Sandwitch Maker (Former Employee) – Belmont – 20 June 2014
My typical day at work was fun. I come in with a good attitude. I learned a lot and know more then I ever did. I learned how to work hard. Management was great! My co-workers were so nice! I loved coming in and seeing them. We all worked hard and at the end of the day we all were good friends! The hardest part of my job was not succeeding in what I did. If I did something wrong I always would go and fix it ten times better then I did the first time. If a customer was not happy with his or hers order I would go back and make them a whole new one with no problem. The best part of my job was seeing the customers happy. I love making other people smile , and seeing them happy with what I did was always the best part of the day.
Shift Supervisor (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 1 December 2016
Subway was a great place to learn how to be an employee it teaches you time management skills and forces you to work as a team on the assembly line. The people are very nice and the managers are very forgiving at least where i worked. However the pay is absolutely terrible and very little room for pay raises at least with the owner of my store. the only way to break $20,000 was to become a manager and that was maybe an extra 200 a week for 4 times the responsibility. The best part of the job was becoming good enough that most of the work became a cakewalk whereas the hardest part would definitely be disciplining newer workers.
Subway Sandwich Artist (Former Employee) – Duncan, BC – 22 March 2017
I was trained to work all positions from bread maker to prep to just front for customer service and a closer. I learned to work in a fast paced environment. and found ways to work faster and get the job done. prep and bread we are on a time crunch. when I opened I had to do my bread making and also help customers on my own so I had to balance everything out. I sometimes would get a line and it would be just me and I handled the situation well and customers were impressed and happy. i enjoyed talking with customers and making a great meal for them.
Supervisor (Crew Leader) (Former Employee) – Windsor, ON – 8 February 2017
subway is one of, if not THE leading sandwich franchises in Ontario, a typical day at work was always fast paced, busy, and fun. Most customers just need a smile to make their day. You must be very vigilant about health codes, and sanitation procedures, as you would be in an environment that if this areas are not monitored closely, you could cause someone to get sick. The hardest part of the job at subway , in my experience, (Some Franchise owners may be different) was the lack of full time hours, and the bare minimum wage. I was a supervisor, and still made minimum wage after being promoted, there are no benefits, and we were not allowed to work more then 7 hours a day.

Sandwich Artist (Former Employee) – Wallaceburg, ON – 3 March 2017
I worked here for a short period before I decided to quit. They go through a lot of employees. Management was horrible. Worked overtime, a lot. People who worked there for years made minimum wage, no raises. And they like to schedule youth for shifts 7pm to 3am. Sometimes I wouldn't get home til 4:30am-5am. Dealt with a lot of drunk people, cleaned a lot of urine on the floor in the bathrooms. Disgusting.
It was a job
Long hours, cleaning up urine, horrible management, no raises
Subway Sandwich Artist (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 14 November 2016
- I open five days a week from Monday to Friday. I usually arrive work at 5:30am and I start preparing everything for lunch, it is usually busy. - I learned how to establish a good working relationship with customers, communicate with customers, to be responsible during work, and to be organized and on time for everything. - I work with my manager everyday, it is very fun to work with her, we do everything as a team work. - The hardest part of working in subway is doing everything by myself, I come in the morning and start cutting vegetables, preparing meat, baking bread, changing all the containers, and cleaning. - the most enjoyable part of subway is to interact with different customers, making customers happy with my service; that is our restaurant goal.
Sandwich Artist (Former Employee) – Rimbey, AB – 1 December 2016
It was my second job I had when I was the right age to start working back in the day. Management was good i enjoyed it. I was always opening the store and i would come to work and work with other employers that called and said the other worker was hiding in the back not helping and just eating. I would go and tell the lazy worker to go home and help out whoch i got a raise for doing and was looked at to be a manager at the time.

Sandwich Artist (Former Employee) – South Porcupine, ON – 2 February 2017
good place to get basics of work ethics, but they need benefits and better salary for the work they ask to be done. They should offer discounts to employees as they are already a high profit organization and competitive wages . at least $14.00 an hour would be a good wage and make the staff reliable and consistent.
Sandwich artist, Dishwasher, and Janitor (Former Employee) – London, ON – 15 February 2017
During the beginning of my time at Subway, it went pretty well, mainly because I had good colleagues to work with, but as time went on, many of those people left the establishment, leaving it with an empty feeling and a lot of boring, unenthusiastic people. I have also had other friends who have worked at Subway, and they expressed they same feelings that I have.
Sandwich Artist (Current Employee) – Devon, AB – 9 March 2017
Love the people I work with its a fun environment. Whenever I was up for a raise they always gave my manager and I the same answer "you make to much". Worked there for 6yrs with 2 yrs of maternaty leave and only recieved 2 raises. The second raise we only because of minimum wage going up.
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Merritt, BC – 6 December 2016
I started out as a sandwich maker. I learned the ropes of the business and then advanced to supervisor. Being that I was there for 2.5 years I was given full benefits with dental insurance. Excellent training was provided which instilled confidence in me to proceed to the next level of supervisor.
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Palmerston, ON – 3 December 2016
Very busy and fast paced environment. When a good team is hired on things can be really fun and restaurant can run top notch. Working as a student I received full time during the summer and was able to work in other Subways under same owner. Lots of room for advancement and manager type rolls.
Subway Sandwich Artist (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 2 December 2016
long hours no employee benefits co-workers are so helpful management is so stressful nice atmosphere to work I've learned to how to tackle with bad situation in a good way how to provide good customer service
Subway Sandwich Artist (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 16 March 2017
It was a fun job and good co-workers but the salary wasn't worth the job that has to be done to satisfy the manger. The schedule for every week wasn't making sense with the shift leaving and coming in.
MANAGEMENT/ SERVICE REP (Former Employee) – Cobden, ON – 22 February 2017
A typical day at work would be doing inventory and delivery paperwork. Making sure all product is made fresh per day and product is stocked in sandwich unit and back up is done. The most enjoyable part is knowing the customer is happy with their experience. The management part of my job consisted of making sure all employees were scheduled as requested and all employees followed the proper procedures when prepping food and assisting customers. Hardest part of the job was having to write a employee up for discipline reasons as this was a small town location.
Fun place to work with but salary is not competitive
Food Counter Attendant (Current Employee) – Spruce Grove, AB – 7 June 2016
Subway First Avenue store is a fun place to work and we have a lot of regular customers that keeps coming back because they said they like our excellent service. One of the things I learned at Subway is that how we manage and lead the store. I can say that the management are working hand in hand to lead and guide their staff. My co workers are amazing and they have a team work especially when we get busy during lunch time. Hardest part of the job maybe if there is a call sick person and nobody can replace her/ his shift. Every single day of my job in Subway was enjoyable.
