    I have been working at Wendy's

    Pros

    I really enjoyed the people that I worked with and the atmosphere of the group I worked with.

    Cons

    This was just a stepping stone for me, I worked there until I moved, I tried employment down in Madisonville, KY briefly but the atmosphere wasn't as nice as in the Princeton store.

    Pros

    Great introduction to the workplace for teenagers. I have sincerely enjoyed the fast paced environment although it can be frustrating at times.

    Being paid minimum wage is never fun, and you'll run into a few bad apples on the crew.

    Pros

    flexibility
    nice managers and coworkers
    was able to make enough money to survive while still having time for school.

    Cons

    Franchise owners did not want to invest the money that was needed to fix the store
    Wendy's International would not step in and take over the store.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be willing to spend money improving the store.
    Buy new equipment.
    stop trying to just rig together old equipment
