    Pros

    Jimmy John has an amazing culture and has an amazing system that holds up to the standards. They offer management training in Champaign keeping management up to date.

    Cons

    Depending on the transition of AM to PM management and communication, some days could lead close to 12 hour shifts.

    Advice to Management

    Manage with respect. As a Manager, with respect, you dont have to fight your employees to do the work. I had no problem getting down and dirty for the DBL's

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere
    Requires you to act quickly, think on your feet
    Easy tasks
    Strict on cleanliness - great for everybody!

    Cons

    Some Corporate rules are ridiculous (only 1 piercing per ear, black/white/grey socks over ankles)
    Not much reimbursement for gas (deliveries)
    My franchise took away our employee discounts

    Advice to Management

    Keep rockin' and rollin', this place is super-fun and it was an experience I will never forget as my first job!

    Pros

    Managers are great at their job, helpful and always willing to work with you (flexible schedule), they never look down on you and everyone is treated equally. Co-workers are fun, team work at its finest, gossip is minimal which is rare. If you leave on a good note and decide to come back they usually can. Cleanest work environment ever!

    Cons

    For some stores delivery drivers are not reimbursed for gas mileage.
    Pay could be better. Better raises could be given when earned.
    They do not offer any kind of benefits (health care/401k) unless you have a management position

    Advice to Management

    none. These stores are managed very well and very organized.

    Pros

    As a driver, you spend most of your time in your car and can just enjoy driving around listening to music while bringing subs to people. It can get a little stressful when the phones start blowing up every now and then, but it's a good job. I love working here.

    Cons

    If you need a shift picked up, there tend to be a lot of people who ignore your texts or calls and that can make things pretty difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Reimburse your drivers for the miles they drive.

    Pros

    Clean, fast paced, friendly. The staff seemed very nice and i talked to the manager as well and he was very cool. Food is awesome as well, I'm a vegetarian so i only can order those so sorry but i can't speak for the meat eaters.

    Cons

    Only thing i can think if is that i heard there are no sick days for the employees. So you don't know if someone sick is making your sub.
