    Former Employee - Sandwich Artist in Janesville, WI

    I worked at Subway part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    An ideal job for a high schooler. Probably one of the better fast food places to work.

    Cons

    Not very many employees (depending on the place) means that if someone doesn't show up for a shift it's hard to find someone to cover, or you may be called in all the time to cover for other people. There is very little opportunity to move higher up.

    I have been working at Subway full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Easily able to get good hours, and request time off. Depending on location decent tips. 50% employee discount. Easy raise. Good if first job.

    Cons

    HAVE to work in a fast pace. As in for food prep you should not take more than 1hr 30 min cutting all vegetables manually includes all you see tomato, bell pepper, cucumber, onion (the worst!) Having your eyes tear and burn every morning! Having to work fast cutting and moving around quickly tend for some accidents. During rush hour for Subway 11:30 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. when everyone is on their lunch break you'll encounter more rude customers than usual. You'll always smell like a sandwich at the end of a shift. Management always expect you to keep busy even when all task are complete and is completely clean. They always have an eye one you, whether they're physically there or not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should understand that 90% of task given only take 10min to complete, and it's slow most of the time so to not insist in keeping busy all the time if there's not anything to do. It's just sandwiches.
