    Pros

    pros are that community is close-knit and people usually get along with one another. people are usually younger. Also, you can get a free drink a day. You also learn how to make smoothies.

    Cons

    Cleaning up the gutter, taking out the trash, and getting messy from washing blenders.

    I worked at Jamba Juice part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Working at Jamba Juice is perfect for a high school student or college undergraduate looking to earn a little spending money. The majority of the front line employees are young workers which provides for a lively atmosphere.

    Benefits include 50% discounts which is really nice for people who like to get a smoothie regularly.

    Cons

    It's a job in the food industry so pay isn't the greatest.

    During summers business gets extremely busy so be prepared for that.

    Pros

    friendly, always something to do, flexible, clean, fresh,

    Cons

    Schedule is done manually (i don't know if that is common) so if you want what you request hope the assistant manager likes you. working hard helps.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    put a security camera in the office.

    I worked at Jamba Juice

    Pros

    The coworkers are generally your age and pretty awesome, fast paced environment, if you have a cool manager you can typically make your own drinks and such

    Cons

    Definitely a corporate kind of vibe. The company culture would be a lot better if you weren't being hounded by a couple different bosses to meet certain goals and say/do certain things to the customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep in mind that most of the people that you're hiring are in high school or around the college age.

    I worked at Jamba Juice

    Pros

    Hands on training of new employees. Friendly environment. Not micromanaged from General Manager. Hours are flexible. With the right employees, it can be a rewarding job.

    Cons

    Some General Managers are more concerned with the store's bottom line, in which case it can be frustrating to jump through many hoops that are inconsiderate of your time, as well as the employees you are responsible for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None, It's a great company, and run efficiently and effectively

    I worked at Jamba Juice full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good people, fun brand, opportunity to move around is very good (better than at most companies), and warm culture.

    Cons

    Some of the leadership team is good, but some seem to lack good business judgement and vision. I often saw the company trying to do too many things at once instead of focusing their teams' efforts on critical objectives that made more sense for the brand.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on efforts that address/improve the core essence of the brand. Don't try to do too many things at once or you will not do any one thing well. Make sure to show appreciation for employees and encourage/reward exceptional work.
