    I worked at Potbelly Sandwich Works full-time (more than 3 years)


    This is relating to an assistant mgr podition...Sometimes you have the pleasure of working with really great people. Its nice to have some flexibility with scheduling like requesting days off or to work and opening, mid, or closing shift. There are some things that have to be done on a weekday during the day. Depending on your GM they might accommodate a last minute request.


    You must work a minimum of 50-55hrs. Employee morale can be pitiful. They call off Most GMs are too fickle when enforcing policy and standards. The shift leaders don't get paid enough to care as much as they need to which shifts the burden back to the mgrs. The benefits ate sub par in the he fact that you are not allowed to be sick. There isn't anyone to cover for you so you have to make up the day. If not your bosses will be mad for using more hourly labor. There is no paid paternity/maternity leave. There is very little support for the mgmt.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take better care of the employees. Create a positive work environment for the stores by making sure the mgrs have a good work and life balance. Don't be concerned most about the bottom dollar and profit. If the work environment is good then everything else will fall into place. Invest in your employees not just the company expansion.
