Days at Subway
Sandwich Artist (Former Employee), Nanaimo, BCNovember 8, 2014
Pros: free lunch/ dinner, happy customers, great co-workers, made friends even too! great bosses and super happy environment
Cons: not busy enough, rude customers sometimes, needed more hours to keep up with rent, i did at the time have very bad luck with my immune system shutting down on me a lot of the time.
A typical day at work at Subway was never a super dull moment, most days were long because we did not get a lot of customers coming in because at the time it was summer.
The days it was busy it would go by super fast and I highly enjoy days where its fast paced .
What I learned about working there is how to prep food and how to clean and keep the store tidy . I also learned when food would go bad and different types of formulas for sandwiches.
My co-workers and i ALWAYS got a long and we always tried to make the best of our shifts together. We all worked well together as a team and could even laugh every so often and have a good time while working. We were pretty deadly when it came to making sandwiches on the line and we had amazing team work .
The hardest part of the job was trying to keep with the cleanning and the extra cleaning . Cleaning for me is not the greatest part but I do know it needs to get done and I do my very best when it came to making sure the store is spotless.
The most enjoyable part of the job was being told by customers that they loved walking in and seeing me with a smile on my face because most other stores around never had employees really smile. Also that I have an amazing memory and I should be back in school ( I was pretty good at remembering a customers sandwich) \I was really good at this job and sometimes I do miss it but I know its time to move on and find something new!

managing time and speed
Team Member (Current Employee), 1833 Grant Ave. Winnipeg, ManitobaOctober 31, 2014
Pros: free meal and 50% off on certain items.
Cons: working for hours with no specific timing of break.
I opened the store on Sunday for very first time and thought that this was not going to be busy but suddenly it got got busy. We were only two new employees on the store. We were getting out of breads.Then i called my manager and he and another employee came in and helped us. I learned that time management and speed are very important at work place.
The hardest part of the job on that day was that i had to do two employee's work at the same time that is making the sandwich for employees and doing the transactions.
The most enjoyable part of the job is making sandwiches.

Very productive environment
Sandwich artist (Former Employee), Kanata, ONOctober 29, 2014
Pros: free sub
Cons: long hours
I would start the day by putting the chips and drinks in order and filling them up. I would then proceed to cleaning the tables followed by all the prep work of the vegetables and meats. I learned a lot about cleaning and preparing foods, and serving the customer, as well as controlling the cash. It was a cool and very down to earth management with great people. The hardest part was working during rush hour. I loved having the free sub after my shift though.

Subway
Sandwhich Artist (Former Employee), Cochrane, ABOctober 21, 2014
Pros: costumers who came in loved me.
Cons: no matter how long you work, you only get a 15 minute break.
When I go into work I am always 10-15 minutes early.
I always greet my costumers because honestly how else is your day going to get better other then trying to make others days complete which I enjoy doing because it makes my day more enjoyable.
I would go into work either taking someones order or start prepping the vegetables and the cheese.Then after the lunch rush I would go clean the outside then prep everything again. The least part I like about subway was the workers and the person who owned the shop.
They treated me like I was an immigrant (probably because i am Asian) only gave me one 15 minute break a day when i was working 8-9 hours a day full time.
My mom complained so they started to give me less hours.

Good work environment, love the co-workers, and enjoy my days at work!
Subway Artist (Current Employee), Pictou, NSOctober 11, 2014
Pros: good discount, fairness, good working environment
Cons: not enough hours
A typical day at work would be, go in clock in, start looking around for things you can do, such as cleaning, prep work, dishes, and waiting on customers. I've learned a lot working at Subway for the last four years. It was my first job, and I got to meet and learn everything about the job. I learned that you need to be nice to your co-workers, and the customers, you need to make sure that the customers have the best visit they can have at the store. I also learned a lot of things about food that I didn't know about. I've learned a lot from my co-workers. The hardest part about my job, would have to when it's quite and there's nothing to do! I love my job, and couldn't be happier with it. The most enjoyable part of my job would be making the customers happy, and see them leaving the store with a smile on their face!
