    Pros

    I see people on here saying they don't hire people with a record, or smokers, or allow visible tattoos, well I'm a double felon with facial tattoos who smokes a pack a day and I work at Wendy's, my managers and owners are amazing! They don't care what you look like as long as you WORK, they don't care what you do at home just don't mix home life and work life or Vice versa

    Cons

    Hire teenagers who are still in school, on my shift they must be out by 10pm so they know this and they slack cuz they clock out same time anyway, while those who are not minors have to finish their work or stay later

    Advice to Management

    Make me full time I got 5 kids

    Pros

    You get to know so many of the lovely customers and get to know them on a deep level it's great. But at Wendy's being really good at something has its downfall.

    Cons

    The biggest downside of working at Wendy's. Is you don't really have managers that give two damns about their crew and the needs of their crew. They burn you out on one specific position until you literally hate the job your doing. So if your good at one thing be prepared for it to be about the only thing they have you do.

    Advice to Management

    Actually care about your crew. Listen to them. If they tell you hey I'm going to have a panic attack or anxiety attack. If you keep someone on a position for 4 or more hours they will get burnt out. Every single day. It's nice to have a break.

    Pros

    Great fun working with the people and awesome food. Having so much fun, the day passes quickly. They keep updating their restaurants!

    Cons

    Great Food! Lot of customers. You have to love people if you want to work here. People who don't like people stay away.

    Advice to Management

    Have to know your systems. Have some food service back ground a plus, thus knowing the basics of food safety a help.
