TikToker impersonates a new Subway employee, gets a job and quits in an hour
A TikTok user has gone viral after claiming to snuck into a job at Subway.
In any industry, there’s always been this “fake it until you make it” thing for some people, often those looking to transition from one industry to another.
Well, one content creator took that mantra to a whole new level in August after claiming to be a new hire at one of Subway’s locations.
To their surprise, the joke quickly turned into real work, but it didn’t last very long.

The download was posted by ComedyCupidand has over 660,000 likes on the video-sharing platform, with over three million views.
“I told those Subway people it was my first day and they just let me work…I’m not even on the schedule. I’m not even an employee. I didn’t even do an interview,” they said. The background revealed that they were, in fact, inside the restaurant.
“I just arrived and told them I was a new recruit and didn’t need any training and they just left me alone in this restaurant.”
A comment in the replies, with over 50,000 likes, said: “lol the places are so understaffed they probably didn’t care.”
Comedicupid opened up a bit more about the experience, saying they got out after an hour of work. They said, “I came out and they said ‘wait, we’ll pay you for the hour you were here’ WITH WHAT DOCUMENTS.”
In another reply, the OG poster said, “Just rode, welcome to Subway…. I was there for barely 15 minutes and the other TWO employees went for a smoke during the lunch rush. Thank goodness they have these little pictures to bless them.
What happened next ?
Cupid was unemployed at the time and that was the reason for the visit to Subway.
One of the other TikToks posted about the situation included damning allegations regarding health and safety as well, saying a manager said the bread pans are not cleaned more than once a month.
A number of other issues led her to respond in the comments: “Should I call the health department?”
In a follow-up TikTok, Cupid said they have since phoned Subway management. Although they “don’t want people to lose their jobs”, the user admitted that they wanted it to be “safer in there”.
Whether conversations with management will ensure this doesn’t happen again remains to be seen.
