    4-6 hour's at times
    Day or night time

    Cons

    Awful management
    Not a nice place to work
    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 (Less than a year)

    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.

    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.

    Pros

    Very fun job open to all different types of people & personalities. Room for growth and on the job experience.

    Not enough hours to go around for how many people they want you to have staffed to keep everyone happy. This creates high turnover. So always training new people.

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

    Pros

    There was flexible hours and the staff were very favorable. My coworkers made the experience easier on myself. The product was good and real. The major problems were dealt with by the upper management.

    Cons

    The management was very lackluster. The manager that hired me was frequently gone because of being hungover. The cleanliness of my particular store was under par (however was dealt with).

    Advice to Management

    Stricter cleaning enforcement. Hire more reliable management above the team members. Add a program or space on the receipt so people can add a tip if they want.
