Subway Manager, in Danville, Kentucky
Being a manager at Subway is rewarding, but can be very stressful.
Manager Job Description
Being a manager at Subway requires you to do many different tasks throughout the day. The first thing that you have to do is open the store. This requires you to come in about an hour before the store opens. You will need to count the supplies left over from the night before, and take inventory of all of the supplies in the store. This is done everyday to ensure that you have enough supplies to satisfy the menu for the customers. If you see that you are running low on something, then you have to place an order for more supplies.
After you count the supplies, you have to type the results into the computer, and print the register receipt from the day before. This receipt shows you how well your store did during the night while you were gone, and shows you if any inventory was wasted.
Your next step is to do all of the prep work. You need to bake the bread, lay out the meat, and make sure that the vegetables are all laid out. By now it should be time to open your store. You will spend the majority of your day fulfilling customer's orders with one or two other employees. This is one job where being a manager does not mean that you do a lot of paperwork, and just supervise your employees. You actually have to get in there with your employees make the sandwiches, keep re-filling the supplies, and check out customers. You will also have to fit in time to make up schedules for your employees, order supplies, unload trucks once a week, keep your store clean, write out any tasks for your night shift employees, and conduct interviews when needed. If you do a good job with all of these tasks, you will get a great review during your quality inspection every month. These inspections can be very rewarding because you could get bonuses, and your store is ranked by your inspection results. However, you have a lot of responsibility, which can become stressful.
Subway Interview Questions
I was interviewed by the owner of the specific Subway store. I was asked how I would handle employees if they were not doing their job correctly, if I could handle busy schedules, and if I would be willing to come in during my off hours to help employees out. This was on top of the basic question where I describe myself, my strengths, and my weaknesses. I wore a business causal outfit that included: khakis, a nice shirt, and brown shoes. The interview was very comfortable. I prepared myself by brushing up on my interview skills, so I was not nervous at all. Brushing up on my interview skills really helped me do a great job during the interview.
Salary and Benefits
Salary - Subway, Manager is $9/Hourly.
There were not any other benefits.
The working conditions were good. You work in a smaller building, but you only work with one or two other people at a time. This is great because you can develop positive relationships with other employees, but it can be a downfall because rumors start easily with only a few employees. You have to keep the rumor mill in check to ensure that everyone enjoys their job. I always felt safe because there were plenty of security cameras in place. The money was always locked up, and it was a small town. You work more with the district manager, and she was a great person. The only thing that could really be done to improve the workplace would be to make sure that there is an older adult for every teenager working. The owner allowed 2-3 teenagers to work together every night. I would have felt better if they would have allowed an extra person to come in on those nights who was a little more mature.
There are a few physical requirements. You are on your feet all day. There is not much time to sit down. You will need to be able to lift 25-75lbs. Especially on days when you need to unload the truck and stock the inventory. Other than these two things, the physical requirements are not that bad.
