    I have been working at Arby's part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Pretty good management, mostly friendly environment, friendly coworkers, and advancement opportunities if you're a hard worker. Very flexible hours in my experience (usually pretty steady and fair hours) although any more than 40 is overtime and not allowed.

    Cons

    Can get stressful during rush times, and as with any fast food job a lot of people just don't work out or quit– can be very stressful if you are low on staff as well. LOTS of cleaning to do (although from customer perspective this is good) can be very hard on your body if you're working 8hr shifts on the daily. Service times can be hard to hit during rushes, coupon drops can make your week a living hell. Customers can be rude occasionally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect employees, cut some slack. Sales and service times are important but no one is perfect!

    I have been working at Arby's full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    My teacher Ray Bly, was the best thing about this job. He show me what it really take to be successful in this business.

    Cons

    I do not like the "letting them go" process. When you find out your people suck let them go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn a lot quickly and move up.

    I have been working at Arby's part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    There was alot of good things working at arbys for 5 years. Made alot of friends, alot of the crew was cool and around my age. I had the job when i was in College so i could relate to alot of my coworkers.

    Cons

    They stopped the raise after $1 increase even after working there so long. Closing as late as we did on the weekend and then having to wake right back up a couple hours later and open was annoying.

    I worked at Arby's full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The benefits packets is comprehensive. Good insurance, vacation pay, personal day.

    Cons

    This market is a bit isolated for the rest of the company so it doesn't receive the support form corporate that it should. Also little follow up on Area Supervisors allow for them to be dishonest and overbearing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Human resource issues should be handled fairly, quickly, and equally. Do not allow Area Supervisors to bully general managers into doing unethical practices.

    I have been working at Arby's part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great people to work with, my manager is flexible with my hours since Arby's is not my main job, and the work is not hard.

    Cons

    Minimum wage and minimum wage work like cleaning bathrooms, dishes after dishes, and basically being someone's jerk. My back hurts when I close because I do so much work with barely any help.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Help more with sweeping and mopping, don't send people home early, pay more than minimum wage and people will stay.
