Subway

sandwich artist

April - October 2020 • Clearfield, UT

What I liked

It was easy and fairly good hours

What I wish was different

I wish I worked with people who did their job so I didn't have to do two people's jobs at once.

Advice

Do it but don't stay with it super long. Move up the career ladder so you don't get stuck. Subway isn't worth it.

Sandwich Artist

May - August 2020 • Ephraim, UT

What I liked

My coworkers were very nice and most of the customers were too.

What I wish was different

Nothing really. A few customers were rude and impatient here and there, but that's customer service.

Advice

Try to learn quickly during your training. The best way to learn is by doing, and ask questions of people that are experienced (not necessarily the other trainees).

Subway Sandwich Artist

June - August 2020 • Topeka, KS

What I liked

I was needed so I got lots of hours. Easy to pick-up all the skills needed after a week.

What I wish was different

Proper training opportunities were missing. Things you could learn in one day take several. No one ever shadows you to make sure things are done correctly so things are caught when you do them wrong instead.

Advice

It is a good job if necessary and wanted.

Sandwich Maker

May 2020 • Mifflinburg, PA

What I liked

Friendly service, close relations with certain employees, close to home

What I wish was different

More employees -- feels like we never have enough people coming in.

Advice

Wear good shoes -- you're on your feet all the time. And do more than you can -- you never know who's going to slack off.

May - August 2020 • Fargo, ND

What I liked

The coworkers are friendly most of the time, I picked up on the routine decently fast, and the customers are very friendly and understanding most of the time. I actually made a new friend because of working drive-thru one day.

What I wish was different

I mainly wish Covid hadn't screwed with the way I got trained in because I had to learn some things over again and get used to how in-store customer service felt after dealing with only drive-thru for about 3 months.

Advice

Do your best to pick up on the routines quickly, and be able to keep a level head during stressful rush-hours or when dealing with annoying customers.

Fast Food Worker

August 2015 • Ardmore, TN

What I liked

I loved greeting customers, making their food, and doing the cash register! The employees were wonderful, and every day was a great day!

What I wish was different

I wish I had known about this job earlier.

Advice

One advice I would like to share is not to be afraid to seek out opportunities, and be straight forward about what you want.

Restaurant Shift Leader

February 2018 • Belvidere, IL

What I liked

I enjoy the experience I get to learn when working with different people. I also enjoy the feeling of a successful shift and constantly learning about new things that I can do and be as a leader.

What I wish was different

Some shifts were rather exhausting in that if there was ever an issue I would often have to extend my hours greatly.

Advice

Do not be afraid of meeting and getting to know more people.

Sandwich Maker

June 2020 • New Hampton, IA

What I liked

I enjoyed the camaraderie of the employees and bosses.

What I wish was different

I wish I had more opportunities for experience pertinent to my major, but a lot of research opportunities were canceled due to COV-ID.

Advice

I think it's best for students searching for a summer job to find the opportunity with the highest wage - particularly when such experience does not relate to one's major/area of interest or expertise.
