    Best Part Time Job I've Ever Had

    Former Employee - Jimmy John's Deliver Driver in Shelby Township, MI

    I worked at Jimmy John's part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    -Extremely flexible hours
    -Good tips
    -Delivery drivers make about $15-$25/hr with tips
    -Good atmosphere
    -Fun managers

    Cons

    -Wear and tear on your car
    -People who don't tip (especially when you're delivering in bad weather)
    -Kinda loud
    -Some lazy employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Teach new people how to answer phones, take orders, and make orders before you just throw them to the wolves. People get hired and are just expected to know how to do everything immediately. Leads to lots of screw ups. Screwed up delivery orders cost drivers gas money.

    I have been working at Jimmy John's full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    As always you get a good mix of people that you work with. The product you are selling is speed, not sandwiches. They are good sandwiches but really the focus is on speed so there isn't a lot of variety in product. PIC pay is good, the managers work like 50-60 hours a week and dont get paid much unless they have a big bonus check. Not a greay place to work, fast paced and fun environment.

    Cons

    Fast food=Crappy pay, little to no job prestige, they should hire more employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your managers a little bit better. Also, give more employee discounts! It's pathetic, everything is full price to employees except for a free sandwich if you work over 7 hours a shift.
