    Pros

    Managers are great at doing their jobs!! The employees and managers are all very effective communicators!! I love that every manager I have had works with my school schedule both while I was in high school and while I was in college!!

    Cons

    The customers are definitely a challenge. Sometimes they male your job harder than it has to be, but they don't do it on purpose, of course. Keeping the Drive-Thru timer where it belongs is STRESSFUL!!

    Pros

    It's a job, that is about it.

    Cons

    there is a lot of work to do and you get paid close to minimum wage. It's hard to get promoted even though that's something they sell you on when you're hired. Even when you do get promoted the raise is not very significant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    pay your employees what their worth hands give more insight promotions

    Pros

    Love my managers & most of my co workers which is VERY important to me. My general manager is also very good with working with my school schedule. Sometimes I feel as though my managers should put their foot down on some of my co workers crap. I may get away with a lot of stuff ,but I am one of their BEST employees. Meeting new people from all over. Then you have you regulars that you just love when they walk in.

    Cons

    Pay is little to nothing!!!!! Especially when there are countless places where you can go where they will start you at $8.50. It is way too much work to get paid hardly anything. It is so hard to get a raise I have been there almost 3 years & got 1 raise. Every time it comes to raises Arby's adds another requirement you have to meet before you can get your little raise. If you are a manager or closer your hours are pretty much steady. Other then that your hours are based on sales. The customers think that since you work fast food you have no common sense. You never know if you will get cussed out or a complaint. I have had countless unprovoked customer "altercations" dealing with that isn't worth the pay. I am sure that can happen anywhere but minimum wage is not high enough for me to get yelled at by a customer who is not my mother. They get rid of popular items then replace them with something that is horrible then we are left trying to explain to customers why the change. I could go on & on but I won't. The only reason I am still there is because it is getting the job done while I am in college and like I said I love my managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management??! I rarely see the people above my General Manager.
