Hard sometimes, every now and again ice cream men argue over who works in what area, one even got his hand cut off. It's not like that a lot though but when it's cold you are not going to sell much ice cream. Years ago there was an ice cream van that was a mobile shop as well, he sold pet food, cigarettes, sweets, crisps, etc. Maybe go like that because you can't really just do ice cream all the time. Have your phone number on it somewhere too so that people can hire you for events.

Good because all the kids can come up and the experience is amazing even though I have never been one.

Probably the best job in the world.

Constantly on a time clock having to rush and lift heavy boxes. It's work and ice cream does not make it any easier. Not sure if you are talking about an CDL ice cream truck driver or residential ice cream truck driver. I am referring to CDL driver.

You listen to the same annoying music all day and don't make much money.

My son started working a real job at 15, as I did. I also ran my own "business" by cleaning houses, babysitting and washing windows. Made damn good money too. I started that at 12, and did it till I got a real job at 15.
