After that, we have interview days, New Employee Meetings, and New Employee Workshops which you don't want to miss!
Even if you are not yet 16 and won't be starting until later in the Season, the Meetings and Workshops will be beneficial to you!*

***High School Employees:
You must be able to work the entire Season (Mid March-Mid October). If you have a time consuming activity (sports, a play, etc.) in the Spring or Fall, and cannot work 3-4 shifts a week, this may not be the right job for you!
During school, you must be available at least 10 hours per week (Mon-Thur) and 12 hours on the weekend (Friday night through Sunday night). You will not necessarily be scheduled all of those times but you need to be available. During the summer, you must be available at least 5 shifts a week (Mon-Thurs) and 3 shifts on the weekend (Friday-Sunday).
Vacations are permitted in moderation.
You must be available for either July 7th OR Labor Day weekends as they are our busiest weekends of the season.
You must be available for a day or night shift on Mother's Day (May 12th) and National Ice Cream Day (July 21st).
You must be able to work at least one shift on Closing Day (September 29th, 2019)
We do NOT generally work around second jobs as it is unfair to our scheduler and other employees.
Exception: Some Adults with a main job who would like to work a semi-set schedule.
Have Initiative, Work Ethic, a Smile, and a great attitude toward co-workers and management.
Sunday is our busiest day of the week. We do ask that you try to be available for at least one shift on Sundays. If possible, we ask that you try to attend an earlier church service occasionally, as we do, since we are so short staffed when we open on Sundays (11:45am). It has become increasingly unfair to the select few employees who make themselves available Sunday mornings to have to work that shift week after week.
Managers must be able to contact you personally about shifts, scheduling, and meetings.
Please be able to provide us with your personal cell phone number.
You must be able to cooperate with and follow the direction of management and to treat other employees with respect and kindness.
Ability to willingly and accurately work off of a list and complete the list within a given amount of time.
You must be able to (or learn to) work while talking with co-workers.
Good personal hygiene is required of all employees when they report for work. All employees are expected to be clean shaven, bathed (same day as shift and after physical activity), and have appropriate application of body deodorant. These are not only rules we implement here at The Cone, but also required rules as directed by the Health Department.
We, at The Cone, strive to project a professional and family-friendly image.
Therefore, since accessories and jewelry such as nose rings and other objects pierced on various body parts are offensive to many customers, wearing those rings and other jewelry which is pierced on the body (other than earrings) is prohibited, as is wearing of any jewelry which may be considered offensive (skulls, etc.).
Tattoos must be covered by clothing (no band-aids).
We absolutely do not allow gossip regarding other employees or management at The Cone. We also do not allow any form of drama. These are both grounds for immediate termination.
You must be able to speak without using unacceptable language or swear words.
You need to be able to work a 5 hour shift without checking, texting, or using social media on your phone.
You need to be able to access our online scheduling system regularly and put mark off requests in on time.
New employees are filtered in to the schedule between April and May.
Start Date will depend on age, availability, and when application was submitted.
We will send out a list of the order in which trainees will be starting.
