    I have been working at Jimmy John's full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great structure in place to ensure fairness to employees and amazing customer service. Jimmy John's processes are so well defined it's difficult not to be good at the job. As a delivery driver, you won't have to take a deliveries very far, ensuring faster turnover on tips. In-shops focus on making freaky fast sandwiches and cleaning, all of which is broken down fairly among the employees.

    Cons

    There are not a lot of benefits for employees below the management level, and in general most employees will not make much above minimum wage.

    Advice to Management

    For management, take the time to teach your entire team how to do almost everything as a team. Teamwork is key to keeping the store running smooth and giving customers an amazing experience every time they order a sub.
