Why did you leave your job at Subway?

23 answers

Poor management, The manager acted and dealt with things like a child. Expected staff to not make any jokes on the job whatsoever. Inner circles within the staff, slander from other staff which could’ve easily been proven wrong but they decided to just believe the other person due to their seniority. Did not keep up with their coronavirus cleaning checklists. Not to mention the pay is borderline slave labour

I left this company within a week of starting. I had very little training and was suddenly given a key four days into my first week and told I had to do the opens on my own from 5:30am - 10:30am. I wasn’t told what went into each sandwich, didn’t know how to do temp checks, how to do the bread count, what cleaning chemicals to use etc. There was no training at all! As someone who has been a supervisor in previous jobs I was shocked, I would never train anyone like this.. I didn’t even know how to use their till system!

I was also told to do the lates which you have to work on your own from 5pm to gone past midnight. As a girl this terrified me and I didn’t feel safe, so when I said this to the manager, baring in mind I also don’t drive, I was told, “Well that’s what street lights are for.” We have a nightclub next to us and the bouncer for the store left.. that’s scary lone working in that situation.


You never see management, they’re always upstairs.


Rubbish hours, even worse pay. Had all I worked for taken away from me as it was for my ‘training’, so I’ve really struggled this month. Luckily I have a new job to go to, one where everyone is a team and works together.

I left Subway due to poor management and management favouritism. I was on a zero hour contract my manager said I'd definitely get the hours then I didn't get the hours at all. I basically worked really hard and got no thanks at all, I mainly did all the cleaning when nobody else could be bothered to my Manager was lazy and wouldn't serve customers just sit in the prep room until it was her time to clock off. There is no benefits and if you really value your mental health I would really avoid this place because it will either make you or break you it definitely broke me. Staff would bully each other and talk about each other on a group chat ones who had left employment they would talk about constantly hounded to go in to cover people and literally no social life at all. I was really reliable and turned up to work early and did my job people who did a rubbish job got favoured before me which I don't see the logic in.

I went for the job in one of the subway in Swansea. They took me and told me I have to do training before joining them. The training was unpaid that they didn’t notified me. However. On the name of training I just washed the trays and cleaning. after the training they said me we only take under 25 people as they can save labour cost. The subway franchises are worst then any other job places. Do not recommend to do free training. As most of them are fraud.

I had moved out of the area and handed in my 2week notice and had told my manager at the Rawtenstall subway I had no issues with travelling back and forth until my notice was over... Next thing I know I was removed from the group chat and taken off of the work rota without even being told and left with no wages for that 2week notice period, when I messaged the manager of the shop I was spoken to like a piece of dirt and his words were "I am the manager and I decide who gets the hours"

I can leave this job because salary is not enough.

If you were ill you had to sort out the shift you were missing yourself, perform countless managerial tasks without any perks, work long hours alone, lock up alone, etc. Terrible, unsafe conditions. Can't have a single off without work trying to contact you. Minimum wage for maximum effort. The stress just wasn't worth it.

Diabolical wage from the Accrington store...not enough hours given due to favouritism from the manager and when I handed in three weeks notice I was put on no rota for my notice period so had no wage

Simply not worth the money. No benefits, not competitive and its the exact same thing everyday.
