    I have been working at Subway full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    There is unlimited growth up the career ladder. Health benefits is one of the most exciting benefits along with bonuses, paid time off, etc.They really go above and beyond to make sure that their staff, from the top down, is satisfied and happy!

    Cons

    Because this is a global chain, certain roll-outs or new innovations are implemented too quickly, and negatively impact the customers experience, as well as keep it difficult for the management to train the crew on. Some more notice on certain things could be extremely beneficial.

    Nothing personal about the company itself, but managing in a college town, turnover can be high. Restaurant Managerment weekly schedule can be a little crazy with the amount of time you must devote to it, especially if you're temporarily short staffed, but keep your chin up! It's the nature of the beast, and it always gets better!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you work hard, you will reap the rewards! Franchisees may differ, but the one I worked for for almost a decade (9.5 years) genuinely cared about my well being, not just the numbers. Run your store like you own it, and care for your crew as much as you care for your customers!

    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.
