    Excellent communication not a number but a name

    General Manager (Former Employee) Apple Valley, MN (US)

    ProsCommunication between stores was great, especially between GMs.

    ConsNo shows by teenage employees, long hours.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore promotions from within for Area Managers. TOO MUCH HIRING FROM OUTSIDE FOR HIGHER POSITIONS.

    I love my job

    Assistant Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsI have a great time at work, my crew and I have developed acceptable ways to relieve stress at work in such a way our customers think we are just having fun. We have to cooperate and work as a team at night and the majority of my crew get along well and are excellent team players. My boss is awesome, although sometimes too nice for her own good. My district manager is a great source of information and has no problem answering any question I may come up with.

    ConsThe biggest challenge.....is our hiring pool in our area. Finding good people, who work hard, well follow directions and will show up is challenging. I know I can be challenging to my GM, only because I am always wanting to learn more, know more. So sometimes I do drive her nuts.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOffer more advanced training for assistant managers who are interested in learning more not just for those who may want to move up higher in the company

    Pretty good! Easy!

    Backline (Current Employee) Erie, PA (US)

    ProsIt's an easy job! I can have help to do the things I need if I need it which is nice compared to other jobs I have worked.

    ConsManagement really doesn't help out much, and some eat so much! Wish I could eat and get breaks!

    Advice to Senior ManagementI wish I could get a free meal while I was working or at least free fries. Or even a break. There's times I never brought something to eat and I was starving.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Best job to have while going to college

    Assistant Manager (Former Employee) Spokane, WA (US)

    ProsThe general manager I had was amazing. He didn't play favorites, and made going to work enjoyable. Arby's is a very clean fast food joint and they held each of us up to that high standard, which made me feel good about eating at other Arby's. It was very flexible about school hours which was great.

    ConsThere weren't any benefits, except a 401k which was better than nothing. I don't really have anything bad to say about the company policies or anything, just ended up working with frustrating co-wokers; same as any other job.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThey should remember that they hire adults, not just high school kids. The little Christmas bonus we got and other little things here and there were definitely geared towards high school mentalities.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    I had a good 2 1/2 year experience.

    Team Trainer (Former Employee) Columbus, OH (US)

    ProsGood reasons to work for Arbys is how well everyone works together to help make sure the customer is satisfied. The managers were tough but they continue to help you grow as an employee. You work as a team to complete orders and I like teamwork.

    ConsYou will always have an upset customer but you will have to try and help that customer. Sometimes during rushes it will get a little crazy but you have to step up and make sure everything is right so the customer leaves satified.
