  2. Easy work but it's gets busy with customers who don't know what they want or are difficult.

    I have been working at Subway part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Free sandwich when worked, great for students or first time job

    Cons

    Management sucks. She's still a little fresh on being a manager and she doesn't always know what she is doing or do things the correct way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get the cameras working again. There's a certain someone doing a lot of shady things at this place.

    I worked at Subway full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you like their food you can probably get a free sub every shift you work. You can snatch some cookies too.

    Cons

    Working here is pretty horrible. The lunch and dinner rush is brutal at most stores. Plus the customers stare down at you the whole time, it's annoying.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow your employees some downtime when it's slow, it's necessary to fully recover from the rushes. And pay better.

    I worked at Subway

    Pros

    You get a free 6 inch sandwich every shift

    Cons

    Zero room for growth, the scheduling is sporadic at best, always understaffed and then written up for not getting everything done, management is a joke and they honestly don't care bout any employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe try just a little. It would have been nice to be trained before I closed by myself. Also do something about the scheduling, its rediculous that I have to go to the store on Tuesdays to see if I work that night

    I worked at Subway full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Free HALF a sandwich during your break thats about it

    Cons

    1. Employees steal your tips, especially since many of these are franchise owned by a family.
    2. Minimum wage
    3. no overtime
    4. no benefits
    5. very long work hours and your back will hurt like crazy, too much for a human to handle
    6. Working here as a college student was the worst mistake I have ever don in my life, it made me very depressed and I wish I could go back in time and never accept the job. PLEASE AVOID. Horrible franchised company.
    7. Rats all around in the backroom and they poop on food, and we still have to serve it to customers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    more benefits, work life balance, more supervision, change everything

    I have been working at Subway

    Pros

    -Anyone can get hired
    -No drug test (depending on franchisee requirements)
    -Depending on manager, easy to communicate with

    Cons

    -Anyone can get hired (mixed bag of committed, efficient coworkers and the lazy...more of the latter is hired)
    -No drug test
    -Expectation to work understaffed and on breaks
    -low pay and no tips and no employee discount
    -District managers that treat you like trash
    -Very determined to keep all workers off of full time to avoid giving benefits

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Work on worker retention. If you actually have happy workers, then you wouldn't be constantly overstaffed from frequent employee turnover and customer service would be better.
