    I worked at Subway

    Pros

    Cool place to work, hectic at lunch and dinner rush. They are always changing to match trends

    Cons

    Franchise owned and can be great with a great owner but can be tough with a tough owner

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    These are 2 person crews, keep things streamlined and not to labor intensive

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

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, usually 25-40 hours a week if you have open availability, easy work.

    Cons

    Understaffing, lots of teenage coworkers who create an unnecessarily dramatic environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more hardworking people, not just some 16 year old who comes to slack off and leave the work to the rest of us.

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

    Pros

    Builds customer service skills and is a good first job. Healthy food option. Free food. Flexible hours.

    Cons

    Each store is run differently by the individual franchise owner. Some are awesome. Some are rude.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't treat your employees like crap. They are the face of your store.

    Give the customer the minimum or get written up.

    I worked at Subway

    Pros

    Free sandwiches, drinks, and cookies during every scheduled shift. Easy workload if working as a team if scheduled that way.

    Cons

    Hungry people are angry people.
    You will often be scheduled alone with a moderate to large amount of work to complete in a short window of time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There should be a minimum of two closers, for speed of closing, customer service, and saftey.

    I worked at Subway full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I loved my job at Subway, the owner of the store at which I managed was patient, listened to concerns, and helped resolve issues.

    Cons

    As manager, I was always on call. When I had a day off, I was still receiving phone calls and had to cover call offs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The upper management I had was the store owner and he was wonderful to work for.
