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
