Milton Florida, Tried the new pastrami ruebin. The meat was ok, but the coleslaw they used instead of saurkraut was bad...I mean it had a 'off' taste. Very bummed about it. And my husband, he ordered the steak and cheese, NO CHEESE on the sub. I see they didn't put the cheese on the bill, but I specifically heard my husband say cheese...for gosh sakes it's the NAME of the sandwich. It's going to be a long while before we go back. The cashier we had was cold and no personality.

We went to the new location in Davenport iowa on division street. I know they just opened last week but not the firehouse i loved. We are from Tennessee (sevierville) and that store is amazing. I got the firehouse steak ans cheese added mushrooms was very soggy. My boyfriend got hero sub and asked for no mayo and got home it was covered. We didnt go back like we should have i tried to call tbe store busy 3 times so got on here. Once we placed the order we waited 17 min for our food. Lots of changes need to be done before i will be back.

Hello today at approximately 10:35am I Entered your establishment in Plainfield Indiana off hwy,40.I ordered a 12 inch meatball sub. Upon inquireing about adding mushrooms, onions, black olives the employee was rude in personal confrontation, and body demenier. "This sub does not come with that". I said I am aware I would like to add this to my sandwich. "Fine". Now I want to point out there was one lady in this place at this time of whom had already been helped waiting patently. No vehicles in the drive thru either. Clearley they were not busy. I saw 3 employees working inside this place at this time like unsaid 10:35 am. I waited off to the side and observed while I put a few hot sauces in those plastic to go containers with small snap lids. 3 employees one in lobby with phone plugged in the wall and the other two all on there cell phones, not talking but other text or etc.Upon my sanwich being done and placed on the counter I realised if I put the hot sauce in the bag I stoic a good chance of either falling out or popping open . to avoid a mess in my car or whatever, I asked if I could have a small box to put my hot sauce in and I also had a brownie. Firehouse employee with poor customer service friendliness skills asked hatefully why! I said I just do not want to spill any sauce with this to go order I do not need anything large just a small container. Employees sighs, then with no body enthusiam walks over to get one, I clearly was a bother and they let it show. I will finish this off by saying I am a rather large firehouse sanwich fan. I eat at the firehouse franchise in Speedway Indiana about 3 times a week. I enjoy that place friendly and no issues.You need some attitude adjustments and management skills in this location.

Wanted to let you know Tallahassee,FL has pick up for food scraps because they do composting. Believe through Office of Sustainability. They feature companies that do this on social media.Noticed used paper take out containers. I commend you.

I went to the Neptune Beach location off of Beach Blvd.and stood in line to order with a co-worker. As our turn came up we both ordered and then immediately after i realized the $5.55 deal wasnt for any medium but a specific one, so i asked to change it. The girl asked the manager which was the one making subs and she said ok but that my refund would have to wait. I was ok with it because i thought my sandwich was still being made. 12 minutes later she says ok sir here is your refund, now what would you like???
I had no idea how to handle it.
The worst experience ever.

Knox ave in North Augusta sc every time I order from the evening crew there's a problem with my order and I repeat myself so they get it right and it's still wrong and they're Rude. And you can't call the store back cause they don't answer the phone hardly....

Posted by Disappointed

Some of the crew members they currently have working there are overly nonchalant. They hand out sloppy subs and seem like they don't care about the customers. When I used to work there some employees would be very nasty to me. There was favoritism shown in scheduling. The old general manager would give me three days a week part time, which was great. But when a different manager started making the schedule I was only getting one day a week.That I don't care attitude is displayed in everything they do, the customer service, dish washing, food prep, cleaning, sub preparation and boxing. Ever since the general manager left it has gone down hill significantly. I quit working there because of it. These series of events took place in West Columbia South Carolina.

I ate at the Cedar Rapids Collins road store today. The place is as a pig sty. There were no clean tables. The garbage was over flowing. There was a puddle of something spilled right in the middle of the floor and people had been tracking it. There were only about 5 other customers in the the place. Only 1 customers in front of me waiting for food and 1 came later behind me. There were 3 employees. I waited 10 minutes for my sandwich and wiped off my own table..

I came for lunch at your shop in Niceville, Fl. They were to customers in the store. The unsweetened tea was empty and was the lemon aid. The manager had no idea that they were both empty. She said she would have it made up right away. Only three employees in the shop. I had my order sat done and ate it with righter drinks being filled. Very disappointed with the serve and the manger. As she insisted thattherewaslemonaid in the fountain machine. Ihavebeen theshop many times and I can feel a very anger tension here

I forgot to add that it was the Mayfield Road location and the manager that was crying was NICK.
I spent 26.75 what a waste of money. On food that was not right.

