    I worked at Jamba Juice part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There were not many. It was always a fun environment to be around. Sometimes good music. Got to create a lot of good friendships

    Cons

    Not as healthy as they make it to be. Opportunites for advancement. General manager etc. low pay

    Advice to Management

    The only advice I have, is to create an environment that will make Jamba Juice a fun place to work. Don't be that manager that everyone hates working with.

    I worked at Jamba Juice (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The manger is extremely efficient. Knew what she was doing, assigns tasks well, does her job well, helps us when the store is busy...Employees not too bad either. The store I worked at was hella busy, so the time just flew 50% off everything =)

    Cons

    When it's not busy they just let you leave earlyeven if you're scheduled to work certain hours -_- Almost every retail/food companies do it so I guess its common. Unethical if you ask me though

    Pros

    Free food and juices on shift

    Cons

    All the stuff they sell is actually super unhealthy, so even though it's free, you will still get fat consuming it. Jamba is losing to the real juice bars popping up. Don't bother with this company

    Advice to Management

    Chill tf out its just smoothies

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

    Pros

    High energy, great culture. The business empowered individuals to excellence. There was a sense opportunity of promotion and upward mobility throughout the company. They push healthy products.

    Cons

    There is ambiguity in the business model, even though the business model is modeled after any food service retailer. The company shifted from company owned stores to mainly a large district franchiser. When I left there were huge labor cuts to make quarterly earnings. This is why I left.

    Advice to Management

    Don't sacrifice long run investment and culture for short run profits and metrics. Outsourcing did not seem like the best business strategy.

    I love this job. Great people and lots of ways to grow.

    Cons

    I believe they underpay people and do not value all of their workers
