    Pros

    Awesome managers, working an average of 20-30 hours a week part time, awesome coworkers, 50% employee discount, easy to work your way up the management chain.

    Cons

    Working with the public can be really irritating. They can be rude, ignorant, and just plain mean. I've had people scream in my face because their sandwich had lettuce on it when they didn't want lettuce..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is just an awesome company, I love it.

    Pros

    The best reasons for working at Wendy's was the ability of the crew working together to get the job done. We had the best managers ever.

    Cons

    you always received the proper training before being left alone to do your job

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In every business there is room for improvement. From past experiences I think the management team at Wendys 505 in Eufaula "ROCKS"
