Jon’s supervisor, Toni, is grateful to have Jon as an employee. She described Jon in one word, “gracious”. Jon is not one to highlight his successes, but for his supervisor, praise comes easily. Toni shared, “When Jon asks, ‘How can I help you?’ he really means what he says. Jon's careful attention to customers' needs have made him a familiar and trusted face at Dairy Queen.”
Jon’s Job Developer, Jeff, has experienced more than one customer sharing their gratitude for Jon's stellar customer service in his four-year stint there, including the Dairy Queen’s CEO!
Over the past year, Jon has had to adjust to less customer contact than he'd like, but this has given Jon the opportunity to learn "back of the house" skills such as food preparation and cooking. Jon is on the path to a promotion as “Fan Captain,” a Dairy Queen ambassador role.
Jon shared the customers and his coworkers' support are the main reasons that keep him coming back. Jon also made it clear he is very thankful to Toni for giving him his first job and he is excited to learn about both the "grill" and "chill" tasks.
Since the Spring of 2017, Dairy Queen has hired four MICC participants and has been a model employer for the Careers Program.
