    I worked at Jamba Juice part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I liked working there and I loved talking with the customers and making the customers happy.

    Cons

    I did not like that we had so many smoothies and how we had to remember them. And the 3 minute rule to give to customers.

    Advice to Management

    I believe management should train more and not have so many smoothies.

    Pros

    Great work environment with very friendly employees and customers

    Cons

    As would be expected, many young and inexperienced employees

    Advice to Management

    Have a few more experienced employees in each store, at times it was mostly highschoolers who sometimes need someone to teach them how to be an employee

    Pros

    fun summer job for high school or college students easy menu to learn meet great people healthy eating creative styles good training for teens

    Cons

    depending on the franchise or owner, will make the job difficult. the owner was very picky and mean. it seem like he only hired based on physical appearance. he said i was cute which was a plus into getting the job

    Advice to Management

    better communication with employees. do not talk to like a slave

    I worked at Jamba Juice (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Easy job. Good job out of high school to perfect customer service skills.

    Cons

    Low pay. Company would rather enhance uniforms then give back to hard working employees. Two years with no raises.

    Advice to Management

    Reward your team and keep what works. Stop changing menus and items every few months.

    I worked at Jamba Juice part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You will often get free food (the "expired" food at the end of the day), the people you work with will provide you entertainment, and it's not that hard of a job.

    Cons

    The system of management between upper management and mid-level management was very scattered, but that could be due to our particular place having an absolutely crazy person for a store manager.

    Advice to Management

    Give the employees better breaks, and give people their schedules at least 2 weeks in advance so they know when they have to work!

    Pros

    Fun and fast pace when it's "Jamba" season

    Cons

    The company needs to keep the menu simpler.

    Corporate doesn't understand what we go through in the stores when they launch new products.

    Pros

    Fun to work if you are working with the right people

    Cons

    Pay was not good enough for the amount of work necessary.

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest making some things easier on the workers and simplifying things for them.
