    Pros

    pros are that community is close-knit and people usually get along with one another. people are usually younger. Also, you can get a free drink a day. You also learn how to make smoothies.

    Cons

    Cleaning up the gutter, taking out the trash, and getting messy from washing blenders.

    I have been working at Jamba Juice part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    I was a part-timer at Jamba Juice as a team member. The friendly co-workers that motivates me to do well, it have left a very good impression on me.

    Cons

    Early night shifts, so it does go very quiet and lonely at night, it depends on the location I guess. Long term is a problem. That is all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thank you, you the best.

    I have been working at Jamba Juice full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Entry Level Hiring
    50% off all products

    Cons

    No Free Smoothies
    No Benefits
    Low Hours
    Terrible Scheduling (often times schedule is released the night before a shift)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Obsession with Labor Costs has made the amount of employees in the store at one time decrease, and the work-load increase. More Work for the same wages leads to an increase in employees quitting.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
