It's a Scottsdale staple. Old fashioned ice cream hot spot Sugar Bowl has been in Old Town for 59 years.
"I'm no nonsense," current owner Carroll Huntress laughed. "I have a light side, but I don't show it in here."
That may be part of the secret to Sugar Bowl's longevity. Huntress expects dedication from his workers no matter the age.
"We do hire a lot of 16,17,19 year-olds looking for a summer job," he said
Huntress is hiring now. Job seekers take note.
WalletHub named Scottsdale the second best city in the country for summer work, it ranked first for highest part-time median income. Orlando took the number one spot.
Ajay Amin owns businesses all over the valley including the local D'lite Healthy on the Go and Genghis Grill locations. He said hiring summer help gives his current college-aged workers a break.
"A lot of the ASU students will go home for the summer or take two to three weeks off to visit family," Amin said.
So what other companies are hiring for the summer? We searched the Valley and found Wet 'n' Wild is looking for temporary help. It needs lifeguards, cashiers and food service workers.
Castles 'N Coasters is hiring ride operators, cashiers and more. The various Valley cities, like Glendale and Mesa have open positions for recreation assistants and general laborers among a number of others.
But both Amin and Huntress says it's hard to beat the perks of working in food service. For one, you get tips. Plus, discounted or free food.
"You can get all the ice cream you can eat for free. After 32 years I don't eat ice cream anymore I've had my fill," Huntress joked.
