    I worked at Wendy's full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Dave Thomas
    The team I worked with
    The ability to move up in the company
    A new challenge every day
    Very smart senior management
    I would recommend Wendy's to anyone that wants to learn about the QSR restaurant business from the best!

    Cons

    It is critical that all field management is held to the standards set forth by Dave Thomas and today's senior management. The recipe for success is there and should be enforced.

    Advice to Management

    Creat succession plans for the operations teams. Because at times people are stressed to deliver on Dave's promise to the consumer, the team's development suffered.

    Pros

    Flexible hours and were understanding when I needed to take off for family and school. Managemet was great at communicating goals and benchmarks to meet

    Cons

    Very limited upward movement but that's expected when your working as a part time employee in a non corporate area

    I worked at Wendy's full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I was with Wendy's for many years , I had moved up from crew to Management and worked there for 24 years . I worked upvery quickly into management and felt the company had great classes and training for employees . They had great benefits and took very good care of their people.

    Cons

    The only thing I hated about was the hours for late night and having to be back into work next day . It is very difficult to have bosy wind down sometimes when closing and I don't always understand the late night in areas where not alot of traffic once school starts . If you have a campus store and kids are up late, I understand . But before doing late night I felt Wendy's should go back to breakfast . You have people in store at both times . And felt Wendy's as a safe family oriented place would be better with breakfast then open late nights.

    Advice to Management

    Only thing you really should adhere to is making sure that subordinant managers are trained in all tasks for their positions and training for next level to be ready in case management moves on and need to promote within . Always train and be fair to assign those tasks out .
