    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.

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

    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.

    Pros

    Great, supportive management team. Flexible hours. This position gave me the opportunity to work learn many different skills (food prep, customer service, cleaning, management.)

    Cons

    There are several things that employees need to be on top of: food prep, cash handling, sandwich making, cleaning. It can sometimes be overwhelming, especially if the company is understaffed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be organized about what is expected of employees.