I went in while 1 person was ahead of me and 1 waiting on their sandwich and after me maybe 4 or 5 other customers placed their orders while patiently waiting maybe 10 minutes or so I see 3 of 5 customers pickup their orders and leave, I got up went next door to Shane's bar be que placed a order recd it and came back my order was still not ready I sat down and continued to wait after another 5-10 minutes go by someone behind the counter calls my name and says oh we lost your order and said we will have it right up so I continue to wait as I really did want the sub I ordered. Oh the incompetentcy is not over yet 5 minutes go by and the someone at the country calls out and says what all do you want on your sandwich so what this tells me I'd they still have not started on my sandwich so you know I sm pissed the f$%&* off at this point and said you know what never mind just give me a refund and don't worry about me coming back. I was told I can't have a refund because the manager had the code and she Is at Walmart I suggested she call her and get the code because I have been here over 30 minutes and need to go I was told she will be in in 20 minutes. So 20 minutes rolls by she strolls in with her Walmart packages and does my refund finally. And also during my wait one of the workers was sitting in the dining enjoying his sandwich and had finished His meal during the time I was still there waiting for my lunch. As far as I concerned VERY POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE THE ENTIRE SUNDAY AFTERNOON CREW INCLUDING THE MANAGER NEEDS TO BE TERMINATED BEFORE I SPEND ANOTHER DIME THERE. Thank you for hearing my concerns and I hope the appropriate actions are taken to better my communities shopping experience in our neighborhood.

I'm a police officer and eat lunch at your Niceville Florida restaurant on a regular basis. Everyone I order cornbread brisket and every time it's wrong and have to send it back. On 9.2.2017 the same thing occurred. It was sent back and came back incorrect 2 more times. My wife's as well. Bybthis time my lunch break was over and I had no time to eat my meal. There was also a family of six seated next to us and their meals were incorrect as well and had to be sent back 4 times that I personally counted. Now the store was fairly slow. There was a new manager who was doing her best to accommodate the patrons but as much as she did, the employees would mess up orders. I just wanted to make you aware of the issues at this store and ask if you could fix the problems before the loss of patrons cost my city a great business that I really enjoy eating at.

As much as I like Firehouse subs, to day I took my grandson for lunch and ordered a Kid's Combo, as usual, and was told because they now have a sub the same size for $3.99 he couldn't have any vegetables on his Kid's sub and if he wanted vegetables on it then he would have to order the $3.99 medium size, which does not come with a drink or Rice Krispie treat. This whole conversation with a rude young woman makes no sense to me.

Staff appearance is horrible at this location on University blvd. A lot of talking amongst each other and yet sub's are made wrong. The girl cashiers are the worst I've ever seen. Red hair. I guess they just hire anybody and the food quality is not there anymore

Manager sitting down rude cashier girl..not professional at all. This store has really gone downhill

Posted by Jmaloof

I asked for the sandwich to to warmed four times in a row different times each time they are cold. My last order at 1640 Lake Woodlans Tx 77380 will be my last order never going back again. Manager took my sandwich back to heat it up and didn't returen for 13 min so we left. This was order number on 5/27/2017 1:47 pm cashier Chase C. Tea is always old they make new tea in the same stainless steel canister resulting in dark tea that is days old. You can't keep making new tea on top of old tea the results is old tea taste. If you have 6 inches of tea left over from the morning you can just make new tea on top of that it looks dark and taste terrible. I've told the managers many times they look at me like I'm a fool and they have an attitude.

The firehouse sub in Fort Worth on Rosedale has the worst manger I have every seen...He is a very rude man.I over heard him talking to one of his employer like they where nothing and the sad part is this wasn't the first time or the second time I've heard him do this.I went to firehouse subs everyday for lunch but I will not be going back again because if that's the way you talk to your employees I can't support your business.

I was asked to hold through the drive thru in Pearland, Texas. That's completely fine by me as I worked in the service industry and understand you get backed up sometimes. Well 5 minutes goes by so I ask if anyone is there. Wait another minute and ask again. Waited a 3rd minute and asked again. At this point I said screw it. There were 3 cars behind me.and then I look over... Not a single person was in front of me. They were doing nothing!!! I pulled up to the window and waited. It took another 7 minutes for them to come up to the window and with a big smile asked "hi how are you doing today!". Are you kidding me? This is how you do business? I asked family members for firehouse gift cards because of how great your Subscription are. I would understand if this were the first time. No its the third. And it has gotten worse each time. You have lost me as a customer and I will be spreading the word to everyone I know. Shame on your company for not returning my calls. It wasn't even to complain. It was to let you know own because of how much I liked your establishments. Won't try anymore. You will be like quiznos soon. Great sandwiches. Horrible service/marketing.

