    enjoyable as a first job.

    Sandwich Artist (Former Employee) Melbourne

    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.

    It was a simple job (if you only work as a casual in the food franchise) and the pay was reasonable

    Sandwich Artist (Former Employee) Canberra

    ProsAs a subway sandwich artist: simple tasks, not that many procedures and complicated stuffs, hours are flexible, the pay is reasonable considering the nature of the job

    ConsLots of upfront customer dealing, work can get strenuous and physically tiring (standing through all the shift with constant work: cleaning, preparing sandwiches), limited room for promotions or other job opportunity within subway.

    Sandwich Artist (Former Employee) Melbourne

    Proswhen i serve customer, i know in my heart that i am serving my customers fresh n hygenic food ..

    Conssometime you get hot-cold when due to toaster, bread maker and cool room .

    Advice to Senior Managementplease try to increase minimum pay scale. it should be atleast $19 at start. Because that is due to all the workers, subway is the biggest running franchise in food section
