    I have been working at Subway part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Always felt comfortable with management and other employees. You can make a free meal after a few hours of work and free drinks.

    Cons

    I honestly have to say that the only real cons that I have here are that there's no where for us to sit and customers can be annoying/feign ignorance.

    I worked at Subway part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I was a sandwich artist and it was my first job. I learned how to be professional, have fun at work, and learned a lot about how a company grows and works. I believe my manager helped a lot with that!

    Cons

    You don't have much opportunities to grow when you are a 16 year old, but if you stick with it for a few years, you can be promoted! I don't have many cons!

    I worked at Subway part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    You are given a fair amount of responsibilities and decent wage. Always interesting culture of employees that makes for a fun working environment.

    Cons

    Long hours on feet. As a closer of the store, it would get lonely and boring at night working by yourself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!

    I worked at Subway part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working as a Sandwich Artist you have the opportunity to dabble in many different areas. This job is so much more than just making sandwiches. While at this job I had responsibilities like inventory, stocking different items, managing the till, keeping bread counts, and of course the customer service aspects as well.

    Cons

    A lot of responsibilities are required of employees and it can become stressful staying on top of it all and still managing to be efficient.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider more positive reinforcement in the environment as well as training meetings as a means of making sure every one is on the same page.

    Pros

    You get to work in a social environment. Good people, good food. They work with your school schedule.

    Cons

    No career ladder. Management can be biased and corporate does not take employee's input into consideration. Since I work for a franchise there has only been a 15cent raise within a year of employment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop favoritism and promote those who demonstrate leadership, hard work culture and positivity. Listen to employee complaints and ideas.
