    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Jimmy John's (Champaign, IL).

    Interview

    A couple of phone interviews then you have to pay your way to their offices in Champaign no matter where you live to maybe get the job...A real company would pay to get you there if they really wanted you to work for them. That's cheap and should have caused an alarm to go off in my head about what to expect later.
