    Pros

    Awesome food on the cheap. Flexible hours.

    Cons

    No lunches or breaks. Ever.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Peter Cancro is a very generous man. There are lots of charity events and promotions to make the world a better place. However, working in the store can be a bit tedious at times. No lunches or breaks can be exhausting especially on 10 hour shifts. Overall if you like working in food you'll enjoy this fast paced environment. Very detail orientated, so knowing how everything is to the EXACT is a must. Pay raises are non existent unless you are able to get a GM position

    I worked at Jersey Mike's full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Strong standards for team members and customers to rely on
    -Education in valuable kitchen areas
    -Great food!

    Cons

    -Franchised. So the owners are not held to a standard of what they should be paying their employees. Some owners will pay their employees at levels that are sufficient and NOT insulting. Some do not and put MANAGER responsibilities upon supervisors who are being paid $0.50 above minimum wage. (California)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Having the opportunity to meet the CEO, Peter Cancro on two occasions, I had the chance to really see how stores are run from coast to coast. I also had an amazing manager who taught me everything there was to know about JM's and I value everything I was taught by him. Jm's is a great company overall. My ONLY suggestion is for CORP. to be equally focused on the structures of each team (FRANCHISE) as opposed to strict cleaning standards that are not even followed in some of your BUSIEST SoCal stores.

    Pros

    I worked here for a summer job and enjoyed every minute of it. The owners of the Vernon Hills store were accommodating and easy to talk to. Everyone at Jersey Mike's is looking for a good time! Plus, you get a free sandwich every time you work!

    Cons

    Pay was minimum wage- but wouldn't expect anything more for a summer job.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere. I enjoyed working alongside my co-workers and the regulars were great. Really enjoyed the flexibility of my schedule.

    Cons

    Not alot of room for advancement. Grassrooting all the time can get a bit old.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A mandatory gas stipend should be included in the pay because the bulk of the grassrooting is done in your own vehicle.

    Pros

    You get a fifty percent discount on the sandwiches, which are pretty good, and free drinks depending on where you work. When you include tips, the pay's not too bad either.

    Cons

    It's hit or miss with the management. Sometimes they're fun to work with or they can be your worst nightmare.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please stay laid back.

    I worked at Jersey Mike's full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    It was cool having the opportunity to work at the busiest and most successful location of the 1000 here in the U.S. Moreover, the people I rang up were typically pretty cool.

    Cons

    The benefits were only 25% a sandwich, so an hour or two of your work is going to meals every full day. Also, the owner called me in all the time at a minute's notice. Lastly, the owner had a problem with cussing at his employees.
