    I worked at Subway part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Hands on experience with making subs, and interacting with customers. Great training program, competent managers

    Cons

    Pay is steady, but chances for raises take a while. As a student working part time raises are hard to come by.

    Former Employee - Sandwich Artist in New York, NY

    I worked at Subway full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Free HALF a sandwich during your break thats about it

    Cons

    1. Employees steal your tips, especially since many of these are franchise owned by a family.
    2. Minimum wage
    3. no overtime
    4. no benefits
    5. very long work hours and your back will hurt like crazy, too much for a human to handle
    6. Working here as a college student was the worst mistake I have ever don in my life, it made me very depressed and I wish I could go back in time and never accept the job. PLEASE AVOID. Horrible franchised company.
    7. Rats all around in the backroom and they poop on food, and we still have to serve it to customers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    more benefits, work life balance, more supervision, change everything

    I worked at Subway part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I have worked at Subways in three states and each one handles things a little differently because they are franchises. A pro is having a manager who allows for flexible hours and works with your schedule. Free 6" sandwich for each shift you work (some stores also allow getting a salad or pizza instead of 6" sub). There is room for advancement and employee growth.

    Cons

    Small staff, so if someone calls out last minute you may be working alone. Many stores only pay minimum wage.

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

    Pros

    Low stress, interact with a lot of people, and have fun.

    Cons

    Terrible coworkers, and possible dissapointments for customers can kill the experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be stingy with scheduling. Most times not scheduling enough people at any time hurts your business more then paying a little extra labor cost

    I have been working at Subway

    Pros

    -Anyone can get hired
    -No drug test (depending on franchisee requirements)
    -Depending on manager, easy to communicate with

    Cons

    -Anyone can get hired (mixed bag of committed, efficient coworkers and the lazy...more of the latter is hired)
    -No drug test
    -Expectation to work understaffed and on breaks
    -low pay and no tips and no employee discount
    -District managers that treat you like trash
    -Very determined to keep all workers off of full time to avoid giving benefits

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Work on worker retention. If you actually have happy workers, then you wouldn't be constantly overstaffed from frequent employee turnover and customer service would be better.

    Franchisees vary in work ethics... Don't believe each will treat you the same

    I have been working at Subway full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Once a Subway employee you can work at just about any Subway in the world.

    Cons

    Franchisees work you with low pay, no benefits and no room for advancement unless you are related.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't lie to you prospective employees about wages and room for growth because there is none. Most of the franchisees are related and run there stores the same way. Give fair wages and treat employees with respect and honor Fred's promise!

    I worked at Subway full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Salary, You write the schedule, Free food, awesome health insurance.

    Cons

    Small franchises don't pay team members well, They have no core roles for store managers, No specific and global training through-out (which would provide consistency for all team members, and managers), Managers are walked all over, being paid for 45 hours, and working 70 isnt ideal, Lead with a sense of fear vs. legitimate retraining.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Regroup, restaff senior leadership( they should have been able to train US the store managers), TRAIN!!!
