    I worked at Subway full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    You get a six-inch sub for every 3-4 hrs of work. Work isn't challenging.

    Cons

    Tasks can pile up whenever you get busy especially during the lunch and dinner rushes. Your clothes will smell like Subway forever and after a few months, never be able to recognize the smell as you get so used to it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As a sandwich artist it can get quite stressful...listen to your employees and make it as pleasant as possible.

    I worked at Subway

    Pros

    You get trained in different aspects of the food and customer service industry, such as safe deli prep and using the cash register system.

    Cons

    As with any job in the food industry, you need to have patience when dealing with customers. Subway has a strict formula for their sandwiches that customers are usually disgruntled with.

    Pros

    Personal growth - a great opportunity to learn how to be patient, polite and amicable

    Cons

    Rush hour - customers tend to be very impatient and rude during rush hours. So if you're not a very patient person, fast food services would not be the best place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Staff more workers during rush hours.
