    I have been working at Subway

    Pros

    They give you free drinks and subs. 50% off subs. Fun environment. Nice co workers. Good managers. Busy. Easy to do. Flexible hours.

    Cons

    Lots of cleaning and prep for food. Night shift has to clean and prep for morning which takes for ever. Not too bad though.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have people in the am prep more so the load is lighter at night.

    I worked at Subway

    Pros

    I really liked working at subway because they were very flexible when I was in school. I also liked that for every four hours you worked, you got a free 6 inch. I liked that you only have to work with maybe one or two more people, if you worked at a restaurant that wasn't too busy.

    Cons

    The only con I can think of is that during the night shift sometimes its hard to get ahold of your manager. That may have been just with my experience because the manager I had wasn't very good at her job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should have people that really care about the company in the management position.
