I had a good experience at Subway.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Subway part-time

ProsThis was my first job and I needed to start somewhere, so I chose Subway. I have always loved Subway and I thought it'd be a great starter job.

ConsSome of the customers are rude, but you just have to work through it. Also, being able to keep up the speed when there is a long line of customers waiting.

Great Job

Store Manager (Current Employee)

I have been working at Subway full-time for more than 3 years

ProsFree or discounted food and beverages. Flexible scheduling. Work environment depends on management and co-workers. If the franchise is large enough, employees can enjoy advancement opportunities and vacation time.

ConsChallenging to both fill with staff and meet labor requirements, often requiring management to go weeks without a day off to meet numbers. During low sales seasons, hourly employees average at 15-20 hours weekly. Thankfully, good managers are up front about this in the interviews.

Advice to Senior ManagementTrain management to be upfront about both pros and cons for every position.

Subway is a perfect part time job

Sandwich Artist (Current Employee)
Cottage Grove, MN (US)

I have been working at Subway part-time for more than 5 years

ProsEasy to learn, everything is straight forward. Great for a first time job for high schoolers to start out in the work force.

ConsPay isn't fantastic because it is geared towards young inexperienced workers. Not a lot of "moving up" in the company.
