Owner and Management is awesome
team member (Current Employee), Phoenix, AZJune 18, 2014
Pros: great food, wonderful management and co-workers
Cons: short breaks
Opening a new store went off with few hitches, I don't believe we had enough time for training though. Our management team are exceptionally wonderful, our trainers that was assigned to us was good except when things got very busy and stressful, they would loose patients, either with us or the situation, attitudes started getting into the mix and added – more... even more stress to an already extremely stressful situation, I understand they were there to help but when that occurs it is no longer a help but a hindrance – less

Stressful and unprofessional
Cashier/ Meat slicer (Former Employee), Griffin, GAJune 16, 2014
Pros: very easy work
Cons: terrible management
As just a job the work is very easy and fun to do, as for this specific location I would not recommend working for these particular management/owners. I learned from this two year employment that It does not matter to this particular group of people how hard you work or how well you draw customers to their location. If you are not part of their "in" – more... group then you will not advance at all. I would show up to work early every day. I assisted in morning prep, which consisted of slicing meat for sandwiches and portioning it. After morning prep I cleaned all the dishes and the meat slicing machine. I cashiered during lunch rush. After lunch rush I would clean the lobby and restrooms. I would also help restock for the next shift. The hardest part of this job was the other employees. Most of the staff were young college students working part time, because of this fact the team members didn't work as a team, instead they were very cliquish. This is normally acceptable because it is managed by upper staff so that friendships do not interfere with their work. At this particular store the manager was one of the biggest supporters of the cliques. – less

Firehouse Subs is a very fast paced and challenging work environment.
Shift Leader (Current Employee), Bryant, ARJune 8, 2014
A typical day involves going in and setting up the store making everything ready for the day ahead. There you can learn how to multitask and become very organized, because if you are not then it makes running a restaurant very difficult. Everyone there is easy to work with and again no part of the job is difficult it is very easy work.

CREW/SHIFT MANAGER (Former Employee), smyrna, gaMay 28, 2014
A typical day at this job is very fast paced. I learned a lot about myself, how much I can really handle on my own. The management was very nice, and they made it very easy for me to learn the job. My co workers were great, they were all friendly which really helped.The hardest part of the job would have to be maintaining it on my own with no help. – more... The most enjoyable part was getting paid as with every job. – less

easy job, poor ideals
crew (Current Employee), Pensacola FloridaMay 23, 2014
Pros: free drinks, half price on one sub a day
Cons: possible poor management, bad customers, low paychecks no matter the hours
from my point of view the mamagement has no care for the business except to top each other in nothing. food service isn't bad but the customer base is either great or really snobby. co workers are good but if the management doesnt agree then it may create sides and in the end kill the business. hardest part is the nights with the management who simply – more... dont like the worker and do everything in their power to trash their shift. best part is a mix of synergy between workers and seeing personal regulars who know you by name and come back to see you if not for the food. – less

Fast paced work environment
Shift Leader (Current Employee), Austin, TXMay 14, 2014
Pros: one free meal a day, flexibile schedule
Cons: little respect from upper managment and crew members, low pay, limited hours
A typical day at work can be stressful because of the amount of work expected to be done with the bare minimum of people and a limited amount of time. The evening workers were always willing to work at the fast pace that was needed to complete all of the work that needed to be done before leaving for the day. The morning works were not used to the amount – more... of work I expected from them because of the extreme difference between the morning and evening shift. – less

Crew Member (Former Employee), Concord, NCMay 13, 2014
Firehouse Subs is the best place to work. Like even though some days was long and boring and others was long and busy you worked and had fun. The pay wasnt as great but they worked you to where you made a good amount of money.

Shift leader (Current Employee), Lakewood,COMay 8, 2014
Everybody did what they were told/assigned
I learned that in order to have a good work environment you should not only criticize but you should compliment employees.
The hardest part was telling people that they were fired.
The most enjoyable part was my co-workers they're funny and friendly.
