People of Jimmy John's



"I grew up on the south side of Chicago where l lived the upper side of poverty. With me busting my ass now, it just shows how far I can come. Being able to live on my own at twenty-one, everything life throws at me is on me, I don’t really get help from anybody. Jimmy John’s changed my life, and my direction, they are people who support me, and a company that helps me grow as far as I'm willing to take it. I’ve got so many great friends at work now. Jimmy John’s helped me turn my life around.”

    - Austin Stubner, First Assistant, Channahon, IL #537

“I’ve come a long way from where I started with Jimmy John’s and where I am now. The amount of hard work and dedication I put into Jimmy John’s makes me very proud, I never knew the empowerment that hard work would give me. I'm now in charge of my own destiny and not waiting for someone to do it for me. There’s a sign in the store that talks about hard work leading to success and that’s my favorite sign, it keeps me motivated. Thanks Jimmy John's!"

Why Jimmy John's is your true college best friend


Maybe it's a stressful first week of classes or that crazy, random roommate that collects cow figurines, but something brings you together.



and before you know it, you’re bff's 5ever



You do everything together. From late night study sessions



to spending lazy Sunday’s together on the couch (and yessssss Netflix, I am STILL watching, so judgey)



You sneak him into that one lecture you suffer through alone, because 45 minutes is just too long



and you’ll have your first taste of sweet freedom with JJ’s by your side



He’s always down to party



and he’ll have your back when the next morning is rough and walking to your 8AM feels like a trip through Narnia.



When you’re out of meals on your plan and your roommate keeps “accidentally” eating all your food, he’s got you



and when break time rolls around, you’ll wonder how you’ll get by without him



but don't worry, you'll always be #reunited, and it'll feel soooo good



With the blink of an eye, college will fly by Freaky Fast, but don’t fret, your friend Jimmy will be right beside you.



Yeah, you'll miss him



but never forget that you'll always have your memories together



So basically....

"I like getting to know my coworkers and hearing their stories. Every store I’ve worked in across the country, everyone ends up working at Jimmy John’s for a different reason. Whether it’s working after high school, just earning an extra buck or this is your sole job and this is how you pay your bills. It’s always interesting to hear why people work here. And to see how many people actually enjoy working for Jimmy John’s versus other companies. There’s a lot of happiness and pride to be a Jimmy John’s employee, they tell us exactly what we need to do and we rock it out. It's fun."
