    Pros

    There is no seniority and you can progress at your own rate. The pay is very reasonable and the enviornment is wonderfull.

    Cons

    The time you put in you usually do not get back. The Salary is good but not for the hours you put in if you work over 50.

    Advice to Management

    As long as you have follow up and accountability you will be very sucessfull in any management position you are in.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    -Free food after the shift (even though this wasn't technically allowed, everyone did it anyway and the supervisors encouraged it)
    -Some nice coworkers
    -Expectations were relatively clear
    -Hours were pretty good

    Cons

    -It's fast food, so of course the pay is horrible and turnover is enormous
    -Was often expected to stay long past my shift had ended. Had to stay until the supervisor decided we were finished cleaning, which seemed to depend largely on his mood rather than any objective standard. He would clock out for us, often subtracting 15-30 minutes off the actual time we worked.
    -Horrible, agonizing training sessions which last the better part of a week at 8 hours a day. You're expected to take in vast amounts of information in a series of overwhelming infodumps and retain it all. Yes, Wendy's is basically a byword for an easy job, but it's a bit frustrating right at the beginning when they throw you out to the sandwich station for the first time and you're expected to recall the correct order of the ingredients for each of a billion different sandwiches with no mistakes or hesitation.
    -Condescending management.

    Advice to Management

    Improve the training, it's horrible and way, way too long.
