    I have been working at Wendy's part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Nice Crew, Good managers, nice setting. After working there for a year, it's almost like a big family. Everyone respects one another and even though it's just minimum wage, it's a decent job.

    Cons

    cranky customers. The worst part about the job is when you get people coming inside complaining about their sandwiches or their orders being wrong. If they would simply speak up and talk clearly to cashiers, mistakes would rarely be made.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Food quality, crew friendliness, and customer satisfaction would all improve if management would not focus so much on getting orders thrown in bags and out the window as fast as Lightning McQueen and focused more on getting orders right, quality, and the customer's satisfaction.

    I worked at Wendy's full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Wendy's is a stable employer, with many locations to choose from. Wendy's has advancement opportunities.

    Cons

    Food Service has a lot of pitfalls, no matter what restaurant it is. A lot of goals are in place and not a lot of support for new people, in smaller franchises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    always be training your replacement.
