I worked at Potbelly Sandwich Works part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Fun and fast paced environment.Time passes quickly during lunch hours.Good first job.

Cons

Low wages for standing on your feet all day.No support mats behind the counter to ease foot pain.Promised a lower management position that never materialized.

Advice to Management

The wages are ridiculous for the amount of moving around one does.Do not entice quality workers with the prospect of moving up in the company if you never intended to do so.

    I have been working at Potbelly Sandwich Works part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice environment, it feels pretty good working with the people who have already been in this kind of industry before, helps a lot to know what i have to do to become better.

    Cons

    Not the easiest work to do, but in the end it is not the kind of job most people would find suitable. In the end its all about keeping up with the pace.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing much to say here.

    I have been working at Potbelly Sandwich Works full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Discount, not really that much though.
    Some friendly staff
    nice neighborhood, it's safe.

    Cons

    PAY IS TOO LOW for the work I DO.
    the work load is alot, they make it seem like it's easy in the interview to get your foot in the door. MAKE SURE TO ASK what the prep entails, IN DETAIL before you take the position. THAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING.

    Then figure out whats on the prepsheet, All meat must be cut to the specifics(understandable) But don't flip out on ur worker if its not perfect. Dont talk smack either. I can easily go somewhere else.
    If you have a degree in business management good luck trying to get a mgmt position here. It's very clique ish. All in all I hope to find something better.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe instead of talking about ur personal life, or the cute guy at the counter. U could I dunno maybe instead of flexing ur boss muscles you could maybe get to know me. And stop swinging it around because you are the boss.
