Working At Subway

6 posts in this topic

Hi,

Voc Rehab wants to try training me at Subway and I was wondering if anyone else has worked there and had Celiac Disease and how they did working there.

Thanks

DJ

Very bad idea! You'll be exposed to gluten on an ongoing basis--too many chances to get glutened from touching the bread and cookies. Now, I realize that Subway has launched a pilot program to bring gluten-free sandwiches to the masses, but you'd have to make regular sandwiches, too. Does your vocational rehab counselor know you have a problem with gluten? This is a Worker's Comp claim in the making....

I agree with Rose. Tell them about the celiac. Why can't they help you get a job registering patients at a hospital? Or filing? Or cleaning? Etc.

Don't do it! Gloves or no gloves, you shouldn't be working around wheat.

subway workers use gloves when touching food

I had a job not long ago that required feeding lunch to a large number of children every day. I thought it would be okay because the food was deliverd alreay made. I wore gloves for that and also when working with crafts with the kids. It wasn't long before I realized the gloves really didn't protect me as much as I thought they would and I had to leave the job.

Working at Subway, no way. OP see if they can train you for a diffent position somewhere else. If needed get a doctors note stating that you cannot work around food.
