    I have been working at Firehouse Subs full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    None. There's really none Pros. None. Nadie.
    Don't ever apply here. To be honest you wouldn't stay for more than 3 months

    Cons

    They pay a minimum wage and really wanted to make you work like a slave.
    Employees usually quite after couple of months after starts. There's other jobs, better pay and better work conditions

    I worked at Firehouse Subs part-time

    Pros

    We are very friendly to customers.

    Cons

    Your best is never good enough, bosses will tell you faster, faster, faster, in front of people. When rush is over they will say you need to hurry up and finish your job so you can get off the clock. Cleaning steamers, and caring the burning steamers, back to the dishroom with hot water in them, they don't care if you get burnt, and they have to be scrubbed to perfection. The pay is minimum pay, they always are promising more, like to be a shift leader, but that pay might only be $8.00 to then be an example and in charge of everyone else! I would only work 3 hours/ day when scheduled for 4, and then they would send me home, only to receive, 50% off expensive sandwiches. People have to work so fast, and receive so little. Many of my co workers would have 4 red bulls at a time just to try and get all this done. No dish washers, it's by hand. We kept it very clean though!

    Advice to Management

    Free food, and calm down off this high archy, that you think we should worship you. They all tried to be nice and work with you but it was a bunch of lies, never a wage increase. You are better off anywere else, were they don't belittle you.
