What people are saying about sick pay at Subway

  • Best thing

    some team members, food, discount, not entirely difficult

    Worst thing

    have to always be quick and adapt to high-intensity environments, not that great pay and most of the time don't get paid overtime, delivery drivers are weird, some team members are not that great, breaks are never that long even if ur on a long shift, if you don't stand up for yourself people will take advantage of you.
