Crew Member (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – 20 January 2014
I would prepare food and be on cash register. I would greet the customers and everyone who walked into the restaurant. I would also be in charge of cleaning on some nights the closing shift I would mop the floor and wash all the utensils that we used.

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.
Cashier, cook. stocking, (Former Employee) – Prince Albert, SK – 12 May 2017
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
Fast Food Worker (Former Employee) – Montreal rue Decarie – 9 May 2017
This workplace had some serious management problems. Some of the managers were so incredibly authoritarian that it made work unpleasant and caused a lot of employees to lose respect for the job and the company, while other managers did very little which lead to some serious motivation problems. Despite all this, I still enjoyed working there because it allowed me to interact with customers and coworkers.
Drive Thru Cashier (Former Employee) – St. Albert, AB – 9 May 2017
The average day at Wendy's consists of getting assigned to what you are going to do the second you walk in and having no clue what it was you were going to be doing beforehand (The managers always seem to put you in your least favourite position) and then it's off to the hustle and bustle of the work day. The drive thru times that the company expects you to get are ludicrously low and basically impossible to reach especially with customers taking as long as they want to order. This creates a problem because then the drive through starts backing up and no one is getting through and your drive thru times are screwed up for the rest of your shift. Overall the environment is much too stressful for the average person and I do not recommend working here.
Management doesn't really care about what you want to be scheduled for, only one 30 minute break, no 15's.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Kitchener, ON – 8 May 2017
It was a good first job for me, easy for me to balance schoolwork, dance and work with the managers being flexible with my hours. Customers could be difficult sometimes but that's expected at fast food.
Crew Member (Current Employee) – Ajax, ON – 8 May 2017
Wendy's is an alright job for a first job for high school students. The atmosphere is very closed in and a little cluster phobic at times but is over all a decent job for high school students to get a job experience.
