Very Nice environment Just hard to gain more hours
Cashier, Work (Former Employee) – Gaithersburg, MD – May 23, 2016
I like the other employees and managers that work there however when i became more available and asked to receive more hours, they would not give me any and they were very inflexible with the schedule.
It's a fun place with great people, managment and over all a cozy atmosphere.
Associate , cashier (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – February 24, 2017
This was my very first job so I don't have much to compare it to but it's definitely a fun one. Depending on the location it may get really busy during the lunch hour so you need to be prepared but other than that its a pretty steady paced job.
Crew member (Former Employee) – Pasadena, CA – February 22, 2017
I worked five days a week. Of course I earned those five days a week, you have to work hard for hours you have to deserve it. I was usually a 9:00 a.m -3:00 p.m shift. The 9 a.m comes in and helps the opener. My job was to prep all the meat and cheeses. Prep lettuce and onions. Put nobs on the soda machine, start the sweet tea maker, set up the patio tables and chairs, display the front line, start making bacon, wipe down the tables, and count the tip jar. The biggest thing I learned working at this job was to stay calm and work efficiently under pressure. Another big thing, how to handle a very extremely difficult customer. They are out there... Management was good. Not much to really say there but it was good. The culture was business. The location of my store was right in the middle of a bunch of buildings. People that work in offices, a lot of business people. It was also very family friendly. Hardest part of the job was the catering orders. We would get last minute catering orders and the only time they were really hard, was when it was ordered in the middle of a lunch rush. The worst! The most enjoyable part was creating relationships with our customers. I made friends with a lot of customers. They became our regulars because of it.

Management is absent until they need someone to blame for something. coworkers are usually cool to work with and customers are great. Lots of regulars who you get to know well and hopefully network away to a better job with.
accused of taking money because manager can't count
Crew Member (Current Employee) – Rocky Mount, NC – February 20, 2017
A job that takes long hours and patients. A great environment to work in. I love the regular customers that stop by. some days we pull doubles but that is the best way to achieve your goal. It's a fair and honest job.
General Manager (Former Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – February 18, 2017
Jersey Mikes tell this day means so much to me. This place raised me and taught me everything i know. The owner of this company were the best. They taught us to be owners. The ups and downs of the business. The hardest part of the job was just losing all my good people to other stores and them getting promotions. The most enjoyable part of the job was the people.
great corporate company just depends on the franchise.
General Manager (Current Employee) – Rancho Cucamonga, CA – February 13, 2017
good company with good opportunity only if your in with your right people. JM FOODS INCS franchise will only act like they care about you if it benefits they're needs. Do not get hurt or you will be demoted due to not being able to to perform all duties of a manager.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Shiloh, IL – February 12, 2017
I have been working at Jersey Mike's for over 2 years and there are plenty reasons why i stay. First, my co-workers are excellent people who have helped me with anything whenever i needed help on work related tasks. Second, the culture and atmosphere of Jersey Mike's is close to what i imagine the workplace should be: The associates help customers as best as they can with 110% effort, clean the store without having to be told too, friendly and helpful to other employees, and treat each other with respect. Finally, the management and owner treat and pay the employees very well for the jobs we are doing. There are several other reasons to work at Jersey Mike's but the three listed above are the most basic and important reasons.
Discount or free subs, great hours, great pay, friendly staff
Shift Leader (Former Employee) – Lake in the Hills, IL – February 12, 2017
I enjoyed my time at this store. was transferred and promoted to a different location after becoming a shift leader. Enjoyed the atmosphere here and made a lot of friends. Learned how to step up and run closing shifts. Become a leader and coach new employees.
