    I worked at Wendy's part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Perfect first job, learning cash handling, teamwork skills, interpersonal and customer service skills.
    - Policies and procedures are simple, straightforward and make operations easy.

    Cons

    - Low pay rate for sometimes intense work, depends on store volume.
    - Some managers and staff don't take the job more seriously than others, making it difficult to work as a team in some instances.
    - Not a whole lot in the way of employee motivation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay a littler more or have daily incentives for performance - free meal for most up sizes sold, or best timers etc.

    I worked at Wendy's

    Pros

    Great coworkers. Best social atmosphere of a fast food job I've ever experienced, for the most part. Training is sufficient and you will know how to do your job. They pay on time and on the books. Flexibility. Work, life balance. Cashiering experience. Customer Service experience.

    Cons

    It's a minimum wage fast food job. Not much career advancement. Some workers can be harrasing and have negative, if not abusive attitudes. Company doesn't make an effort to retain employes, fires at will. Jumps to conclusions. Needs to go that extra mile in keeping people around and avoiding the high turn over rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't dismiss employes so easily. Give them a chance to right wrongs and learn from mistakes. You throw away one too many good workers for correctible issues!
