    I have been working at Jimmy John's full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Drivers make good money and coworkers are awesome to work with. It's not a stressful job unless you get into management. Schedules are flexible and its an easy way to earn some extra cash.

    Cons

    Corporate can be a little extreme with their rules, but that's in every chain. If you're not making orders, you'll be cleaning all parts of the store

    I have been working at Jimmy John's part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    You have to work fast, but you are rewarded because fast orders generally equal better tips. Compensation is heavily tip-based. $8.25 while in-shop, $5.75 wage while driving, and you will be driving for a good portion of your shift. Management was helpful and flexible.

    Cons

    You will deal with rude customers and less-than-cooperative coworkers, but those are standard issues in a job like this. Compensation is low, but that's to be expected with the extremely low minimum wage law for tipped workers and low regular minimum wage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Add some capabilities for advancement for drivers or in-shop workers to increase retention! Encourage people to stick around.

    Pros

    Co-Workers like to have a good time while working. Hard working and fun environment. Great pay for bicycle delivery for the amount of hours an employee can work.

    Cons

    Don't remain professional all the time. Can get carried away. Aggressive management. Very impatient with new hires. Management is pretty selective on who they like. If you are a hard worker, but aren't "friends" with management, then it may be difficult for you to advance, or get shifts you want.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A chest bump here and there wouldn't hurt...

    Pros

    Really nice way to earn some money while going to school.
    Flexible hours. It was very easy to get time off for classes and exams.

    Cons

    Your car is bound to have to get some work done, so some of your money is going to go to gas and repairs.
    The company plays songs through "Jimmy Tunes" which is a play list of the same 'hit' songs over and over.

    Pros

    Tips supplement hourly income nicely, providing a very comfortable cushion for my back end. Easy as pie. Culture is laid back. Great experiences.

    Cons

    Job is pretty monotonous, not much room for growth if interested in management, must be vigilante at all times when on the road, can be very stressful. This job definitely isn't for everyone.
