Reviews for Subway

Reviews - What employees say

3.48 Employees say
1.72 Applicants say

Company Culture

There was a lot of blatant racism in my shop that made me very uncomfortable

Support from management

Sometimes I would, other times requests would be ignored

Teamwork

There wasn't really anything of the sort. If there was a bad employee everyone would just gang up on them until they were gone.

Freedom to work independently

You were definitely expected to be pretty independent and people would even be alone for hours

Internal Communication

Manager communication was nonexistent because the owner never really came to the store and the manager was only there 2 or 3 days a week

Gender Equality

There was only one guy at my store, so sure

Attitude towards older colleagues

We had a few older employees and they were treated the same

Career Development

The only 'next step' would be to open a franchise

Overall compensation for your work

Started at a decent rate, but think I deserved more for all the effort and time i put in

Office / Work Environment

There were a few a.c. problems, but they got fixed in a decent timeframe

Environmental Friendliness

So much trash and waste. But we did recycle cardboard

Work-Life Balance

Schedule accommodations were poorly handled simply because we didnt have enough staff to cover everyone

Company Image

Definitely could have done without the racism, but the company as a whole is fine i guess

Job Security

Too much rotation of staff

Handicapped Accessibility

As a customer, sure, as an employee however more things could have happened

Workplace Safety

Minimal safety training, multiple workplace injuries while I was there

Challenging Work

Making sandwiches is easy enough, but as the opener there was a lot more to do every day

Inclusive / Diverse

The year I was there we only hired one PoC, and while management acted supportive of disabilities there were never any attempts at reasonable accommodations

Suggestions for improvement

  • More regulated training, new equipment,anti fatigue mats should literally be in any standing workplace. Speaking of standing, however, there should definitely be an area in the back to sit down for a few.

What I like about the company

I really liked the job when I started. We had a decent staff and lots of regulars. I liked making sandwhiches and figuring out new combos. Learning to open was a great opportunity.

What I dislike about the company

I think that training could have been more regulated and monitored instead of just being on the last hire to figure out. I think that they are starting do replace old outdated equipment which will be a good fresh start.

Teamwork

I agree with this very much

Freedom to work independently

I do not agree. My boss would always be over our shoulders watching to make sure things were being done correctly.

Internal Communication

I think this is pretty accurate.

Gender Equality

We actually rarely had male employees

Attitude towards older colleagues

We had older employees also

Career Development

I had 2 promotions in my 5 years working there. I also remember being told they liked hiring people from within the company.

Overall compensation for your work

I was given multiple raises. I wouldn't even have to ask my boss for a raise, we were given an evaluation after 6 months, which if you were a good employee you received a raise. Then after that you would get a raise after every promotion and then again af

Environmental Friendliness

We had a recycling bin as well as a trash can.

Work-Life Balance

I also don't agree too much with this, when my boss found out I was doing night classes, he expected me to start working full time. I had no intentions on being full time but I was pushed into it.

Company Image

I do enjoy my current job more than Subway.

Workplace Safety

They had a very extensive training program. They also continued to train old employees. We had a course called Subway University, other places I've worked never took their online training courses seriously. At Subway they are taken serious and you continu

Challenging Work

I was a manager so I had more responsibility than a regular employee, but the job isn't too challenging.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would like to see corporate implement a policy where they rotate inspectors within the company. I feel like my boss had problems because the inspector didn't like him. If they were to have a different inspector come in every month they wouldve caught th

What I like about the company

This was my first job. I was with them when I turned 16 until I was 21. When I started college, I had a limited availability. It was never held against me! I was very stressed at this time in my life. My boss noticed and called me into his office. He talk

What I dislike about the company

This is actually a corporate part. I think that still counts though. Subway corporate would come and do monthly inspections. These inspections,while I understand they were nesassary, I believe the franchisees were being expected to meet impossible standar

Company Culture

Most people working here had a "do not care" attitude. But I guess that goes with making minimum wage.

Support from management

Yes. Management will help you do your job properly.

Teamwork

Not really. At this pay grade, there's only so much that can be expected.

Freedom to work independently

Pretty trustworthy, but there were incidents where money or other things came missing.

Internal Communication

Communication was okay. But at times certain information would not get passed on to the next shift.

Gender Equality

A very diverse place to work.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Very fair. Had a lady in her late 60s that worked there, and they were good to her.

Career Development

They tell you there is, but everyone usually stays where they started.

Overall compensation for your work

Not at all. Minimum wage with no benefits made this place good for only pocket change.

Office / Work Environment

Did great here.

Environmental Friendliness

Not at all. No recycling at all.

Work-Life Balance

I worked part time so there was a decent balance

Company Image

Not at all. Bad pay, bad hours. The schedule was never the same. They can't really keep employees very long. People often quit after a couple of months.

Job Security

Not at all. Ended up quitting because there was no room for advancement.

Handicapped Accessibility

Not for employees but had all that was needed for handicap customers.

Workplace Safety

Top notch. If one gets hurt working here, they weren't paying attention.

Challenging Work

It was pretty simple. Making sandwiches can be pretty easy. It only go difficult when it got super busy.

Inclusive / Diverse

So so. They were kind of Ridgid in this area.

Suggestions for improvement

  • This isn't a bad place to work if you need extra money. The staff is usually friendly. But there isn't much else. But it's a pretty safe place to work. Not a lot of dangers. My only complaint is lack of decent pay and not benefits or holidays.

What I like about the company

It is a laid back environment. The co workers are usually nice and work well together. Plus the job is a lot less stressful than most other fast food restaurants. The menu is pretty simple and it's hard to really mess up an order. It's a good job for a hi

What I dislike about the company

The pay, or lack thereof. The hours: You only get hours if others don't show up. And that leads to being called in to work out of the blue. So if you had other plans be ready to either tell the manager you can't come in, or forfet the plans you had. There
