    Pros

    I enjoyed being employed with Jamba Juice because i gained tons of nutritional information. It is a fun fast paced environment and the product is always delicious.

    Cons

    The summer time is a bit overwhelming, the lobby is completely filled and order tickets are overflowing to the floor.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, stress to your employees to keep their personal lifes and problems at home, work is no place for such things.

    Pros

    They were really understanding of the fact that I was still in high school and scheduled me accordingly. I also enjoyed working with people my own age ( high school/ college students) because it made for a fun work environment and team.

    Cons

    The pay raises are a joke (25 cents maximum raise at a time) and its had to get time off. What I didn't appreciate about the job was the second general manager our store had while I worked there. She would talk about employees behind their backs, play favorites, and pin them against each other to fight for promotions. She would take out her anger on employees by giving ones she didn't like zero hours, and the ones she liked overtime. However, with the right manager the job was fun and easygoing.

    Close to no chances of climbing up from team member, stressful busy times, few hours despite working hard for over a year, can get boring and frustrating when there's nothing to do, can get cut a lot

    Pros

    -I really enjoyed the interaction with guests and the relationships you build with co workers. - Discounts during breaks was the highlight during my employment.

    Cons

    -Management forced up selling upon you in a way that didn't seem organic - Understaffing lead to forced overtime and made work unpleasant.

    Advice to Management

    Respect the schedules of your employees and don't guilt trip them into working more hours. Also provide a easier way to up-sell instead of making it sound like a sales pitch.
