    I worked at Wendy's

    Pros

    The work wasn't difficult. The rush hours flew by and it was kind of fun making sandwiches. Great for a part time job for young students.

    Cons

    Depending on the manager, the experience can be very poor. I was lucky and had a really great manager. The wage isn't that great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I wasn't there long enough to really give advice. Good from what I saw.

    Current Employee - Assistant Manager Fast Food in Oakwood, OH

    I have been working at Wendy's part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I was extremely hardworking which caused me to basically get anything I wanted like management and choosing hours. Very flexible with scheduling when your really great at what you do. Fantastic with my schooling and understanding.

    Cons

    New people are pretty much grilled at my location until they quit and if they don't quit then they are extremely strong minded and normally pretty good workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everyone at my location made minimum wage (but me).. Which I had to wait two years for a raise which was when I became management. Pay would have been the only issue

    Former Employee - Crew Member

    I worked at Wendy's

    Pros

    Training was simple, paid above minimum wage, was close to home, encouraged to learn all positions, creates teamwork, develops positive skills such as thinking quickly, being aware of your surroundings, thinking ahead and multitasking, good managers while I was there

    Cons

    During my last couple of weeks management just fell apart, physically the job was challenging, if someone didn't show up to work everyone else had to cover for their position, sometimes customers got snotty about things out of our control, scheduling could be difficult, didn't get the hours I needed

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you think a branch isn't being run right, don't go in and put everyone down and tell them they are horrible at their jobs. That's not going to help anything. Be nice about it and show them what they need to change.
