    I worked at Subway part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    During my time at Subway, I grew to enjoy learning the orders of the regulars that came by on a weekly basis, making and proofing the bread for the subs, getting to know the clients, and especially, making the cookies!

    Cons

    A couple of downsides would include the five dollar foot long specials (especially if you get hired during this season), the $2 six inch specials, the sometimes tight scheduling (or lack of) of employees, and the late hours (now that they are 24 hours)

    Advice to Management

    I would like to advice management to get to know their employees! The branch that I worked at was very popular, but very understaffed, with a high turnover rate, just because the management wasn't very lenient to the employees concerns. Many times, subways are understaffed (yes two people seem like a lot at once until one has to clean the restroom while the other has to handle the dinner time rush). Be mindful of your employees basic needs and wants, and be considerate. (You help me, I help you.)
