    Flexible, fun, constant on the job learning, they work with school schedules and are based towards high energy people. Great people!

    Physically a hard job. Requires a lot of repetitive movement and ability to work with a wide variety of employees.

    Advice to Management

    It's about people and the service or experience provided to the external and internal guests connect and get to know the people.

    Pros

    Teaches stress management. During the summer, the work load can become extreme, so you learn to thrive under pressure.

    Cons

    Limited opportunities for growth. People worked for years without being promoted, and even when they were promoted the pay raise was very small. Most did not promote.

    Advice to Management

    Pay the employees more, minimum wage is only going to keep high-schoolers and below applying for jobs. The company might be better served with an older staff, i.e college age +

    Hire people with actual leadership skills. Someone who can mange a whole team of workers and make an effective schedule.

    Pros

    I learned a lot of valuable skills working for Jamba Juice. This job successfully taught me a lot of skills that I will use in the future such as upselling, communicating with customers, and how to work as a team. Aside from making drinks, a typical day at work would include a lot of detailing and interacting with customers. Management did a great job with working with your schedule, and did a great job communicating with the team.

    Cons

    Middle Management hadn't trained managers very well.

    Advice to Management

    Better middle and lower management training.
