A lot of competition

10 years ago, Subway was one of the few stores selling subs. Now, food is every where. I have turned over the stores to my wife and looking for a new exciting job.

Understaffed. Overworked. Area manager is rude and unhelpful

Not paid well. Managers from other stores getting raises and promotions and don’t deserve. Only 2 people on shift of lucky. No help from area managers

Fun work place and fast days

The owners are very involved, supportve, and helpful at my location. Once you get the brand standards down and into a routine it's really simple and enjoyable if you manage the store to not tolerate or feed into typical workplace drama. Can be stressful when you're still learning the ropes during rush hours but it passes once you adapt and know the ins and outs of the store. Fair wages and the tips absolutely make a huge difference in the paychecks!

Not great

The employees were fun to work with but the management wasn’t great. I was supposed to work at a different store in the chain instead as they had me driving almost 40 minutes. The store itself is fine but the upper management isn’t great

Management issues

The schedule changed constantly and no one told you it changed. You were simply expected to show up even if they change it on your day off and add you the next day🤦

It's alright

I really didn't have a great time working due to management at the time. However I know a lot of people who have made it and loved it. It wasn't that bad at all except for the lack of breaks and being talked down on by management. It was mildly stressful during dinner and lunch hours getting a massive rush in but all in all it's fine. It wasn't the worst experience but it also wasn't the best.

In the summer it's an Amazing place to work!

Spring and Summer, as well as a bit of Fall, it's an amazing place to work, however, during winter, it becomes a struggle to maintain hours. There is no fault of theirs, however and the Owner is actually a great person to work for. They are surprisingly caring and considerate of your needs. It's just the TOWN. The town has no real economy in Winter and everyone suffers. Overall, a great place to work but hard to make ends meet with this job alone. I'd recommend working more than one place if thinking of working here. But that advice applies to ANY PLACE in Lusk, Wyoming. Gotta have multiple jobs.

Poor management

Management had poor scheduling and did not properly train their employees. Expected way too much, for so little. Treated their employees poorly and was hostile.

It's a fun place to work but the location has drama

I absolutely loved the job.! But the managers employed a lot of family members and showed favoritism towards the people who were family and would give the other employees a bunch of grief and wouldn't correct the family members and also brought family drama to work

It was okay

It was am okay place to work. Doesn't seem to really know what's going on. Fly through people like it's no one's buisiness. Says they need people desperately, but then doesn't hire anyone when they have interviews

Good job for high school student looking to make extra money. They don’t give a lot of hours though, and the managers like to micro manage. It can be stressful at times

Easy work but difficult work environment

Working at a subway can be easy work. Especially for someone younger. Managing one can be a difficult task depending on who owns it, their personality & the staff you work with. Alot of times the owners will have their relatives work there & unfortunately, majority of them don't end up being good employees in the end. Choose wisely when it comes to location. Not all Subways are the same.

Good job out of highschool

Pros: excellent pay, easy work, great crew to work with. Lots of opportunities for advancement. Cons: inconsistent schedule, sometimes customers can be rude or unpleasant to deal with.

Loads of drama and unprofessionalism

As a regular employee you are expected to make sure everything gets done but aren't compensated for having to pick up the slack. Management doesn't address any of the issues between employees. They just ignore them and hope it goes away. Will not let you know if you will be schedule for the two weeks notice given and then will deduct you down to state minimum wage if you quit as well as keep all of your tips.


It's a job

It was a cool experience

I worked at subway in my senior year and it was actually pretty fun. Well I believe it depends on where and who you work with. I transferred to 3 different subways the first one, the manager was very rude, the second one it was cool but I needed more hours and then I finally was at a workplace I actually liked, it was at SDSU everyone there was so welcoming funny and really awesome. So again I feel like it depends on where/which location you go to or your trainer

Fun and fast paced

I loved making sandwiches only thing was the pay and they would make me close by myself which I later found out that is not okay. Especially as a female. I did have fun though when you have the right crew.

Easy and fun workplace

Job was easy. Pay wasn't great. Pretty expected for what it is. The hours were manageable and the workload was manageable as well. The job is repetitive but simple

Good place to start out with!

Managers and co workers can make or break you're experience but I had the pleasure of working with people that were nice and were determined to make every customer there happy! Weekends were kind of okay you were by yourself for quite a while but if you do everything correctly and in a timely manner you won't be behind :) Great for a first job!


Flexible schedule and discounts


No breaks, working by yourself, and occasional rude customers

Fine job to get experience

An easy beginner job to get some experience. Don't expect a good salary or too many opportunities. Tips are split evenly. The workers around you will decide how much you enjoy this job