I used to visit your store and have your chicken salad sandwich, but you added peppers and I hate peppers it should be optional so I quit going until you fix it, please let me know, thanks.

Whom ever is the owner of Firehouse Subs on 103rd st Jacksonville FL your employees are costing you money. They close the store early and sit inside milking the clock while customers pull up they shake their heads at them as to say we are closed at 8pm on a Friday night. This just happened tonight to my husband and I as we pulled up to your store. They were all sitting at the tables playing around and enjoying themselves as you pay them to do nothing. Just thought you might want know. And maybe screen your staff a little better, maybe do some random drug testing while your at it and check your money intake a little closer. In my business I guarantee you that they would not have a chance and I hope this does help you in determining what kind of people to actually run your business while you are out of sight. Clean house, that's all I can say.

I am so tired of calling your customer service number, having to leave a msg, and never called back.

I've filled out customer emails and still have not received help.

Pls help me!

I purchased a gift card from you for my son for xmas but my post office told me they accidentally returned it back to you. That was a week and a half ago. Pls have it returned to me since I purchased it or I will have to get a refund quickly. I don't have enough money to buy something else until I get the gift card or my money back from you.

Pls contact me

I came to the Firehouse in Oxford AL, and one of the workers by the name Brandon was so rude and rolled his eyes at me. He used some vulgar words under his breath like I wouldn't hear it I just don't appreciate it. I love coming to Firehouse but it will be awhile before I come back to the restaurant.

I Was at Austin, TX. And I Tried A Meatball Sub & It Tasted Fresh. This is Great, This Place is Almost like Subway or Jimmy John's, But Firehouse Subs is Awesome! Amazing Service, Friendly People & Fresh Tasting Meat. I'll Still Eat here.

Posted by A Fan

Firehouse Subs has great subs! I have never had a bad sub or service. Our family just had a birthday/going away party with 32 in attendance at one location and Firehouse Subs was very accommodating. Additionally they purposefully and publicly give back to emergency services within the community. I will admit that they are a little pricy, but the quality is equivalent. When I want cheaper I go somewhere else, but when I want a great sub I will go to Firehouse and get my usual #10

This has to be the absolute worst company to work for. The store I'm working in has nothing but problems especially with the employees and management. I have never encountered any situation like this. The store is understaffed and the the employees and management do nothing but chase away the new hire employees. I'm about ready to quit because who wants to work in a situation like this. I don't get it,they need help and the due nothing but cause problems for the new hires so they leave.

Posted by Firehouse hires child molesters

I was walking by a firehouse subs when I saw a sign for "now hiring sign holder" I went inside and compliance application.i was called the next day by a manager named "chop"..I was hired for 6 days a week..the next day I went in and chop told me sorry that they hired someone else. I asked if it is because I am disabled and in a wheelchair (I have osteoporosis,brittle bone disease)... she said no,it is due to me having tattoos..(wich I can cover and none are offensive)... so I was lied to, manipulated,and just plain disrespected..The other sign holder "chop" has working for her is a two time convicted child molester and ex doctor that lost his doctor license for sex w kids and illegally prescribing strong drugs... so I can't work at firehouse bc my tats..but a 2 time convicted child molester can hold the sign???!!!!

Firehouse should be ashamed of their treatment of their employees. Their store in Col. Hgts, Va schedules employees for 2&3 hr. shifts at $7.25 an hr. A,waste of gas! Often when employees show up atvtheir scheduled time they are told labor is too high to punch in so take a seat in he fining area and wait to be told they can punch in. These employees can't leave even though not being paid! Raises they are promised never come through or are delayed. This week all employees were forced to sign an agreement stating if they called out for inclement weather they could be fired. We all know how people tush out for a sub when we have ice and snow...really firehouse! Shame on you for caring so little about ypur employes!! Yes'lets risk life and limb for you, for a mere $7.25 per hr. Better yep employees are yold not to come in sick, but if you don't you have to provide a doctor's note. Yes, firehouse lets drive the cost of benefits up which you DO NOT provide. If you actually treated your hard working employees better your training costs would come down. Let's hope you learn some good business sense. As for my business, you lost it. I was a big fan of firehouse but you meed to treat people with respect and not skip so much on the meat you put on these sandwiches. Yep trimming that mere 1 oz sames you money while it losses your customers.

Ms.Gloria is so unfair to her employee, she very inconcerate toward her hard working employees. She is all about herself. I know it takes a hard and a determing person to keep a company running but the way she act towards her worker does make any sense at all like she's not human, like she doesn't have feelings, like she don't hurt like any other human being. MS.Gloria should treat me employees the way she would like to be treat.
