    I worked at Quiznos full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    My boss was pretty flexible with needing to take time off. I was always challenged and I really enjoyed the people I worked with.

    Cons

    I felt that there was no stability a good majority of the time I worked for. There was always new management or floor move or huge changes being implemented.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Constant communication should be at the forefront and you should take some time to listen to your employees.

    Pros

    good people in the corporate office

    Cons

    long hours, low pay, no respect from management, tried to reinvent the sub, no focus on customers, micromangers, upper management is clueless on what the owners and managers want, in order to advance you have to be a yes man

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get a clue, give your customers a quality product at a resonable price, dont try to reinvent the sub sandwich

    Pros

    Great opp to travel and meet people.

    Cons

    Lack of communication
    Very disorganized in their priorities
    Closed units without notice to employees
    No upper mobility

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No words needed to management just didn't seem that the company (QUIZNOS) had their employees interest. Hire on board and work for 3/4 months than close the units, big business WOW....

    I worked at Quiznos

    Pros

    Very fast paced, direction changes very quickly. People were treated as professionals, you never had to put up with harassment.

    Cons

    The direction changed daily, no one really knew which way we were going. A large number of people were recruited and hired only to be laid off a few months later. Quiznos has a history of boom and bust. Only work at the corporate office if you can get a contract, otherwise you are likely to be out on the streets a few months later. The upper management staffed up to do a huge cost reduction program only to then lay off everyone once the project was complete. It appears the company is currently up for sale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try selling one of the corporate jets to make up for your bad management decisions. You can fly like the rest of the world.

    I worked at Quiznos

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are ok, and it looks good on a resume to employers

    Cons

    Very cliquish place to work. If you are in the inner circle you can make multiple costly mistakes and rise to a leadership role. If you are not in the inner circle you are just there till the next round of layoffs and are considered expendable. they are quick to hire and fire, you are never secure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They won't take advice, they already know everything. That is why they have had well over 2k stores close in the past couple of years.
