I worked at Potbelly Sandwich Works full-time for more than a year

Pros

Great salary, great training, and it is easy to move up.

Cons

you are on your own a lot.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

spend more time on listening to what the employees need. also it is very cut throat within the company and the district managers need to understand this.

    I worked at Potbelly Sandwich Works part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fun and fast paced environment.Time passes quickly during lunch hours.Good first job.

    Cons

    Low wages for standing on your feet all day.No support mats behind the counter to ease foot pain.Promised a lower management position that never materialized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The wages are ridiculous for the amount of moving around one does.Do not entice quality workers with the prospect of moving up in the company if you never intended to do so.
