Hello Beaver Local students! I am a manger at the Calcutta Subway located next to Giant Eagle. Our store and the Walmart Subway are in dire need of employees! I would like to share with you some information about Subway and to explain that it is a wonderful job for high-school or college students!
- Customer service
Most of you have probably attended a Subway before at least once in you life. You know that a lot of communicating is involved. We go down the line asking all sorts of different questions, and we like to talk to our customers on a personal level because most of them are regulars. You have to be friendly, cooperative and not afraid to talk loud.
- We are a team
All of Subways workers are close. We act as a team and get the list/shift done together. At Subway you do not only make subs, salads or wraps. You have a list to follow each shift, with things that need done. Such as dishes, sweeping, filling sauce bottles, stocking things, filling the chip rack, cleaning the restrooms and other tasks. Sometimes, when we have busy nights it is hard to get the list done on your own. You should be able to work with your co worker as a team to help complete that shifts tasks.
- Positive attitudes
If you come into work with a bad attitude you cause your co workers to be in a bad attitude. Subway does get busy and sometimes can be stressful when your trying to get your list done. If you and your co worker have a bad attitude that shift will not go easy. The more you stress the more you will get behind. Always come into Subway feeling positive, if you don’t, fake it. For me Subway can take away my stress for a few hours because i can focus on something else.
Subway does their best to work around any sports, school or other work schedules. This is a perfect job if you are in Highschool or college. The unit and district manager will work around the schedule you provide them. We also have a request off book, you write in the day you need off and at least one word explaining why you need that day off. You can also write “am only”, “pm only” or “after 4” if you can either work in the morning or afternoon that day.
- call offs
You can not all off multiple times without a valid excuse. Death of a family member and sickness ( with a dr excuse ) are excused. You can’t just call off because you don’t feel like coming into work that day. Once a week you will have a day that you are “on call” this means if someone calls off that day you will be called into work. You can not say no to a on call. You can risk getting fired if you do not come in. If you are sick or there has been a death it will be excused but you must contact the unit manager and tell him/her so they know not to call you in.
Subway is a great job! Come into the store and grab a paper application or go online!
