Team Member/Cashier (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – June 23, 2017
Good hourly pay rate and flexible hours. The downside is that you may not work all the hours that you are scheduled to and you may get sent home if they are overstaffed. Management is pretty average but you will get to form more than just a professional relationship with most of them.
The hardest part of the job is working while the store is understaffed which can be quite difficult if you are a newbie. However, you will learn quickly and eventually will be able to handle customer rushes with ease. The most enjoyable part of the job is interacting with co- workers which is honestly the reason you'll come to work (not the pay).
Productive workplace with flawed strategy and lacked motivation
DISHWASHER AND LINE COOK (Former Employee) – Fort Collins, CO – June 13, 2017
Although Jason's Deli was a tough place to work as a teen, I did learn a lot about how to operate a restaurant. The average day at work would be busy with customers during lunch and dinner, and then a lot of prep and cleaning in between. On a busy day it was difficult to communicate thoroughly with my coworkers without any bitterness involved. I constantly found myself pointing out others' mistakes and trying to help my coworkers do better, but all I would get in return is backlash and aggression. Jason's Deli is a chain restaurant that follows a lot of 70's New Orleans tradition, such as muffalettas. The food discounts were nice but I feel like the employees there deserved it free (especially with their overpriced food and the ridiculous amount of tips the managers/drivers made).
Cashier (Current Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – June 11, 2017
A typical day at work for me is taking orders, to busing tables, to cleaning spills, really anything that needs to be taken care of I do. I learned how hard working really can be and I appreciate the opportunity I was given to work at this establishment but now I'm looking to expand and add to my skills. The staff is all very friendly and the customers are as well, besides a few bumps here and there I would say I have enjoyed my time there. The hardest part of the job would definitely be finding things to do before a rush or when your area is stocked and taken care of. There is always something to do it's just that it becomes busy work. The most enjoyable part of my day is talking to my regulars, you grow a fondness for people you see all the time, you trade stories, ask how each others lives are going, it's a small part of my bad but none the less one I enjoy.
50% discount, great managers and co-workers, great customers.
Breaks irregular, stretches of inactivity, scheduling issues.
Fun work enviroment when employees come together and make it fun instead of a boring day with attitudes.. A typical day at work includes getting your job don at a timely manner and being productive .Most of our employees get along and hang out after work. The hardest art of the job is picking up others peoples slack when we have no call no shows or people calling out.I enjoy working with my fellow piers and make for the best day possible with them.
The advancement rate is slow and the pay scale does not reflect the work that is completed. Despite this, the company has a phenomenal culture where you are truly given opportunities to grow personally. The growth in general is slow due to it being a privately held company. Christian owners that mostly walk-the-talk.
Through 3 total years of working as a driver, I have had few and far between actual issues to complain about with my coworkers and managers. The hours are what I wanted, the people are friendly and fun, and the management is not afraid to have fun when the time is right.
Typically the only stressful times in a day are the few hours over lunch rush, and that's when things could get frustrating, but everyone works together well to get the job done.
Half price food, good coworkers/management, flexible hours
Typical restaurant fast casual deli concept badly managed. The menu is to large and idea's from within the company, posted to the "idea garden" on the company website are given little consideration. As a manager you are often required to actually fill positions instead of managing. The bonus program is only offered to the GM and 1'st Assistant Manager and due to menu size and company policy, the workload to compensation ratio is far worse than average.

Overall not a bad place to work, depending on various circumstances you would be required to do extra work. It is a step up from a McDonald or traditional fast food restaurant. Enjoyable part would be meeting new people every day and getting the chance to interact with them.
must work 1 full year to start qualifing for any benefits
Line Cook (Former Employee) – Abilene, TX – May 31, 2017
This is a pretty simple job as long as you can remember the builds of food items and are quick with your hands. The problem with this job is that you are not guaranteed any advancement without working yourself into the ground.
Jason's Deli really is a great place to work for, however bad management has left a sour taste in my mouth. They care more about earning a performance bonus than "making every customer happy". It's a sad day when your integrity out weighs that of the person whose name is on the door.
