Ive worked for two jersey mikes locations. The first location wasnt bad. Owner was friendly and understanding with employees and home life. Also hourly wages were good. The other location... The owner ignored harrassment in the work place multiple times. Repeatedly lied or ignored employees concerns. Played favorites. There were no rules and it was a mess.
No free lunch. Childish rude employees, owner doesn't care at all!

This job gave me the opportunity to learn some managerial experience while being in a wonderful customer service environment.This experience I can now take with me to other jobs and be useful if I ever find myself offered another management job. I appreciate the opportunity I received by being not only a friendly face for our customers but guaranteeing them the best service I could possibly provide.

The management isn't great some stores are better than others but the management doesnt seem to genuinely care about their job.the "teamwork" tends to be 2 or 3 people doing most of the heavy lifting and most employees don't care enough about the job.you have to attend about 200 people per day its a lot of social interaction and you're expected to banter with the customer a lot of whom are rude or disrespectful.the food is expensive and customers will complain about every possible thing.it pays well but they dont give a lot of hours unless you are shift lead or higher.there are always employees calling out sick or not showing up at all and many new hires don't last more than a couple of days most places tend to be understaffed and it creates a stressful situation for the employees who do show up.overall a stressful enviroment but if fast paced is your thing then you'll do well here.
A lot of fun people to work with and the management team is new so its good. Employees learn fast so it makes the job easier. I have learned to manage the store while he management team isn’t there so it has given me a lot of expiernce in that area.
Discounts of food and merchandise.
No breaks, long hours, and not a lot of employees to cover shifts if an emergency comes up.
A place you think you will go far with but you really won't
Shift Leader (Former Employee) – Tukwila, WA – August 10, 2018
When I first started this job, I loved it. I thought it was amazing and I seriously considered trying to go farther with the company. Unfortunately the more I worked there the more I realized that I was completely wrong. The higher ups would never come around and when they did they never focused on the good things we have done or how much progress we have made, their sole focus is to find any little thing they can find that's wrong and make sure you know about it. I spent a lot of time trying to get to a higher place in the company. I worked my butt off to become a shift lead, and expressed interest multiple times that I wanted to go farther. Every time they said they would have the manager start training me and they would get me on the track to become an assistant manager and eventually a manager. They never started that process and I later found out through a manager they had told that they had no intentions of moving me up higher, and that they were lying to me. One of the worst parts about all this is that I worked my butt off for years and didn't get a single raise or glimpse of appreciation from any one of the higher ups. I would not recommend working for this company.
free sandwiches if you're a shift lead or higher
You think you have a chance to move up higher but you most likely won't go anywhere, They have no incentives to stay, They won't give you raises, people come and go so quickly its hard to have any sort of good schedule for you at all
Good entry-level pay, honest & high-quality company

I worked at Jersey Mike's subs as my first job for over 2 years from May 2015 to August 2017. It was a really fun first job despite the tough work it sometimes required. You make minimum wage plus tips (tips vary depending on location; my location had stricter management but this ultimately translated to a cleaner/more friendly location and better tips! almost $3 an hour!). I had a few coworkers I loved and made close friends with while some of my other coworkers were simply awful; it's come to be expected in any food-service entry-level job! The food is delicious and high-quality. The work is sometimes nonstop and dirty and there are sometimes long shifts and the management was definitely strict and nit-picky, but it was a great first job to have!
Great place to work if you want to learn about customer service
Cashier/Cook/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – August 8, 2018
Typical day at work consists of a fast passed environment where everyone does everything. You are not fixed on one position. I learned great multitasking skills and conflict solution skills. Hardest part of the job is working in close quarters of one another while being quick and accurate. If you or someone messes up once it will throw everyone off.
Jersey Mike's for me had been a wonderful first job! Specifically referring to the store I work at, off of hwy 55 and jenks rd. I love my fellow coworkers and couldn't ask for a better bunch of people to spend almost every day with. I've grown so much since working their as a person and as an employee.

Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Gainesville, VA – August 5, 2018
Jersey Mikes allows employees to have a very flexible schedule with school/ other activities. The work environment was comfortable and I believe it’s a very good job for young adults in high school and college.
Typical day at go in maybe around 3 pm .. lays bread for the night ..begin working on the cleaning list and assisting customers..I’ve learn that it does matter what type of situation it is always handle it with kind and care ..hardest part was actually doing calculations to count the drawer
Assistant General Manager (Former Employee) – Gainesville, FL – August 1, 2018
Jersey mikes is a positive, productive work place. Very customer oriented. Fairly fast paced environment, but easy to understand and follow along. Management was very willing to work with schedules. Management also cared for employees a lot. I was able to learn many valuable lessons to help with my future endeavors.
