    How to make sure you pass the trial period? Be likeable, Every single place I've worked the people that weren't liked have been weeded out over time. EVen if you have more experience, if you seem boring people WILL discuss it...

    Good luck and have fun

    I've never specifically done a work trial in Subway but I have done them in Costa Coffee, Tesco Express and an independent bakery and been offered all 3 jobs so I have done my fair share of work trials!

    Here are my top tips:

    1. Make sure you are friendly to everyone - customers and members of staff
    2. Try your best to do things well and fast - they will take into account that you're totally new to it all but do things enthusiastically and to a high standard
    3. They can be nerve wracking as you can feel you are being watched but try and stay calm and be confident
    4. If there are any chances make sure you ask LOTS of questions about the job - to anyone, manager or other staff members. This will make you seem keen and interested which is very important. Ask things about practical arrangements, plus how everything works during the work day (e.g. how many people do you normally have serving, routines for cleaning, portion sizes etc)

    Good luck! They obviously like you if they invited you for a work trial so do your best and you'll be in with a good chance any more questions feel free to ask
