    Flexible, decent pay. Great side job for students, get to see a lot of people.

    Drinks for delivery should be in 20 ounce bottles not cups. pick up orders shouldn't be allowed after 3pm.

    I worked at Jimmy John's (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of fun people to work with, customers were generally good people (but there's ALWAYS bad seeds), and the environment was pretty chill

    Always giving employees the run-around

    Communication


  6. General Manager - Full Time

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Ability to schedule shifts, good for someone who always wants to be on their feet in a busy busy environment. Relying on other stores from your owners has a family feeling.

    Cons

    Early morning and long shifts, sometimes it is very busy and sometimes it will be dead, need to really focus on the customer review.

    Advice to Management

    Good management, sometimes unavailable for assistance.

    Little to no micromanagement. Got to ride my bike all day and payed for it. Fun.

    Same as any tip based employment.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. They on the front lines.

    I worked at Jimmy John's part-time

    Pros

    Fun environment, loved the people I worked with

    Cons

    Hours capped at 30 per week, raises are tiny and barely above minimum wage.

    Let people who want to work more have more hours!

    Pros

    Great atmosphere. Friendly people. Teaches valuable team work skills. Everyone has to be on the same page for everything to run smoothly. Upper management working alongside means a closer rapport.

    Cons

    Freaky fast means freaky fast. Everything must be done very quick which might not be for everyone. Fast food service means you might not be dealing with the best costumers.

    I worked at Jimmy John's (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The speed at which the company operates is unparalleled. If you want to work somewhere with great efficiency then look no further.

    Cons

    The pay is only average and they don't provide accident coverage for your car. Overall not the best bet to work at if you can't cover the cost of losing a car with your pay.

    Cons

    Poor clarity of rules, no tips for in-shop, no breaks.
