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

    Pros

    The hours paid off. The discounts made the food ridiculously cheap.

    Cons

    The managers and workers were horrible. They did drugs and I ended up doing most of the work. My managers gave me stress because they treated me horribly.

    Advice to Management

    Too many problems to list..

    I worked at Wendy's full-time (More than 3 years)

    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.
