The main Journeys International office is located on the far west side of Ann Arbor, a short drive from downtown Ann Arbor and close to Westgate shopping center. It is convenient to I-94 and M-14, with ample on-site parking. Most employees work on-site one day per week and from home the remainder of the time, depending on the particular demands of the position and the distance of the employee’s home from the office.
