    Pros

    Friendly co-workers, great clean work environment. Awesome management, and great team work. Also, very flexible hours which is always great.

    Cons

    Not paid a lot. 7.93 an hour doesn’t really pay the bills. Other than that, there are no other cons.

    I worked at Wendy's (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decently worked around school hours

    Can get very messy, especially on the closing shift.

    Be fair with all employees, even new ones. Try not to lean back on favoritism to get things done, the new guy might surprise you.
