    Pros

    Great introduction to the workplace for teenagers. I have sincerely enjoyed the fast paced environment although it can be frustrating at times.

    Cons

    Being paid minimum wage is never fun, and you'll run into a few bad apples on the crew.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it going

    Pros

    flexibility
    nice managers and coworkers
    was able to make enough money to survive while still having time for school.

    Cons

    Franchise owners did not want to invest the money that was needed to fix the store
    Wendy's International would not step in and take over the store.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be willing to spend money improving the store.
    Buy new equipment.
    stop trying to just rig together old equipment

    Cons

    Pay rate (if you come with no experience)
    Threatening of hours
    Hard to get smell out of new uniform
    Rude, bad-tempered customers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To not threaten hours, we are working for money ultimately and it's not pleasant to hear "I can cut all y'all hours because of this, that, and the third)

    Pros

    Put money in my pocket

    Cons

    lot of politics, most annoying this was when you get scolded for letting the drive-thru timer count get high, but how is this on you as a cashier when a customer pulls up and doesn't know what they want to order? you can't get impatient with customer...management could never give me an answer to this. flawed policy. Oh and 50% discount on food??? McDonalds gives a free meal for lunch.
