I went into subway the other day and got a sandwich, I paid full price for it...not complaining! I know for a fact, because I've seen it happen so many times, that one of the managers there plays favorites with the customers. They will give there friends discounts, just because they are friends. I don't think that is right. Why is it that everyone has to pay full price but if you suck up and kiss ass with them they will give you a discount? If we had a different place to get sub-like sandwiches like a arbys or something I wouldn't eat there. I think that it is ridiculous to play favorites like that.

seeing as how many times you eat there, doesnt sound like they want to be friends with you. so i guess your not going to be friends with them, so either make your own sub,its not that hard or go somewhere else or keep paying full price, I can see why the charge you so much cry baby.

Do you treat your friends better than you do strangers? How much discount do you recieve anywhere else? Any at all? Probably not. And what if they have known their friends for years? Wouldnt that make a difference? Why dont you just go to Mcdonalds and eat that greasy shit if you are so upset with someone doing favors for their friends. I eat at Subway at least 3 times a week and I will keep eating there because it is good. I dont care if they DO treat their friends special.

BTW: Try eating at a Subway in Jonesboro or Paragould. It tastes like shit - the bread is hard and they short the meat and vegetables. Pocahontas has the best Subway in Arkansas so you should be grateful and stop whining like a spoiled bitch.

They wont get in trouble for giving discounts. They have VIP cards for a reason, provided by Subway corporate. They can give discounts to whomever and whenever, as long as they dont overcharge someone then they wont ever get in trouble. And someone tried to run them out of here by putting a Subway in Wal-Mart ... we see how well that went.

If you dont like paying full price, then go to Walnut Ridge Subway ..... and pay full price. The friends that they have, have never asked for a discount. And they arent just friends because of having the Subway. The friends have been friends for awhile.

Oh yeah, and cops, firefighters, and ems all get discounts as well, withouth VIP cards.

So go bitch somewhere else.

i agree with you.People are whining because they don't get a discount boohoo. As for the ex-employee she was probably an idiot who got fired on bad terms because they were to lazy to show up to work. I think its a bunch of crap. Subway is a great place and people get discounts everywhere. If your friends with people at kfc you get free stuff not just discounted stuff but free same at mcdonalds so why dont you start a thread and bitch about them

for real...look at it this way... what if you all of a sudden opened up a resaurant, wouldn't you give your friends and family a discount?

I think the people who own subway or work at subway are writing all these sweet posts about how good they are. bullshit. they are slow and i have also seen them act really nice to someone they know and then be assholes to someone they dont. this is like the second thread they have had. Guess what Subway? alot of people think you suck! lol Get over it. Someone will end up reporting you to the corporate office eventually. ive heard from alot of people who have worked there that the boss treats them terrible and that they have video cameras with audio and that the owner sits there and watches them while she is at home on her computer trying to eavesdrop. thats awful!! employees deserve NOT to walk on eggshells!! what a [email protected]#$%

LOL you must be one of those fatass hags that got fired for being rude. If the place sucks so bad then why is it always crammed full at lunch time?

Maybe because people go there for the FOOD..that doesn't mean they have good staff.

Well if I wanted to whine I'd just call 'em up and whine to 'em about it. I'm not whining.
I, too, have seen them be really nice to people they know and carry on conversations, then when someone they don't know comes threw the line they are really rude and treat you like your stupid.

My grandmother came in to visit from Fayetville and we went to eat at Subway, they treated my grandmother with such disrespect.

Then why go there? I agree with *wondering*. If you have a problem with the place then dont go. I have been there a bunch of times and no problem. I order my food, pay for it and eat it. If I needed consolation I would write to *Dear Abby*. What difference should it make if someone treats their friends better than people they dont know? I do that too and I dare say you do as well. And disrespect usually goes both ways as I recall.

That may be so...but when you own a business...you should treat every customer with respect...if it weren't for the customers they wouldn't have a business.

Well the customers must not be getting treated too badly because Subway is packed every day. Or is everybody in Pocahontas a glutton for abuse?

The lady that runs it is not a nice person. She fires people when they have to call in for things like being in accidents and expects them to work the same day. She will never keep any workers in that place. She tries to be nice to your face when you call her on the phone and stabs you in back.
