I applied in-person and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Subway in July 2013.

Interview Details Applied online. I didn't hear from them so I went into the store I applied to and I was lucky enough that the regional manager happened to be there by chance in which he then looked at my resume that I submitted over a week ago online. He gave assigned me a second interview the following week at there main offices. They asked me a couple questions and they offered me the job.

I applied through college or university and interviewed at Subway.

Interview Details Very easy and relaxing interview. Was overdressed for the interview. Word of advice, don't come to interview in a pant suit, a simple slacks and teeshirt may be nice. I was hired on the spot. Started training the next day. Fyi: they will ask your schedule and go over company policy and tour of store as part of the process.

Sandwich Artist Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Dundee, Scotland (UK)

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Subway in April 2014.

Interview Details Applied through the Subway Careers website for positions in a few local stores, got a phone call a few weeks later. My interviewers arranged to meet at a local restaurant but gave poor directions and was not organised.

During the interview, my interviewers were both thoroughly unprofessional and, while what they said was fine, their attitude and wording in places left me stunned. I am not allowed to quote what they said on Glassdoor but it contained multiple profanities aimed at previous/current workers at the store.

Ignoring the unprofessional attitude that had already put me off of the role, the interview questions were all fairly basic. There was a huge focus on my previous roles and my career to date, with some questions that were obviously targeted at gauging my suitability to the role. There was one basic numerical question.

Interview Question – How many hours do you think the store is open per week?   View Answer
