Fun, laid-back but little room for advancement. Good for a first job.

Associate (Former Employee)
Chicago, IL

I worked at Potbelly Sandwich Works part-time for more than a year

ProsThe job is fun. My store had people singing and dancing on the line all the time. The work is relatively easy. The food is great. Great first job.

ConsThere's little room for advancement. Working in the back of the house was often back-breaking. The pay was very low.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
