Good pace, fun workplace, easy job.
Sandwich Artist and Cashier (Former Employee) – LaSalle, ON – 20 July 2016
A typical day at work here started with clocking in, washing your hands and taking inventory. If when you started a shift the store was already busy, you'd help move the line along before taking inventory.
The bread steps to making a patron's sandwich included bread proofing, bread baking, bread topping, bread cooling, bread storage, and bread cutting. Every topping had to be pre-prepared same-day in-store. This included fresh meats out of storage, and freshly cut veggies. There was also portioning and toasting the meat and cheese toppings on each kind of sub. Then there was portioning the veggie and sauce toppings according to the Subway mandated chart, unless otherwise specified by the patron. Salads and soups had to be made also. Stocking and cleaning was usually done in the middle and at the end of each shift.
I mostly learned about the science of bread baking, and how to best organize my time and work priorities.
Management was new.
For the most part my co-workers were friendly, approachable and hard-working. A few in particular, however, were very cold, snobby, and inexperienced with building customer report.
The hardest part of the job was being new and having to learn so much so quickly that much got overlooked and skipped over in "training".
The most enjoyable part of this job was the kind and fun atmosphere that the majority of employees gave the store and customers.
