Probably the biggest pro about this job was the $6.50 per-shift meal allowance at my store. I'm not sure if it's universal, but getting to eat one or two meals for free depending on your hours that day was nothing to complain about.
Arby's isn't that hectic of a quickserve restaurant, fortunately, but rush times still require working at a fast pace, and if your fellow team members are slacking, it affects everyone. Also, they don't give you full time.
I worked at Arby's full-time (More than a year)
Pay is decent but bonus is unattainable. Growing in the area. Arbys quality of meats have improved greatly. No late nights or early mornings
Upper management gives no support. The corporate office lacks serious communication and integrity. Not impressed and provides one of the worst work environments. They will work you into the ground and get everything out of you then dispose of you like garbage! Prime example of a franchise that has money and corporate Arby's sold out!
Advice to Management
Treat everyone equally. Provide proper training and support! You get what you give!
I worked at Arby's full-time (More than 5 years)
Plenty of opportunities to transfer around the country
Area supervisors are not present much.
Ask a lot of assistants and general mangers but no time to do what's asked and serve custmoers effectively

It's not a hard job,you can have fun and meet interesting people.. The hiring process to be a manager isn't the best because of favoritism, some have been working with the company for quite some time and know the job but seem to get overlooked simply because they are not the GM's favorite employee..
You can get let go behind hear-say,without any solid evidence.. Walking around on egg shells does not make for a comfortable working environment.. Raises and promotions are given to the favorites.. Those who put in the effort to make the place better will get overlooked..
Advice to Management
To the District and Regional managers: You should find out more about the team members who deserve a raise or promotion before you just take somebody else's word..A team member will be excluded if the GM doesn't care about a person who should get a raise or promotion..
Learn Profit and Loss, manage a restaurant, and meeting many new people.
Sometimes no respect from authority, anger of the company spreads, unfair favoritism, non-competitive pay.
