    Pros

    They work around your schedule and they pay you more then minimum wage. Co-workers and managers were wonderful and great management is actually on the line helping the crew out either with making sandwiches or salads or doing the fires or handling the drive threw

    Cons

    Typical fast food place and some of the costumers were very rude and leave there garbage for you to pick up after them

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Wendy's is a great place to start if you're looking for a first time job. It has some of the highest standards in the fast food industry in terms or food prep, cleanliness, and work ethic. They also took time to train me and thoroughly as possible. If you're looking to advance an opportunity always arises and managers are known for having addictive benefits. Shift Managers would always brag about how they just can't leave the job because the benefits can't be beat. They also offer tuition wavers if you take certain courses (usually ones that pertain to jobs that benefit the company). I think the expectation are pretty clear when you're an employee for this company and that was helpful in my eyes.

    Cons

    The job can be stressful. Sometimes they want you to do a lot with very little. If your supervisors were feeling the heat from upper management then you knew EVERYONE would be feeling that same heat. So when things get tough for the company the stress trickles down very quickly.

    I have been working at Wendy's as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Most of the staff is really great and fun to work with, including most of management. Everyone seems to enjoy working there most of the time.

    Cons

    It is hard to get 30 to 40 hours there because they want people to be part time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a computer screen for the fry station, it is hard for the fry person to hear every order from three areas! And get better ventilation for the fry area....it is always smoky.
