    I worked at Subway full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Employees​ receive a free 6in sub for lunch and the job is routine and stress free!

    Cons

    Baking the bread and cookies was a challenge when we had rush hour. Keeping record of dropped​ food or unsanitary food due to some complication was a little rough but you catch on eventually.

    Advice to Management

    The contaminated food bin needs some critical thinking to make it convenient for the artists.
