    Ask questions. Ask about how the company's philosphy when it comes to maintaining employee satisfaction. Intelligent questions will help you appear creative and shows initiative.

    Seriously though...in the fast food type thing just try not to sound like a dufus and do everything you can to give them the impression that you're reliable and flexible. That's really all they need at a place like subway.

    I'm so glad the days of working with food are long gone. My first job ever was McDonald's and I told myself I'd never work in a food related job again.

    Er...I mean fast food is an exciting and vibrant career path, Mike.

    Where is this job - next door? That was quick. I'm sure you'll be okay - I've seen your picture and you look to me like you could make a sandwich.

    Mike lives in the alley right behind Subway, feasting on throwaway buns and half-eaten turkey. He's the Jared of hobos.

    Its about 15 minutes away...

    The interview itself took all of 5 minutes... The manager there is pretty cool... He must be a musician, because he was talking to me about jazz band most of the time :p
