    Pros

    Jimmy Johns has a great work environment and hours are flexible depending on your availability. You are able to choose whether you drive or ride a bike, and being in arizona is it always great to have the option during the summer considering the heat.

    Cons

    The hours can be brutal if you have a night shift and work until 4:30 am

    Pros

    They are flexible with my hours, and they really appreciate hard work. They care about treating their employees well and resolving problems within the work place.

    Cons

    Mainly it is a lack of benefits. I would rather go to a company where I can get more benefits from working there. I would like to make a little bit more money and maybe get a food discount when I'm off the clock.

    Advice to Management

    They do a great job running things, but they need to communicate better within themselves. I have one manager who has all these stupid rules that no other manager has, and they are really arbitrary. It would be nice if they all were on the same page.

    Pros

    Fun, great people, family like staff, fast paced, generally great customers,

    Cons

    Not a lot of business, low hours, Very strict dress code, can only work so many hours a week, labor cut, hire more people then we need

    Advice to Management

    I would say change the dress code policy as far as hair and facial piercings, and better marketing so we can get more business

    Pros

    Discounted sandwiches. Room to advance. Potential to make good money with tips. They will hire anyone. Real simple interviewing and hiring process.

    Cons

    Constantly cleaning the restaurant. High turnover rate. The late shift would end close to 6am. No calling in sick, you had to find a replacement for your shift.

    Advice to Management

    Pretty good management. Easy to get along with. This is a well put together company. Keep making good sandwiches and bring back the sprouts.
