    Pros

    They do give you time off as needed. Every time I need a day or weekend off I have gotten it. /they allow us to bring our kids to work if we don't have childcare as long as they are of age and act responsible. You get Thanksgiving, Christmas Day, and part of New Years Day off.

    Cons

    The pay is not that good. You have to deal with alot of homeless and panhandlers. the word team/crew member doesn't apply to the younger crowd as they don't like doing things tht have to get to run a business.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people who have work experience and who are not afraid to work. Don't hire students who need to be on there phones all the time. Look at the person's work history and if need be follow up on past employers.

    Pros

    Free food, management was lax, flexibility, very easy to learn all positions, easy to get promoted if you qualify for the manager position

    Cons

    No room for growth, fast food doesn't make a lot of money also the shaving is ridiculous we should just wear food service hair nets

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees with more respect

    Pros

    There are really no pros in working here, you don't even get a free burger once a week, I'm a minor and they don't give me anything on break, I have to pay it.

    Cons

    No benefits, bad pay, some managers don't treat you with respect, you have to buy your own food and minor get very few hours.

    Advice to Management

    They should treat employes with more respect!

    Pros

    Easy to learn fast paced environment very fun people most of the time. I enjoy working here a lot. Lots of room for advancement.

    Cons

    Grill and fry stations get really hot during the day. Be prepared to sweat. Thats about it though. If you suck it up through the sweating its simple and fun.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain what you are doing. If you need any improvment it would be this learn your positions. And do your paperwork you need to.

    I worked at Wendy's part-time

    Pros

    Work was simple enough, and once you got going you could handle things pretty well by yourself and with others. Management was also really flexible and helpful.

    Cons

    The hours for late-night could be rough sometimes. Customers aren't the best (but that's fast food for you!).

    Pros

    Good place to get used to working fast food, decent hours, reasonable bosses, nice coworkers, its never too busy, short rushes,

    Cons

    The smell of burgers makes me sick, the kitchen is too hot, baked potatoes smell horrible, overall extremely unprofessional and disorganized.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate better. It took two days for you guys to give me my clock in number, i was never taught how to put on my uniform.
