    I worked at TCBY part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good work environment with average pay. I worked heard while on the clock but the shifts went by swiftly and that always good

    Cons

    Management wouldn't allow our store to do very many things to obtain more customers. Also, in the winter time business would drop and employee's hours would be cut.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow more freedom for each store to market for more customers.

    Pros

    Plenty of shifts and hours, you can leave messes everywhere and anywhere and not worry about cleaning it up.

    Cons

    Working long 10 hour shifts ALONE. Only 4 employees. Cleaning up after unprofessional employees. Arrogant manager who buys ice cream from Cash and Carry because they are to cheap to pay for ACTUAL froyo. Drive through doesn't work so you'll begin to develop neck problems from constantly turning your head back and forth since your the only worker.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think your doing to great job if you want to go out of business.

    Pros

    Free small cup of yogurt.

    Cons

    Management was horrible. I worked at a TCBY in a mall food court but I was only there for a couple weeks. I only worked two days a week and was paid BELOW minimum wage. I left as soon as I could.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being so stingy and pay attention to your employees. Happy employees means happy customers.

    I worked at TCBY

    Pros

    The hours I had were very accommodating to my life. And I liked that I got paid weekly. A very fun place work !

    Cons

    I can't think of any, except sometimes we would run out of popular topping on a busy weekend... And there were quite a few young employees who would want schedule changes on the weekend, which would put a burden on the other employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay firm with scheduling..... That's about all

    Nice customers, nice leadership, allowed time off whenever requested, pay begins as minimum wage then increases year after year, great first job

    not much opportunity for growth, you have to work pretty long hours into the night for it just being a yogurt shop, the machines are a pain to clean

    Pros

    Free ice cream while you work, great coworkers, easy job.

    Cons

    TERRIBLE MANAGEMENT. I've never been more unsatisfied by an employer. When I quit, I was insulted over the phone, even though I was professional about it. My final check was shorted. I was scheduled for a total of 12 hours over the course of 3 weeks. The pay is terrible. I started at 7.25 an hour and was told pay would increase as I took on more responsibility, but I found out that the employee who has been working there the longest, (2 years) and is a college student, is only being paid 7.50 an hour and she runs the store by herself the majority of the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lighten up a little.

    I worked at TCBY full-time

    Pros

    Not very stressful or demanding work. However, the owner and corporation make this job difficult because they are so out of touch with the customer and the workers and managers. Also, because the profit margins are so small with frozen yogurt, they literally will try to save a penny at any cost to the employee or the customer, which also means old toppings and dirty tricks to save product.

    Cons

    Low pay, no respect, no perks. Run!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to workers because they have first-hand knowledge of what the customer wants and what is difficult about the job.
