    Work on your accountability, not just your employee's accountability. You really have to lead by example, or else no one will respect you.

    Pros

    4-6 hour's at times

    Not very good co-worker's

    Advice to Management

    If you could please fix the staffing or the management it would be a lot more better place. It's kinda not a very good place to work anymore

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

    Pros

    Great atmosphere at my store in Milpitas. Loved [most of] the team members. Great GM, Roland and DM, Kimmie. Considerate of my school schedule.

    Cons

    Only downside is the hours, if you become a shift manager. You're usually expected to work either open-12:30pm wish of 2:30-close ish and opening shifts tend to start at 5:30am while losing shifts tend to end around 10. Can be a little overwhelming for someone who's a full-time student as well.

    Pros

    They have good tasting smoothies; customers are nice.

    Cons

    Minimum wage pay; boss watches live stream on cameras at home and calls the store constantly; co workers are slow and unmotivated; crappy employee discount.

    Advice to Management

    Get a manager who has extensive experience running a smoothie shop. Not just someone who has enough money to open a franchise. The manager and owner should be two different people.

    Pros

    Health-conscious atmosphere, work is fun (making smoothies)

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

    Pros

    - (Mostly) fun coworkers
    - Sometimes we got to take expired food home
    - Worked at a slow store so there was lots of down time

    Cons

    - Absolutely awful franchise owners who did not care about employee welfare or work environment in the slightest.
    - Appliances and supplies were ancient and we simply had to deal with it, despite it producing sub-par quality food/drinks, prevented us from giving fast service, etc.
    - Nothing ever got repaired in a timely manner. Our AC was down for over a month in the middle of summer, it peaked at 85 degrees inside and no one came in to fix it during that time, despite multiple maintenance requests.
    - Always, always, always understaffed because they were extremely conservative about spending money on labor, and they'd rather let us suffer and work twice as hard. For example, I often worked with just one other employee, the two of us taking care of 20+ customers at once.
    - I could go on and on.

    Advice to Management

    See the "cons" mentioned above.
