    Pros

    After training, you run a whole shift by yourself. Your paycheck will be good and you'll love eating up everything considering the fact that no one is there to see you.

    Cons

    It gets frustrating when the customer's piles up and you'll have to stay later thenit's you're suppose to just to clean up the store.

    Pros

    Free 6-inch and cookie every shift, %50 off meal on days you don't work.

    Easiest job I can imagine, make sandwiches and clean the store is basically the entire job

    Cons

    Minimum wage starting out, Made 1 quarter more an hour working there 2 1/2 years.

    Owners would only allow 15-20 hours/week at most, some people worked less than 10.

    Advice to Management

    Had 4 managers my entire employment, the last one is what drove me and at least 3 others to quit within 3 months of her starting. Don't be so strict about every little thing and respect those that have been there dealing with dumb customers for more than a year.

  10. Great company to work for

    Pros

    Flexibility, college friendly, very easy work, and mostly good coworkers. The people that you serve are usually nice people or at least at the Subway i work at.

    Cons

    If you have a bad manager and crew then you will find yourself really wanting a new job, some people can be rude, and the pay sucks.

    Advice to Management

    To do both night and evening shifts because the hos should be fairly distributed. I didn't see my manager until I started to come in when they left at 2.
