Not enough employees but allows you to gain experience (depends on the subway)

Subway Sandwich Artist (Current Employee)
Vancouver, BC

I have been working at Subway part-time for less than a year

Pros- free 6inch sub
- unlimited drinks
- better resume due to handling all tasks (eg. cashier, restocking, washing containers, etc.)
- multitasking & memorization (of subs)
- being watched and getting a call if something is done poorly/wrong

Cons- not enough employees
- no real break
- being watched and getting a call if something is done poorly/wrong

Advice to Senior ManagementWe employees try out best, but sometimes we make mistakes. It makes us more nervous if we are being watched on camera every minute and getting a phone call if we do something poorly. Please also have some document for us to sign so we know what we can do and what we can't. I think the management should be better....

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Sandwich Artist/Supervisor

Sandwich Artist (Former Employee)
Gander, NL

I worked at Subway full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGreat staff, just like family, the customers are great. Most of the time :) Free 6" and drink..

ConsWork long hours on your feet. No breaks, and if you want to go further in the company.. their is no where to go.

Advice to Senior ManagementHave enough staff, so your employee's can actually take "law" breaks.. an 8 hr shift has 30min and 2 15min.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
