    Cons

    Aside from the fact that this is a great place to work and develop i would say that the hours and flexibility were not always the best.

    Pros

    50% off of 1 item everyday. If there were more pros I would totally put them on here but unfortunately there is none.

    Cons

    The baja fresh I worked for had no manager and to be a cashier at a store that has no manager you get no help and all of the pressure is on you. But of course you get paid the least.

    Advice to Management

    Please get a manager.

    Pros

    Very laid back and you are able to have flexible hours.

    Cons

    Management is not great. Training is just one day. The pay is alright. Sadly I didn't get to move up with the company because the establishment that I was working at closed down.

    Pros

    Family oriented culture, mild growth opportunities, interacting with customers.

    Cons

    drama at all stores as to be expected in foods, pay, exhaustion can hinder academic performance in college

    Advice to Management

    Return back to the pre wendy's baja fresh. Get rid of low performing items such as carnitas, reduce paper cost, work with your competitors to secure group food contracts, and support your franchises with marketing in their region with regards to party packs.

    The pay scale could be better.

    Try to expand across the 5 bouroughs to increase brand recognition and beat those Chipotle guys in the butt. Go Baja!
