    Many golden spoons are closing because most people prefer self serve frozen yogurt places

    Pros

    Good first job. Great for when you are in high school and never felt like it put down my school work. Free yogurt on break!

    Cons

    Need to make sure you are always doing the work for your shift or it can affect the next shift.

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers, free yogurt, good tips. Made many connections interacting with customers.

    Cons

    Lack of communication between management and franchise owner. Lack of trust from management with employees. Great product, but not keeping staying competitive in meeting customer desires. Concerned about the future outlook of this company.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on promoting a work atmosphere that encourages communication. Focus on how changes in the industry and competition are changing consumer demands.

    Pros

    Free yogurt and tips! Most of the people are nice to work with and the shifts are short usually.

    Cons

    Management takes it a little too seriously for just a part time job. Employees are graded harshly on their work every morning, from how well the floors are cleaned to how high or low the toppings are re filled... Also they don't pay very well, almost everyone makes minimum although they are doing a lot of work. It was high stress with a lot of punishment and very little reward.

    Advice to Management

    Lighten up or pay them more!

    I worked at golden spoon

    Pros

    Golden Spoon is a good first job for high school kids. Shifts are short and relatively easy to get covered.

    Cons

    Minimum wage job that is beyond boring, but hey! It's food service. Quality of job depends on owner of branch.

    Advice to Management

    Get involved.


  11. If it wasn't for the customers... this would be an amazing job. With them it is still pretty cool.

    Pros

    Free Yogurt!!!
    Tips
    It is a pretty good place to work depending on the owner and the manager. I had a pretty good experience.

    Cons

    Customers who feel that they are entitled to everything.

    Advice to Management

    I worked there before all of the changes that came in 2012, so I am not sure if things have changed but I think they should listen to their customers. Also, they could use some classes on running a social media for a corporation.
