    Pros

    The management team was pretty chill in my experience there meaning that they were patient and understanding, and very good about giving time off and such. The payment system is reliable like most gigantic companies. It was easy to catch on quickly to my responsibilities, and overall it's just a good place to dip your toes in the food service industry. Also you get a break during your shift by policy which some food service jobs do not allow, and you get an employee discount which is pretty cool.

    Cons

    the schedule is unreliable (it changes week to week) AND their work weeks are wednesday-tuesday so it was irritating wanting to plan out my week on sunday or so but not knowing for sure when i would be working next. Also, in my experience management hired too many people during my time there so everyone was complaining about not getting enough hours; if you didnt need the money so much it was just a little annoying not to be making more money, but if you were really relying on the paycheck it was legitimately unfair.

    Advice to Management

    I approve of the relaxed environment the management team at my store facilitated but sometimes on the flip side it also brought about some disorganization. The only part that I felt really truly needed to be addressed was the overhiring issue. I realize how many applicants there are, but for that very reason I think that hirings should be more strategic than they were while I was there so that A) management is satisfied by the shifts always being covered and B) the employees can all be satisfied by meeting their hours and subsequently paycheck expectations without labor being too high.

    Advice to Management

    Somehow, you've created an excellent "family" of workers, and I'm so happy that Jamba only hires the best in Customer Service. It was a wonderful company to work fore, sometimes I miss working there a lot!
