Stressful: there are better places to work
Juicer/Cashier (Former Employee) – Mission Viejo, CA – January 31, 2019
A juicer at Nekter has a variety of responsibilities: making drinks/bowls, prepping fruits and vegetables, cleaning, and working the register. All of this is fine on paper, but due to poor management and the overall setup of the store, it becomes much more stressful than it needs to be.
I can't say if this is true for all Nekter locations, but we were constantly understaffed, and the juicer machines were poorly maintained, breaking every day. Both of these resulted in an endless pile of tickets and angry customers.
Management was very disorganized, and did not set its workers up for success. They admitted to not maintaining their hardware properly when problems started arising.
As a part time job, there are better options. You will be under CONSTANT stress here, with absolutely nothing in return. Other jobs have commission, tips, bonuses, and less stress overall. You will constantly be thinking "they don't pay me enough for this," and you're right!
I was also only scheduled for six hours a week, and wasn't even officially out of training after a month. It just shows the inefficiency of the management of this branch.
However, making smoothies and bowls was pretty fun, and the coworkers were nice.
Stressful, poor management, poorly maintained juicer machines, no job growth, bad pay
