    Great place to work

    Current Employee - Subway Sandwich Artist in Neillsville, WI

    Pros

    I worked with alot of great people the same age as me. I was given opportunities to open the store and get more hours. My manager was wonderful and always worked around my school schedule and allowed me to have off for family vacations.

    Cons

    Some employees do not have great work ethic. I was one of the hardest working employees and only got one raise after being there for almost 2 years. Had a few bad experiences with customers. People can be very rude when it comes to fast food.
