I worked at Jamba Juice full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Not many pros a job, so you can pay bills. Free smoothies. People in the middle to lower end of the Company, tend to be very nice as they are in the same boat, having the go through the same things.

Cons

Franchise owner's are getting a bad deal, they need to be more informed on Jamba's sourcing practices. Franchise owner's are not getting their real values worth. Jamba is so "squeezed" to save the Company from closing it's doors, that they will doing anything to keep " wall street" happy. This means getting rid of higher paid people for lower level experienced people.

Advice to Management

Treat supplier's and people fairly.

    I have been working at Jamba Juice part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It's very easy, with a fun, bright environment, possibility to become a shift lead. The customers are a lot nicer than, say, coffee customers. Good for a high school student, not much else. Company makes a lot of revenues and offers a free smoothie during shift.

    Cons

    Management (in my district) is not good. There are some sketchy happenings with the "uppers." Management uses swear words and provides unprofessional environment, demoralizing the staff. Starting pay is 20 cents over minimum wage. Limited hours, unable to pay my bills. Note: this is a privately owned district, not corporate. It may be different in california.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees with respect. Grace begets grace. Training needs to come up to date with technology.

    Rude customers, hours are not steady and change every week, too much pressure and focus on upselling and numbers, instead of overall customer service.
