    Interview

    The interview process was really simple. I showed up and the owner of the store asked me a few questions about why I wanted to work there - you know, basic behavioural questions. He brought up the online personality quiz that they use to screen for applicants and apparently I scored very high in all aspects. Afterwards the owner talked about what he wants in an employee, what my basic duties were going to be, etc.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Subway (Surrey, BC).

    Interview

    Arrived at the place 15 minutes before. Waited for interviewer for 40 minutes, interviewer was wearing a baseball cap, t-shirt and shorts. Got called in, asked a few questions, interviewer's attention was divided, didn't look at me in the face, was late, condescending, rude, and unprofessional. Unfortunately got the job, had no choice but to take it (staffing agency had time for another interview).

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Subway (Halifax, NS) in September 2014.

    Interview

    It was very relaxed. The woman was very friendly and I expected to be nervous but she made me feel much better and it was very calm. Asked very simple questions and was very laid back. Super simple interview and I got hired on the spot. Honestly I read a lot of reviews online beforehand and it had me really nervous but the most simple and best thing to do is just always be yourself. They don't want anything to seem rehearsed or planned. They want to get to know you as a person to make sure that you're a good fit for their shop. So be yourself and answer everything truthfully..they'll know and respect you more for it,

    Interview

    Applied online, got a call around 2 weeks later. Was called to be interviewed at a far away location then when I got there she told me it was actually to a closer one. Interview took place in the lobby. The interviewer was friendly, although she acted kind of patronizing when she found out I was only 17. They ask you to do subtraction the long way so be ready for that (does this place not have cash registers...?)

    Interview

    I made an online application last week on monday. I got a call on thursday for an interview on saturday. The Interview went well but is it normal to have the manager tell you that if you don't get a call back by monday don't be upset if you didn't get the job......never had that happen in my life of doing interviews and I've done 3 got refused those 3 so I'm hoping this will be good. The questions were basic questions but mainly speaking about my past job experiences and what i had to do and my schooling.

    Interview

    I applied in person in the morning and by the afternoon I got a call for interview. The manager was not that friendly and just asked directly my avalible time and past relative experience. After knowing I didn't have any sandwich experience, he asked me how many hour did I need for training, which is out of my expectation. I ansewerd 2 hours, since I thought it's not hard to learn to make a sub and I've consumed more than 100 subs by that time.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Subway (Vancouver, BC) in August 2013.

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email a few days later. I was asked to bring my resume to the store for a short interview. The interview briefly talked about the tasks and how they hope I would stay for a long time because it wastes their time to keep training new employees. It also included a few questions about my availability but no scenario questions. Training will not be paid and there are no documents to sign. I just had to show up in a week to begin training and it does not guarantee the job.
