    I worked at Arby's part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fun, fast paced environment and the night shifts were usually very relaxed. As long as management is good, this job is definitely worth it.

    Cons

    Not much room for upward mobility and its hard to get 30 hours a week. Sometimes customers will force you to give them free food.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of people that aren't serving the company well and allow employees to more easily move upward in the company.

    I worked at Arby's part-time

    Pros

    Job was pretty easy, and you get half off meals.

    Cons

    Minimum wage; hours were consistently less than I asked for when I got the job.

    Advice to Management

    Work your employees their desired amount of hours. I was told that I was one of the best employees they had, by my manager. Yet, by the end of my time here, I was working 4-8 hours a week, which is why I left. Many others who I worked with were experiencing the same thing.

    I worked at Arby's full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It's a good place to start out if you want to get some experience in the workplace, make some money to spend and for college, especially if you're a teenager. And the hours can be flexible, if you'd like.

    Cons

    There were quite a bit of coworkers who did absolutely nothing in the store (other than just showed up) and my manager never did anything to actually reprimand such behavior.

    Sometimes people will not show up for work without telling anyone, thus causing you to stay over. While more hours shouldn't be a bother because it means more money, it's not fun if you've been there for nearly eight hours already. And it's just rude and irresponsible as a whole to expect someone to stay at work for someone who just didn't feel like showing up.

    And people may (will) yell at you about food, literally all the time. But that's a given, so that one isn't such a biggie.

    Overall, my experience wasn't good whatsoever.

    Advice to Management

    Hire employees that actually have decent potential, not ones who are just willing to do the bare minimum to get a paycheck. This includes managers as well. I know of one manager who had absolutely no idea of what he was doing, and ended up leaving the beef in the incorrect oven overnight. We couldn't use any of it. And also, give the team members and managers that obviously HAVE potential, a chance. This includes moving from team member to shift manager, assistant manager, general manager, etc. Rarely did I see that happen.
