    Pros

    Flexible management made it easy to schedule work around classes. Got to interact and get to know regular customers who appreciated our work.

    Cons

    Pay was not great--minimum wage with a quarter/hr raise every six months. A lot of drama between co workers and resentment as well. Also worked full time hours 40+ hrs per week (sometimes overtime) even thought I was part time employee.

    Current Employee - Subway Sandwich Artist in State College, PA (US)

    Pros

    Decent starting wage. You basically get a free meal every shift. Dishes aren't super dirty, so cleaning isn't a big issue. If you can make a sandwich, you'll have no problem here. Just stay calm during peak hours.

    Cons

    If you don't like the smell of bread, you're going to have a bad time. Also, in a college town, teens can be pretty immature and unmotivated. If you can't make a sandwich, you probably shouldn't apply.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management of the State College area stores seem to be under a tight ship. No further advice to give.
