enjoyable as a first job.

Sandwich Artist (Former Employee)
Melbourne

I worked at Subway part-time for more than 5 years

ProsGood staff benefits and cheap meals as a student on minimum wage, enjoyable colleagues of same age and interests

Consthe younger workers tend to be a bit less 'motivated' to work nowadays, which means they often call in sick. Some of the franchisees are just stress heads who are not nice to their employees - no respect.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease screen franchisees for their ability to work with people, especially highschool kids.

Ok if you're willing to take just any job.

General Hand (Former Employee)
Sydney

I worked at Subway

ProsFree food after your shift. You were allowed to take one 6 inch home at the end of every shift, but most people (including management) took two. This was one of the things that kept me working there.

ConsWage is absolute minimum and working on holidays does not have extra pay.

Advice to Senior ManagementTreat the employees with a bit more respect in terms of wages, and they will serve food faster and work more efficiently.

Good to start requiring customer relationship for beginners.

Assistant Manager (Former Employee)
New York, NY (US)

I worked at Subway full-time for more than 3 years

ProsFood is fresh, use creativity. There is no backdoor work other than getting the food ready, food is made in front of the customer so they know what they are getting. Good for beginner to provide customer service.

ConsAlthough the bread smells and tastes good, but it is often hard to get rid of the odor from the clothes. Customer expects the employer to know what type of service they desire.

Advice to Senior ManagementHigher wages.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Alright for a Student Job

Sandwich Artist (Former Employee)
Schenectady, NY (US)

I worked at Subway full-time for less than a year

ProsJob is pretty straightforward, flexible hours. Most co-workers were nice as well.

ConsPretty poor management, especially with my training. The owner of the local franchise had cameras/mics everywhere and watched us frequently, which felt uncomfortable.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure your training is actually consistent! I was told to change certain details of how I did things frequently, it was never consistent.

Subway Sandwich Artist (Former Employee)

I worked at Subway part-time for less than a year

ProsGood lunch benefits. Respectable customers. Good in school job.

ConsHierchy issues and changes in ownership of individual stores.

Advice to Senior ManagementCheck on your stores in person more often in small towns. The camera's just make us laugh.
