    I worked at Subway part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It paid relatively well compared to similar jobs.

    Cons

    The franchisee charged their employees under the counter for missing inventory. Regularly shipments of bread dough came in missing or damaged. Everyone in the store tried to tell the owner there was a problem. People called the owner, texted the owner, talked to them in person, took photos and video of the missing inventory, but to no avail. The owner would charge the employees and if they did not pay in cash or personal check the owner threatened to take it out of the employees pay checks.
    There was no written or oral agreement with the employees that they would be charged for missing inventory. And other franchisees do not participate in this behavior.
    The owner also refused to give me a copy of the company policy and handbook when I asked.
    Several employees had reported the owner to corporate but nothing was done to remedy the situation.

    Advice to Management

    I worked at this location for five months before finding better employment elsewhere. In the time I've worked there five employees including myself were hired and seven employees including myself voluntarily left due to the disgusting practices of this store.
    I am in college and this was just my part time job while on school but to a lit of people Subway is their lively hood, and it is disgraceful that a franchisee is allowed to exploit people like that. Subway has the potential to be a great work environment but it never can become that when shady store owners are allowed to operate unchecked.
    I understand this doesn't represent all Subway stores or corporate but one bad egg is enough to spoil the reputation of all.

    Pros

    mmmm can't think of any pros.

    Cons

    Manager only hired high schoolers
    Pay was only $7.50
    Customers were horrible most of the time
    Co-Workers made it the most dramatic workplace (he said, she said)
    Applied to work 15-20 hours per week but was scheduled for more than 50 per week
    Not enough people working during busy shifts, customers made a line out of the building

    Advice to Management

    Don't be condescending and rude
    Hire people above the high school education

    I have been working at Subway full-time

    Pros

    It can be a very fun job, stays very busy

    Cons

    The new uniforms are completely pitiful for women to wear, not sure who came up with that idea. They get very dirty working the line and stains do not come out. The pay is lower than most in the area. Biggest thing you get no support from upper management. The GM of the entire store is amazing, however above that, they are clueless and just feed you promises they never intend to keep. good employees are not appreicated.

    Advice to Management

    Just wake up, after listening to concerns, act on them.

    Pros

    You will receive tips for people feeling bad that you are working alone at busy times.

    Cons

    I was alone after a week or less of training at a very busy place. They never cleaned the kitchen very well until I came because they were too busy alone.

    I have been working at Subway full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I heart my manager and she had always done her very best to help me or anyone else under her. Giving them chance after chance after chance when they, or myself included shout have been at the very least written up or even fired due to negligence.

    Cons

    Pay sucks big time we should be paid based on job performance not what the big wigs think we should be paid they are way to money hungry and Narcissistic. Yep I just said that.

    Advice to Management

    I have nothing bad to say about my manager, aside from like myself, she is way that nice like myself and is taken advantage if by her Narcissistic bosses.
