    I worked at Pinkberry part-time

    Pros

    The co-workers were really fun and customers were interesting to say the least. Management was quirky. The frozen yogurt was the bomb!!

    Cons

    Not a lot in terms of payment. Tips were earned, but only given at the end of the month, so it wasn't really worth it. We all suffered under constant changes.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people with personality and don't promote the bad seeds. Also, give us a little more time to accomplish tasks. Let us take initiatives.

    Pros

    "Fun" place to work if you're young.

    Cons

    Everything from pay to hours to work ethics. Obviously all stores will vary based on management but from my experience, most of them don't care about their employees.

    Pros

    I had an excellent time working at Pinkbery. I liked it because the crew was young and the company seemed to be very lgbt friendly.

    Cons

    The job could get stressful and hectic. Just remain calm. People will wait for their Pinkberry. Seemed to run out of Original yogurt mix a lot.

    Advice to Management

    don't take yourself too seriously.

    Pros

    They promote people out of desperation

    Overworked and underpaid. Management is drunk at the wheel. Child labor violations and safety violations are everyday and common place

    Treat your people better, actually allow room for growth.

    Pros

    After my promotion I received good/decent pay. We split tips between shift leads and team members and could make bus fare, or lunch money, or even more. After a standard period of warming up to each other, employees usually ended up working well together and having a good time. We got to sample the flavors every time the changed and got a free one (or more) per shift. Also, got to take home pints of it on the nights the machines needed to be broken down and sanitized.

    Cons

    Sometimes I felt as if they kind of through out into the wild with no survival skills because the training wasn't thorough. My first round of training was apparently not up to par, so I felt a little uncomfortable when two months in I was politely getting picked apart and told a whole new way of service and responsibility that my first manager and team didn't seem keen to pass on. There were plenty of shake-ups. Franchise ownership, then sold to corporate, then bought out by a company and eventually shut down on New Years day with no warning. Which understandably caused a walkout by the team members. I had three managers while I was there and two of them were exceptionally cool, younger guys who were really trying to make it work, but everything was so mismanaged, that I don't think they ever got it together. There are more cons to my location that I would list, but it was shut down and I feel they are inconsequential now.
