Jersey Mike's Team Member (Former Employee) – Bakersfield, CA – February 18, 2019
I enjoyed the work because it was quick paced and changed often. One thing I didn't like was they kept all employees except managers employed part time so they didn't have to give benefits or pay more. Some trainers who worked there trained employees inconsistently.

This was the worst job experience I've had with a managerment. The manager here was unprofessional, childish, unappreciative and lacked training her employer. I liked the customers the job itself and some of the co workers who didn't have their lips on the managers behind to get ahead. Overall i made the best of it, but it wasnt a job that i loved to walk in each day.

Management could not care less about employees.When minimum wage was 9.25 we got paid 8.75 an hour. I hope no one ever considers working there. turnover rate is so high for a reason. only ONE person has been there more than a few months but is considering leaving.there have been 4 managers in just a few months one walked out and quit 2 were fired. Now a new one is there who has no experience. This place is so ridiculous and overpriced. GO TO FIREHOUSE YALL. Jersey Mikes aint it

Really depends on your supervisor or general manager. My GM is moody, has favorites, doesn't schedule you the right times or schedules you off when you can't work. Everything was fine at first, but the longer you work there, the more you realize it's not worth it. Supervisor won't do much for you even if you tell them about the attitude of the GM. You have to work a whole year with an average of 30 hours a week to get any benefits. High turnover rate so you're always understaffed. Normally get along with the rest of the crew
Half off lunches, coworkers are cool, flexible schedule
Basically no benefits, poor management, no guaranteed hours

I had worked at Jersey Mike's for a short time and the atmosphere was friendly. I really liked my coworkers and the store manager was typically upbeat, really nice and a little odd at times. The biggest downfall was when the owner or higher management came in. They micromanaganed, made everyone really nervous, barked orders, clearly played favorites with certain coworkers and the owner would call the female employees names like "sweetie" which made me feel really uncomfortable.
Overall my experience was ok. Manager could have been more organized and more consistent with schedules, the owners could have micromanaged less, and I was not a fan of the drama from select employees.
Shift Leader (Former Employee) – Columbus, GA – February 9, 2019
Begged for days off as I was a full time college student, threatened to quit in order to receive two days off every week. Not proper training for slicing meat, actually sliced a piece of my finger off and owner/manager blamed and told me I knew what I was doing as if I did it on purpose. Owner really unappreciated their staff. Worked us to death everyday. Mind you I was PT working 40 hrs a week. Would not give me my second raise because no one would train me properly on how to bake the break. We were yelled at every night because standards of cleaning change when owner stepped out and wife stepped in. No stability at all. Owner can be very rude at times. Nice at first though.

Jersey mikes is an incredible place to work. I had to leave due to being part time, being a small business they prioritize full time employees but that's understandable. There was nothing bad about working there. The managers and owner were incredible and I will cherish them forever. Jersey Mikes culture is unlike no other and I sincerely recommend working there.
Team Member (Current Employee) – Marysville, WA – February 4, 2019
It was a little rough working here when I first started. The store had just opened and we were going through managers every few weeks. However my current and longest lasting management has been very good and I would recommend working there.
I've been working for the company since 2015. I learned everything so fast and I felt comfortable with my work ethic. I learned every station in 2 months time. Hands down I'VE ALWAYS LOVED WORKING HERE. I started as a team member at $8.25 then worked my way up never ever gave up even though things get stressful. Now I'm an assistant manager making good $ getting bonuses and training new people! This is yet by the best job I've ever had! And did I mention I love it!
