Interesting workplace, nice coworkers
Sandwich Artist/Cashier (Former Employee) – London, ON – 25 May 2017
On a typical day at Mr Sub, I would go into work, wash the dishes in the back, bring everything up from the fridge that they need at the front (ex. lettuce, tomatoes, etc.), and I would start making subs for people, bagging bread, and prepping trays of steak, tuna, grilled chicken, and more.
I learned a lot of multi-tasking skills at Mr. Sub. How to interact with a customer and make food at the same time, how to read people's lips because the glass was so high that I could nearly never hear what the customer was asking for, and how to prep and make subs.
The management at Mr. Sub was sub-pare, if you will. The manager was certainly NOT a people-person, and often brought her issues to work and took them out on the employees. At one point, six people quit in under two months.
The hardest part of the job was staying calm when customers insulted me. Once, a customer commented on my complexion, saying that I should buy a high-tech skin-care treatment. I smiled at her and said I was working on it, and once she left, I removed myself from the front of the store to calm down, doing work in the back.
The most enjoyable part of the job was making friends in the mall. Many people who worked in the mall would eat at Mr. Sub every day, and I got to know their names, and memorize their orders.
Hostile work environment
