    I worked at Planet Smoothie part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Unlimited amount of smoothies while employed at the establishment.
    - Working in the mall gives you more scenery and a more enjoyable work environment.

    Cons

    - The Braintree location is clearly not up the OSHA standards, with mold beneath the counters and unsanitary towel, utensils, and containers.
    - Management is very unprofessional and at times very sketchy when it came to confronting the manager about unsafe and disgusting work conditions.
    - There is also always going to be a shortage in staff because of poor management and poor scheduling.

    Advice to Management

    The establishment needs to undergo new management.

    I worked at Planet Smoothie part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    working with energetic and fun people. Customers are generally nice and if you are good at communicating it should be easy to earn tip money.

    Cons

    This job can be fast paced and stressful at times. If you are not quick enough you can become easily overwhelmed.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employee thoughts of how to increase business or sales. I have heard many ideas which i think are great, yet fall short of becoming anything because the idea is not heard by the right people.

    Pros

    Tips are the only pros.

    Cons

    Conniving, rude, selfish, sneaky, and unbearable coworkers who are kept because they have been there the longest. They have even gone so far as to get other employees and managers fired. Corporate is no help at all. Scheduling is made based upon certain employees, so the rest either get shorter hours or none at all. Keeping track or your hours is a must.
    There are constant problems with the store shipments and the Tasti machines, which is out of the employees control, and it creates unnecessary tension and hostility between the employees and the patrons,
    There are a plethora of renovation that need to been done that would make the job more trouble-free, but they aren't deemed necessary by corporate.There is no room for advancement and pay raises seem very, very far and few between. It is a remarkably disorganized, stifling, and stressful work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees. Listen to your employees. Put your employees first. They're the one selling your products and are constantly in the store, they know what needs to be done.
