What is the daily life of a Subway worker?

I was curious as to what it is the daily life of a Subway worker as it’s a job that works with food so maybe one day I would like to see if it would be nice to work there.

Griffin’s Answer

I used to work at a Subway. In the morning, employees would spend some time getting the restaurant ready. While it might differ from location to location, lunch times (~11am-2pm) were our busiest times, and every employee would be in the front, ready to make the sandwiches. After lunch, we would usually spend the afternoons washing dishes, cleaning, and preparing for the next rush, while serving any customer(s) who came our way. At night, we would begin shutting it down, while making sure the restaurant was ready for the next day.

From my experience, the job almost always required its employees to be doing something, and there wasn't a lot of "down time." Again, this might be different at other locations.

Hi Taryn!

One can always keep busy working in a kitchen! There is always something to do! Ordering supplies, making the bread, keeping the ingredients stocked and fresh. And then there's the dishes. Although rewarding, working in a kitchen is hard work! And I haven't even mentioned the customer yet! Dealing with the public takes everything to a whole new level. Overall, dealing with customers is rewarding. However, you can't please everyone 100% of the time. And there are some people that are just unreasonable. With that said, communication skills are key! And knowing your menu backwards and forwards is a necessity!

Do you like to keep busy? Some Subways are extremely busy! However, some are not. If you happen to work where business is slow, it can be boring.

Things you can do to prepare is work hard in school. I've mentioned communication skills. Math and reading are also very important when working in a kitchen and working with the public.

I hope this helps!

Hi Taryn,

I have not worked at a Subway, but I worked for Domino's Pizza when I was in college. As with any restaurant or food service career, I feel customer service is so very important. You will meet all types of people and personalities.

As Mark shared, you can't please everyone all the time so having great communications skills, patience and flexibility is important.

I've also worked in retail sales and customer service. I feel working in the food and service industries helped me become more organized, work under pressure and learn a lot about how to work with people.

Stop by a Subway location and ask to talk with a manager or see if you might be able to shadow someone for a look into the business.
