Smoothie/Juice Maker (Current Employee), Fredericton, NB – February 19, 2014
My favourite part about Booster Juice is the staff. We're a young group of people that are very welcoming of everybody and we love making the best out of our work days with lots of laughs but also lots of productivity. My manager is one of the best people I've met, he's very understanding and easy to get along with. It's the kind of job that you miss – more... being at even on your days off. – less
Smoothie Maker (Current Employee), St. John's, NL – February 9, 2014
Pros: free smoothie, friendly co-workers, interactive job, productive day
Cons: sore shoulder from pouring smoothies all day, loud noise
I go in and make smoothies mainly. I interact with a lot of customers about the health benefits of different menu items. Through training, I learned all of this. The owner is excellent. She interacts with her employees on a weekly basis. Everyone is so friendly at work, customers and co-workers. The hardest part of the job is picking out which smoothie – more... to have for lunch! The most enjoyable part of the job is how productive I feel when I am there. – less

Manager (Former Employee), Etobicoke, ON – September 18, 2013
Pros: friendly environment, not a stressful job.
Cons: employment hours are based on sales which are not consistent.
There is an open environment at Booster Juice, the company is great at balancing student life and schedule with work. The franchises are family owned which leads to a creative work environment to spark sales. Some examples would be, networking with other companies for lunches also sports teams.
I learned a great deal in my management position, including – more... payroll, scheduling, handling money/bank transactions, staff issues (hiring and termination) and inventory. – less

Pros: free drinks
Cons: long hours
A typical day at work is always busy specially rush hours. As a manager I learned a lot of things like handling people and customer complaints. I don't think there is a hard part of the job. In my opinion, if you understand, listen and follow the rules and regulations of the company everything will go smoothly the way it should be. The most enjoyable – more... part of the job is if you can see your reflection with your co-workers or your staff because that is the way you trained them and of course your relationship with the customers. – less

Associate (Current Employee), Ottawa, ON – April 26, 2013
Pros: free smoothies
Cons: heartless management
I would say, Booster Juice should be better than any other fast food places or even grocery places.
Unfortunately, we don't have an owner at my Booster Juice, so the corperate owns it. However, the corperate owner does not care for our store, and the manager he hired is absoultely horrible! Therefore, I believe the company has great culture/value but – more... it cannot be carried out.
Alike many of the fast food places and grocery stores. There is no place for advancement, and of course, you will not care if the job is secured, because you will try to find another job as soon as possible.
I have a very good colleague, but I still try to switch job as soon as possible :( – less
