Pros: Cal Berkeley envirement, great frozen yogurt
Cons: only two registers so customer rushes lasted hours, pooled tips, no opportunity for raise or advancement
Cashiering and cash handling was my main duty at Yogurtland. I also prepped fresh fruit and frozen yogurt. I learned food prep and safety procedures. This was a small frozen yogurt shop so there was one manager and she worked very hard. It was her first business and she was skeptical of hiring outside help with management. Eventually she promoted one of the full time employees as assistant manager. My co-workers were upbeat and worked hard, we all did because it was extremely busy. There was no choice but to work hard and efficiently. Everyone who worked there developed or strengthened their work ethics. The hardest part of the job were the rushes of Cal Berkeley student we would get throughout the day. The line would be down the street for hours. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting to eat yogurt because I love it! Also our promotions were fun because we would give out cute spoons and offer freezer bags with the character of that promotion on them, we would get the uniform T-shirt of the promotion character to wear during our shift, I enjoyed that.
