    I applied online – interviewed at Subway.

    Interview Details

    They will ask you your experience. It you have the requested experience or can make it up or have a degree they will hire you. The interview is more of a formality to just see what you look or act like. There's no real questioning or process.

    Sandwich Artist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Winona, MN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Winona, MN
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Subway.

    Interview Details

    It was very quick and easy. The manager calls to set up an interview if they think you're a potential match for what they're looking for. The interview process doesn't last more than 45 minutes, and that's when you are offered the job and stay to fill out paperwork. It's probably closer to 10 or 15 if you're not hired on site. Just because you aren't offered the position immediately doesn't mean you're out; sometimes the manager just has more people to interview before making a final decision.

    There is no negotiation. You start at the bottom and work your way up through the pay scale by completing Subway University courses online and completing timed tests for sandwich making.

    Field Consultant Interview

    Application Details

    The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Subway in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed in mid February, went well, normal questions from the young lady who was the manager. She went over the same information filled out on the website link, nothing special. I talked to one of the other candidates in the lobby after and he had the same experience level, felt good like I did about the interview. first, I thought my qualifications we satisfactory (I did have a well trimmed beard tho), however, I took the time to talk to a franchise owner in the area, and he blatantly told me that they want to hire a woman and give up. So much for the most qualified. I soon saw another and another craigslist ad up for the position; seems that a woman hasn't applied yet. Don't waste your time if you aren't of their specific gender preference.

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Subway.

    Interview Details

    First time I interviewed was because I got an application from a friend who worked there. I turned it in to the owner, who asked me about my available hours and I gave her my number. I followed up with a call a week later and got the job.

    Second time I got the job was by applying through the Subway career website with all my info. Store owner called and asked me to come see him the next day. I went, talked to him a bit, went back the next day, filled out an application, and had a 15 minute interview with him and the manager. They both decided right afterward that I got the job.
