    Overworked Under paid

    Assistant General Manager (Current Employee)
    Emeryville, CA

    ProsJamba is a great company to work for great environment, daily tasks are not difficult and don't require a lot of training to do. Great team to work with (most of the time) healthy atmosphere, and fair management.

    ConsDuring the summer you will be required to work long shifts and be working hard at long periods of the shift, minimum wage is not negotiable, willing to wake up early and close late.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay more.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Fun and memorable!

    Team Member (Current Employee)
    Irvine, CA

    ProsAwesome people and a great atmosphere. I would definitely recommend working here for a first job!

    ConsOnly work availability for our on-campus location was Mon-Fri, 6:45AM-9PM. It's hard to do if you are a busy student worker.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI worked at an on-campus location so the senior management might have been drastically different than other management. Our senior management disliked our location and was very blunt about it. They always hassled us and got mad at us for the smallest things that didn't even matter.

    Meh

    Team Member (Former Employee)
    Austin, TX

    ProsFree smoothies were probably the best part

    ConsI had food poisoning act up during a shift and my manager would not let me go home. I'm talking about going to the bathroom every 10 minutes. This was a major health hazard and it was ridiculous

    Advice to Senior ManagementCome on....

    Team Member (Former Employee)

    ProsIt was a fun working environment and the staff and management were friendly.

    ConsThere is no real room for growth even of you get promoted to lead you will likely never become manager.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't play favorites promotions should be earned for hardwork.

    Not paid enough for all the trouble.

    Team Member (Current Employee)
    San Jose, CA

    Pros- Fun people to work with
    - Given the right team, flexible hours that work with your schedule
    - A good stepping stone.

    Cons- High turn-over rate
    - Low pay
    - Stressful

    The particular location I work at has an incredibly high turnover rate, so people are constantly stressed. I've worked with other store locations where it seems like everyone knows what they are doing and have enough people - sadly, my store does not have such luxuries.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
