    I almost quit, after the first week... I stayed because the GM was a stand-up dude.

    I have been working at Jimmy John's part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Military-like attention to detail, higher-class standards like no tattoos, fun and goes by fast during busy lunch rush.

    Cons

    Extremely low pay, zero employee benefits, high turnover rate just like every other fast food chain. Sometimes no tips and no mileage reimbursement. This is a love hate relationship. I love the idea, but I hate being used in order to fulfill one person's dream. Secretive company with zero communication from corporate to staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be the change you want to see in the world. AKA treat human labor better. We are not robots and with us, especially drivers and their vehicles, you'd be nothing!
