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

    Pros

    Easy job once you get the hang of it.
    Flexible scheduling if I need a day off.
    Opportunity to advance is there.
    Pay is good. Job security is good.
    Customer interaction is great.
    Love to see the diehard regulars

    Cons

    It makes it hard when you are on shift wth new hires.
    Learning curve is high.
    The amount of information to absorb as a trainee is too much.
    Menu is too big

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Proper training/staffing at peak hours would minimize problems.
    Sift out the employees that are there just for a paycheck.
    Get rid of the sandwiches that are only ordered 1/day or 1/week
    Get rid of the lettucewich.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, especially if you have daytime availability. Thorough training, and daily duties assigned by talents within the team. An upbeat atmosphere with great costumers.

    Cons

    Low compensation. Many coworkers were unmotivated/not focused on getting the job done well. It's a good started job, but not a sustaining career.

    I worked at Which Wich part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    My coworkers really felt like family, including the manager and owner of the location. It was my first job, and I still miss it to this day! Loved the relationship I got to build with my frequent customers, and how the best workers got credit! I was able to get several raises in the 3 years I was employed there, which is a lot for a minimum wage food worker! The "vibe" we all created at the store was fantastic and it felt like my home away from home.

    Cons

    Would love to see the employees get payed more, but I understand it depends on how much the store itself is making. Also, allow tip jars! We deserved it!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay employees better, including managers!

    Pros

    Great people to work with at the actual store.

    Cons

    Cooperate seems much more invested in their image than the wellbeing of their employees. the pay is miserable and they will overwork you with no intentions of compensating you for any of it.
