    Current Employee - Assistant Manager

    I have been working at Arby's full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I have a great time at work, my crew and I have developed acceptable ways to relieve stress at work in such a way our customers think we are just having fun. We have to cooperate and work as a team at night and the majority of my crew get along well and are excellent team players. My boss is awesome, although sometimes too nice for her own good. My district manager is a great source of information and has no problem answering any question I may come up with.

    Cons

    The biggest challenge.....is our hiring pool in our area. Finding good people, who work hard, well follow directions and will show up is challenging. I know I can be challenging to my GM, only because I am always wanting to learn more, know more. So sometimes I do drive her nuts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer more advanced training for assistant managers who are interested in learning more not just for those who may want to move up higher in the company

    I have been working at Arby's part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It's an easy job! I can have help to do the things I need if I need it which is nice compared to other jobs I have worked.

    Cons

    Management really doesn't help out much, and some eat so much! Wish I could eat and get breaks!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I wish I could get a free meal while I was working or at least free fries. Or even a break. There's times I never brought something to eat and I was starving.

    I worked at Arby's

    Pros

    Pay good for job requirements, if you can find the right team all will run smoothly. Management usually easy to work schedule with

    Cons

    Only cons are the normal in a ny customer service. Need to keep calm when busy but move and work as a team. Treat customers with respect no matter how they react to you

    I worked at Arby's part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    good work environment, mostly slow paced, lovely co-workers

    Cons

    The managers were fired frequently so we always had to become accustomed to new management. This was an issue for some employees at times. It seemed as if the "little people" were overlooked for higher up positions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    value the little people
