Was a fun but serious working environment which made coming to work enjoyable
I learnt how to work in a fast pace environment, learnt how to prepare the food, change the drink machines, how to operate the till and do cash drops.
Management was really helpfull with training etc.
Co-workers we all got along well and hung out after work.
There wasn't really anything hard about working at subway.
The most enjoyable part of the job was getting to know the regular customers to the store and being able to get their order ready for them for quick service.
dealing with different people.
baking bread and cookies.
opening and locking up building.
flexibility of working hours.
plenty of staff.
management were dodgy and staff were let go.
It was great working in subway snce one and half year. I have got to know and learn so many things about nz people and nl culture while workng in subway. I have become more confident in talking with multi-culture people. More over i have got great experience woking in such fast food company.
I learned so much from this job, how to make a sandwich properly, how to do things properly!! My co-workers were ok, some a bit rude! but rest ok. the hardest part was when it was busy and there would be only two people on.
Manager (Former Employee) - Botany Downs - 14 August 2014
Subway was a great place to be at for me at that time of my life. I learned plenty about myself in personal environment and at work. At Subway I had my first supervisor role and learned to manage a store, look after senior and junior staff as well as build a rapport with my customers as well as suppliers.
I basically started my day by going to the store an hour before opening and start baking the bread, filling up the fridges to make sure everything is set for the day, do the till and start preparing the veggies for the afternoon shift. Then I open the Store at 7 am and that's when customers starts coming and ordering,
at that point I start looking after customers orders and make sure everything is handled smoothly and efficiently.
I also looked after my staff's health and safety and made sure that they always felt protected in their work environment.
Subway was an amazing experience that I truly cherish.
Awesome learning and working experience, working at 4 subway restaurants over 3 years collectively under the best management with like minded people. Enjoyable part was having happy and satisfied customers who always returned. Hardest part dealing with workers who just wouldn't blend to what was required.
it was fun at work, easy to open and close the store,
learnt a lot how to communicate with customers and handle them in a professional way.
co-workers were nice and helpful.
hard part of the job is not having enough staff when required and result loosing customers.
enjoyable part of the job was when you serve the customer with best attitude and making them satisfied with our service.
This was a good environment to work. Had an awesome boss who looked out for all of us. Co-workers were mostly students which could be hard at times, being the only full-time staff member. There was no real management which was hard but we managed majority of the time, Loved the customer service part of the role. Dealing with customers was fun and I really enjoyed building relationships with regular customers.
This was a great workplace, everybody was best friends and the owners were very friendly and easy to talk to. I really enjoyed working here but after two and a half years I felt it was time to move on because there was no advancements for me to make. I felt it was not helping me work towards a career which is what I want. I need to be challenged in the workplace !
Small Staff Discounts, Friendly Team! Great Bosses
Late Shifts, sometimes working alone at 9pm... Felt a bit unsafe sometimes
I have always taken pride in my work, I love to work and I have always attempted to go work when I am required and called in.
I have gained and build confidence around new people because at work I meet new people almost everyday and achieved in communicating skills and created a good relationship with regular customers.
I have never came to work late, always been there before time. I come half an a hour before and start my start even knowing I wont be paid for starting early but I do not waste time.
at first communicating with people i found hard but after I gained confidence it was not hard anymore and I started enjoying and took pride in my work.
