    I worked at Wendy's part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Fast food jobs are relatively easy to learn. It does not take a whole lot to pick up the things required to perform the job. The managers were very good about taking time to properly train me. Also, Wendy's offered very flexible scheduling. I was part-time but it was very easy to pick up extra shifts.

    Cons

    Working any fast food job is a lot of work for very little money. There were days when I worked upwards of 15 hours. Also, there were lots of high school aged kids who joined the crew just long enough to afford whatever shoes their parents wouldn't buy them. The high turnover rate meant that we were often short staffed and overworked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication and coordination between managers would solve a lot of the problems.

    tough working in an environment such as Wendy's. Going home smelling like oil and fries everyday
