    Non the management never fixes problems thats why i quite coulds stay in a places where the manager cant come to an agreement.

    Cons

    Hire managers that will not cheat the business and are willing to listen to employees

    I have been working at Wendy's (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, 50% employee discount when working

    Cons

    Always short staffed, no raises or insentives so the people who work hard are over worked and aren't appreciated.

    Advice to Management

    For the people who do work hard, always show up and show up on time give them a raise and/or reviews starting after 60 days of employment.

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

    Pros

    If you like to stay busy, this job will keep you busy and on your toes. Moderately flexible schedule. Lots of overtime available.

    Cons

    As a manager, you need to work 50 hours, minimum. Horrible customers, lack of support from management, rigged system, sometimes work 30 hours in 48 with 2-3 hrs of sleep. Rigid system- corrupt upper management. Not flexible or open-minded to more efficient ways of doing things. Don't care about the rank and file.

    Advice to Management

    Utilize your employees' talents. Compensate accordingly.

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

    Pros

    The people (the coworkers) were really nice all the way up to the managers. Everyone is understanding of everything because they are very down to earth people.

    Cons

    The pay is minimum wage and you have to do everything from assembling food to cleaning the bathrooms. Trust me $7.25 is not enough to clean up piles of poop off the women's bathroom. There's also the thing about getting your break 20 mins in your 8 hour shift. Plus the thing about having to close one night (you leave on a good night at 3 a.m.) and then having to come in around 9 or 10 for store prep.

    Advice to Management

    remember your workers are people not robots.
