer?

    We only have a couple of DQ's around here and I haven't been to one in a long time, but it seems like they stopped holding them upside-down a while ago.

    Nope. Apparently we stopped before I came to work. Some of our blizzards suck tremendously. They're all really leaky. We turn them upside down, they come falling out.

    Well I'll give you the low down on this then. Dairy Queen really prides itself with it's thick Ice Cream. When just right, the ice cream can hold the viscosity very well and now tip out of upside down cups, therefore, a blizzard of perfect porportions should technically be able to hold it's shape and stay in the cup.

    As time goes on, many DQ's stop doing this do to complaining customers, such as the, "OMG, IT JUST FELL OUT." Also, our blizzards are starting to range from the quick and easy, to the incredibly messy and gooey. A Banana Split Blizzard, Has the Soft Serve, Banana, Strawberry + Sauce, Pineapple + sauce, and Chocolate Sauce. Horrible sticky and gooey concoction. IMO, worst blizzard you could hold upside down...

    Also more DQ's away from Midstream areas, more southern or more states by the coast tend to stay classic, these guys may still have the old fashion shit, but none of the new stuff.

    A long time ago, my family used to take yearly trips to Sanibel Island Florida and it was a tradition to go to dairy Queen after a day at the beach (at night). I don't even know why. Dairy Queens used to be VERY scarce where I live (Nashville Tennessee) and we only ever went to one in Florida. Now they're everywhere and seem to have gone WAY downhill from what I've heard.

    I used to get a coke float (coke and vanilla ice cream). DQ had the best. Do they still serve these and are they still any good?

    I now get the Rice Dream non-dairy vanilla ice cream (or whatever brand is available) and make my own coke-floats (I'm a vegan).
