    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Jimmy John's.

    Interview Details

    Asked when I could start and if I've ever worked in the food industry before. Needed to get a food handlers license from the state of Texas (which could be done online at multiple sites). The manager was very nice, but the GM was not working that day. My good friend had been a delivery driver for about 4 months when I asked if she could help me get a position.

    Interview Details

    I found an ad on craigslist and it said that they were looking for workers for a new location. so I sent a email to the lady with my name and number and experience. she called me a few days later to set up a interview. the interview was very easy seeing as though i am HORRIBLE at being interviewed. she asked me a few questions and i just smiled a lot and tried to answer them the best i could with out tripping over my words. after like 5 or 6 questions went to office and came out with a schedule and added me on it!!! so i start working in 10 days and i'm excited everyone seems so happy and nice. cool, positive environment. my advice, go in there happy with a good attitude. most importantly SMILE and the job is yours :)

    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Jimmy John's.

    Interview Details

    Asked me my school schedule and found out what hours I could work including one closing shift for the thursday, friday, saturday late night shifts. Tested me on the menu from the ingredients to the meats. We just sat in the back room and talked. It was very easy. Its a entry level job so they don't really care as long as you show up to work on time and know the menu

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Jimmy John's.

    Interview Details

    Walked in and dropped off an application, was greeted by a friendly young manager. He asked me if I'd like an interview now. I said yes, of course! It was incredibly straightforward, the only real question he had beyond scheduling was "What kind of animal would you be if you could?"

    In-shop Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tucson, AZ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tucson, AZ
    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Jimmy John's in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I walked in and grabbed an application. Then, I asked to speak to the manager. When he came up to me, I asked if Jimmy Johns was hiring. He told me that they were mostly looking for drivers (he asked if I had a vehicle which I don't.) But to apply anyway. I left and came back a few days later with my application and resume attached. I handed it to the manager, he said he would look it over, and I left. I was walking around applying at other places, and I pass by Jimmy John's again only five minutes later, and the manager comes outside and tells me he would like to hire me but that I need to take a menu test. I take home the sandwich list, and when I came back later that week, I took that dreaded menu test. I sat facing away from any menu and listed every sandwich with every ingredient in order and their name and numbers. Fortunately, I only missed one ingredient, and I started working right away. No real interview other than when you can work and stuff like that.
    Note: I had to take a sandwich test again after a month or so of working there because I forgot a lot of stuff when I was on the line at first. Just saying, it could happen.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Jimmy John's.

    Interview Details

    There was only one interview. i got the interview after bringing in a paper application. The interview was a one-on-one with the store manager, in person at the store. The questions asked were very typical, nothing scary or out of the ordinary. I gave him my availability and was hired on the spot. I did have to do a sandwich test a few days later to show that I knew what the sandwiches were.
