    Pros

    Easy job
    Tips
    Get free food
    Sample flavors

    Cons

    You don't get recognized for all your hard work. Other employees who are young are allowed to slack off because they're "younger." Despite they're adults already. You talk to management and offer advice on things to improve on, they make it seem like they care but things only get worse. If you're a hard worker, I suggest you look elsewhere. And will be paid the sane as those who slack off.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and don't take advantage of those who do ALL the work.

    Pros

    Golden spoon has friendly, helpful staff members, all around a great working experience! Easy job to do as long as you work hard.

    Cons

    Could be a higher pay, but for a low skill job it is pretty reasonable. Great first job material for sure. Little cons about the job.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at golden spoon part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours and a great starting job. This job allows you to go to school and work at the same time and isn't extremely physically or mentally demanding. The company is small and intimate which allows for an easy going work atmosphere.

    Cons

    This isn't necessarily a job you make a career out of. Because it is so small, there isn't much room for future advancement. It is also extremely repetitive. Management doesn't give much incentive to go above and beyond for the company and there is very little to no positive appraisal.

    Advice to Management

    Give your employees positive incentives to work harder. Reward them for doing a good job and being successful, whether it be a small raise or an employee of the month recognition. Anything would be appreciated.

    All that's required is cleaning the store and keeping a positive attitude with the customers

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

    Update the store and offer more promotions
