In-Shop Sandwich Maker (Former Employee) – Leesburg, VA – May 5, 2017
Jimmy Johns was my first job in high school and it taught me a lot about attention to detail and being on time. Although I did not work there long due to some complications, I do not regret working there.

Delivery Driver (Former Employee) – Portage, MI – October 19, 2017
Working at Jimmy Johns probably isn't going to be any different from working at any other fast food joint, especially for drivers. You are expected to learn everything about Jimmy John's, which isn't really all that unfair, but they give you about 4 hours worth of training and expect you to be perfect at the job after that.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Newport News, VA – October 19, 2017
A typical day at work included daily cleaning and sandwich making. At this job I learned register skills and better ways of dealing with customers. Management could be way more professional. The hardest part about the job was learning to make the sandwiches at such fast pace but after the first couple times it got easier. The best part about the job was being able to have fun on the job with other coworkers. Always a positive vibe with everybody.
Shift Manager (Former Employee) – Windsor, CO – October 17, 2017
The management team made me and most other team members feel like nothing more than a machine paid to accomplish a task with no concern for our personal lives and no consideration how we feel about our work lives.
If you work guaranteed 8 hours you get a meal on the house
Distant lack of concern or consideration for team, constantly ridiculed for not being perfect
Delivery Driver (Former Employee) – Fresno, CA – October 17, 2017
Working at Jimmy Johns is a standard summer type job. Delivery driver is probably the best position. You're on your own a lot of the time delivering sandwiches so you can listen to music and you also get tips so you tend to make more money. Evenings can be pretty slow.
Cashier and Food Preparation (Former Employee) – Silver Spring, MD – October 17, 2017
I enjoyed working here, it was somewhat slow-paced because it was a new store. (It is very busy now). Responsibilities included cashier work, food preparation and keeping the store clean and ordering supplies.
Delivery Driver (Former Employee) – Uniontown, PA – October 17, 2017
A typical day at Jimmy Johns was fast paced and fun to work at. I learned to make deliveries within a 19 min time frame. I also learned to take over the phone and in shop orders. Cleaned shop and greeted customers.
Assistant General Manager (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX – October 17, 2017
My typical day at jimmy johns involves handling cash register/ money, controlling COGS and Labor percentage, taking stock of inventory in the house, placing and receiving truck orders for weekly use. Iv learned how to schedule employees based on availability. In management my sense of urgency has been steady and implementing good work ethic to new hires, and old. Hardest part of the job isn't any one thing in general and overall it isn't that hard but it would have to be being able to catch any curve ball thrown at you in the field, aka job atmosphere, which i had down because after im in the groove and atmosphere of the work place, im precise with me work!
CASHIER (Former Employee) – Carson City, NV – October 16, 2017
Jimmy johns is a fast paced job. Hours are flexible and they let you choose your schedule ( days ) you can and cant work online. Also discount on your lunch if you are working all day and have a 2 hour break in between
Cashier/Sandwich Maker (Former Employee) – Lake Forest, CA – October 16, 2017
I liked the fact that the shifts were always consistent and mostly always during the day. The shifts averaged 3 hours monday-friday. weekdays were much busier than weekends. Management was on top of things and it was a competitive work place
Sub Maker (Former Employee) – Hialeah, FL – October 15, 2017
A typical day at work included making many sandwiches, not delivering many sandwiches and dealing with difficult workers. Management failed to hire very dependable workers, as well as failing to teach new managers exactly how to motivate employees.
Inshopper (Current Employee) – Greenville, SC – October 15, 2017
They hire just about anyone which includes many incompetent people who can not complete a simple task. If you are a quality employee than you will basically be carrying the whole store on your back while everyone else stands around struggling to put ice into a cup.
Team Member (Current Employee) – Biloxi, MS 39531 – October 14, 2017
I loved working at Jimmy John's. The workload is similar to other fast food chains, but you deal with significantly less grease or oil of any kind, and consequently, there's far less work required for clean-up and you don't go home reeking of grease, either. Lunch rushes are fast-paced and can be stressful under certain circumstances, but with good managers, they're fun and go by quickly. The people I've met working at Jimmy John's cover a vast array of personality types, backgrounds, and cultures. I've learned a great deal about people and the world we live in from my co-workers. I'd say they are both the hardest and most enjoyable parts of the job. Every company has its complainers, and this is one of the lightest workloads I've ever experienced from a job, so our token complainers become extra tiresome. However, they're in the minority of the overall attitudes of employees at Jimmy John's, and it's everyone else who makes the job exceptional.
Fast paced work environment with occasional stress.
First Assistant Manager (Current Employee) – Lexington, KY – October 13, 2017

Learning leadership skills and management techniques
