    Pros

    If you are just starting your "work life" Jason's deli would be a great first job. They have incredible hands on management and they want you to succeed. It is a great stepping stone into the career world and a great learning experience.

    Cons

    Challenges that I ran into were clash of employees. Jason's Deli has a family environment and all employees were very close, with closeness come conflict.

    Pros

    Wonderful product, fun place to work, employees treated well. Discounts or free meals for employees! Worked there for two years, really enjoyed it.

    Cons

    Come home smelling like food, working on the salad bar not great. Can be difficult to get a pay raise. You have to buy non slip shoes.

    Overall good experience and chances for promotion; frequent internal turnover of management may be an issue for some

    I worked at Jason's Deli part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people are diverse and like having fun on the job. There's a relaxed atmosphere and culture unless there's a rush (in the Midtown store where I worked, the only real rushes were for morning business catering or weekend Piedmont Park events). There was great opportunity for upward mobility: drivers, line workers, etc. could easily become managers after a couple of years, and I saw multiple cases where fellow drivers were promoted to management positions, and other employees who worked up to upper management. There was a constant buzz of promotion. A great place to work for college students (flexible scheduling).

    Cons

    Management stresses low labor costs so being short-staffed is a common occurrence. Due to common promotions and frequent shifting of managers from one store to another, workflow in the store was disrupted at times. Management can drastically influence pay despite long-standing agreements between employees and management.

    Good people; good culture; hard work is recognized and rewarded

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA

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

    Pros

    Very positive atmosphere and working environment
    Hard work, dedication, and job excellence are noticed and rewarded
    Decent schedules (if a manager is having to work 60 hours a week, as mentioned in a previous review, something has gone terribly wrong-- I never saw that in my 4 years with the company)

    Cons

    Overall experience varies tremendously from one location to another
    Corporate's solution to the above issue was to implement a lot of asinine procedural changes that only serve to needlessly complicate every job, and still don't fix the issues

    Pros

    Drivers get amazing tips, managers are generally friendly and understanding, employees are easy to get along with. The store I worked at did not have high turnover, a stable roster of employees makes for a more predictable weekly schedule.

    Cons

    Management changed in October 2013 at my store, corporate decided to turn our store into an MIT store, meaning we constantly get new managers in training of varying quality, which, after completing training, were sent off to a different store. As an employee it got more difficult as my job now included training the new managers in every restaurant position in a short amount of time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I saw several of my good friends get terminated for seemingly no good reason, which brought down morale among the rest of the working crew, openness is key.
