    Pros

    Be good at your job and have flexible hours and you WILL get promoted.

    Cons

    Crew members and managers come and go frequently and you have to adapt quickly. Not really a con but could be a tad overwhelming.

    Pros

    The Job was a new experience for me. I wish it could have been longer than 4 months but, it an opportunity that i just couldn't pass up.

    Cons

    Trying to keep The Bosses, Other Employees, & Customers all happy. Even Harder when you're the only 1 that's an African-American.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everyone was nice in front of newbies face but behind their back talking about other employees.

    Pros

    Great Product, Great opportunities, and managers eat free!!! One of the fastest growing Fast casual restaurans in America

    Cons

    For a while Arby's was constantly changing there brand image which is not a good thing in this business however I think #meatcraft will be around for a long time.

    Pros

    Structured training
    Very very competitive pay
    Upper management actually seems to care about developing future talent
    All around ..surprisingly excellent.(corporate anyways, I cannot speak for franchise restaurants)

    Cons

    You do work for your money..hardly a con though.
    Shifts bounce around..so sometimes your slept schedule can feel a bit silly...again not really a con

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!

    I worked at Arby's part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    I honestly can't think of anything positive about working here...

    Well, I guess if you need work experience or a first-time job then it's a good place to start.

    Cons

    Extremely rude supervisors--favouritism played a huge part here. There was absolutely no proper training. It was difficult to request time off because it was always understaffed. The one time I ordered food from here, I didn't receive the employees' discount because I wasn't "on the clock".
