    Management, rude customers, no overtime and minimum wage

    Advice to Management

    Lead by example. Nobody is going to give you the least bit of respect if you do dumb stuff you tell them not to do. And you dont pay us enough for the amount of stressful work you put us through.

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

    Pros

    Team was excellent to work with and I made many friends.
    Some good food!
    Teaches you a lot about food service industry

    Cons

    Management plays favorites
    Little room for adjustment in schedule
    Pay was minuscule
    Schedule was not available until approx. 12 hours before its starting date.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees more fairly and don't expect hard-working, loyal workers when there is little room for raises and management plays favorites.

    I worked at Wendy's full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fast paced. Always 40hrs. Starting salary 27500

    Cons

    Upper management is very political. If you don't impress the right people, they will terminate you. Not job performance based.
    You will have no life in upper management at the Restaurant level. Salary is "50" hours a week, to top 80ish. Travel is not paid for.

    Advice to Management

    It's who you know, not how you work.

    Pros

    the corporate of the Tarheel capital Franchise of Wendy's are great and professional.

    Cons

    However the store managers all suck at least at my store the managers are disrespectful, rude and condescending. They all have attitudes and expect their employees to simply just deal with their rudeness. I have only been here a couple months and seen 5-10 people leave because of the managers and their disrespectful ways and I'm getting ready to leave as well. They also expect you to put the needs of the Wendy's before you're own personal needs, ie I was sick with the stomach flu and they told me I had to come in, which is a health code violation.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management stop being rude, be more professional, if you don't want people to make mistakes train them better.
