I have been working at Jimmy John's part-time for more than 3 yearsPros
The job has flexible day and night hours, perfect for high school and college students. Employees can quickly advance to PIC (person in charge) and gain valuable management experience. You can make decent tips as a delivery driver and the delivery zone is small so you do not waste as much gas as pizza delivery drivers. If you advance to a certified manager you can make salary and receive bonuses.Cons
Pay is not great, unless you are a delivery driver.
Corporate visits a lot and there are many strict franchise rules, especially dress code.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Consistency: Franchise is all about consistency. Follow Jimmy Johns specific paperwork and you'll do fine.RecommendsPositive OutlookDisapproves of CEO

- 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.Interview QuestionsNegotiation DetailsNo negotiations, and I make $8/hour, slightly over current minimum wage.Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceEasy Interview
