Our objective here at The Cone is to serve each customer as quickly and efficiently
as possible while creating the best experience for them!
Be prepared to have fun and work hard to serve our community as a Cone Employee!
Cone Employees are like a large extended family!
Our staff includes adults, college students, and high school students.
Our employees are the cream of the crop and come back year after year!
As well as being a family owned and operated business, sometimes more
than half our staff has or has had a sibling work for The Cone!
This year The Cone will employ about 75 students and 30 adults.
The Cone includes a stand alone store and 4 traveling concession units.
The Wren Family owns and operates all of these and
you may need to occasionally work in a concession unit.
We use Online Scheduling so that you can
find your schedule easily, mark/change your availability, and trade shifts with coworkers!

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).
Hair style and color should also project a professional image.
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 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.
You need to have reliable transportation to work.
We expect our employees to be clocked in 5 minutes before the beginning of a shift
so that their co-workers can finish their tasks, split tips,
and have a seamless transition with serving customers.
