    Team Leader Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Orlando, FL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Subway (Orlando, FL) in May 2013.

    Interview

    Went to a hiring event. There were 3 managers there. They were very nice. Overheard one asking another applicant to tell him why he had left his previous job and the guy refused. That's when I knew I was a shoe-in. I had nothing to hide. They want customer service oriented people. Don't need to have a lot of experience, although I did but they are willing to hire younger, inexperienced people.

    Negotiation

    They start everyone at the same rate for the same level that they are hired at (or so they say) but promise you can move up quickly if you are willing to work,

    General Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Madison, WI
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Subway (Madison, WI) in September 2010.

    Interview

    One in person interview with owner. He seemed pretty understanding. He explained his "no call/ no show" ploicy, it was very relaxed. The owner is also a district manager. He takes great pride in his restaurants. He doesn't like to hire people that have worked at other Subways. Honesty is very important to him. If his employees leave before they have worked for him for one year, he sees their employment as a failure.

    General Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Grand Blanc, MI

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Subway (Grand Blanc, MI) in December 2012.

    Interview

    This is a franchise business. I applied online and was contacted within 1 week by phone. I had first interview at franchise headquarters with the director of HR. The interview was about an hour in length and covered my experience as a GM and led into how I would deal with particular circumstances such as employee theft, high food cost, steps to control labor, disciplinary procedures, and so on. Preparing a good number of questions for them is always recommended for things about their company. IE what is the growth potential, what are the benefits offered, what is a typical day for the position your applying for. The office was very nice newer building, with friendly staff whom appear to be well trained. After my initial interview I returned a week later for a second interview with an area Manager who basically asked the same questions and seemed to be getting a feel for me. Nothing all that different in the second interview. I was contacted a week later with a formal offer which we reviewed, agreed to and now I am currently still employed with this company.

    Interview Questions

    • The only question I was not fully prepared for was "What steps would you take if your are not in the black on your P&L statement?"   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I was given a reasonable offer by this franchise and did not negotiate for more. I feel that the offer was right on target for my position and experience.
