    I worked at Wendy's

    Pros

    There honestly wasn't any benefits that I saw worthy of mentioning. You get a weeks paid vacation if you work an average of 25 hrs/week. You can't work full time unless you're a manager

    Cons

    Management is awful, team member often did not show up on time, members who were undeserving got promoted. The managers are rude and talk behind your back. Everyone knows everything that happens.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Visit your south ga locations and take a look at management undercover, they are awful.

    I have been working at Wendy's full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The best things was getting to meet and work with some really good people.

    Cons

    No holiday pay for shifts. Crappy pay. I dont even make $9/hr to scrub baseboards and legs of equipment. Your not a valued employee but just plain ole property to Wendy's. We are not valued as employees and people. This company doesn't go out of their way to appreciate you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's not always about your bonuses. You wanna keep your people? Treat them with dignity and respect. We have families and bills too.

    Good place to start if you have no experience, bad hours and pay for what they're asking of you.

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

    Pros

    Pay wasn't too great but can't complain too much given I don't have any experience.

    Cons

    Hots were sporadic and when you do work. They drive you hard. They want $15 an hour type work on $8 an hr salary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider giving some faithful employees better pay and hours.

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

    Pros

    I worked at the Wendy's located in my school's campus, so I feel like the managers were a lot more understanding and lenient. My job schedule was really flexible, and the managers and other staff were always willing to help one another.

    Cons

    We had a constant change in managers. I worked for Wendy's for 2 years, and had a total of 4 different managers.

    Pros

    free food as a manager

    Cons

    This is the worst company I have ever worked for. Anyone can be a shift manager. The pay is horrible. Can not afford the benefits because the pay is so low and the lack of hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop talking about your employees. GROW UP!!

    Pros

    Quick hire, clean...won't work there, but would definitely eat there.

    Cons

    No room for growth. Do not hire from within. You will never be more than assistant manager.

    Hire people Full-Time!

    I worked at Wendy's full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    - Employees are amazing and inviting.
    - Everyone works hard.
    - Customers are friendly. (for the most part)

    Cons

    - Things get hectic.
    - Minimum wage until management.
    - No one really hold anyone accountable for anything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get better management and have a better set of people to back that manager up. Most people don't know how to work drive through so they need more training. Please raise the minimum wage.
