    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Potbelly Sandwich Works part-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    coworkers are great, bosses are understanding, if you like customer service then this is a good position

    Cons

    understaffed frequently, hours get cut randomly, asked to come in early a lot

    Advice to Management

    Follow your motto of 110% staffing and send people home if it's slow, please stop telling managers to cut hours and then leaving us short handed on the days we need staff

    Current Employee - Catering Coordinator in Hillsboro, OR
    Recommends
    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Potbelly Sandwich Works full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Flexible schedule for shift leads, evenings and weekends off for catering coordinators. Good pay, good raises, good benefits if you work over 30 hours a week.

    Cons

    Management is very strict on policy/dress code. No tips. Quite often understaffed in multiple stores in a district (I'm talking about Portland, OR) specifically. Possible better on the east coast for that.

    Advice to Management

    It feels like the company as a whole is turning into Subway instead of a chill, neighborhood sandwich shop. Which is what potbelly is supposed to be. Probably should go back to old values and management style.
