How did you get started at JJ's? I saw a job posting online for a customer service position at Jimmy John’s and it sounded like a good fit. I was fresh out of college and eager to get to work in the “real world.” Moving back in with my parents was not an option, so I had to find a job fast! I applied and was hired to work in the customer service department. The rest is history.
