Unpaid training with one of staff member who had only been working at subway for two weeks before me. Very unorganised. Left to open and close stores countlessly by yourself even employees under 18. Not enough staff to keep up with lunchtime rush.
This was my very first job and it was terrible. My boss was not professional at all, she’d talk to me about other staff members that she didn’t like and I was never paid on time. The work itself is enjoyable and preparing the food isn’t hard at all, but it all depends on who you’re stuck working with.
I was lied to constantly, told I was going to get more money than I did, they wouldn't let me read my contract when I was signing it. Never got the ours i needed, there was times I wasn't making any money on shifts because of the travel cost and that it would only be a 3 hour shift.
The employees there where great, but there was no manger, no fire exit, fly problems and when a team member became ill, it was ignored. The area manager did not send employees that were sick home, rather have them stay and throw up out back.
i would get in for around 11am before it started to speed up during rush hour from 12am till 1pm, at this point we could serve anywhere from 20 to 100 customers. After this we would begin to clean up around the store and then get ready for after school customers, witch is usually fast pace but bearable if your on your own. all in all the experience of working at subway was really enjoyable and a great learning experience.
it heavily depends on where you are located, because every manager works their store differently. Some places are extremely stressful, overworking and underpaying, whereas others are quite fair and enjoyable. It's pretty much a coinflip. Good luck
Waterloo rd Blackpool do not buy from here selling outdated food the owner is abusive the story is on Google report sent to licencing bully manager do boycott this shop at once now do not buy the staff are mistreated
This was my first job after college and it was perfect for introducing me to the working world and meeting new people. The teams are small enough that you become close to all your colleagues and you learn alot of skills that can be used in many careers further on.
My only complaints come from how certain franchise owners can treat staff sometimes. They have a habit of prioritizing profits over things such as quality of training. Most of the time they are fair to work around your life with your work schedule however

Subway is a place to work for a hard working and quick thinking individual. it is full of lovely workers thet will help you every step of the way. if you are looking for a Safe, friendly and hard working environment this is for you.
Management have been great especially when I’ve needed time off for exams or personal reasons. Staff are very friendly and never had any problems. If you’re looking for a part time job while studying, it’s perfect. Only two issues - they pay minimum wage (even if you are a key holder) and as it’s a zero hour contract you could have 20 hours one week and the next you could have hardly any.
Free six inch sub on your break, free drinks, very easy to get time off
A typical day at subway would be quite relaxed not overly busy so stuff could be done I learned a lot about food handling and hygiene also the importance of working in a team the hardest part of the job for me is the busy days of nonstop customers
Gain experience with customers and on the importance of a team and food health and hygiene
I worked at subway for 4+ years and got no where in the company. With the false promise of being able to climb the ladder it turns out you can only do that when you're good friends with/ related too the people in head office.
Got so overworked doing jobs that a manager should be doing and working 50/60+ hours a week that I had a breakdown and was told to leave my problems at home.
0 hour contracts which are standard as is minimum wage mean that even when you're ill and can't work you are guilted into working or you can't afford to take a day off.
