Good experience
When I was working there I learnt how to deal with customers and taking order.A part from that I increased my self-confidence as well as I became more self-independent.

Fun and weird workplace
In day-to-day work, I needed to serve customers, make their sandwiches, and collect their money as a cashier.
Serving needed to be extremely efficient, e.g. serving each customer within 1.5 minutes.

The manager organized all the product handling, inventory storage, staff roster, etc.

The manager has a role to override all the controls.
Pros
free drinks

Has a few perks
It all depends on your management and franchisees. The pay is very low at the one I worked at, the supervisors are on minimum. If you got busy you were borderline screwed creating a domino effect. There was one shift I worked where from 8:30 am til about 2:30-3:00 with no breaks. Personally I would not work there again.
Pros
Free post mix drinks and half price 6 inches
Cons
little to no breaks

Productive
A typical day at work is helping and prepping the food, making sure everything is prepared for the restaurant, also being able to be in a tidy manner. I had learnt how to serve customers, how to speak to others in a polite and appropriate way, how to cook and also how to work under pressure. management was really amazing and helped with situations that needed to be dealt with. Hardest part of working was working alone when i had first started. The most enjoyable part was how to cook and prepare for big functions and gatherings. Gave me a good customer service skills.
Pros
Discount Sandwhiches
Cons
Long Hours

reliable job
Its a pretty strict work place as they have lots of regulations, the best thing about it is who i get to work with and who i get to meet everyday. A typical day at work would be around 80-160 customers a day; stocking up front and making sure shop is clean.
For most shifts we work by oursleves expect the busy hours of 11am-2pm and 4pm-6pm.
Pros
half price discount
Cons
flexible hours

Great way to build Customer Service Skills
Working at Subway was a great experience, through dealing with customers constantly, and learning about the proper food handling. I have worked at a few Subways and have seen how some teams excel, while some management are unsure how to work with their employees.

It was a good introduction to the coorprate world.
Travel, evaluate, travel, evaluate, each visit was a different challenge.
I learned about learning... and how to run a evaluation.

I was the only consultant for a while and then they added a operations manager plus another consultant just before I resigned.

The hardest part of this job was to talk to owners on a level that they understood. Once you have it though it all turns to gold.

Learning and helping run the conferences would have to be the most enjoyable parts of this job.
Pros
Driving around that wonderful country. Loved the CEO's enthusiasm
Cons
Sometimes up to a week away from home and friends. Got use to it though.
