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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

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.

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.

Acceptable but could be much better

ProsFlexible schedule and human and understand that youre a person who has their own problems too and have to deal with them sometimes

ConsPay is just minimum wage so nothing special and theres very little to no mobility from being a sandwich artist and theres a lot of cheating and gross health factors

Advice to Senior ManagementBetter compensation for the amount of work done
