I applied through other source and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Pinkberry in October 2013.
Interview Details – Its an audition that involves three stages. The first stage you have to meet another person who is auditioning and get as many details about him/her as you can in a span of a few minutes and introduce him in a few minutes to a group of managers from different stores. Then, you have to make a commercial or poem or something along those lines and present it as well. Then you get in a team of 3 people and attempt to pitch one of their take home cups for sale. High energy was definitely a focus and genuine character as well. If you wow them in these stages, you get called back for a basic interview where they ask you a few questions.
Interview Question – Why Pinkberry? View Answer
Very Easy Interview
I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Pinkberry in October 2013.
Interview Details – Very unprofessional. General manager interviewed me when he should have had his 'head manager' do it. It was a quick and easy process though which was quite nice. Was working within a few days. Meeting the co workers was the best part.... very friendly and welcoming. Im sure that if i applied to another store it would have been alot better.

Interview Details –
Sit down with the general manager. Name a time when you felt frustrated what did you do to over come this frustration? If you saw someone stealing at the store what would you do?
If you are closing and you saw one of your co-workers taking drugs to stay awake what would you do? They basically present scenarios and they want to see what your reaction would be?

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Pinkberry in August 2013.
Interview Details – I basically knew someone that had been working in the company. After that I filed for the application and gave in my resume. The manager immediately called me in and said I got the job, but I would have to go to another interview to Shawona. She's one of the main people in Pinkberry and I needed her approval. After that I needed to attend an Orientation on a certain day, and straight after I attended Orientation I started to work.
Interview Question – There wasn't much of a difficult question, it was more of your standard questions such as "Why do you want to work for us?" or "What would you do in this situation" Answer Question
I applied in-person and interviewed at Pinkberry.
Interview Details – Interview was very interesting and different. It was a group interview, maybe around 10 people. For the first part of the interview, the employers split people into pairs. You have to introduce yourself to your partner for 10 minutes, and then you introduce your partner to the employer and say what you've learned about them. The next part of the interview was to make a commercial of some sort to advertise pinkberry. You could make a song, rap, or poem. You get like 20 minutes to brainstorm. At the end, the employer calls peoples names to stay and they are hired. If you're shy or quiet, they will probably not hire you, so speak up and show your outgoing personality.

Interview Question – New marketing strategy for a cup Answer Question
I applied in-person and interviewed at Pinkberry.
Interview Details – This was a pretty interesting "interview" to say the least. It was a group interview and all except for one task was with a partner. The thing about this interview that was a little upsetting was that they didn't really ask much about you, it was more so little silly activities. There were three activities: 1) You and your partner had to learn things about each other then introduce each other to the interviewers and the rest of the group 2) You had to make a mini commercial for Pinkberry (solo performance) They literally give you about 3 minutes, if even that much to come up with something, then you have to perform it to the rest of the group 3) You have to sell them a cup (with a group). My advice to you is to turn yourself into Billy Mays upon entering the store because in reference to my interview that's who they want. I didn't think it took that much to see yogurt but apparently there is. The reasons i hated this interview was that we had to get there at 7:45 in the morning then waited for at least 2 hours until the interview actually started. In this time less than half of the people there had seats, so you are standing the whole time. There were so many people there that they split the large group into interview sessions. Thank God i was in the first wave of people to be interviewed by the next session wasn't until an hour later. All in all i hope the next time i walk into a Pinkberry i am sung to because according to the interview that's what they claim the customer should get.
