    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.

    Application Details

    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.

    Associate In Store Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Louis, MO
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Louis, MO
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Jimmy John's in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Awful, advertised at 230 pm, got there after a long bus trip at 2:40pm, closed,no one there. In discussion with employer they stated they interviewed 11 people including a Manager and started at 2:30 and left at 2:40. 11 employee interviews in 10 minutes then gone, come on! They commented that in jobs you must be precise on arrival and anyone arriving AFTER 2:30 would not be seen nor anyone arriving 15 minutes or less in advance of 2:30. All I can say is that this Franchise was incredibly demanding of it's possible new employees. Too bad.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Jimmy John's.

    Interview Details

    I applied on snagajob.com and got a call from a manager telling me to call and set up an interview. I called and set up an interview with the GM for Tuesday. I showed up for the interview and the GM wasn't there, I interviewed with the assistant manager and she told me to call the GM the next morning to set up a 2nd interview. I called back the next day and the GM told me to come in on Thursday for an interview. I came in on Thursday and had to wait 15 min for him to show up. He asked me a couple of questions and did told me that he hadn't looked at my application yet and that they wouldn't be hiring until next month. Very unprofessional and a waste of my time.
