    Subway Sandwich Artist Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Subway.

    Interview

    The Manager told me he doesn't hire people who smoke or people who have children. He asked me if I had children (which is against the law). He spent a lot of the interview bragging about how the store is the most popular in the city. I had to act impressed even though I was thinking "oh god this is sad."

    Interview

    I applied online & I got a call the next day to come in for an interview. When I got there, there were about 10 other people there. The manager just interviewed us & some of us got some papers to fill out, others didn't. I didn't because it wasn't the nearest location from where I was living. Overall it was an easy interview & they just ask basic interview questions. Don't sweat it!(:

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Subway in August 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online, received a call for an interview with the Assistant Manager about two days later. I arrived for the interview 15 minutes earlier but actually met with the assistant manager earlier so I left at the time I was scheduled to come in anyway. Received another call the next day to come in for an interview with the owner. This time the interview took a lot longer, but it was very relaxed. He explained a lot of things to me about what they do at the store as well as what they were looking for in an employee. He emailed me three days later saying the position was filled up because they were looking for availability and I had given him a pretty much restricted availability.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Subway in August 2015.

    Interview

    Interview was okay, very casual, some monetary calculations (basic stuff) and a few questions about personal experience, the manager (who interviewed me) rated my answers on a scale of 1 to 5, and I achieved high scores for each of my answers. My availability was sketchy, which I assumed would be a problem, however, after 3 weeks I still haven't heard anything. I assumed I didn't get the job but very unprofessional how they did not tell me, even though the manager assured me I would be told within the next couple of days.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Subway (Bloomfield Hills, MI) in August 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was very casual (inside the store at a booth), and Michelle, the woman who interviewed me, was very nice. She seemed very impressed by my availability. When I walked up to the counter, I asked one of the sandwich artists if they were hiring, and she leapt out of the back room shouting "YES WE ARE". The interview itself was not very structured, and flowed fairly easily.

    Interview

    The manager was very laid back. She let me do most of the talking. She asked some questions, which led into a small discussion on my half. Overall, this was a very easy interview and no one should feel nervous when approaching the building.

    Easy. It's like any other interview except easy. They didn't really ask hard questions at all. The person that interviewed me was easy going. He enjoyed what I had to say.
