    I worked at Jason's Deli full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    On salary you get paid weekly, you learn how to manage a large staff and work for a company that cares about its customers.

    Cons

    Extremely long work weeks, no designated time to take a lunch or dinner break. If you sit down to eat almost every time within 5 minutes you have to get up to deal with something. You are underpaid for the amount of work your required to do.

    Advice to Management

    Help your fellow managers, don't just sit in the office all day and do nothing then try to go home early. We all have to work 10-12 hour shifts.

    They always expect you to be flexible but won't be flexible with you.

    Just keep up the great work

    I worked at Jason's Deli full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Jason's deli has a great ownership group! They are focused on servant leadership and it is filtered all the way down to the bus boys.

    Cons

    The focus on the customer sometimes took away from focus on the employees. No breaks, no care concern for them. Some upper management can be two faced.

    Advice to Management

    Don't ever forget to listen to the the people in the trenches. They are the ones that got you to where you are today as a company.

    I have been working at Jason's Deli part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I work with some very good people and they are flexible with your schedule. They really do provide the best quality food.

    Cons

    Sometimes new employees aren't trained properly making it harder on the team. Sometimes you're hours can be cut last minute.

    I worked at Jason's Deli full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Coworkers were friendly, decent tips, decent discount on food (50%)

    Cons

    Minimum wage, way too many managers and not enough workers, expected to be bubbly at all times on minimum wage is an oxymoron, expected to do many jobs at once, UNSAFE SANITATION STANDARDS I often saw employees relabeling expired food as if it was freshly made the same day and managers knew and endorsed this behavior when I asked whether or not we should throw out week old cake they told me to simply change the sticker date.

    Advice to Management

    Less chiefs more Indians its impossible to be expected to work with 4 managers all telling you to drop what you're doing and do what they ask instead, its unacceptable to offer tips to bussers and cashiers and give none of it to back of the house, its also scary to see all of these health code violations encouraged by management in a restraunt that brands itself as healthy eating

    I worked at Jason's Deli part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    free food, easy work, flexible schedule

    Cons

    you won't pay your bills with this job. Over 80% of the full time staff is receiving government benefits of some sort. Basically, it's a dead end job. I would not push too hard for them. They usually want to hire people without self esteem/options.

    Advice to Management

    Compensate everyone fairly. Work harder on keeping your good help, and let the bad help leave. Stop making other people do work that's not their responsibility. That might mean that you check employees out before they leave for the day.
