    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.

    Pros

    Great people to work with, my manager is flexible with my hours since Arby's is not my main job, and the work is not hard.

    Cons

    Minimum wage and minimum wage work like cleaning bathrooms, dishes after dishes, and basically being someone's jerk. My back hurts when I close because I do so much work with barely any help.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Help more with sweeping and mopping, don't send people home early, pay more than minimum wage and people will stay.

    Pros

    It's a friendly place everyone was friendly and willing to help me if i needed it

    Cons

    I really didn't have any challenges. Except that I was having troubles with my right knee. Otherwise it was friendly place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I was unhappy with the supervisor I had when I worked for Arby's in Minnesota and also one of the co-workers there also.

    Pros

    If you have a good store, with good people, it isn't bad. As far as fast food goes - Arbys has good corperate structure.

    Cons

    High school drama, and don't expect to get promoted without forcing the idea in peoples faces. If you don't go in and tell them that they need to train you on something, it won't happen. There are also reviews every six months and the raises attached are very easily manipulated and often it comes down to favoritism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    General managers are focused only on getting food-cost and other bonuses, and shift managers, who get no such bonuses, are expected to do way more work than the pay calls for. I've seen two shift managers willingly drop back down to team members because it isn't worth the small pay increase.
