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

    Pros

    Fun, relaxed environment. The job is fun, you essentially take orders, make orders (smoothies, juices, bowls, wheat grass shots), it's pretty fun and extremely easy. Other tasks are simple, wiping down counters, washing (rinsing) blenders, sweep, mop. Restocking the jam baskets we use to hold fruits is probably the only somewhat strenuous task, but even that's incredibly easy. You are hanging out doing nothing 40% of the time, at least at my location. You get smoothies alllll day come on now. I feel healthy working there.

    Cons

    The pay is really low. There's not really a way to get a higher position. You can become a team lead for 1.00 more an hour but it doesn't seem worth it and you can easily tell if they are willing to make you a team lead, or not, even thought the tasks seem completely doable. Hours are hard to get, sparse.

    Advice to Management

    Not too much to complain about. Sometimes during an opening shift my manager is in the back the entire time, even when I have a few customers. It's totally doable and I understand they probably have work on the computer, but I don't see why I should have to be rushing a bunch of orders single-handedly.

    Pros

    If your coworkers are good people then you'll love it here. Jamba Juice has a culture of positivity, health, and friendliness. People who work here are generally very nice and management are usually friendly happy people. I stayed longer than I thought I would because of the fun environment. There is also a lot of job mobility given that you show potential.

    Cons

    - Your clothes will get stained with bleach (from sanitizing the dishes)
    - The time it takes to close is unpredictable, usually depends on how busy the day that dictates how much time employees have to pre-close
    - The company policies are sometimes very cheesy (saying hello to everyone who walks in)
    - Your enjoyment of the job largely depends on the skill of your coworkers and their personalities
    - It's a messy job, you'll never leave a shift without having fruits somewhere on you

    Advice to Management

    Be friendly otherwise your employees will hate and resent you. Only be strict if your employees are acting up.
