    Pros

    My coworkers are super nice and the environment is good. Its not to bad making sandwiches but can get tiring.

    Cons

    As usual, customers are rude. Management is not that great. It is very fast paced and if youre not fast the customers get very rowdy.

    I worked at Subway part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I loved getting free meals and it's a good way to develop customer service skills. Fast paced environment.

    Cons

    Depending on management it can be a nightmare to get a decent schedule. I was on call for 3 different subways and sometimes had to call in to ask if i was working or not

    Pros

    Loved the other co workers. Great environment. Short drive with great benefits. Covered my insurance. Great medical benefits. They take care of their people. r

    Cons

    Long drives to other locations. Not the greatest quality meats and cheese and bread. Some customers were hard to deal with. Still like the company otherwise.

    Advice to Management

    Cut down the amount of franchises and subsidize the existing franchises so that revenue will be higher. Put some more artisanal items on them menu

    Pros

    great product, fresh product, lunch, dinner, snack, exercise, they pay you, it has air conditioning, also heating, cookies are good, bathrooms.

    Cons

    hard work=low pay, hard to manage a crew when higher management overrides everything. there is no repercussion for employee's, only management. very difficult to manage when they won't allow corrections to your crew.

    Advice to Management

    don't do it to yourself

    Pros

    Free or discounted food depending on your manager. Customers are cool sometimes. Lax hours, but again, depends on your manager.

    Cons

    You're overworked and sometimes left to fend off lunch and dinner rushes on your own. You smell godawful every day because the bread stench clings to your clothes. I worked in two Subway locations; one manager was amazing in every way, and another manager cut costs by using rotted vegetables. Subways are franchised, so your experience primarily depends on the manager and owner.

    Advice to Management

    Schedule more than one person to deal with lunch and dinner rushes. I know Subway stores are franchised, but have some sort of consistency. And there were no opportunities at either store because employee turnover was huge.
