    Former Employee - Shift Lead in San Francisco, CA

    I worked at Jamba Juice full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    -My last GM was the single best boss I've had in the retail sector.
    -Loved my fellow employees.
    -I really lucked out with the first two; your experience may vary depending on your co-workers and management team.
    -At the entry level, pay is basically fair for the amount of work expected (see Cons for after entry level, though).
    -I ate really healthily in my time there.
    -Retail food service: it's not like you're taking work home with you or anything, so that's a plus.

    Cons

    -Corporate penny pinching pressures managers to cut labor at every opportunity, even when it's unwise (during holidays and busy summer hours).
    -Paltry wages for the amount of work expected of Shift Leads and up (bare minimum wage even in areas with high cost of living). Promotion to shift lead triples your responsibilities, with only a dollar ($1!) raise.
    -Pathetic benefits package. Cheaper and better health care just opting out and going through Covered California.
    -A constant stream of new product launches leads to training headaches and customer dissatisfaction as old favorites are bumped to make room for some clueless MBA's next big idea-which invariably fails.
    -Misleading sales practices. There's sugar in fruits, you know.
    -At the store before my last, an outside-hire GM with no experience with the company routinely screwed up day-to-day operations due to her lack of training and habit of clocking out three hours before her shift. Neither her direct superior nor her fellow GMs were willing to pick up her slack, nor could she be fired because of her relationship to another district manager's brother. It made working there a living hell, as we were understaffed and new hires could hardly prevail upon a GM who knew nothing to help them out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -James White: Maybe we'd have more money for labor if you weren't blowing it on extravagant houses. This comes straight from a contractor you used who happened to visit my store and noticed we were understaffed in the summer months.

    -Obviously, promote from within. There's nothing more spirit-crushing than knowing you as a Lead know more than your own General Manager.

    -Foster a true sense of community responsibility and care for the employees. Take the examples learned from effective GMs (like my last boss) and incorporate that into your training regime. Otherwise, you get a bunch of disrespectful 21-year-olds with filthy mouths and smoking habits calling the shots for people ten years their senior (like my first boss).

    -If you're trying to create a culture of health and compassion, start with your own. Better pay, better consistency with hours.

    -Have DMs do their g.d. jobs and resolve conflicts on the ground. I had to basically put down a mutiny myself as my team members wised up to the fact that their GM was bloody incompetent, with no help from the DM or Corporate.

    -HIRE MORE STAFF.
