Houston, TX

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Subway in May 2014.

Interview Details – I literally walked into the store, told the employee at the register that I was here for an interview, and she told me to take a seat anywhere. My interview was scheduled for 1 PM, I arrived a few minutes early, and they kept me waiting for almost 20 minutes after the scheduled time. So, immediately, I wasn't that impressed.

This was my first interview, so I was prepared to answer some standard interview questions. The interviewer asked me how old I was to confirm I was allowed to work, since I'm pretty baby-faced. After that, it wasn't an interview at all. I was literally just told they need people now so they're going to hire me, and he explained what shifts they need people, then he asked when I could start, and that was it.

Interview Question – As I said, all they asked was "How old are you" and "When you can you start"   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I didn't negotiate. First job, no experience, fast food, I went for minimum wage.

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Subway in July 2012.

Interview Details – I was called the day after I applied online. The application included one of those long personality inventories, but otherwise was pretty concise. I went in for my interview I believe a few days after the phone call. They asked some basic introductory questions: where I was from, what was I going to school for, what my previous job was, and when I left. That all took only about ten minutes. Then, for about 15 minutes, they described the work culture there: the importance of timeliness and consistency, the required uniform, and the shifts they expected to give me and what those shifts specifically entailed. I was hired on the spot, brought into the back room to meet the staff currently working, and given training shifts starting the next day. I think they were desperate for employees at this point. Overall, a very breezy interview. Pro-tip: they don't expect you to dress up, per se, but are always pleased when you do. Dress for the job you want, not the job you'll have.

Interview Question – Why I wanted to work at a Subway. In all honesty, I had very little interest in Subway specifically, but I needed the job. I did answer truthfully when I said I had always been interested in the processes used in fast food.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – They told me they pay a dollar over minimum wage, and expected more than minimum work.

Interview Details – You'll first be asked whether or not you've worked for the company or any companies like it. Then you'll be given scenarios of "what would you do?" and must give responses on how you would handle the situations. You'll also be asked to provide a work schedule and if appropriate, be offered the job. You'll fill out your typical tax forms and be given a start date.

Interview Question – The most difficult question I received was "what would you do if someone had allergies to something?"   View Answer

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Subway in May 2014.

Interview Details – I filled outt an application online and within a week or two i got a call from subway. I was brought in for an interview two days later and my interviwer forgot his paper with all the questions on it so he only asked me about 3 questions. He never mentioned anything about calling me or what hours I could work so I was a little disappointed

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Subway.

Interview Details – I applied online at multiple Subways. One got back to me within a week, the rest were extremely slow to contact and I had already got the job at the first contact by the time the rest contacted me. The interview was extremely laid back and consisted mostly of making sure I was not deranged. They asked what my availability was like, how long I planned to stay there, and what I sought to get from the position. My interviewer assured me that the store culture was to have a good time and also sought to be inclusive. She said to talk to her if anything proved different. She was point on, although the store culture ended up more laid back than I imagined. I eventually was promoted to Assistant Manager with my instructions to get more order around the store.

Interview Question – Honestly, the most difficult question was probably what I wanted to get from Subway. It was a very easy interview.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – The hourly wage started at minimum wage, however, they have structured raises. If I complete Subway University I get a raise, if I work fast enough, or close fast enough I would receive a raise. From there, promotions bring raises.
