THE BAR IS FILLED WITH AN OVERBEARING SMELL OF GINGER AND THERE’S AN ELECTRICITY FLOWING IN THE AIR. ALL YOU CAN HERE IS *BOOM* *BOOM* *POW* FROM THE SPEAKERS AS PEOPLE RACE TO DIG CARROTS INTO A JUICE PRESSER TO GET THE BEST POSSIBLE TIME. SCREAMING, CHEERING AND COUNTER TOP SLAPPING IS HAPPENING ALL AROUND. THE PRESSURE IS ON AND IT ALMOST FEELS LIKE A BOMB IS ABOUT TO GO OFF. “TIME!” AND THE JUICER IS DONE. WOW THAT WAS FAST!
That person (who with that time is now at the top of the list for a spot in one of our beautiful bars here in San Francisco) just made a delicious Go Away Doc. That’s one of our staple juices here at Joe & The Juice. But, let’s rewind back to this morning. It’s 11am on December 1st and we’ve just flown in the rest of the chosen casting team straight from New York City. Upon arriving in San Francisco, we were heavily relying on GPS and the ‘confused’ minds…I mean the combined minds of Murph (our resident Brand Director) and Kevin (our Head of the International Recruitment Team) to get us around. We circled the city, invaded college campuses and took over the Westfield Mall like it was our hunting ground. We scouted over 300 people to attend our BAY AREA BASH! Now that this day has approached us we are preparing for what is going to be a great casting event! What can you expect from this out of the world interview? A CRAZY, WILD AND UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCE! We’re here to find the next Joe! Is that you?
Fast forward to real time, back at the casting event, energy level on 1000 and lungs full of breath just waiting to be used! Kevin is giving one of his famous inspiring speeches to the crowd while we sit back and contain our obvious excitement for the rest of this night. Music starts to blare in the back and immediately we go wild like this was a spring break 1992 MTV commercial. You remember those right, where they show all the college students just going crazy at the beach bar and having the time of their life. That was us, except 10 times crazier! Here we go! The casting begins, the energy is right and the team is inspired by the prospects dancing and juicing alongside of us fighting for a spot in our crazy family! There is absolutely no other experience like this! What kind of job expects you to jump around and have a good time with no prior qualifications expected except to be passionate? NONE! And that’s why we pride ourselves on these castings, because we give the opportunity to young people to experience something that is catered to them. Something other than applying on a website and hoping that an employer calls them back. We want to give the right people the opportunity to experience happiness at their potential place of work. That’s what our castings are about.
As the night ends we as Joe & The Juice employees (or what we normally refer to ourselves as, “joes”) are ecstatic at the success of our casting here in San Francisco. With no support and with this community having no idea who we are, we showed a group of people that they matter. That we don’t see our ‘employees’ as just employees. We see them as young, motivated, driven individuals. People with dreams, goals and a cool vibe to go along with their rocking style.
If you missed this casting don’t worry! When January comes around we’ll be back and it’s going to be a lot crazier than ever as both of our juice bars will be open for you to live out the best experience ever. Think you’ve got potential to be the next juicer? Check us out at joejuice.com and apply asap! We love to hear from and see new faces! Until next time! Cheers!
