    I worked at Firehouse Subs full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The Area Representatives of all of the Colorado locations will treat you with the utmost respect, they were the best two people I have ever had the privilege of working with but you will likely never get the chance to work with them as I did. The hours were fantastic, the peers (at multiple locations) quickly became friends outside of work, and you will meet and learn about people in your community while getting to make them a delicious meal. The store I worked in volunteered to it's community and fire departments quite often, I enjoyed that.

    Cons

    Store owners:
    Will treat you like you are a waste of their time behind your back and voice it to other employees. Employee ideas went threw one ear and out the other, even the great ones.

    The job:
    You will be short-staffed at the most crucial moments of every day and overstaffed during all other hours, the owners will argue with their "numbers". Every week you will be delegated additional tasks without any compensation, recognition, or thanks. No benefits, unless you are the Store Manager, or unless you count the 50% discounted one meal a benefit -It's not. If you somehow manage to meet the expectations of an owner, you may see a 25 cent raise annually. The pay caps at only a dollar above minimum wage for anyone below Shift-leader status and increases by -if you're lucky- another dollar per promotion. Don't waste your time, burger-flippers are paid better wages.

    I worked for two different locations, over a span of four years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company culture starts at the top. If you treat your employees poorly they will treat you poorly. I hope you can change how you effect others and quickly.

    I worked at Firehouse Subs full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Ok salary, Free Food, Shift leaders, Culture. I was promoted from entry level position to general manager in 18 months.

    Cons

    Senior management feels as though shift leaders are more imoprtant than general managers. Minimum 50 hour work week requirement.
    Budget restraints are ridiculous sometimes (i.e. you have to have three shift leaders and have to have 7 employees working during lunch, yet they lower your labor budget)
    System is inefficient compared with Subway. (need more employees to run the same sales)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand that managers need time off and a healthy work/personal life balance. Its ok if a manager works 60 hours one week and 40 the next, sometimes they need to run errands.
