    Pros

    Fun, friendly, fast paced environment.

    Cons

    Very high turnover with employees, because they can't handle how fast paced it is in the summer time. This leaves management and other employees short handed and constantly training new people which can be frustrating when it's busy.

    Current Employee - Shift Lead

    Pros

    Learned about cogs (cost of goods), inventory, FIFO (organization expiring of product), professionalism, customer service, register, training new employees, and how to manage a team of 4-8 people at once. You can get promoted if you work hard, and show pride in your work. They really taught is about marketing and customer service, its pushed a lot!

    Cons

    Sometimes it gets stressful during rushes, I felt like I had a lot of responsibility because I tried very hard to meet the Jamba standard, the smoothies are a bit pricey for guests so sometimes they complain- but that comes with all fresh healthy product.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To communicate more and socialize with the team members!

    Cons

    I 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
