Over the past 3 years working at subway I have enjoyed all of it. The staff is always great and acts as a small family. We all have developed problem solving skills and increased our customer service skills. The most stressful part is with making sure everything is as it should be even when its busy, but, with the time management skills that we have learned and developed it is never too much to handle.

Loved working at Subway, as it brought me out of my shyness, and gave me so much experience in working directly with the public. Although, it's not a life-long job, and after 4 years, it gets pretty old and repetitive.

working at subway I deal with a lot of customers and that requires a lot of communication and patients, I have learned how to interact with customers, how to keep them happy so they return to our store, and how to handle difficult situations. I am very energetic and enthusiastic, always smiling no matter how the person on the other side of the counter is. The hardest part would be to deal with unhappy customers but even that can be overcome. what I enjoy most about working at subway is that all of my coworkers are friendly and I am great at what I do.

A typical day was come in a 4:00 and make sure our fridges were stocked. Then I would make subs as they came in while making sure everything was clean and stocked. I learned how to deal with a Bipolar manager and how to deal with some very stupid people who couldn't even comprehend the concept of a sub. Co-workers were either teenagers or people ranging to 60. Most of the people who were stupid or unenjoyable to work with usually got fired so all the co-workers were great. Hardest part of the job was getting people to come in when other idiots would not show up for their shift. The most enjoyable part was definitely the co-workers but there were times you dealt with fun customers who would talk your ear off.
Easy work. Easy co-workers. Easy Boss. Easy life.
dealing with people who are not intelligent or rude.
The job in which you are normally tasked to do involves making sandwiches for customers, which for the most part is without issue. However Subways tends to under staff at crucial times leaving the employees with a steady stream of customers to work with while having their duties to the store prevented.
Minimum wage for work which deserves a slightly higher pay

Enjoyed working at subways, was a wonderful experience, the only thing that was troublesome were the mistreatments after starting to work there, as well as the constant accusations. But other than that it was a good work experience due to my team members.

Subway Sandwich Artist (Former Employee) – Markdale, ON – June 16, 2016
The subway I worked at I Markdale, ON was ok. needed some better management. Less drama. everyone needs to do their job correctly. For example I did the night shift and I had to do veggies and meat as the people before me should have done it before I had came into work. They would leave garbage so full that I could barely lift it out of the garbage bucket.

I worked here for 7 months and it was a blast if you have the right co-workers. The one problem was a change in management and I went from have 4 shifts a week to only 1 shift a week even when i requested for more. Over all fun place to work if you have the right people.
