It was a great job for anyone needing part-time work or temporary full-time. Wouldn't recommend planning to stay because of the low pay and few advancement opportunities (you might become supervisor but not much more). Easy to learn, hands on. Hardest part of the job are difficult customers but the majority are decent. As well, if a customer comes in as you're just about to close it can make clean-up longer at the end of the night (typically don't expect to get out at the end of your shift if it's a closing shift). We also received tips monthly divided among the staff, although it was typically a very small amount.
Pros
50% employee discount, easy to learn, management was great
Cons
rude customers, some late nights closing up

If my manager/owner likes an individual he/she gets more hours. Every four hours I got a 15minutes unpaid lunch break. After minimum wage went up, they became cheap on the break.
Pros
None
Cons
Minimum wage, no paid time off, unreliable hours

Amazing place and it’s always been cleaned in each part of Store. One thing I can say if you used to work in Subway then other tasks would be easy to complete.
Pros
Beneficial to get free food, interaction with customer, can improve speed for listening and making sandwich as well as handling cash too
Cons
Long hours

People at subway are the most friendliest and supportive of new employees. I was a different person when I stated working here, but now i can say i am very confident in myself to be able to work in any company, with anyone, and bringing out the best of myself in front of others.

I suggest to everyone don’t work overtime. Because they always hold your money . And after asking multiple times they are not giving to you. And treating like slaves. Not a worth place for work.
Pros
No free meal
Cons
They are not paying overtime.But forcing to do long hours .

Been working for quite some time now, great environment at work. But be ready to be running, standing, leaning, bending, picking up things as a new employee. Agility is most important

I loved my job here until the new owners took over. Everything is changed now and most of the stuff they do isn't subway standards. You are expected to do more than just your job title. I was a junior sandwich artist and was doing assistant manager jobs for minimum wage because they didn’t hire one.

My experience at Subway was not very good, I felt very stressful during shifts and sometimes we have to extend our shifts without any prior information.

Employer was not good, not treat everyone fairly and was short tempered. Employer start screaming if he/she was not in good mood. Do not work there if you don't want to end up in depression like me

Good place to get experience but ask who the owner is. The one I worked for expected to much for just plain minimum wage. You will be doing the work managers do but no pay raise. Customers where pretty awesome. Coworkers it varies. But the owner didn’t pay well. They’d try and screw you over on your pay cheque. If you are a student or not from Canada they’ll pay you even less and expect you to not go to class to work. If you work over time you don’t get paid overtime. You’ll get 2 different cheques.
Pros
You get tips, if you ban people he has your back
Cons
Long hours, expects a lot for little pay

It is a good experience working in subway as it was my first job I learned a lot many things like fast paced atmosphere so to work quickly , time management, food preparation, communication with costumer. I liked the way subway franchises manage all the goods of the production. A very positive atmosphere to work friendly staff and employees working over there. Overall I can say it is the best experience and job I did.
Pros
Free lunch
Cons
No cons
