    I worked at Firehouse Subs part-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    About what you'd expect from a fast food job. Easy to get and low hourly pay. Couldn't be any less to it. Not a hard job, and really straightforward tasks.

    Cons

    Same cons as just about every other food service job in existence. Lots of hours on your feet, the occasional mean customer, and weekend shifts.

    Advice to Management

    Actually, the management at my location was pretty good. No complaints here.

      Pros

      Easy work, chill environment, flexible hours

      Cons

      Not enough hours (30 at most), your store management can do whatever they want, not very good pay

      Advice to Management

      Franchises should treat employees well. Do more to make sure this happens.
