Performer | North Las Vegas, NV | Oct 5, 2019
Fun work place
A good place to obtain a few skills. A typical day is preparing food for customers. Also making smoothies for customers. When the shop is slow you either clean the lobby and dishes or either prep food.

Customer Service Representative | Sicklerville, NJ | Dec 10, 2019
Productive and fun workplace with great customer service
Tropical Smoothie cafe provides great customer care and service. They provide the community with good food and drink and a safe space for those who want to relax and enjoy their meal. There are those in the community that have been helped by them in a time of need like local charities. The employees get good compensation for their hard work.

Customer Service Representative | Jacksonville, FL | Aug 20, 2013
Fun easy going atmosphere
The day starts with prepping for breakfast and lunch rush and then talking to customers all day. Learning everything from great customer service skills, to great food techniques. Coworkers and management are very easy going and always willing to help. The hardest part of the job is customer disappointment, and the most enjoyable is the contact with all different types of people.
ProsGreat food, locations, atmosphere
ConsPhysically demanding

okay if you're in hs
TSC was probably the most toxic environment i had worked in. I worker for less than 6 months and had 3 different managers. I used to love going in there but now the energy feels shifted.
Prosdiscounts, flexible schedules
Conspoor management, co-workers etc.

Food Preparation Worker | Albuquerque, NM | Apr 6, 2020
A great place to start working under pressure
Tropical Smoothie is a workplace that requires a substantial amount of flexibility and the ability to change pace rapidly. As a worker, you will have to learn how to balance your tasks effectively and as needed to adapt to your current workflow. At times you may feel overwhelmed, but this will lead to you adopting new work styles that will benefit you throughout your time working in the store, and even after you leave. The management within the store is very open to concerns of individuals, and are willing to work with you as needed.

Fun, exciting environment
Tropical smoothie is great for a second job. Management could be better, but they are good people. Its an easy job in a good place in town as long as you are speedy.

Productive and and very fast paced at times stressful
This was my very first job and I’ve enjoyed it very much I’ve learned a lot of valuable life lessons though my year and a half working here. I’ve learned money managing time managing as well as excellent customer service skills.

good people
made many friends, was treated unfairly at times and I feel as though the pay does not compensate for the work well. management could make a negative environment at times, but a good first job!

Answered May 3, 2020
What would you suggest Tropical Smoothie Cafe management do to prevent others from leaving?
Asked Mar 28, 2017
I would suggest the owners to stop constantly nagging the employees. They watch the cameras all the time and will call you every 10 minutes to tell you how busy they are about to be and things you should/shouldn't be doing. I would advise the owners to get managers and to stop being annoying to the employees. They are always trying to make it seem like you can't do the job and try to intimidate you with the pace of the store. They try to make the job way harder than what it is. They find something wrong with everything you are doing. They are always in the way when you don't need them to be. They should stop having such bizarre expectations. They get mad when the screen is full of food but there is nothing we can do when order keeps coming after order. Overall, I would suggest the owners to take a BIG step back from the company. Majority of the employees leave because of the owners, not the work.
Answered Feb 4, 2020
Take their employees hard work into consideration, make them feel appreciated for their loyalty to stay longer. take their mental health into consideration and don’t make them work 10+ hour shifts with no breaks on top of their normal five day schedule. for some reason, the management at tropical smoothie just assumes that tropical smoothie is all we have, some of us have families, SCHOOL. but they’re ant you to make work your first priority. lame
