    Pros

    - The exciting atmosphere was contagious, from the employee, to the owner, to the customer.
    - High morale (mostly)
    - Free Jamba at each shift!
    - Made long-lasting friendship
    - Perfect job for young students
    - Decent tips (though not as good as a barista)

    Cons

    -It was so hard to get off work on the occasional Saturday. At least it was to most of the employees. A few would charm their way out of it.
    -Handbook was extensive and complex. I was a Jamba trainer and it's impossible for even the most absorbent person to be able to use the information as corporate would want. But maybe it's impossible for corporate not to have such a manual, considering the size of the company.
    -The orange and carrot juicers are a pain to clean.

    Advice to Management

    Though hard workers are wanted and needed, they should receive first choice for time off over the slackers.

    Pros

    Positive atmosphere, healthy environment, energetic music. I worked here while in college and it was a great part time job.

    Cons

    You leave smelling like a smoothie every day, but other than that, nothing bad to say.

    Pros

    Fun, energetic, healthy. This is a good company to work for if you are looking for a part time job.

    Cons

    Low pay, early or late hours. I would not suggest working for this company full-time, at least not as a store manager.

    Advice to Management

    Allow the store managers to have freedom and treat your employees with respect.

    Pros

    Team members and co-workers are great, customers are great, environment is great. Basically there are many positives but the pay is low

    Cons

    The Jamba I was at was a franchise and they were awful at upkeeping the store. Management was not the best because the district managers were lazy and did not care about anything

    Advice to Management

    keep the equipment looking good and relatively new

    Pros

    the brand and what they stand for is good and you also get free drinks when working in the office. and a discount card to the stores.

    Cons

    They work you like an animal. In the finance office we are like cattle working 12 hours a day and at night and weekends.

    Advice to Management

    How are we going to get the stock up? the reverse split has kept the company at $3 for 5 years...
