You'll need to fill out a Subway job application if you're interested in working in one of the stores or at the company's corporate headquarters. Because each store is an independently owned and operated franchise, the process of applying to work at a restaurant is different from applying for a job with the company's corporate office.

Applying to Work at a Subway Restaurant

There are many employment opportunities at local Subway restaurants. Subway restaurants are franchises, which means that they are independently owned and operated. Each owner hires staff members for his or her own stores directly. However, you can submit an online application via the My Subway Career website.

Online Application

The steps necessary to apply online for store employment are:

  • Go to
  • Click on "Apply Today"
  • Enter a zip code in the area where you want to work.
  • Review the specific locations the system identifies.
  • Choose the stores where you want to apply by clicking the on-screen box.
  • Follow the prompts to fill out your employment application.

Store Application

Some Subway stores may also accept paper applications in person. If you prefer to apply in this manner, contact the stores you want to be considered for and find out if paper applications are accepted. However, you should keep in mind that the online process is the only way to submit a single application to multiple stores. If you opt to submit a paper form and you want to apply with multiple stores, you'll have to do separate forms for each of them.

Restaurant Positions

Several different positions are available in Subway restaurants, including:

  • Multi-Unit Manager
  • Assistant Manager
  • Shift Manager
  • Senior Sandwich Artist
  • Sandwich Artist

You can learn what's involved in each job when you visit the My Subway Careers website.
