    I have been working at Subway

    Pros

    Free meal every shift, nice people to work with. Varied Hours, schedule is not the same very week. hard to make a living on <300$ paychecks.

    Cons

    No Tips low pay. Very hard to make a living on min wage. Better off waiting tables at a restaurant or manual labor which which pays more

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Low Pay= Low Effort from Employees= Low Customer Satisfaction. Become better than fast food by treating people better than Mc donalds or Burger King

    I worked at Subway

    Pros

    It was a good first job in high school to gain experience for starting in a workfeild

    Cons

    Not targeting towards the franchise itself, but the management/owners weren't as experienced as they should have been and tried running it as a family business.

    Location I worked at needs to train new employees better

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

    Pros

    If it is your first job, it's a good one. You'll learn to become quick and efficient and work in a team. You'll get great communication skills. And best of all, discounts on Sandwiches.

    Cons

    Underpaid for the amount of work you do. I worked at a 24 hour Subway on a college campus. It is difficult to serve drunk students looking for a midnight meal on Fridays and Saturdays.

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

    Pros

    Easy to learn, fun to work there, an easy job to stay at for a year while you get yourself on your feet. I met a lot of really nice people there an made some great friends with my coworkers

    Cons

    They had too many employees to give everyone decent hours. The only time I got decent hours was during winter break. The manager was extremely unprofessional, it was a wonder how he stayed the manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be so passive aggressive. If you have a problem with a certain employee, let them know, and don't bring it up in a mass text to the employees.
