    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.

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

    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

    My Coworkers are awesome, we have loyal customers, and then there is the fries. Most of my Managers are fun and easy to get along with.

    Cons

    Sometimes you get no break, lots of standing around in the down time, only make 7.25. Every now and then too busy for the amount of staff.
