Decent Management, Good working, overall good environment.
Crew Member (Former Employee) – Wintersville, OH – 1 November 2013
fast paced, learned to keep a quick pace, people skills, patience, and to be kind even when people aren't exactly nice to you. Management overall was good with their employees, coworkers were great. Hardest part of the job is the customers being disrespectful, the most enjoyable part was learning new skills.

It's a fast-paced environment to work in. Very flexible with schedule. They have morning, afternoon, evening and late shifts available. You get 50% off your meal during break time. Made lots of friends while working there.

My experience at Wendy's was pleasant overall. I worked under an amazing set of managers. Our specific location wasn't as pleasant as the other ones and there were many times customers were rude to me as a cashier. Overall, tolerable.

I enjoyed working at Wendys' a lot. Everyone was Very Friendly. I worked there for three years and met many good people. It was a bit hectic at times, but in the long run it was a great place to start.

Wendy's has a very welcoming environment to both customers and employees. They have flexible hours and positive as well as hard working managers. They teach about efficiency and getting the job done well the first time. Sometimes the number of customers gets disheartening, but the team works together and gets it all done quickly and well.
CASHIER (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 13 May 2017
Working at Wendy's I found the people I worked with had become like a second family. I enjoyed coming to work, and working as a team. The hardest thing I had to cover come while working at Wendy's was learning the menu, but once I had memorized it the job went very smoothly.

i had a good experince at wendy's for the first couple years. but after awhile it wasn't up to par and i needed something new, the building itself needs to be maintainted. i was no longer able to stay there anylonger, i didnt have to much complaints about the staff, but just the supervisors, gotta work more as a team then individuals, if they responded and care more of there workers things would of been ok, the salary isnt s good as i wanted but hours were ok and flexible enough. i couldnt personally see myself going back to wendy's but i did enjoy the most of what i had to offer there and hopefully from what i have learned in the store i will be able to bring to my next job if not hope to learn more

First, it is necessary for Employees to be dressed in the proper uniforms and shoes when they go on shift (shoes are very important, If there is a grease spill then someone could get hurt). Once the crew member is ready for the day, they go about preparing the food for the lunch rush. That could be anything from chopping the lettuce for the salads to making sure that the sandwich station is stocked. It largely depends on what was left-over to do from the day before. When the first wave comes, everyone needs to be at their stations and working hard and fast to ensure that the line is kept moving both inside the restaurant and in the drive-through. Teamwork is the first thing that you learn to priorities while working at Wendy's, as everyone's job is the key to having a functioning restaurant. Through my experience of the workplace, it can be very tense during the peak hours, yet the slower times can be a bit dull. It is hard to find something to do, but usually there is always something that needs to be done if you are willing to look hard enough.
Discounted meals, friendly managers, good training
Unmotivated Crew-members, called too many times off-shift
