It fun to work at subway
Customer Service (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON21 April 2017
It's a good place to experience the multi-culture environment, although some customers are impatient, eccentric, frustrated would blame you for nothing. They just want to release all that tension on someone.

Subway team is very supportive and provide proper guidance when needed. I am quite satisfied.
Pros
effective customer service
Cons
not enough working hours

Subway Sandwich Artist (Former Employee) –  Windsor, ON19 April 2017
Really loved the staff and the actual job itself, but the management was not good. We were forced to close the store alone and the hours were not flexible at all, they did not care about other commitments or school. Manager was not willing to work, if the manager was better, this would have been a very good job.
Pros
free lunch, fun job
Cons
poor management

Lots of great people and customers
Sandwich Artist/Cashier (Current Employee) –  Owen Sound, ON18 April 2017
the employees are great however the management does not do their jobs and they refuse to talk to employees about issues. Also will cut hours if they want you to quit in order to not have to find reasons to fire you.
the rest of the job is amazing though
Pros
great customers

horrible management

Decent Workplace
Sandwich Artist (Former Employee) –  LaSalle, ON14 April 2017
Pretty decent job, very simple. Worked part-time for a summer. The job is good, the environment just depends on who you are working with. Once you get good at making sandwiches the job becomes very easy.

Sandwich Artist (Current Employee) –  Aylmer, ON11 April 2017
A typical day at work can be stressful but being able to work with our unique and loyal customers can be rewarding and working 8 hours allows you to manage the store yourself and complete tasks as you see fit.
