Almost a 5 star
They are a pretty good company to work for specially if you are a high school student just getting into the working community. Otherwise their compensation and benefits is poor, if you are trying to support kids, dont work there.

Good start for customer service
It is very good start for teenagers who don’t know what customer service is. Also how work in the kitchen learning about hygiene. How to deal with customers and learning about cash handling situations. Making right choice front of customers.

Depending on the management of the place. If they are good and well maintenance it is worth the working place. Depending on the area they will pay well also.

Sub artist/ Manager
Created a positive atmosphere by greeting customers upon entering establishment and providing a pleasant and friendly shopping experience. Received payment by cash, check, credit cards, and automatic debits, maintaining all cash and media. Assisted in processing and replenishing merchandise, monitor floor stock, and ensure establishment is organize, clean, and inviting. Observed and followed all policies as they relate to customer confidentiality.

Shift Leader | Tuscumbia, AL | Jun 21, 2019
Great customers and fun-loving coworkers. Procedures on food prep and prices changed a lot
Most of the employees cared about customer satisfaction. The managers were either complacent or immature, so low morale was the norm. This Subway was owned by Love's Travel Stops, so any interest in a management position was capitalized upon by the managers. This store was open 24 hours, so schedules were flexible.
ProsFlexible schedule
ConsLack of competent leadership

Good first job
I learned a lot on food safety and improved my customer service skills greatly. My co-workers were really helpful when I was shy and trying to remember the many different types of Subs. The environment was always clean and uplifting.

overall working at subway was easy and very much dependant on customer intake
I enjoyed working for subway because the hours weren't excruciating or lenghty, my job was never too demanding physically , and i was allowed to be trained in more than one area of the establishment

Sandwich Maker | Dyer, IN | Aug 24, 2018
Good job
All shifts at Subway are repetitive, so it ends up being a good, easy, stress free job. It's even better if the workers all work together and have good attitudes.

What is the work environment and culture like at Subway?
Asked Feb 25, 2016
Subway is a teenage workplace. Many call in sick and many dont show up for their shifts. Not having a manager for the time I have worked there everything tends to fall onto me and I am not the manager. District managers dont really care about anything and only act when the owners are involved. Lots of favoritism and It is just a drama filled situation. Ignore all of that and the job itself isnt bad. Laid back and calm until lunch rush or dinner rush. Hoping that everyone before you did their job and you have enough prep to last through the day. Good job for teenagers. Not so much for people trying to get somewhere after high school.
Answered Dec 17, 2019
I find its unprofessional. Not once have they checked the temperature they just wrtie what ever they please on tempeture logs. Coworkers are rude and unprofessional to each other. Makes for an uncomfortable environment to work in. Secdual is never consitiant. Training differs from person to person. One person tells you to do things one way an another person tells u not to do that way. Very horribile experiance. I needed to the as a in the middel to make money id rather clean up vomit then ever work for this comapny again. Never saw where the tips would go. Unclean practicies. Where is corprate in this to regulate and watch what really goes one. Belitteling emplyess and bedgering them. I cant stress enpugh how Completely unprofessional.
