I worked at subway a minute now, and most of y'all's bitching is accurate and honest but
Let's be real here..
We make fuckin sandwiches. We do half the work of most normal jobs, and we eat free shit everyday
How in the fuck aren't yall thankful
I get frustrated like everyone else, but I ain't penting it up to the point I bitch about it in an online forum
And I'm glad this thread is dead, I'm glad there aren't any near recent posts
CUZ that shits pathetic
We should be thankful first off we gotta damn job. If you had better options than subway odds are you wouldnt work there so be thankful.
And we should be thankful it's easy as fuck too.
Shit yeah people make dumb comments and ask dumb questions
Where you gonna bitch someone's payin you to listen
Where you gonna bitch someone's giving you a check

I seriously got an account to tell this story.
I didn't know this existed! Finally, people who understand why I get so frustrated. Here's one you guys won't believe. It was the day after New Year's. I was working at 10:00 am with my boss (who is the best boss in the world), and two other co-workers. I have been working here for almost half a year, and my boss was astounded that in the years she'd been working she'd never seen such a customer! Anyway, a college age kid comes in and he asks me to make him a chicken bacon. No problem. He was totally fine, quiet, but fine! We get down to the sauces, and I asked him what he wanted. He told me ranch, but the problem is, I heard someone else talking that said mayo, or something... so I put mayo on his sandwich. He gave me the dirtiest look I had EVER seen and asks me, "is that ranch?" I said to him, "no. I'm so sorry! Hold on a second." I went to scrape it off, to see if I could save the sandwich. He looked mad, so I just said I'd start another one for him. He walked away and says. "I'm not eating that SHIT." He proceeds to walk quickly out the door. My boss shouts, "We can make you another one!" and nope, he cuts her off screaming "fuck this shit." there were small children and a family present. He was so mad, that he managed to swing our door open so hard that he broke the glass and almost completely shattered it. So, basically, he broke expensive glass on a door... over what would have been a free sandwich... over some mayo...
Thank God two of our morning regulars are cops, and happened to come in right as he was getting ready to run off. Current Mood: amused

Is this place alive still?
I have a serious question about th University of Subway. How did you all get paid for it? I've completed 8 of them and have yet to receive payment. Which, as you know, makes me a little angry and less eager to finish them.

I just got done with training for the brand new store #42084
in Sloan, IA (Opens Friday) and while training at #43016
in Elk Point, SD (Both are Kum & Go owned franchises) we had a guy come in for a salad that made the Elk Point general manager (who was already on the line!!!) wash his hands, put fresh gloves on, and make his salad from completely fresh ingredients that the GM had to get from the walk-in cooler!!!

Yeah theres another one :)
I just found this place and my god I can't tell you how much fun/blowing off steam by going back and reading all of the journal(or atlease scanning over them) I have been at my subway for a year and one month now. I love the job and I love my coworkers, but like everything i have ever read so far its the customers that make life a living hell. I now give to you........my subway rants. Sorry if some havebeen posted before
1. Do not get mad at me when I catch your dumb ass stealing. I for one cannot stand that shit on any form or level and believe me when I say I am gonna call you out for it. Probably embrass the hell out of you in the process. (I have done this on several ocassions
2. You knew...........KNEW YOU WERE COMING TO SUBWAY AND DIDN'T HAVE THE VAGUEST IDEA OF WHAT YOU WANTED?! I am sorry, as childish as it sounds it makes a ton of sense. I've had customers stand in line forever thinking about what they want while the line behind them steadily piles up. it really pisses me off its been rather quiet and this asshat ruins everything.
3. Correct change. omg this makes me nuts because it takes out time. People are so damn determined to get rid of their change
4. "I want everything" but when I go to reach for a certain thing I get a really loud "NO I DUN WANT THAT!"
5 I unfortanely have a drivethrough at subway...........and so sometimes we will get customers who will blow their horns to tell us to hurry up. UGH RUDE!
6. "I want the oil and vinigar on this side of the bread and the cheese on this side of the bread etc etc" .....................bitch when I close the sandwich it wun matter!
7. foot long double Meat meatball with everything on it.........nuff said.
8. "well the other subway...." goddamnit not all subways are created equal! Do not complain to me because my store doesn't have a veggie patty!
9. do not complain about the heat. you can leave the store..........we can't stfu plz
10. people who get off to beating the clock(5 mins til closing)
annnnnnnnnnnnnnd I'm gonna shut up. Thanks for reading! *passes out from exhaustion*
oh yeah.....you guys are not alone in this battle against the imbred nutjobs of america! Current Mood: aggravated

