    Pros

    Wendy's is a great place to start if you're looking for a first time job. It has some of the highest standards in the fast food industry in terms or food prep, cleanliness, and work ethic. They also took time to train me and thoroughly as possible. If you're looking to advance an opportunity always arises and managers are known for having addictive benefits. Shift Managers would always brag about how they just can't leave the job because the benefits can't be beat. They also offer tuition wavers if you take certain courses (usually ones that pertain to jobs that benefit the company). I think the expectation are pretty clear when you're an employee for this company and that was helpful in my eyes.

    Cons

    The job can be stressful. Sometimes they want you to do a lot with very little. If your supervisors were feeling the heat from upper management then you knew EVERYONE would be feeling that same heat. So when things get tough for the company the stress trickles down very quickly.

    Pros

    Awesome managers, working an average of 20-30 hours a week part time, awesome coworkers, 50% employee discount, easy to work your way up the management chain.

    Cons

    Working with the public can be really irritating. They can be rude, ignorant, and just plain mean. I've had people scream in my face because their sandwich had lettuce on it when they didn't want lettuce..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is just an awesome company, I love it.

    Pros

    The best reasons for working at Wendy's was the ability of the crew working together to get the job done. We had the best managers ever.

    Cons

    you always received the proper training before being left alone to do your job

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In every business there is room for improvement. From past experiences I think the management team at Wendys 505 in Eufaula "ROCKS"
