    Pros

    I started as a team member, moved on to training mentor, and ultimately advanced to team lead (shift manager) before leaving. It was nice to be promoted to leadership roles at a young age. The company culture emphasized the right things, such as empowerment, integrity and balance. Generally, managers were very respectful and listened to lower-level employees.

    Cons

    As a student, I was scheduled to work too many hours and the store was frequently understaffed. The job itself, while simple, got quite stressful at times.

    Advice to Management

    Understand that full-time students can't be expected to work 30+ hour weeks. Hire and schedule more people during times you know it will be busy. Hold everyone to the same standards.

    Pros

    jamba serves some great healthy products. they make it fresh and new to come to work every day, as they are constantly changing their product line.

    Cons

    too much change. too little vision within senior management. with all the food products, it seems they don't even want to serve smoothies anymore. they force you to become a food "salesperson" at the register, and final written warnings are given when you fail to upsell the food items.

    Advice to Management

    stop changing your mind about the direction of the company last minute. too many cuts. too high of expectation of the staff. there is no time to wow our customers when we are constantly pushed to sell the food and hot beverages.
