    Pros

    Half off food always and the people that work there are often times nice. Relaxed vibe, as long as you can get smoothies out in a timely fashion.

    Cons

    Cutting hours to save dollars is never fun when there's a rush. Customers get upset and employees get frustrated.

    Advice to Management

    Sick people should never be asked to come to work if they can't get their shift covered. Nobody wins when a sick person is making smoothies.

    Pros

    50% discount on anything you see on the store, hands on environment, decent customers, health conscious company, nice shift managers, opportunity to learn about vitamins, nutrition, and their effects on the body, good practice in creativity with smoothies

    Cons

    few hours, some occasions of rude customers, horrible scheduling decisions, employees who don't take initiative, stress on closing especially after stress on peak hours

    Advice to Management

    3 hours shifts are a joke. There have been occasions when I was scheduled 2.5 hours.
    Please staff properly on schedule so other team members don't suffer and guests don't wait ridiculous times. it's better to be overstaffed THEN CUT rather than have inadequate bodies at all.

    I worked at Jamba Juice part-time

    Pros

    Very laid back job. Fun people to work with. If you like to work with people, then this is the place for you.

    Cons

    The store was closed due to insufficient funds and went out of business. That all really depends on the franchise owner though. Changes to some recipes of the smoothies were monthly. There is a book of old smoothies that used to be on the menu. Those were ordered a lot, so I am not sure why they were removed from the menu.

    Advice to Management

    My manager did one hell of a job and made this part time job very enjoyable. One thing that I would change would be to stop the monthly changes to the recipes. Though that might be due to corporate and not the management.
