City-based business has more than 150 openings

MILFORD >> Restaurant chain Subway announced this week it is seeking applicants for more than 150 job openings in various departments at its world headquarters on Sub Way (formerly Bic Drive).

Interested applicants can visit to browse current openings, according to a press release from the company.

“We are committed to building our workforce and being a leading employer in Connecticut and in our industry, while other area companies are reducing their workforce,” said Lisa Shea, vice president of human resources for the Subway brand. “We have a large number of open positions across all functions of the business, and we’re looking for dedicated individuals to join our collaborative team.”

Subway has added more than a dozen key team members to its Milford Headquarters team in the areas of digital marketing, technology, restaurant operations, guest care and public relations, according to the press release. The new hires come amid global expansion in an effort to support the franchisees of nearly 45,000 restaurants and their millions of customers around the world, the press release states.

Enhancing the company’s presence in the digital space is a major focus, company officials said.

The company recently hired a director of customer engagement to focus on transforming how the brand interacts and engages with customers on a daily basis, the release said. Director roles also recently have been filled in global public relations and restaurant operations, with additional team members sought for both.

A recently produced video highlights the Milford headquarters, featuring employee profiles and commentary on career development, benefits such as on-site yoga and meditation classes, and sweeping drone footage of Milford’s downtown area and coastline. The video can be viewed at:
