    Pros

    It's a chill job while you're in school.

    Cons

    I personally don't like getting off at 9:30pm

    Advice to Management

    There should be more than 2 people every now and then other than lunch time

    Pros

    Customer service experience, good food, team work

    Teaches responsibility for young employees. Well rounded work, moving from cashier to stock to making sandwiches on a constant basis.

    Cons

    Boss was pressured because it was an independent franchise. Often the margins were razor thin and it effected workplace morale, customer service. It wasn't the worst environment but it could have been better.

    Advice to Management

    Our boss was in the shop 24/7. His life became the sandwich shop. This proved to be detrimental to the success of the business.

    Pros

    Free food for every 4 hour shift worked at the restaurant- depends on owner.

    Cons

    it's all about the money. Franchisor tries to rip off the store owners and it all trickles downhill.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to rip off the franchise owners so they don't keep cutting corners in their stores to try to survive. It's a neverending downward spiral.

    I worked at Quiznos part-time

    Pros

    The staff at Quiznos was amazing and very helpful. The food and organization of each sub-sandwich item(s) were meant to make it very easy for you to make a sandwich.

    Cons

    The pay rate at Quiznos was good at first, but it was very steady meaning it was never raised.

    I worked at Quiznos full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    We sold good food that I enjoyed eating, and I was proud to serve it to customers.

    Cons

    Quiznos is broken at the top. Do not buy a franchise with this company unless something dramatically changes which seems unlikely at this point. Food costs are really high for the industry, transaction counts are really low for the industry. This brand is in serious trouble (5000 stores in 2008, ~500 stores as of early 2016).

    Advice to Management

    Cut you corporate costs, and funnel money back to franchisees until you can fix the broken system. I know it's extreme, but it's really the only thing you can do. You don't need 20 people in marketing with your tiny budget. You need 4. Cut the waste, and stop charging part of the royalties until you can rebuild a system that works.
