    Pros

    I found them to be a very ethical company that puts a great deal of emphasis on personal and professional integrity. Very much a family atmosphere. Even though I left a year ago, I'll continue to miss the people I worked with for a long time.

    Cons

    High standards can be hard to achieve, but not impossible with motivation and the right people. Long hours when the business requires, but no different from the industry standard.

    Advice to Management

    Just keep doing what you're doing. The company is very much on the right course.

    I worked at Wendy's

    Pros

    Wendy's job required me to work at a fast pace and I had to multi task during most of my shift. I enjoyed the customers because a lot of them came in on a daily basis , so I got to get to know them on a more personal level. I enjoyed being around people and I liked working in a team envirnment

    Cons

    I was the only white person who worked there so all the other employees only spoke Spanish so a lot of the time I felt left out or not part of the team.

    Pros

    You get to see the customers expression when they recieve their food in less then a minute. All the compliments people tell you will really make you feel proud of who you are and what you do.

    Cons

    Really fast paced and can get really hectic and busy when it gets to lunch and dinner rush.

    Advice to Management

    Please listen to employees when managers mistreat the employees. Not a pleasent work place when everyone feels like a slave.

    Pros

    Its fast paced, flexible hours, fun and friendly work environment, competitive pay, offers opportunity for advancement to anyone willing to work for it.

    Cons

    Providing unhealthy food to people, the amount of waste and garbage produced, and just supporting these things in general, working with people with no goals and aspiration.

    Advice to Management

    Concentrate more on friendliness and waste management, work on staffing each shift better when possible, get better deserts and frosty options.

    Pros

    I always felt like it had a warm atmosphere. Every time I came in I was always ready. Our customers loved the food and they were dedicated to us, and they always became like a second family to me.

    Cons

    Because our customers were usually regulars they felt like they had some type of advantage above others or that they deserved special treatment so when something went wrong they felt like they should have the " right of way" and it was hard when they start throwing their tantrums especially older ones.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to your crew and remember that we are a team, a family and should never be treated in any other manner but that.
