    I worked at Planet Smoothie full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Easy, great for college or high school students. If you have a great manager you can gain some good life skills here. I learned how to become a leader and make decisions. I enjoyed interacting with customers as their was a gym next door.

    Cons

    If I had to pick a con I guess it would be cleaning. This type of job requires you to the mop the floors, clean the restrooms, clean the fridges etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work!

    I enjoyed working there very much. It might just be me but making smoothies is more fun than work.

    Pros

    You get to create delicious things and make people happy. Really fun and healthy environment. Easy to know whats needed of you. Great stepping stone for future careers in health or business. Awesome tips and discounts. Fast paced with plenty of time to also relax and get things done (depending on the area). Good raises, great place to learn.

    Cons

    Corporate sometimes doesn't listen to suggestions or doesn't see things from the employees point of view. Franchise business means a lot of variability between management at stores; some places have no managers and others do. Some stores force you to work one person per shift while others have overlapping shifts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employees. Don't overcharge for the smoothies and scare away all the customers. Rework the menu to find the actual cost of the smoothies and price accordingly. Add a "make your own smoothie" option and pricing, so we can set limitations when people want more customization. Get rid of the vanilla extract its really unnecessary. Put managers in every store.

    I worked at Planet Smoothie part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I Got 3 promotions within 2 years, including above-average pay raises. I started at minimum wage and was making $9.00 an hour by the end of my second year. I had flexible work hours and very friendly co-workers. It was a very laid back atmosphere. I enjoyed working there part-time and would recommend it to anyone for a part-time job.

    Cons

    Management was not in the store as much as I had hoped, a lot of goofing off and wasting time by employees. Also, after shift manager, there is not much room for promotion. Thus it is a good job for high school or college students.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Visit the store locations more often and be more available to the staff.

    Pros

    It's easy work. You get a free smoothie everyday. It's not very demanding and you are never that busy.

    Cons

    The people you work for care more than you. You have to stand for a lot of the time and there is or hint to do when business gets slow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that you give college hires some more flexibility. I quit because I had no say in my scheduling.

    Pros

    Flexible hours, great pay. Got a raise very quickly and at one point received tips every other week that we did not get salaries

    Cons

    Rules were randomly enforced on some days but not others and VERY boring. Customers came in waves. We were not allowed to sit down so it was was tiring.

    I worked at Planet Smoothie

    Pros

    The environment could be enjoyable and it was certainly an entertaining job. There were many opportunities for concert sponsorships in which we were able to attend many great concerts.

    Cons

    There were times where all you'd do is clean because no one would come in. You'd often have to work alone. Peeling barrel after barrel of bananas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember that your employees are what make you successful, so treat them like humans.
