    Pros

    I found them to be a very ethical company that puts a great deal of emphasis on personal and professional integrity. Very much a family atmosphere. Even though I left a year ago, I'll continue to miss the people I worked with for a long time.

    Cons

    High standards can be hard to achieve, but not impossible with motivation and the right people. Long hours when the business requires, but no different from the industry standard.

    Advice to Management

    Just keep doing what you're doing. The company is very much on the right course.

    Pros

    Great company TO work for, If you do the right things WITH customer, company and employees. I would recommend anyone that's looking to join a great company IS defiantly Wendy's

    Cons

    I have no downsides about the company, I regret that I left the company because Wendys is thus far the best fast food restaurant to work for

    Advice to Management

    My advice to manager is to do the right things, ensure and force great customer service, always follow all policies that Wendy's require.

    I worked at Wendy's

    Pros

    Wendy's job required me to work at a fast pace and I had to multi task during most of my shift. I enjoyed the customers because a lot of them came in on a daily basis , so I got to get to know them on a more personal level. I enjoyed being around people and I liked working in a team envirnment

    Cons

    I was the only white person who worked there so all the other employees only spoke Spanish so a lot of the time I felt left out or not part of the team.

    Pros

    The co-workers there are friendly and nice to you. Many of them are willing to help you if you ask.

    Cons

    They expect you too rush in the drive thru so fast and do drinks, and go wash dishes. There's a lot of multitasking in the drive thru. And the .10 cent raise every 6. Months is not enough

    Advice to Management

    Don't rush things. The more you rush it there more wrong orders your going to have

    Pros

    Employee discounts are cool. Happy Crew works great together

    Cons

    Pay rate not worth the work load

    Advice to Management

    If the crew is not happy and keep leaving it's time to look at the management
