  2.  

    This is the worst franchise (not applicable to all Pinkberry locations as each is independently owned and operated) I have ever worked for!

    Pros

    The pros to this job is that you get free yogurt when you work and the staff is awesome and the customers are great.

    Cons

    The are many cons to this location. First of the owner is super hard to understand because she speaks poor English, on top of that she clearly doesn't know nor does she care what the law says about break periods and she will cut your hours at the drop off a hat for no reason.

    Pros

    the only pro are the people, they are really genuine people no politics here & honestly that is it

    Cons

    disorganized, they seem to always change direction and have no clear vision of what Pinkberry wants to be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    disorganized, dysfunctional, no clear communication, management has no clue about the customer anymore and our frozen yogurt has lost its quality

    I have been working at Pinkberry full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easier to move up in company
    Occasionally they will let you have more than a small
    Gay friendly atmosphere
    They really are an awful company to work for

    Cons

    They don't care about their workers
    They are greedy,lazy
    They will pretty much give anyone a job
    Because of this they don't care if they have to fire 10 people in a week. I've been told I had to go into work while very sick.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    At this point just shut down this company it's truly awful.

    Free yogurt-if you like it.
    Santana Row location allows for lots of tips.

    Caters too hard to the customer
    Expensive product

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try actually caring for your current employees and then you won't have so much turn over.

    I have been working at Pinkberry full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The product is unparrallel, the best frozen yogurt undisputed. Great flavor profiles...they appreciate all customer feedback. Service model believes in customers first connection.

    Cons

    Was forced to do catering using my own car! I still have dents and scratches from the cam chillers. Poor leadership from senior leadership. They seemed to display an us verse them mentality, they were condescending. Lacked critictal leadership to carry out the vision of the company. There was no structure when it came to day to day operations. Had archaic resources to get managerial things done. The company seemed to have a revolving door when it came to the longetivity of its employees. I am actually shocked that there are law suits pending for meal break violations and working off the clock and safety and security for being alone in the store at any given time. There is no work life balance, you are practically an on call doctor minus the pay for being disturb when not working.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company should do hire all new senior managment and support staff or else the company will continue to spiral. People on the inside know that this is true.
