    the job is pretty easy, but it can get stressful around lunch or if short staffed.

    Senior Sandwich Artist (Current Employee) Bakersfield, CA

    Prosonly good thing is the money and it's easy

    Consmy crazy manager, lazy co-workers, rude customers. and management does a horrible job scheduling. find out schedule the day before we work and they forget to assign people to shifts so you may be stuck alone for an hour because management is stupid.

    Advice to Senior Managementdisorganized, cheap, wasteful and poor marketing. management does a horrible job scheduling. find out schedule the day before we work and they forget to assign people to shifts so you may be stuck alone for an hour because management is stupid.

    Very Flexible.

    Assistant Manager (Current Employee) North Olmsted, OH

    ProsHad no problem at all working around my college schedule. Depending on owner of store, work environment is relaxed and quite an easy job.

    ConsYou will never make more than minimum no matter how long you work there unless you are the manager who doesn't even make that much, again, depending on the owner.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay more to the managers.

    It was alright

    Subway Sandwich Artist (Former Employee) Oviedo, FL

    ProsPretty easy job to work, small environment with not many co-workers to cause issues, people get promoted relatively quickly.

    ConsPay could be better, and more hours could be given, but if you're a college or 18 year old high school student living it home, then if isn't too bad.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNo favoritism!

    Road to Nowhere

    Multi Unit Area Manager (Former Employee) Harrisburg, PA

    ProsThe customers were pretty decent. The food for the most part is fresh and healthy.

    ConsThe business consultants did not back management up when owner was doing shady practices. More worried about keeping their job, not holding owners accountable. Owners regularly bounced paychecks, and continually had to have utilities switched back on after not paying their bills.

    great job at first, but not for long term

    Store Manager (Current Employee) San Diego, CA

    Pros-Eat free
    -Can meet really great people
    -Great manager pay with bonus
    -Teaches you great problem solving and time management skills

    Cons-Call outs there really is not a back up plan with this either you the manager works a double or you get someone to work there shift which mostly doesn't happen
    -The way labor works and units makes really no sense all employees rather they are great or horrible are considered the same
    -Upper management is only business and nothing else caring about there employees and managers does not exist

    Advice to Senior ManagementCare about employees more, allow us to have more staff for call out situations, and last re work the labor and how it counts employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Informal Marketing for Branch Owner in Milwaukee

    Marketer/Sandwich Artist (Former Employee) Milwaukee, WI

    ProsFlexible scheduling and workload based on employer. Employers actually have a lot of power, which is good if they are. Can work up in leadership; reasonable customer mobility.

    ConsCan feel dirty, and franchisee control leaves a lot to the discretion of the employer, which means the relationships matter. Can make for a good work environment, but also a poor one.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe humble, always.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
