    Cons

    DON"T PAY ENOUGH, YOU DO EVERYTHING for $7.25: maintenance,back line, front, fries, etc.. I'm like you all only pay me $7! UNPROFESSIONAL: Employees call out every single day, show up late, etc... Too much to handle for too little pay

    Pros

    Pros you get to work with some amazing employees, and sometimes meet some very nice people

    Cons

    Arbys policies change to much. They do not have incentives for managers or crew. Its far and between when a crew worker gets a raise when they clearly explain that after each modular that they pass they can get a .25 cent raise after 4. This rarely happens and the managers have no bonus or pay raises, well at least the one I work for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your crew like you would want to be treated also work as a team with your follow managers. To many times everyone in management is on different pages. Have fun,play fair,dream big,make a difference,work hard, some of your philosophies lets really strive to do such and not have these words just be words.

    I have been working at Arby's full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I have a great time at work, my crew and I have developed acceptable ways to relieve stress at work in such a way our customers think we are just having fun. We have to cooperate and work as a team at night and the majority of my crew get along well and are excellent team players. My boss is awesome, although sometimes too nice for her own good. My district manager is a great source of information and has no problem answering any question I may come up with.

    Cons

    The biggest challenge.....is our hiring pool in our area. Finding good people, who work hard, well follow directions and will show up is challenging. I know I can be challenging to my GM, only because I am always wanting to learn more, know more. So sometimes I do drive her nuts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer more advanced training for assistant managers who are interested in learning more not just for those who may want to move up higher in the company

    I have been working at Arby's part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It's an easy job! I can have help to do the things I need if I need it which is nice compared to other jobs I have worked.

    Cons

    Management really doesn't help out much, and some eat so much! Wish I could eat and get breaks!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I wish I could get a free meal while I was working or at least free fries. Or even a break. There's times I never brought something to eat and I was starving.

    General Manager Job and salary

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Arby's

    Pros

    Pay good for job requirements, if you can find the right team all will run smoothly. Management usually easy to work schedule with

    Cons

    Only cons are the normal in a ny customer service. Need to keep calm when busy but move and work as a team. Treat customers with respect no matter how they react to you

    I worked at Arby's full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The general manager I had was amazing. He didn't play favorites, and made going to work enjoyable. Arby's is a very clean fast food joint and they held each of us up to that high standard, which made me feel good about eating at other Arby's. It was very flexible about school hours which was great.

    Cons

    There weren't any benefits, except a 401k which was better than nothing. I don't really have anything bad to say about the company policies or anything, just ended up working with frustrating co-wokers; same as any other job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They should remember that they hire adults, not just high school kids. The little Christmas bonus we got and other little things here and there were definitely geared towards high school mentalities.
