Sandwich Artist Careers

Look out Jared the Subway Guy, there's a new sandwich artist in town (we're talking about you!) This position welcomes creativity, and requires you know your way around a sandwich. I mean, you obviously want to put the lettuce first to prevent your bread from getting soggy from the sauce.

Seriously though, don't forget the sauce. No one enjoys a dry sandwich. Unless you have no tastebuds. Or are a picky child. Nonetheless, the majority of your customers are going to want a beautiful sandwich creation. From the meats to the cheeses, and even the veggies, you're allowed to be creative and show off your sandwich making skills.

The majority of sandwich artists only work part-time, but there are quite a few full-time positions open. Also, there are other sandwich places to work for, aside from Subway, so you have options. Or you could go your own route and open your own sandwich artistry shop. Or food truck. Whichever fits your creative side.

There is more than meets the eye when it comes to being a sandwich artist. For example, did you know that they make an average of $8.95 an hour? That's $18,622 a year!

Between 2018 and 2028, the career is expected to grow 8% and produce 69,100 job opportunities across the U.S.