God, I love my job.
Today at work this crazy white trash guy came in and cursed at Van, one of the owner/managers.CAG = Crazy Ass Drunk Guy
WTL = White Trash Lady with him
V = VanCAG goes to the bathroom and WTL yells at him, in the most white-trashiest redneck voice you can imagine:WTL:
What do you want to get?!?!?CAG:
Whatever! I don't care, just get somethin'!WTL orders a footlong meatball for herself, then CAG comes back from the restroom.WTL:
So what do you want to get?CAG:
I done told you, I don't care what you git woman! Just gimme a footlong Turkey on white!Van cuts bread, and puts turkey on it.CAG to V:
Put some mayonaise on it! Come on, don't be shy! Squeeze it! Squeeze the damn bottle! Come on gimme more fucking mayonaise!Van throws a dirty look at CAG.V:
Hey bud, don't use bad language ok.CAG:
I got freedom of speech man! I'll say whatever the fuck I want to!V:
There are kids in here, I'm just asking you not to cuss ok?CAG:
I'll say whatever I god damn want to! FUCK!WTL to CAG:
Why you gotta always try to be a comedian? (I don't even know what this even means)CAG:
Fuck! I got freedom of speech! You can't tell me what I can't say!Followed by lots more random cursing. Everyone moves down to the register.V:
You don't have freedom to curse in my establishment.CAG:
You want to take this outside?!?!V: Yeah, sure just let me call the cops first.
White trash people finally grab their food and leave. WTL looks embarrassed, but also looks like she's used to this kind of behaviour from CAG. I'm sure this kind of thing happens all the time. Current Mood: amused

The other day this lady asked me for salt & pepper on her sandwich but she didn't want it from the mixed salt & pepper shaker, she wanted it SEPARATED. WTF?

I was breaking down boxes to take out to the Dumpster today, and found this brand new, never worn t-shirt in a box to be thrown out (needless to say, I brought it home with me!). My store has never used these shirts before, and this was the only one there. Anyone here ever used them before?

So I haven't posted in here in a LOOONNNGGG time, but figured I would....
Is it bad that I am actually CONSIDERING going back to subway for work? Have I lost my mind??? Oh well...One thing I have to say about this though, if you are planning to move, do not, I repeat, DO NOT move to Dayton, OH...there are no jobs here, and that's pretty much the only choice I have now...
At least, no jobs I qualify for...this place is dead... Current Mood: blank

So, uh. Has anyone else recieved the information packets for the "Greatest Contest Ever" contest? With the "free gifts"? My coworkers and I got ours today, and NONE OF US CAN FIGURE OUT WTF THEY ARE.
Well, I mean, it's a clip. Of some sort. It's just that none of us can figure out if it has any sort of purpose besides... clipping it to your belt so you can wear a plastic thing with the Coca-Cola logo? Current Mood: confused

In the middle of lunch, with a big line behind her, this lady payed $27 in QUARTERS
. Twenty-seven dollars worth of quarters.
My boss yelled at me for being rude to her.
|Tuesday, July 31st, 2007|
Does anyone else have to wear those dumb WHITE t-shirts with the red logo on it that says "Add Chips and a Coke?"
I would really like do know what genius figured it would be a good idea to make white Subway t-shirts. I guess we have to wear them during this window, or until they get too dirty, instead of our polos.

Okay! So I just went in today to pick up my check, and my boss handed me a letter. Does anyone remember the survey we had to send in a while ago when the mystery shopper program started? Well, the letter was to tell me that I qualified to win the iPod shuffle (3rd prize.) All I have to is complete the form within 10 days and send it in. Who knows if I'll win. It's just pretty exciting. My boss was pretty happy too.

the worst sunday at subway ever
well i used to be in this community before i left for school, but it turns out i got a job at subway there too, so i'm back. =) here's my story for the day. ( idiot customer causes floodCollapse )
Pretty much the worst day ever... even worse than the 5-hour shift when we did $900 in sales with 3 people on.
|Wednesday, July 25th, 2007|
So I got this phone call the other day:
Me: Subway/TCBY, blahblahblah
Woman: Yeah... where are you located?
Me: Well, we're in (little-town-name)
Woman: Yes, I KNOW that. But where is it located?
Me: Er... well, we're between (other-small-town) and (yet-another-town)
Woman: I KNOW that. But are you near INGLES? (local grocery store, approx. two minutes up the road.)
Me: Oh. Would you like directions from INGLES?
Apparently I'm supposed to have super-telepathic mind-reading powers that allow me to know when a customer would like directions from Ingles. Graargh.
And then a customer this evening was being totally OCD about his cheese.
He had a six inch club, and he wanted extra cheese. Fine. Oh, but wait. He wants the sandwich toasted, but he only wants TWO slices on the sandwich when I toast it, and I can put the other two on AFTERWARDS. Well, okay. So I pop it in the oven, and when it's done I grab his two other slices of cheese. But WAIT! He actually wants me to put lettuce and tomato on FIRST, and THEN put on his two other slices of cheese. So I put on lettuce and tomato on the bread and slap the cheese on top. But WAIT! What he REALLY wanted -- oh, never mind, he guesses it doesn't matter that much, and he supposes that's okay -- but, you know, now that I've asked him what's the matter, what he REALLY wants me to do is put the veggies on top of the MEAT, and put his other two slices of cheese on top of all that.
And then he goes to the register to pay. It so happens that he's also ordered something from TCBY, which is on a separate register. But since he's paying with a card, I can combine the transactions. This typically takes me a minute though, because I need to get the receipt from the TCBY register and add it to the Subway order. But the whole time I'm trying to do this, he keeps making impatient noises and trying to shove his card because I'm obviously being too slow.
Anybody else being having an equally fantastic week? Current Mood: annoyed
