The pay at Subway starts out very low, and takes years to increase.

I have been working at Subway full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Freedom to sell, and manage in your own style.

Cons

Schedule is all over the place. Very physically demanding.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The staff in every store works so incredibly hard. They should be compensated better than they are. The old saying holds true. "You get what you pay for". The Franchise owners seem to be too disconnected from the daily activities at their stores.

    I worked at Subway part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    This is an easy high school or after high school job..depending on the location. It can either be busy or have random customers come in every once in a while.

    Cons

    Can get a little stressful depending on location of chain. Lunch hours can get very busy.

    I worked at Subway part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    None BTW food is NOT free in my former location. In most restaurantsemployees pay half price and ONLY when they are working.

    Cons

    No breaks after 8 hours. Next to impossible to do one thing at a time. Everyone does everything all the time no title except for managers. Nepotism. Franchises follow their own rules

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire ppl who aren't related Hire more ppl who aren't using drugs. Stick to protocol all the time not just when regional managers are there. Have more ppl working per shift. Hire a prep person and don't have counter ppl running back and forth. PS You can hire all those celebrities to promote your stores and run a zillion annoying commercials per hour but can't pay more than minimum wage to start? Privately owned local restaurants pay more to start. Arbys pays more to start.
