    Subway is a great experience, although not easy. Not for the weak.

    Pros

    Low stress, interact with a lot of people, and have fun.

    Cons

    Terrible coworkers, and possible dissapointments for customers can kill the experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be stingy with scheduling. Most times not scheduling enough people at any time hurts your business more then paying a little extra labor cost

    Pros

    Franchise. Easy to transfer since product and training are done by corporate. Get free food while you work. Easy to learn and fast pace. Great opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    This is a franchise. There are difference at each store and they can change things. I got paid weekly, while another store in the same town got paid bi weekly

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication

    Pros

    Meet lots of people, busy all of the time.

    A lot of standing! You can have a solid rush of people for more than an hour at one time. Non stop.

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

    Pros

    Subway is a clean and good environment to work in that I've actually grown to love. This place would be recommended by me for anyone that loves people.

    Cons

    Baking 18 pans of bread is okay. But when it's a busy day and you have to make 36 it's not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be amazing if Subway offered training handbooks to all job positions (In my case Shift Manager). Most of the stuff was taught by myself by glancing at the Subway Operations Manual.
