    Pros

    Some of the best reasons to work at Wendy's are: see new people everyday you can make money, and enjoy what you do.

    Cons

    some of my downsides are like if the people are not good at what they do then it's hard for me to work because, then I might be doing their job but the outcome of that would be they learned something today.

    Advice to Management

    keep employee's happy, Make good service and do what you have to do to keep us in the job.

  3. It is a very fast paced job, but knowing that there was a successful day makes it worthwhile.

    Pros

    1. The other crew members and managers are great people to work with.
    2. For good work done, some are given a few extra hours on the next employee schedule.
    3. The job can be quite simple at times.

    Cons

    1. There are sometimes where the job can be really difficult.
    2. There are a few employees who do not do their job appropriately, and do not wish to try to.
    3. There are times when you are given a new position and the trainer of the job does not properly inform the crew member how the job is to be done according to policy.

    Pros

    Simple tasks that don't require too much brain power
    Co workers are friendly and so are the managers
    After you learn how to do everything it becomes pretty simple
    Discount on food

    Cons

    Lots of adults work there, I was hoping to work with people around my age (19)
    Fast-paced
    Very busy depending on location
    Billions of different tasks that you are supposed to learn in a short period of time

    Advice to Management

    I don't really have any advice, it all just comes down to whether or not the employee can handle working there
    I think more training for new employees should be required because there's so many tasks that you're expected to learn really quickly

    Pros

    Great job to learn the basics of becoming a professional of representing a company. Learning to sell products, using the cash register, and working in a fast-paced environment are all good things.

    Cons

    Work/Life Balance can be difficult ifor you are a dedicated worker. On-call at any time and can work ridiculous hours.

    Advice to Management

    Please do make sure that you can try to have better health benefits for those who work full-time here.
