Pros: half meal
Cons: busy hours
My work in Wendy's is good and very beneficial to me. I learned how to do sandwiches, prepares salads and other things even it is not related to my past job. Also, I learned how to communicate in a different kind of people. About the management they are good to me and very hard working a good example to the staffs. My co-workers are all good and very – more... approachable. The hardest part of my job is when it was so busy and the staff are only few. The most enjoyable part of my job are when I am in the front assists the front cashier and gives food to the guest. Also, whenever some of the guest are satisfied in my service, appreciated my work and gives a compliment. – less
Food and Beverage Server (Former Employee), Saint John, NB – June 6, 2013
Pros: getting along so well with my co-workers
Cons: unorganized hours
I started working at Wendy's with three of my good friends. There were many nice good working people there for the two and a half years I worked there. The managers are super nice and for the most part were always fair. I learned how to work in a very fast paced environment working in the kitchen preparing food for customers. I worked on the sandwich – more... station most of the time. I learned every position in the store. When I was working I was the person who would cover everyone on their breaks, then do other work that was needed to be done if it wasn't busy. At times there was drama with a few managers talking bad about the employees and the same for my co-workers talking bad about the managers. I don't think I was very fair that when I worked there for the time that I did I did not receive one raise in my wage. I asked and was turned down by the owner. I always had a feeling he did not like me much, there was a lot of favoring with him and some of my other co-workers. I was always doing extra work to make sure that the store looked clean. For example I spent hours scrubbing and digging the grease and dirt out of the tiles in the floor so they looked good as new and I didn't get any recognition for that. The thing I liked most about working at Wendy's was the people I got to work with. We all got along super well when I was there. We were like a big family. – less

A great place to work. Friendly staff and managers are always eager to have you doing your best and are willing to help you get there.
For those of you who enjoy a higher pace of work, this is a great place to be. Busy working conditions coupled with a group of staff that blend into a commercial family, makes this an exceptionally enjoyable experience.
