    Pros

    Working at Wendy's was a easy position that I used to make extra money through high school. I definitely enjoyed the discounts on the high-end fast food and the customers were great!

    Cons

    The management team was uneducated, degrading, had sour attitudes, and had no true leadership value.

    Advice to Management

    Motivation, up-lift, and positive attitudes are keys to success. Treat everyone fairly and start your day off with positive thoughts and vibes.

    Pros

    I enjoy meeting new customers and training new employees.

    Cons

    The company is greedy to the point they cannot staff their restaurants with managers. The cause is underpaying, salary are working 60+ weekly, only medical is offered, and on major holidays when we are closed that's our second day off. They are known not to give managers raises and they have no incentive programs to promote from within. They hire outside of the company because the crew realize it's not a good company for a career option.

    Advice to Management

    The issue is all your managers are unhappy of our treatment of being overworked, lack of benefits, and trying to serve the guest with limited crew will equal more unhappy guest and crew will quit constantly.

  8. Management needs more training, fast pace work environment ,tiresome work load

    Advice to Management
