    Gets the bills out of the way

    Cashier (Former Employee) London, England

    ProsNone really. I worked for some money to pay the bills and it got the job done. No way to climb the ladder. I guess this is what people are looking for as a student job.

    ConsBoring, drunkards come in too often, the bread baking now makes me sick. I can smell a Subway a mile away now.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

     

    Easy Job but Underpaid

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Pros- As a college student this job suits me perfectly with it's high flexibility
    - The staff are lovely overall
    - It isn't a concern if employees are late

    Cons- It is minimum wage
    - If an employee is in trouble with the manager, our hours are cut completely for minimum of a week
    - It can get boring as it's the same routine every shift

    Mixed Bag

    Sandwich Artist (Former Employee) Leeds, England

    ProsReally good colleagues, straightforward and often rewarding work, flexible hours and generally good store managers, store was normally busy and thus shifts went quickly.

    ConsZero-hour contracts, drunk and difficult customers, little incentive for employees to work harder, franchise unwilling to adequately invest in the store (equipment often broken), little opportunity for career progression (supervisory roles consisted of lots more responsibility for negligible wage increase).

    Advice to Senior ManagementBetter treatment of staff and more effective training would ensure better staff retention and better customer service

    Horrific

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGood staff to work with, nice people in general.

    ConsNeed to take more consideration when picking Managers, one which won't come in mood swings.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLearn to pick your manager and higher up staff better, than someone who has to always be right and come in with different moods and takes it out on the staff. A manager who has okay and bad days is not right at all, they should have more professionalism in the place of work.
