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

    Pros

    Starting hourly wage is $8.
    Interviews are usually day of application.
    You gain hours per week quickly
    Application process respects personal achievements

    Cons

    Moving up to higher pay takes a while

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Always keep a light weight tone, especially with employees younger than 21, simply because from my experience it comes across as nagging and unprofessional.

    I worked at Arby's part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The Job was a new experience for me. I wish it could have been longer than 4 months but, it an opportunity that i just couldn't pass up.

    Cons

    Trying to keep The Bosses, Other Employees, & Customers all happy. Even Harder when you're the only 1 that's an African-American.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everyone was nice in front of newbies face but behind their back talking about other employees.

    Pros

    Structured training
    Very very competitive pay
    Upper management actually seems to care about developing future talent
    All around ..surprisingly excellent.(corporate anyways, I cannot speak for franchise restaurants)

    Cons

    You do work for your money..hardly a con though.
    Shifts bounce around..so sometimes your slept schedule can feel a bit silly...again not really a con

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Managers are great at doing their jobs!! The employees and managers are all very effective communicators!! I love that every manager I have had works with my school schedule both while I was in high school and while I was in college!!

    Cons

    The customers are definitely a challenge. Sometimes they male your job harder than it has to be, but they don't do it on purpose, of course. Keeping the Drive-Thru timer where it belongs is STRESSFUL!!
