Now's the time to show off your extensive knowledge of Jamba Juice! Tell the interviewer all about their delicious energy bowls and amazing juice shots. If you haven't had an energy bowl yet, visit the store and try one before your interview! Be able to say, 'I love the nonfat greek yogurt bowl, topped with blueberries, bananas and granola! I probably eat an energy bowl once a week, if I am near a Jamba Juice during lunch. It's an amazing quick snack, and an awesome way to avoid making stops at unhealthy fast food restaurants.'
"I love Jamba Juice because of the Juices, Smoothies, and Energy Bowls. The energy and atmosphere make it a great place to visit, and enjoy a small meal on the go. It is one of my favorite places to stop and visit with my friends. I'm really excited about the opportunity to be able to work at Jamba Juice. This career opportunity, would really excel myself, and teach me new skills and develop business skills such as teamwork and leadership." When answering this question, give a personal example for why you love Jamba Juice. Then switch the focus of your answer to why this opportunity would be great for your career!

"Making great smoothies for customers! Being able to see how they appreciate a healthy meal option. Being in an environment where I can learn great skills for my own career, in the future. Having the opportunity to advance within a growing company." Those are a few easy answers to this question, and should impress the interviewer!

Good question! An easy answer would be a non-smoothie item. That will show the interviewer you know more about Jamba Juice than just smoothies. Tell the interviewer, "I've been really anxious to try an energy bowl, they look very health and delicious!"
"I've been really anxious to try an energy bowl, they look very health and delicious!"
This question is there to see if you describe yourself as a positive person or not. Always answer these types of questions with more than a 'Yes'. Go into a short detail of why you are happy, what makes you happy, and how that will translate into this job. Example: 'Yes, I love my family, friends, and school. I am really excited about this opportunity to work at Jamba Juice, and am thrilled at the opportunity ahead if I am hired.'
We believe the best policy for this question is honesty. Tell them directly the time period you plan on staying and when you would plan on advancing your career in a different direction. If are unsure about your time period, well try to be sure before the interview! Saying you are unsure is a huge red flag. Being unsure, almost sounds dishonest. Or it signals you haven't put much thought into your career other than filling out a few job applications. So get to know your plan before walking into the interview.
The interviewer is hoping to hear that there is no reason to not hire you! Simply tell the interviewer that you would be a great employee, and confidently share that there is no reason to not hire you! You might wrap it up by sharing that you are customer focused, have a proven employment record, and you really love Starbucks!
Is this your first job? If so, be honest with the interviewer, and tell them, "No, this is my first job, but I have learned from family and friends about working in retail, and I understand you will have angry customers in any setting. Therefore, I plan on doing my best job to take care of the customers needs. Making sure, him or her, leave happy, meanwhile, holding my own composure." If you have worked in retail before, then great! Easily give an example of when this has happened, and describe how you held your composure, and helped the customers needs.

