    Pros

    It is really an enjoyable place to work because the people are great and at its peak season its so faced paced work goes by quickly.

    Cons

    Attracts a younger employee base which ultimately means if you are older than 20 you will be older than majority of the workers and even your supervisors. The company also puts too much pressure on supervisors to over coach the employees which makes such an easy and enjoyable job sometimes a nuisance.

    Advice to Management

    Stop coaching so much it hurts the moral of the team. Instead, focus on the team as a whole and pick and choose whats the most important time and thing to give feedback on

    The people were the best part. The CEO Dave Pace was really sharp and remembered everyone's name.

    I worked at Jamba Juice part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great store atmosphere, competitive hours, excellent training and growth opportunities for employees. The company really believes in the product & message, making it easy & enjoyable to get behind the product to push sales & promote. Employees get a company discount as well.

    Cons

    Store and Team Members are extremely influential to employee happiness, and not all stores are the same when it comes to motive and management style. Team members vary in level and style of training, making it difficult --and actually unenjoyable, to work & cover shifts at other stores. My experiences with other stores were quite bad. I saw how inconsistent the company was at the management level, which was unfortunate. Many times I never recieved a lunch break, or 10 min. break, while workiing an 8 hour shift; worked overtime without pay, was asked to drive vitamin boosts to surrounding stores but never compensated for the gas, and worked busiest hours with store very understaffed (all serving to increase daily store profit).

    Advice to Management

    Regulate how store managers are running their stores in a much more effective manner. Unite Jamba Juice employees so that customer experience and staff experience feels relatively the same regardless of the store location.

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

    Pros

    Jamba Juice is a fun place to work, and if you show your store manager that you mean business, you can work your way to being a shift manager. Employees get half off products, which is great especially if you want some really healthy options for cheap.

    Cons

    Like any food service job I would assume, it can be a little stressful, especially during the summer when business is heavy. Management lacks some communication.

    Advice to Management

    Management could use better communication among all shift managers and with the whole team.
