    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...

    Pros

    pros are that community is close-knit and people usually get along with one another. people are usually younger. Also, you can get a free drink a day. You also learn how to make smoothies.

    Cons

    Cleaning up the gutter, taking out the trash, and getting messy from washing blenders.

    Pros

    Working at Jamba Juice is perfect for a high school student or college undergraduate looking to earn a little spending money. The majority of the front line employees are young workers which provides for a lively atmosphere.

    Benefits include 50% discounts which is really nice for people who like to get a smoothie regularly.

    Cons

    It's a job in the food industry so pay isn't the greatest.

    During summers business gets extremely busy so be prepared for that.

    Pros

    friendly, always something to do, flexible, clean, fresh,

    Cons

    Schedule is done manually (i don't know if that is common) so if you want what you request hope the assistant manager likes you. working hard helps.

    Advice to Management

    put a security camera in the office.

  8. Completely disorganized smaller company that refuses to invest in technology at the store level.

    Pros

    The training was fairly thorough for this industry type and the trainer/District Manager offer a great deal of support when you're first placed in your store.

    Cons

    Managers are expected to work on the floor 90% of the time and the work is remedial and very physical. I had a great deal of technology issues with the registers, back computer, etc. and headquarters is not prepared to fix them in a timely manner at all.

    Free smoothie for every shift!

    Cons

    The entire shift was a con besides the free smoothie.

    Pros

    The coworkers are generally your age and pretty awesome, fast paced environment, if you have a cool manager you can typically make your own drinks and such

    Cons

    Definitely a corporate kind of vibe. The company culture would be a lot better if you weren't being hounded by a couple different bosses to meet certain goals and say/do certain things to the customers.

    Advice to Management

    Keep in mind that most of the people that you're hiring are in high school or around the college age.

  11. Good experience
