I really liked working at Firehouse after a year until today. One of stores nearby ending up closing down so we got most of their employees. I came back after school to new people, dropped into the delivery system that we started, and being told I was doing certain things wrong. The lunch rush can be very stressful at times. We'll get a huge group of like 30 people and we cant take more than 10 minutes on each order. One wrong move and it'll take up more time and people will have to wait longer to get their food. I didn't like the delivery system they did because I felt like I was the only person who could do deliveries at night and it put a lot of pressure on me and had to get gas once a week. Aside from all that, I got to experience the food service as my very first job, I had some pretty nice coworkers, management was decent, but overall it was good.
30 minute breaks, possibility of getting very behind

A typical day included slicing the meat for sandwiches, making sandwiches, taking orders, and cleaning the restraint. hardest part of the job would have to be dealing with customers. every now and the you get a grumpy customer who takes it out on you and you just have to smile.

firehouse subs has a smaller crew of workers than most places so you get to know everyone really well & feel comfortable in your work environment as well as working more efficiently together. very bad pay and benefits.

On my first day I one of the shift managers used racial profanity towards me and called me a N****. That really bothered me. My first day of work I basically had to train myself. Some of the managers didn't get along with each other. I came in did my work and went home.

It is a good place to work at and I enjoy my time working there than most of my jobs I have worked for. They respect each other co-worker more as a friend then a co-worker. Only problem is the customers will driver you to some kind of madness on their specific request but it is handled in a proper fashion. Some days is can be very tedious but not too crazy.

But a very poorly operated franchisee.I am proud to say I work for firehouse and stand firmly behind what the company stands for, the support for first responders, the foundation, the product is especially noteworthy. With the glowing review of the company as a whole the franchisee that I currently work for has some less than impressive hiring habits.
Firehouse teaches you what you will need in future jobs by teaching responsibility, cleaning, inventory, and cashiering. These are all skills that you will need in future jobs so it is a great starter to learn from.
