Former EmployeeWorked at subway in Grand rapids.

What I like

I liked the team i had

What I dislike

The lying, no transparency, they say 1 thing and do another. I started gettung bullied by my assistant and my boss watched the cameras and saw i wasnt lying and he demoted me, took all my hours away, but the assistant manager that was bullying me is still making money

Suggestions for improvement

A new GM that isnt trying to screw everyone over

Company Culture

Very disonest company

Work-Life Balance

Overall compensation for your work

Horrible pay

Workplace Safety

Its a hostile environment, the assistant manager bullies people he dont like, rude to customers as well

Teamwork

The employees are team oriented and willing to help out

Support from management

I believe management set me up to demote me, put extra money in a deposit so it looked like i was stealing from customers. I didnt even work the day there was extra money in deposit. I was off all weekend

Challenging Work

Job was so easy, not a challange at all

Job Security

Zero job security, they tell you 1 thing qnd than do another. They make up lies and manipulate people

Internal Communication

They lie a lot, come up with reasons to fire or demote people, if they cant find a reason they set you up.

Freedom to work independently

They dont care about your ideas
