Good first job for students, while also providing opportunities for advancement to a management position. Formal set of regulations and a large company ensures that employees are treated fairly.

Not to great
Crew member (Current Employee) –  Pickering, ON18 October 2017
Many of the employees are often rude and aren't accepting of each others different capabilities. When one makes an error usually rather than simply correcting them they are yelled at.
Pros
half off on our meals
Cons
long hours, busy with school, late hours

Average fast-food job
Wendy's Employee (Former Employee) –  Newmarket, ON17 October 2017
The Wendy's I worked at was more or less average, typical customers, typical fast-paced environment. One needs to be good at taking criticism for this job and needs to be good under pressure.
Pros
friendly co-workers, great hours and flexible schedule, keeps you busy.
Cons
some nights end at 2am, strict managers, fast-paced and high pressure during rushes.

You can garuntee bullying and harrassment
Server/Cashier (Former Employee) –  Barrie, ON16 October 2017
It is an awesome place to work if you make friends, but if you ever have an issue - it will not be dealt with by management. I was sexually harassed by a male employee and he was never fired even though he was groping female staff. This is what you can look forward to.
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Harassment

A get in, get out type of job
Front + Drive thru Cashier (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON13 October 2017
A stressfull and demanding job requiring 9 hours of standing and high stress rushes, you'll be lucky if management ever schedules enough people and be prepared to work under staffed and fill in the missing roles yourself.
Pros
Discounted fast food
Cons
Long hours, not allowed to sit during slow times, they treat you like cleaners and demand you to clean

Meh
Cashier (Former Employee) –  Nanaimo, BC12 October 2017
A typical day was a stressful day. Managers and supervisors who just yell and get mad when you do something wrong, instead of being a leader and showing you or letting you know the correct way of things. Management definitely had favoritism towards certain employees and made others feel put down in a sense.
Pros
Hours if you need them
Cons
Bad character

Bad
Sandwich Maker & Cashier (Current Employee) –  London, ON2 October 2017
Very bad place to work especially if it is your first job. They expect you to do everything and know everything about a fast food restaurant. Some of the managers just don't care about their employees and their health and safety.
Pros
Flexible hours
Cons
Very little hours
