    I have been working at Wendy's full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I was excited to see on your website that you feature employees talking about how great it is to work for your company. These days so many people seem to hate where they work for one reason or another. It's wonderful to see that your employees are proud to talk about how much they love their jobs."

    Cons

    Listen to every member. The extent to which you genuinely hear others will increase confidence, acceptance, and success. Problems are more easily solved when people keep an open mind and listen to others' perspectives. Listening carefully to others also helps us understand and appreciate how group members feel and think.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you are not absolutely clear and provide the clarity needed for all to understand, you will have a confused team. They will not truly understand the mission, vision, and goals. Confusion turns into anxiety, which then turns into fear. Your team clearly needs to know what is expected of them, the value of their strengths, and the actions you will take to achieve the objective. With the information you will learn throughout this course, you will be able to confidently implement the necessary actions for the team to achieve the objectives and goals.

    Pros

    Wendy's is a stable employer, with many locations to choose from. Wendy's has advancement opportunities.

    Food Service has a lot of pitfalls, no matter what restaurant it is. A lot of goals are in place and not a lot of support for new people, in smaller franchises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    always be training your replacement.
