Jimmy John’s is looking for smart, proactive go-getters who want to make some dough – literally. In fact, the restaurant hoped to hire up to 10,000 employees in various positions to support its more than 26,000 corporate-owned and franchisee-owned restaurants nation-wide during a three-day hiring event.
JJ’s Hiring Days took place from September 28 through September 30. Modeled after a similar event held in May of this year, interested go-getters could apply for a job on a dedicated website, interview the same day and if qualified, get hired on the spot at any number of participating restaurants during the three days.
Digital and social ads, emails and dedicated landing pages were created to elicit excitement and awareness of the event, and participating restaurants had access to other marketing tools, such as yard signs and flyers, to drive traffic to their local restaurants.
Jimmy John’s understands the importance of attracting and retaining top talent, especially now during a national labor shortage. To that end, Jimmy John’s offers flexible hours and some franchisee-owned restaurants offer hourly wages well above the national average. Employees at company-owned and corporate locations are eligible for other unique benefits such as employee retention bonuses, referral incentives, advancement opportunities, tuition assistance, paid time off, parental family leave, 40(k) contribution, monthly and quarterly bonuses and more. Above and beyond these benefits, all eligible employees will learn fundamental life skills including leadership, management, customer service and prioritization through Jimmy John’s employee training, growth and development programs.
This is an exciting time to be at Jimmy John’s, a category leader in freshness, quality and order and delivery execution. Even if you missed JJ’s Hiring Days, you can still look and apply for a job on the Jimmy John’s website.
