    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.

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

    Pros

    It was very friendly and I was able to coordinate with manager to change schedules if necessary without hassle. I got a unique experience working at one with a drive thru but thanks to the second sandwich station it allowed for more area to prepare platter orders when the store got busy

    Cons

    I found that the management were not very clear when it came to working at other subway locations. Often the owner had multiple subway locations and would not give very much notice when you are working at a different location. I was once told 20 minutes into my shift the drive over to the other subway to finish the rest of my shift. While I understand that they needed people at the other location, some more warning would have made my experience better.
