    Cashier, Sandwich Maker Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Jimmy John's.

    Interview Details

    I had a phone interview first where the manager explained what I would need to do for the in person interview. The management wanted me to be able to rewrite out the entire menu word for word from memory. Not the random details but the names, ingredients, and prices of every sandwich they sold. I have a very good memory, so I did fine and got it just about perfect, but this might have proved very challenging to some. Other than this, they just asked a few general questions to get my background and then wanted to know more about my availability. Overall it was a relatively simple process, though it took a bit of work.

    Interview Details

    I was originally going for a chipotle job interview but I walked into the wrong shop accidently. But since I didn't realize it, I was still very confident and ended up getting offered a job on the spot. But I have another interview so I'm gonna see how that goes. But they give you a packet to fill out and a sandwich test study sheet to study over.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Jimmy John's in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    There was an info-session round and an individual interview. Info round was very informal and on-site at their Champaign offices, lunch and tour of office was given. You fill out a ten question survey with basic questions like your strengths and weaknesses, why Jimmy John's etc. Second round interview is very easy as well. Basically just use your resume to ask questions about your experience, etc. At the end they drug test you, so be prepared. Jimmy John's has a strict drug-free policy. Also they ask you to write a one page summary on 3 pros and 3 cons of the Guerrilla Marketing position, followed up by a background test. Process takes about 2 weeks.

    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.

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Jimmy John's in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    The hiring and interview process was pretty straight forward. The interview questions were nothing surprising or difficult. I had previous experience as a delivery driver, and they were in need, so after asking a few basic questions, I was informed about working there. I was pretty much hired on the spot.
