    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Jimmy John's.

    Interview

    Consisted of being asked my work schedule and any previous experience working in the food industry. When I was hired, the atmosphere was not strict but not laid back either. Very uptight about the technique of wrapping the sandwiches.
