    Advice to Management

    I was located in the Jamba Juice in Times Square, my manager Mario Lugo was a great leader. Unfortunately, he is no longer with Jamba Juice but he was great at leading the flagship store throughout the year. He noticed the good and the bad in every employee. It was a privilege working with him.

    I worked at Jamba Juice (More than a year)

    Pros

    I really enjoyed working here. You learn a lot of customer service skills and it helps you become more of a positive person because the environment there is upbeat. You can also work up to be a shift manager as well as general manager.

    Cons

    There are no cons. N/A

    Advice to Management

    Depending on which manager you work with, they'll expect you to follow or do something a certain way, but the manager does not do it or does the total opposite.


  7. "Great for Millennials!"

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

    Pros

    I loved working here, always had a blast. Plus I was made a team leader, which was a great opportunity for me at the time! I also have never forgotten a recipe, they trained me so well.

    Cons

    It can be long, long hours. It is possible that was just my franchise store though. If the shift is 8 hours, I think an hour break is appropriate, not a half.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure your team doesn't get burnt out!
