"I worked at Subway for 6 years. The people I worked with, the people I helped and the experience I gained were invaluable and helped mold me into the person I am today."

"Subway is the world’s largest quick service restaurant franchisor and leader in the quick service industry with more than 41,000 restaurants in over 100 countries. While the company is willing to invest in building their digital presence and using the latest technologies, they have struggled in building a sustainable culture causing turnover and instability with their employees."

"The company culture has changed over the years. The CEO that took over has taken the company in a different direction. Aside from that, I loved working there, and all of the folks that I worked with directly. The company became very impersonal and did not have a warm corporate culture."

"I've worked with subway for a year as my first job. The location was in one of those small areas so busy times were a hit or miss but we always had customers in and out as soon as possible so nones waiting to long. The manager there is very nice, she is a lovely lady to work with and is very flexible as long as you are doing your part. The boss of that subway location is also a great guy to work for. He understands business very well and you can learn a lot from him."

Subway Employee

"As a Software Engineer for almost 4 years at Subway (Franchise World Headquarters), I would characterize the work environment as one of uncoordinated chaos. Over the years, there was a non-stop churn of CEOs, CIOs, and acting-C-suite members with significant loss of knowledge and institutional memory. This created a culture of blame and whiplash with inter-team relationships becoming impossibly strained. All of this culminated in mass layoffs, with 45% of the corporate workforce being let go."
