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

Pros

-Easy enough to learn everything relatively quickly.
-There can be slow periods that offer some time to take a break.

Cons

-Management seems more concerned with the bottom line than the morale of employees. I often feel as though I'm not human in their eyes, only an entity used to increase their profits.
-Often the store seems understaffed, as management will not allow more people on a shift if it cuts into their profits. This creates a very stressful environment with too many things to do and not enough people to do them.
-Very little praise for doing things right, and lots of scolding for doing things wrong or making mistakes.
-Lots of petty workplace drama.
-Very little opportunity for growth.
-Policy states that there is no free food and no breaks for employees, even if they work 10+ hour shifts as I have often been required to do.

Advice to Management

Treat your employees like they're human. Pay them fair wages and allow breaks, even if it means another employee has to be there and cut into your precious profits. When morale is high, your employees are more productive and happy.

    I have been working at Subway full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Each store is different but it all boils down to franchise owners, management, and your team members. There is chances to move up in the company as high as General Manager.

    Cons

    Subway does not know what it wants and often leaves its stores in the dark until the day before something happens. High expectations for productivity and food cost but tools are not always provided to succeed. No benefits except minimal paid vacation time.

    Advice to Management

    Subway needs to get its plans in order to make business smoother for everyone.

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

    Pros

    The management is general good with working around school schedules and scheduling time off in advance.

    Cons

    The pay is low, the customers are rude, management always runs out of product because they dont order enough to get their "bonuses"

    Advice to Management

    Quit worrying about your bonus checks when ordering inventory and just order what you need. You get the entry level employees yelled at by customer.
