I have been working at Subway full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Easily able to get good hours, and request time off. Depending on location decent tips. 50% employee discount. Easy raise. Good if first job.

Cons

HAVE to work in a fast pace. As in for food prep you should not take more than 1hr 30 min cutting all vegetables manually includes all you see tomato, bell pepper, cucumber, onion (the worst!) Having your eyes tear and burn every morning! Having to work fast cutting and moving around quickly tend for some accidents. During rush hour for Subway 11:30 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. when everyone is on their lunch break you'll encounter more rude customers than usual. You'll always smell like a sandwich at the end of a shift. Management always expect you to keep busy even when all task are complete and is completely clean. They always have an eye one you, whether they're physically there or not.

Advice to Management

Management should understand that 90% of task given only take 10min to complete, and it's slow most of the time so to not insist in keeping busy all the time if there's not anything to do. It's just sandwiches.

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

    Pros

    there aren't many pros to working at subway, but the discounted/free food is a plus.

    Cons

    subway seems somehow "different" from other fast food places but trust me it isn't. the customers are rude and expect an exceptional amount of service. the owner will have you running all over town to work in his other stores. nothing you put down on your application will matter as far as hours/availability goes. this job honestly made me feel terrible and i really would not recommend it.

    Advice to Management

    treat people like humans.

    Pros

    Not too difficult get it. Staff is typically nice. Once you leave you don't need to worry about it.

    Cons

    Typical problems with food industry. Some people don't take it serious at all. At times you can have bad customers.
