Oppurtunistic environment and laid-back not too much customers
Jimmy Johns (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – September 19, 2018
A typical day at work consists of your regulars coming in on lunch break and a lunch rush from about 12 - 2pm and a rush. I've learned most importantly is that the more you rush the more likely you make a mistake even when the pressure is on stay cool and collected at all times. The management was convenient because it was just about 2 managers working at once so if we had any issues we always had someone acknowledge us on the right way. The hardest part may have been memorizing the menu. The most enjoyable was the free food we earn at the end of the day. The culture was relaxing not too much noise they kept the area pretty clean.
Food quality is excellent. Focus on cleanliness is great because the restaurant is always clean. Liked working at JJ at first but then a new owner and manager came in. Didn't like the new manager and the way she did not respect men. She also liked to play favorites. Other than that, JJ is a great place to work. Lots of opportunities to make good money and if you are truly energetic and committed - could go places!
Sandwich Artist/Delivery Driver (Former Employee) – Mount Pleasant, MI – September 19, 2018
Working at the Jimmy John's on Mission St. in Mount Pleasant, Michigan was one of the greatest overall experiences of my life. The staff was extremely welcoming when I started and I ended up staying for three school years until I graduated in May 2018. Very helpful and caring individuals. Flexible hours and understanding of the busy school schedule.
Discounted food, flexible hours, fun staff, very engaging.
Can get very busy at times, have to work busy days like football games, St. Patty's Day, Halloween, etc.
I was the bread starter that essentially cut and mayo the bread, dress the sandwich with vegetables then pass the sandwich to the next person on the line. I sliced meats and dealt with catering orders. I went on deliveries and catering events. The job was easy but a fast pace learning experience.
seasonal hours due to the location being on a college campus
Cashier (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – September 18, 2018
I liked my job for a short amount of time until I was washing all of the dishes everyday instead of being on the register. Then when I became pregnant the manager was inconsiderate of the fact that I was pregnant. Pregnancy definitely changes your body, so I was sick a lot, and I couldn’t stand up for long. They weren’t always considerate of that... they made me stand up for 6 hours one day with no break, and there were hardly any customers. Someone quit, so they gave me their full time schedule only to turn around the next week and say go back to part time because the managers wanted to always be there.

Fast paced learning environment, you have to be able to catch on quick, though it may get frustrating you can ease your frustration when you see the amount of sales going up when you’re in a position like i was.
