    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.

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

    Interview Details

    Was a very basic interview. Questions about previous job experience, why you want to work with Jimmy John's, and what qualifies and separates you from the rest. They were just opening the store so they needed a full crew in 2008, so I was fortunate enough. The menu was to be remembered and tested within a week of memorizing. Simple and efficient. Satisfying as far as an interview can go.

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Walked in, asked if they were hiring and grabbed an application which i filled out there. The GM happened to be in so after i handed back my application, he looked it over and asked for me to come back in the next day for an interview ( but ive seen them interview on the spot many times if theyre not busy). For the interview: the GM said he looked over my application and everything looked good (because theres really know requirements for working their. they literally hire everyone). He asked me if I had a valid driver license and any visible tattoos or piercings. I dont have any, so I was hired on the spot.

    Interview Questions
    • I was only asked if i have a valid drivers license and if i have any visible tattoos or piercings. Ive seen other managers ask random questions like "what song would be your theme song". They sometimes try to throw in any random weird question just to throw you off because they dont really care what the answer is. If they are willing to interview you, then you are already hired.   Answer Question

    Guerrilla Marketing Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Champaign, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Jimmy John's in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Final Round Interview- They sat me down in a conference room, two people were interviewing me. They used my resume and a previous answer sheet from the initial info-session/group interview to guide themselves when asking questions. I felt they did not fully review my resume before because they were gazing over it and hesitating when asking me questions. Also, it was very comfortable, yet informal. They did not ask standard interview questions and it felt more like a conversation. The entire interview lasted a little over one hour and at the last minute the director walked in and distributed an oral drug test. It was very unexpected and I didn't even know that was allowed during an interview. After reading the company directives, they do not tolerate any drug use and they test their employees.

    Interview Questions
    • They wanted me to ask them one last question about the position. They also asked what animal I would want to be for one day and why. Also, after the interview I was required to write a one page paper with 3 pros and 3 cons about the position.   Answer Question
