    I have been working at Jamba Juice part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The work is easy and the product is great. It is nice to work in a food industry job that allows for a healthy lifestyle and won't leave you smelling like work.

    Cons

    Hours are based on busy season and they are subject to change at any moment. Also ownership changes often which can sometimes bring change

    Advice to Management

    The store works best when the staff likes being there. Instead of punching labor and sales work on staffing relatioknships which generally improves the results of the latter.

    I worked at Jamba Juice part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fast paced, yet fun environment. I learned to deal with people while working my first job here at Jamba. The management was awesome and my co-workers were like family!

    Cons

    Scheduling was the only complaint that I had. Some people just wouldn't show up and didn't face any consequences.

    Advice to Management

    Have a more firm policy for those who didn't show up so workers didn't have to work overtime

    I worked at Jamba Juice part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The hours would go by really fast because of the fast paced environment, there was never nothing to do, I was constantly moving. And as I proceeded to gain seniority I would perform directing actions towards fellow team members.

    Cons

    Not very many! Loved working there, great coworkers. Only thing is it is very active you will be working for your pay.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!
