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

    Pros

    It's a pretty easy job, There is a lot of room to move up in this company. The pay is decent and they give you a lot of responsibility if you want/deserve it. The hours are very flexible.

    Cons

    Working with a bunch of teenagers.

    Advice to Management

    The people who have been there for awhile are great but work on training the younger kids more :-)

    Pros

    Good quality sandwiches and positive management style in dealing with employees.

    Cons

    The franchise requires too much of the franchise owners which affects the pay and morale of the direct employees and straps the franchise owners financially.

    Advice to Management

    Cut their advertising budget in half and give it all back to the franchise owners allowing them to foster advertising through its direct employees by increasing their pay and incentives to providing great customer service and quality artisan sandwiches which is how the Subway Company became so popular.
