    I worked at Cousins Subs full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The only pro's I can think of are that I had amazing co-workers that are like family.

    Cons

    The job would have been halfway decent if the franchise owner was replaced. He constantly watched us on the cameras, which made us very uncomfortable and lied about promoting us. He also STOLE money from us (mostly high school students) by changing the amount of hours that we had worked in the system. He lied about upgrades on the store that would have made working there way more enjoyable. He would lie about being out of town so he didn't have to deal with "drama" at the store, such as a manager called in and there's no one to run the store, so the morning manager would have to stay late and shut the store down.

    Advice to Management

    You can become a manager within 2 months because they were so under staffed. But it was nothing special, since it only paid $7.75

    I have been working at Cousins Subs part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you get lucky, all your coworkers will be awesome. I'm friends with just about all of them and we all hang out outside of work as well.
    It's a relatively easy job; cleaning, stocking, cashiering, sandwich making, food prep, etc.
    Great for beginners.

    Cons

    As soon as you're behind the counter, you're not even considered human to rude customers. They'll get angry with you because it gets expensive and then get angry at you like it's your fault.
    You'll have to be willing to bite your tongue and smile nonetheless.

    Advice to Management

    Management usually does just fine. Schedules are usually built around the employees, but they should be a little more conscientious about the fact that majority of us are of the same ethnicity so there are events and traditions we all need to take off for at the same time.

    Pros

    All the people I work with are very kind and make the workplace a fun environment. Also, the food is AMAZING!

    Cons

    First of all, our air conditioning DOES NOT WORK, and it hasn't worked for a long time and the owner will not repair it. Second of all, the owner/head boss is a complete jerk and asks you to do literally 9 things at once and then yells at you when you aren't doing them all at one time. Also, the pay is just minimum wage and that's not that well.

    Advice to Management

    Please please please. Fix the air conditioning! Also, be nicer to the employees because most of them are teenagers and we also have a lot of stress on us already.

    Good food, decent training, and great HR department they truly seem to care.

    Cons

    Lack of staff, huge turnover, get rid of quality workers, very seldom reward people for a job well done just discipline them for a poor job.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention what is really going on in your stores
