keep editing your post faggot.
get your shit together then come_at_me_bro.jpeg
A free footlong and crisps/drink, any filling, double meat/cheese, as long as you only ate one and only at lunchtime ; pretty much a free £6.50 every day (which was compensated for by the minimum wage and long hours but oh man it was worth it)
I always heard Subway was a horrible place to work? I mean, I heard this from a 19 year old assistant manager with 2 kids who lived in a trailer with half a roof and never paid her bills, but I figured her for legit.My first actual job on a payroll was Boston Market. You would go home smelling of death and vinegar, but by god if they didnt let you take home garbage bags full of cornbread.
The Seafood Sensation sub is, as its name implies, sensational.
Do you have any "unique to the UK" items?
Can I act hipster as fuck for working at a local sandwich shop rather than these soul-crushingly large chains?
Also it helps they have 20 beers on tap and I get half off on drafts.
Death to hipsters. Yay for beer.
"never worked retail" club checking in.
i'm not a douche to salespeople/waiters though.
THE GREATEST POSTER
What I would give to have a damn job this summer...
Blockbuster is a proper gig, if you are a useless fuck with no marketable skills.
You get free movies, and you don't have to go home smelling of chopped onions every night.
Although, I'm not sure if video stores actually still exist.
I remember video stores! There use to be one called West Coast Video around the corner from me. Youd get a free big of popcorn with everyvideo you rented. Loved that place. But, yeah, I think they are all dead.
They are still hanging on in the UK, barely. Most of them have diversified into having a web presence as well. There is still something to be said for going to the store with your SO and picking a movie together by consensus; its probably not the one either of you really want to watch but that's really not the point is it.
Not Dead, Just Sleeping
Reputable franchisors like McDonald's do a lot of work to make sure that a planned store will be viable (e.g. selecting an optimal location , providing training & guidance for future restaurant owners, having high requirements to discourage probably unsuccessful franchisees, ...) whereas Subway has no problem placing new stores very close to existing ones (or in otherwise poor locations) and franchisees are not trained/informed very well prior to the start of their store.
As a result they have an unusually high rate of business failure with their franchisees who apparently often have no prior franchising experience - the initial investment is significantly lower than at other typical fastfood chains (typical total investment around 80,000 - 250,000€, Subway recommends 25,000€ equity -- McDonald's requires at least 500,000€ equity with an equity ratio >= 25%) but the franchise/advertisement royalties are 12.5% of revenue (+ 10,000€ flat) which is normal or high depending on whom you ask^^.
Subway was kicked from a lobbying group for franchising businesses in Germany because they didn't achieve minimum scores in surveys on the satisfaction/happiness of their franchisees.
In Germany Subway franchisees are not bound by any collective bargaining agreements but Subway itself recommends to pay according to the sector-specific agreement - in reality there are many reports of 5.50 €/h being common pay at Subway whereas the collective bargaining agreement for franchise restaurants has 7.5 (west) / 6.75 (east) €/h as the lowest wage bracket (cost of living in the former GDR/East Germany is still lower than in the west).
Scammed some publord into jumping his Carrier into a shoot blues fleet on the 6vdt beacon. Tried to ransom him, but was no good because he decided not to play ball. Oh well, his Sacrilege and Hulk got popped as well.
Reason I decided to go through and do this was because he was a j4g faggot whose main interest was mining in his Hulk and selling ore. Even though he flys caps and black ops, he wants to mine. I cant have that.
OH GOD YOU CAN HEAR MY VOICE
You guys need to get a J4G alliance to set you blue. Then jump their shit into fountain and watch the tears flow - buckets are small time collection, you'd need pools.
They started by advertising how they buy their meat (& other ingredients) from local suppliers only, offered people to take guided tours at farmers that sell meat & potatoes to McDonald's (and got nice, credible testimonials in return), put salads, fruit & juice on their card, introduced McCafé (which is like a whole Starbucks inside a regular McDonald's restaurant), advertised in "Germany's Next Topmodel", are increasingly offering & marketing wraps, changed the interior of many restaurants to look less cheap (more wood, less plastics), introduced a veggieburger, have a number of burgers with real rolls instead of traditional burger buns, are experimenting with electronic ordering & checkout systems, changed the background color in many of their "I love it" flags outside restaurants from red to green, ... and by the looks of it they still managed to retain most of their traditional clientele.
Contrast to Burger King who only seem to be concerned with "How much beef & bacon can I pack onto a single burger?", market themselves as the last bastion of male chauvinism ("Have it your way" with an increasing undertone of "you really don't have to be ashamed to eat a Triple Whopper in this age of metrosexualism") and do generally seem to become dinosaurs (but have at least expanded their chicken burger offerings).
I study economics but was required to take a sizable amount of business administration & marketing classes during my first two years. At least in the MBA world McDonald's is a very reputable company.
