Alright for a Student Job

Sandwich Artist (Former Employee)
Schenectady, NY

I worked at Subway full-time for less than a year

ProsJob is pretty straightforward, flexible hours. Most co-workers were nice as well.

ConsPretty poor management, especially with my training. The owner of the local franchise had cameras/mics everywhere and watched us frequently, which felt uncomfortable.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure your training is actually consistent! I was told to change certain details of how I did things frequently, it was never consistent.

ProsFlexible schedule and human and understand that youre a person who has their own problems too and have to deal with them sometimes

Good first job experience

Sandwich Artist (Current Employee)
Tucson, AZ

I have been working at Subway part-time for more than a year

Pros- 50% off (only for you on the days you work)
- Friendly staff
- Flexible schedules

Cons- Hours are NOT dependable. You can work 23 hours one week then 4 hours the next week.
- Coworkers are lazy and slack off leaving you to do all the work.
- Management MAKES you change the dates on expired product so they save money.
- Raises occur annually from the date hired, so expect low pay.

Advice to Senior Management- Get rid of the huge blind spots in the back of store so employees can't slack off.
- Please throw away expired product instead of change the date, its nasty.
- Reward hard workers more often.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Sandwich Artist

Subway Sandwich Artist (Current Employee)
Long Prairie, MN

I have been working at Subway part-time for more than 3 years

ProsThe job is fairly easy to learn and is not hard to get a handle on. You become incredibly close with the people that you work with, considering you only work with one or two people at a time.

ConsBecause there are so few people working there at a time, you will feel sometimes that you are doing more than you should have to at times. More often than not, you will encounter cranky customers. Your back and your feet will hurt from all of the standing and slouching you will do while making sandwiches.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere ought to be monthly meetings to inform the staff of the changes that need to be made. Staff should be aware of the monthly specials and how to make them. Issues with the staff should be addressed immediately and not brushed under the rug.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

good job for teens

Sandwich Artist (Former Employee)
Brooklyn, NY

I worked at Subway part-time for more than 3 years

Proseverything is straight forward and every one does a little of everything unlike McDonalds or burger king that assign one work to one person. this way you get to meet and interact with people. Everything is straightforward

Conslittle to no ways to move up the ladder really unless someone at the top of your store leaves, your pay will stay the same which will leave you wanting to look for better opportunities

Advice to Senior Managementnone whatsoever this is a job not a career

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
