    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.

    I have been working at Arby's part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    There was alot of good things working at arbys for 5 years. Made alot of friends, alot of the crew was cool and around my age. I had the job when i was in College so i could relate to alot of my coworkers.

    Cons

    They stopped the raise after $1 increase even after working there so long. Closing as late as we did on the weekend and then having to wake right back up a couple hours later and open was annoying.

    I worked at Arby's full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The benefits packets is comprehensive. Good insurance, vacation pay, personal day.

    Cons

    This market is a bit isolated for the rest of the company so it doesn't receive the support form corporate that it should. Also little follow up on Area Supervisors allow for them to be dishonest and overbearing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Human resource issues should be handled fairly, quickly, and equally. Do not allow Area Supervisors to bully general managers into doing unethical practices.

    Easy job, compliments and recognition when you do something well, some coworkers became good friends, close knit

    Very low pay for the amount of work, favoritism, drama, angry customers, small raises

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more hands on and focus on employees more because their mood effects how they treat customers

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

    Pros

    The free meal every now and then and nice, I have also met some nice people whom I work with that make up for some of the awful managers I have had. Minimum wage so you have to have a lot of hours to make living wage.

    Cons

    It's a pretty stressful place during lunch and dinner rushes, people are rude that come in there and have no respect for people just trying to make a living.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice to have managers not tell me how to hand out cups and people telling me i have to do every little thing their way is a little sickening
