    Great first job. Great about entry level hiring, but loses any benefits after 6 months.

    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.

    Focuses on being happy rather than efficient. Can be stressful at times. Hard to request days off for vacation or a date.

    Pros

    It's fast paced and fun! Coworkers can be really fun, and it's great to work one on one with happy, energetic customers!

    Cons

    There's not a lot of room for growth, it's minimum wage and it's intended for teenagers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't waste food! Donate it to a local charity!

    It is decent. Franchise owners go back and forth on what their expectations are, which makes it confusing. Friendly environment, but lower gross salary for the sales volume.

    Pros

    Good hours, friendly owners, no micro-managing.

    Cons

    Lower base pay compared to sales volume, confusion on expectations, not very good bonus programs or vacation time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you state an expectation or a rule, stick to it. Don't go back on your word.
