    Very enjoyable to work for if you have the right management staff

    Crew Member (Former Employee) Bristol, VA

    ProsGet great training on any position if you are willing to
    Get half off any item on the menu board any day of the week as long as you worked that day

    ConsStart out at minimum wage depending on where you apply at and receive a job; raises could be better.
    Sometimes if you're closing drive thru, you are left to do it all: order taker, drinks hand out, sandwiches, grill

    Advice to Senior ManagementA LITTLE ADVICE TO MANAGEMENT: Although I never worked in a management position in the 4 1/2 years I worked for Wendy's, I've worked for managers that would walk off position and freely do what they wanted. DON"T WALK OFF POSITION when you are slammed in drive thru and front and your crew needs your help in any and every possible way.

    Corporate office is a great place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe company culture here, which permeates from the top down, is excellent. Great communication between business units. Able to maintain a very good work-life balance.

    ConsThe performance review process needs to be modified. Too few boxes to slot people into, which makes it difficult for managers to explain why someone was ranked where they were.
