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

    Pros

    The job provided steady predictable hours. Granted, the paycheck had MUCH to be desired, but that is just the way things operate in the United Incorporated States of America.

    Cons

    Management repeatedly ignored listed availability, flat out ignoring it when it was convenient for them, This is unexceptable, your employees are people, not robots.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If management would just treat its employees like actual human beings there would be little issue.

    I worked at Subway part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Free food when you work is a nice plus. The work isn't complicated. Employees are often trusted to work without the presence of a manager. Some stores have tip jars which can allow you to take home some needed extra money.

    Cons

    Management can be unorganized at times. Employees are expected to handle all duties required to run the store, but problems with under-staffing during busy time can cause everything to fall behind schedule for the entire day.

    I have been working at Subway part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Very easy work. You just make sandwiches and clean. Flexible schedules, good hours once you're experienced. You earn your hours here, so the harder and better you work, the better you'll be treated.

    Cons

    Customers are real pains, very rude to workers at times. When closing, it's easy to get behind on your work because of a rush, so you end up staying late to finish. Since its a franchise, rules can be very loose, which creates issues. For example, I was promised a pay raise and never received it. At my store there's no annual evaluation for raises. There are people who have been working there for three years and only make $8.50.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Firmer rules that are known throughout the company. More opportunities for advancement.

    Upper management does not treat there assistant good. Put almost all there responsibility on the assistants. The assistant usually are the ones to write up employees, come In when other employees call in

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Assistant manager need a voice. When you have your quarterly meetings let assistants attend the meeting