An antioxidant is something that mainly comes from fresh fruits and vegetables. It is important for the body, because it prevents oxidation of molecules in our bodies. Which helps prevent or slows down diseases or illnesses. So you may get a similar question in your Jamba Juice interview, but be ready to explain: What is a GMO? What does organic food mean? What is wheatgrass? Knowing these simple questions will definitely build your confidence level and will help you in your job interview.
This should be an easy question! "Amazing Greens and the Pomegranate Paradise!" You don't have to go to in-depth with your answer, just name two smoothies and move on to the next interview question. No need to be over chatty when questions are to the point.
"Amazing Greens and the Pomegranate Paradise!"
This is a basic question that is only testing if you shop at Jamba Juice or not. Try to avoid saying once a year or never. Keep your answer simple: 'My family and I love to stop at Jamba Juice every Sunday after visiting my grandparents. I've tried almost all the smoothies, but my favorite is a Berry Banana smoothie. '
Know that Jamba Juice is more than just a smoothie shop. Start with researching their story, found here: http://www.jambajuice.com/blend-in-the-good/about-jamba Kirk Perron started Juice Club in 1990. Yes, Jamba Juice was once called Juice Club! Mike decided to change the name to something more fun. If you tell the interviewer that story, they will surely be impressed! Next, know that Jamba Juice enjoys supporting their local communities by donating 1.7 million a year to them. Finally, tell the interviewer that you know Jamba Juice uses only real fruits and veggies in all their menu items. They use, no artificial flavors, no artificial preservatives, and finally no high fructose corn syrup.
First, have a passion for what Jamba Juice does. They make healthy smoothies for customers. As we have stated throughout this answer guide, it is very important to have the same passion for healthy meal options as Jamba Juice does, and to take your own healthy eating seriously. With that said, you can easily tell the interviewer about your own experiences and how they are aligned with Jamba Juice as a reason you want to work for the company. Second, think about your own situation. Are you currently in High School? Great, tell them you would love the opportunity to work at Jamba Juice, because you love the company, and want to start saving money for college and would really appreciate this job. Are you in college? Simple; say you are a frequent visitor of Jamba Juice, and would love to work here so you can afford basic college expenses, such as books and your meal plan. Remember, try to align your passion with Jamba Juice first, before talking about money. No interviewer wants to hear your only reason for working at ANY company is simply for the money.
We like to think of these questions as unusual. It's unlikely an interviewer will ask you directly, if you enjoy your life. But you never know! Every interview is different. Think about what the interviewer is trying to understand about you. They want to see that you are a positive person, plain and simple. Do not hesitate when answering any of these questions. Simple say, 'Yes of course, my schooling is very great, and I love the education I am receiving at XYZ School, and am really looking forward to the opportunity of working at Jamba Juice to help me prepare and save for college.' Remember, the context of the answer is less important than the number of words you use to answer this question. What we mean by this is; refrain from just saying 'Yes of course.' Always give a reason!
This question is designed to see if you are a Jamba Juice fanatic, or just another job applicant. Go to this website: http://secretmenus.blogspot.com/p/jamba-juice-secret-menu.html And study the menu quickly. Know a couple smoothies off the menu, and be ready to say them to the interviewer.
As we stated in another interview answer: Is this your first job? If so, describe how you have studied retail, and talked to friends and family about this job, and you understand customer service. With that, describe how you will hold your composure, you will remain friendly, and do whatever you can within company guidelines to help the customer have a positive experience. If you have worked in retail before, then great! Easily give an example of when this has happened, and describe how you held your composure, and helped the customers needs.
Describe how you believe Jamba Juice will provide you with a great opportunity for learning and/or developing skills such as; teamwork, job responsibility, communication, customer service, and your leadership skills. Describe how you would love the opportunity to advance within Jamba Juice, as you know from researching their career website: found here: http://www.jambajuice.com/connect-with-jamba/careers That they provide their employees with many advancement opportunities. Be sure to research them all. Also, don't be afraid to say, if an advancement opportunity does not arise from within Jamba Juice, you know having their company on your resume will make you a stronger candidate for your own future opportunities.
Tell the interviewer about your extracurricular activities. Demonstrate to them how you never missed an after school activity. When you sign up for an organization, you are committed to them. Limit the number of extracurricular activities to a handful. Announcing more than 5 may signal to the interviewer; I'll be busy with activities 6 days out of the week and only available to work on Sundays. Another approach you may take, talk about how rare it is for you to miss school days. Say, 'Last year, I only missed one day of school due to a family emergency. I take great pride in my work and obligations, and would never miss an obligation or be late to one.' After you communicate to the interviewer how responsible you are, tell them 'Therefore, I am ready for this career at Jamba Juice because I have worked hard in all my previous obligations, and am now ready to start earning a wage and begin my working career.'
Yes of course! At Jamba Juice, working in a positive setting with other teammates is key. You must enjoy it, or a job opportunity at Jamba Juice might not be the choice for you. So tell the interviewer, 'Yes, absolutely! That is one of the reasons that attracted me to Jamba Juice; is the positive team environment. Every time you visit Jamba Juice, you noticed how well the team members communicated and enjoyed their job, and you can't wait to be a part of it!'
Immediately, tell a supervisor of the situation. Add some bonus points by saying, "If I want to be a shift leader or assistant general manager, I will not tolerate employee theft at any level, so it's important to be clear among the staff early that I will not tolerate any type of employee theft, gossip, or any breaking of the company rules.'
The interviewer wants to be sure you stay out of gossip. They care about running a smooth and successful business. Where there is gossip; employees are slacking, aren't focused on their job, and have priorities elsewhere. Tell the interviewer, you would stay out of the conversation. Go beyond that and say, "If a coworker approached me to gossip about McKenzie or Bryce (example names), I would say I am uninterested. I am here to work, my concerns are not on them, but on this company and my performance at Jamba Juice."
"If a coworker approached me to gossip about McKenzie or Bryce (example names), I would say I am uninterested. I am here to work, my concerns are not on them, but on this company and my performance at Jamba Juice."
