    Pros

    Good starting pay Easy job No real requirements Get to interact with people Part-time

    Cons

    Will yank around your schedule In-Store Management doesn't care about you Will cut your hours without hesitation Part-time people get walked on Full-time people can call in without finding replacements, part timers have to find replacements

    Advice to Management

    Take time out of your paper pushing days to actually sit down and do something for your employees. I was sexually assaulted an the manager just laughed it off. Not a thing was done. The employee still has their job, all their hours, and to my knowledge they haven't even been written up or anything. Is that really right?

    Worked to the bone sometimes, managers can fire people for liitle to no reason.

    Advice to Management

    Use common sense worry a little less about your bonus and a little more about employees also dont be vindictive if someone puts theyre 2 weeks in and youre already short staffed dont find a way to fire a good employee just because theyre leaving

    Pros

    love costumers and other employees, like that there is a 25cent raise after 90 days and then 25cent every year.

    Cons

    you have to clean the bathrooms and clean the outside pumps , the store manager sucks with the scheduling.

    Advice to Management

    allow your employees to have a day off without taking away all their hours because they asked for a certain day off.

    Worked cashier until I was told being taken off because I didn't fully understand doing Lottery . I couldn't because I was part time & put in kitchen or working truck . Was told had been there 10 months & should know how . Not with the shifts I had . Ask if I could get HELP to learn & was told NO . So I started looking for another job

    Cons

    Would not give me a chance to learn the Lottery , even other workers wanted me to have more training but was also told no

    Advice to Management

    Didn't want that job

    Pros

    -My store managers were great. (Your experience may vary.) -Flexible schedule (Your experience may vary.)

    Cons

    -Upper management is rude, condescending and usually has no idea what is actually going on in the store. They usually go out of their way to catch you doing something wrong so they can chew you out. It's usually something small such as docking the pizza crust in the pan instead of outside of it. (Docking it in the pan is usually more effective in preventing air bubbles.) The most trivial thing was cutting the sandwich bread for the sub bar. I cut it all the way through, because it's difficult to close if the customer wants to load it up. Upper management got on me because of that and told me that it needed to be cut only partway through because it's "the way Subway does it." -They expect too much work in the amount of time you have available. -The kitchen is usually understaffed. (Upper management loves to cut hours right before the busiest times of year.) -Some of their policies are strict for something that is nothing more than a gas station that serves food. -The pay is low for the amount of work you have to do and the kind of customers you have to deal with. -Employees have to pay 50% for their food, even if it's "expired" and going into the trash. (Even at 50% off, it is still overpriced.) If they catch you eating any of the food going into the trash without paying for it, they will fire you. -You can be written up for drive-offs at the fuel pump. (Most other places in this day and age either have you pre-pay or pay at the pump, making drive-offs non-existent.) -They may write you up just because a customer complained about you, without even hearing your side of the story first. -I have never seen so much wasted food in my life. Upper management kept adding to the quantity of food we needed to put in the warmers and the sandwich coolers, even though we were having to throw most of it away once it expired, and then complained that the store wasn't pulling in the revenue they would like. They also don't take into consideration that more competition (and better competition with lower prices and higher quality food) has appeared in recent years. -The store manager is extremely overworked and extremely underpaid.

    Advice to Management

    Let the employees and store managers run the store. They actually know what's going on. The kitchen needs at least two people at all times, especially if the store has a sub sandwich bar. At least three would be ideal during the meal rushes. Shut down the warmers during non-meal times to avoid so much waste and to allow employees to get their prep work done. Also, don't treat your employees like they are below you.
