    Pros

    The company had good goals and a quality product

    Cons

    Stores are truly different depending on owner. Over 15 years i managed many stores. A good owner makes a good place to work. A few stores i had to decline to run due to lack of concern for customers, employees and/or quality.

    Advice to Management

    Lead by example. Work hard to create a fun and productive workplace.

    Pros

    Daytime hours were good for summer break employee. All of the tasks were reasonable. Enjoyed who was I working with, and especially my manager.

    Cons

    Pay was average for part time fast food work, but it would have been nice to at least get a tiny discount for lunch.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing, remain friendly both to employees and customers. Maybe offer some sort of employee rewards.

    Pros

    Relaxed atmosphere, working with customers, good management, flexible scheduling, opportunity for raises, fair starting wage, plenty of options of location

    Cons

    Lots of working alone. Subways with no drive-thru often have just one employee during non-peak hours (lunch, dinner, etc.). No option for full time employment at the Sandwich Artist level

    Advice to Management

    Hire managers with more discretion. Store managers can either make or break the entire experience, and often will have a corresponding effect on employee happiness/turnover and similarly with customer satisfaction

    Pros

    Fun and interesting job. Made tons of friends and met so many new people. Would definitely recommend if you are looking for a laid back job

    Cons

    The pay is pretty bad but you can't expect that much when working at subway. Overall, I had a great experience so I would definitely recommend.

    Pros

    Laid back, flexible, good part time job

    Cons

    Constant bickering between day shift and night shift

    Advice to Management

    Working here was enjoyable but should be left to the teenagers or people attending school. Depending on how busy your area is, you may have a lot of down time. But you should make sure to get all your tasks completed otherwise you will be scheduled for 10pm and won't get off til midnight.

    Pros

    The pros of working for a company can help with Socializing, gaining work experience, and learning more about the company.

    Cons

    Some downsides of working for a business is trying your very best to handle and deal with difficult customers the best way possible.
