Night Manager (Former Employee), Port Neches, TXDecember 18, 2014
After School I would go into work from 4-close 3-4 times a week. The job consisted of maintaining the integrity of the building, as well as stocking and preparing materials to be served to customers. I had to monitor the register and see that it kept a proper balance. Provide excellent customer service, keep other employees on task, and at the end of – more... the night make sure everything was in order and lock up the building. – less

Working by myself and making subs.
Supervisor (Former Employee), Miami Beach, FLDecember 18, 2014
Pros: free sandwich or whatever i wanted.
Cons: pay was bad and i had no insurance.
When I interviewed for this job i wasn't told that I would be working by myself at night and closing every time I was on shift.
Overall my experiences at Subway was good. I met a great and friendly family that owned Subway. I was 17 when i started working and it was my first job and i didn't mind what it was. After a couple months i started to realize – more... the pay was NOTHING for all the work i was doing. After talking to my boss he gave me a raise yet it still was nothing. I was staying late nights cleaning up after everybody who has came in and out through out the day and after myself too and making back ups of foods that were needed for the next day. It would get really busy and I would try my best to multitask and get my customers in and out because for the most part everyone that came in at night just wanted their sandwich and leave to go home. Thankfully I've always had a smile on my face and patience towards my customers. Other than that, Subway has thought me various things to multitask, have patience, and get things down when you have the time. It was a tough first job, you've all had those! – less

Friendly co-workers, most customers were polite
Sandwich Artist (Former Employee), Vancouver, WaDecember 17, 2014
Pros: free food, fun co-workers
Cons: constantly working by myself, especially during rush times, constantly injured on the job, manager was aloof
Subway has great food, anyone could tell you that. It's cheap, delicious, and it's fun to pick and choose what exactly goes on your sandwich.

Working there was a different story. Sure, the free six inch subs for every five hours worked were great, and I enjoyed making my own sandwiches for lunch. However, it was busy, busy busy. We often ran out of – more... something, which lost us customers on some days, and sometimes, the rush hours could not be helped. I lost count of how many days I've had to constantly pull bread out to cook it so the customers would be happy.

Most of the time, my co-workers were great and helpful with each other. Half the time, they were not. There were days when I was running the store completely on my own, and this included clean up, cashing customers out as well as making new ones food. I got yelled at for those moments by customers and co-workers/boss alike, even if the situation couldn't be helped.

Overall, I do miss working at Subway. I would do it again, if I could, and if I wasn't scheduled to be alone. Maybe it was just the one store that wasn't super enjoyable, but I did come away from it with a new set of skills that I'd love to use again. – less

organized , always had exciting new faces to see every day a ;pleasure to service
Cashier (Former Employee), Springfield, MADecember 17, 2014
Pros: 25% discount for food
Cons: the pay $8.00
I would come in see what needed to be done as in organizing shelves, unpacking new shipments,made sure to maintain a clean environment.working in this business i learned about working in a quicker pace, staying organized, packing and handling, also having great customer service. i enjoyed the customers i provided service to and the environment i worked – more... in. Meeting new faces and personalities were amazing. I didn't like to stand still and do nothing so when the job will start to slow down i would have to occupy my time by doing whatever needed to be done, rather to waist time. one thing i loved about my job was meeting new customers and providing them with what they enjoyed. – less

Sandwich artist (Former Employee), coloradoDecember 16, 2014
Pros: customer service experience
Cons: no benefits
There is room for improvement but sometimes the work to compensation ratio is out of proportion. The wage needs to be at a higher rate for people moving up to supervisors or shift leaders.

Customer Service Team Leader (Former Employee), Edinburgh, IndianaDecember 16, 2014
Pros: everyone is happy
I want to share a little story that occurred at work and how amazingly good I handled it. So everyone has ran into that customer that has a problem for nothing. One day at work I had a family come in or a group of friends. I always wash my hands and I make sure the customer sees that. So I walked over to the sandwich counter and the guy goes could you – more... go wash your hands again. So I do as he say. Than I go to serve him and he's being really rude and saying things and laughing at me. So I ignored him and before he left out the store. I made sure him and his family was ok and happy, After they left the store my manager approach me and told me how good I handled that situation. I've learned that no matter what the person is doing you still should carry on and make them happy. My co-workers told me how they was proud I handle the situation right. I didn't have any hard moments because I've seen this before and learned to approach it the right way. My must enjoyable part about the situation was that I was being so nice. The customers wasn't very nice but I felt so great for making them happy even though they tried to upset me. – less

This is a fun fast pace enviroment
Sandwich artist (Former Employee), Fort Worth, TXDecember 16, 2014
Pros: free meal, good hours
Cons: no breaks
A typical work day here is pretty busy. I would work with a team member, or individually serving guests. There is a lot of preperations and cleaning to do, along with serving customers, and preparing the store for closing. The management here was ok, they were always fair. My co-workers however was family to me. The hardest part of the job was training – more... a new co-worker, while having to serve customers and prepare the store for closing. The most enjoyable part though is the act of actually making the sandwich, and talking to guests. – less

Crew Member/Cook (Current Employee), Bloomington, ILDecember 16, 2014
Pros: fun, easy, good pay, happy customers/employees
Cons: late nights
A typical day at work is usually non-stressful, the atmosphere at Subway is mainly positive and happy. I get along with all my employees and especially the customers. I've learned how to manage the store, become a better employee, complete tasks in a limited time, work well under pressure, I basically learned everything possible from working at a store – more... that's in the food service business. The manager here is just wonderful, hes a boss and a friend when hes needed to be, never have I worried about work because I don't like my job or boss, I love my boss and job. The hardest part of the job was probably in the beginning trying to learn everything, even though it didn't take me too long. The most enjoyable part of the job is interacting with the customers and other employees, – less
