    I worked at Jamba Juice (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great coworkers, positive enviornment, delicious smoothies. Pay is higher than minimum wage, great for a first part time job.

    Cons

    Sometimes, the positive attitude exerted will seem forced. The music in the stores can get extremely redundant.

    Pros

    Because I think it a very good job for me and I. An help my mom pay the bills and get my own car

    Cons

    Pros

    taking charge of own shift managerial experience (interviewing and training) above minimum wage pay, get a dollar raise per year you stay with the company 401(k), health insurance, dental

    Cons

    butt load of responsibility, so if you screw up in training or on something in a shift (money, etc.) it is your fault. sometimes, its incredible to realize how dumb people (customers and employees); working with inexperience, mostly high school students (low ambition and working knowledge of cusotmer service) shift managers are sometimes told to leave early to save labor hours jamba is becoming a franchise so expect company cut backs

    Advice to Management

    KEEP UP WITH FRANCHISES BECAUSE THEY SHORTCUT JAMBA STANDARDS (FLEX-LOG, DATE-DOTING, ETC.)

    I worked at Jamba Juice (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I really enjoyed working at Jamba for the time I had there ( 4 months) Met a lot of people ,customers and employees , that were just great.

    Cons

    The only downside is that the turnover is very quick so no one really stayed and it was hard when rushes came in huge spurts . And the recent management was not great , more so the swift change was very rude .

    Advice to Management

    If you have a great manager , keep them. Don't switch them out so quickly and then the store goes to crap in just about a month.

    I worked at Jamba Juice full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I loved the fast paced work environment with strong upward mobility. The strong emphasis on improving the culture energized me. Jamba Juice is constantly trying to balance strong sales results with the youthful energy as displayed in their 2007 SNL skit. Amazing talent seen from entry level to upper management.

    Cons

    Profit strongly driven by weather. Reactive vs proactive sales initiatives. Inconsistent employee yearly review process (there was no review process for 2014)

    Advice to Management

    Marisa Garcia and Ian Shocklie were exemplary leaders. They lead with genuine energy, enthusiasm, and unwavering resolve. It was a pleasure to produce outstanding results with their leadership and there should be extra steps to ensure those leaders are recognized, rewarded, and counseled.
