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

Pros

Fun and fast paced environment.Time passes quickly during lunch hours.Good first job.

Cons

Low wages for standing on your feet all day.No support mats behind the counter to ease foot pain.Promised a lower management position that never materialized.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The wages are ridiculous for the amount of moving around one does.Do not entice quality workers with the prospect of moving up in the company if you never intended to do so.

    Cons

    you are on your own a lot.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    spend more time on listening to what the employees need. also it is very cut throat within the company and the district managers need to understand this.

    I have been working at Potbelly Sandwich Works part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Nice environment, it feels pretty good working with the people who have already been in this kind of industry before, helps a lot to know what i have to do to become better.

    Cons

    Not the easiest work to do, but in the end it is not the kind of job most people would find suitable. In the end its all about keeping up with the pace.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing much to say here.
