How much do subway pay?

Just had a phone call from Subway, just wondering if anyone would know how much they pay? I'm 17.

Im getting trained on Saturday.

Isn't minimum wage for 16 and 17 year olds £3.40 or something? Unless they just stick you on adult minimum wage which wouldn't be too bad

3.53 until you're 18. If your lucky they might give you 4.00p/h

Subway is a franchise, so it might be up to indivisual branches. It'll probably be buttons.

Still a lot better then nothing though.

BOOM!

From what I've heard subway can be a really bad employer, try and talk to some of the current members of staff if you can before you accept the work.

But then money is money and you may want to take it anyway!

Subway in Edinburgh...I went along and was given a job, however was unimpressed at their rate of pay (£3.75 an hour).....I received a letter from Subway head office 2 weeks after I started, stating I was given a job and would be paid a rate of £4.60 an hour.
Wouldn't be expecting too much then but good luck with your fake food training.

4.60 for 18-22

god knows why that person was getting letters from head office, because theyre franchises ran by individuals.

The one in my hometown has decent pay IIRC. Higher than other fast food places, expect £4.50+, unless you do get somewhere who pays you the silly u18 wage(which is a joke tbh).
Theres a few perks too, had a mate that worked there and the biggest perk from that was getting any sandwich for £2 after a night on the raz(a fair few subways are open till 3am fri/sat), even if it was a footlong loaded with allsorts. Much healthier than the usual takeaway and much cheaper.

When i worked in the subway in Rhyl (i was 17/18) i got paid about £5.00 then an extra 50p per hour extra if it was after 10 or some thing like that, then when i was keyholder at 18 i got some thing like £7 which was really nice

Not a bad place to work however it will depend on your boss and who else is working there etc...

I'm quite certain it is minimum wage as i know someone who works for them, also i think you will get paid every 2 weeks as the person i know gets paid every other week from them instead of the usual every 4 weeks everywhere else.

i'd get a job in a pub instead, glass collecting etc for now as you're 17, then work behind the bar when you're 18

will be handy if you plan to go travelleing / uni, as everywhere has a pub

more varied and less droning than working with food




btw, did anything ever come of your Reverend Davidson scam?

This is correct, you also get any subway 6" or footlong meal for £1 (as many as one per day) as a staff bonus. If you always eat at Subway this could save you a vast amount of money

Does this only happen after you work? Or even when you dont work?

Does it also work if your at a different subway at what you dont work at??

I imagine its anytime anyday, though not sure about different subways.
Some people operate their franchises differently to others.
For example theres a one in mboro that has 2x12" for £5 offer on sundays, and there was one in newcastle that did any 12" for £3 or something on wednesdays.. or was in mondays.

It can happen at anytime and in more than one subway as long as its the same owner/employer
