It's fast food.

Crew Member (Former Employee)
Burlington, ON

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

ProsUniforms provided. Shifts with lots of hours especially if closing. Clean work environment that adheres to health standards.

ConsThe burgers are frozen contrary to what advertisements say.
The uniforms are awful, do not expect the pants to fit properly. Especially if you are a woman with any sort of shape. Upper management within the stores are typically terrible and incompetent, perhaps they do not pay enough to entice good management.

Advice to Senior ManagementMcDonalds appears to have great programs for students and those that wish to advance. Very bright people do come in and out of your company and you would be best to find a way to utilize them and keep them.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

satisfactory first job position

Fast Food Cashier (Former Employee)
Toronto, ON

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

ProsIt is easy to get hired as a student and they provide flexible hours. Adequate training before starting your position. The skill set learned from the position is adequate for a teenager. You will have responsibilities such as opening/closing the cash registers and completing daily transactions.

ConsThe managers act too authoritative in their positions and sometimes mistreat the employees. Most employees (specially the students) fear management, therefore causing a lack of communication between them.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
