    Pros

    Good food. The owner of the franchise allowed us to eat whatever we wanted. This is of course because no benefits are given.

    Cons

    Training was not sufficiently given to the owner. He had no idea what he was doing and the franchise allowed him to do whatever he wanted only because he was paying a franchise fee. Training was not sufficiently given and even if given, it really doesn't help to train the people to re-fry fries and leaving salads for more than 24 hours. No benefits are offered either. It is just one of the worst franchises to work for. It seems that the franchise do not really care about their name.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get yourself trained before you train others. Really check up on quality control as well.

    I have been working at Arby's part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Managers are great at doing their jobs!! The employees and managers are all very effective communicators!! I love that every manager I have had works with my school schedule both while I was in high school and while I was in college!!

    Cons

    The customers are definitely a challenge. Sometimes they male your job harder than it has to be, but they don't do it on purpose, of course. Keeping the Drive-Thru timer where it belongs is STRESSFUL!!

    I have been working at Arby's part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Pretty good management, mostly friendly environment, friendly coworkers, and advancement opportunities if you're a hard worker. Very flexible hours in my experience (usually pretty steady and fair hours) although any more than 40 is overtime and not allowed.

    Cons

    Can get stressful during rush times, and as with any fast food job a lot of people just don't work out or quit– can be very stressful if you are low on staff as well. LOTS of cleaning to do (although from customer perspective this is good) can be very hard on your body if you're working 8hr shifts on the daily. Service times can be hard to hit during rushes, coupon drops can make your week a living hell. Customers can be rude occasionally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect employees, cut some slack. Sales and service times are important but no one is perfect!

    Pros

    My teacher Ray Bly, was the best thing about this job. He show me what it really take to be successful in this business.

    Cons

    I do not like the "letting them go" process. When you find out your people suck let them go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn a lot quickly and move up.
