Hostess (Former Employee) – Barrie, ON – 18 May 2018
I loved my job at Wendy’s. I like meeting new people with diverse backgrounds and histories. Working at Wendy’s as a hostess was a fast paced job and never boring. The staff was friendly and always there to help in any situation. A typical work day was I would arrive and immediately clean all the entry doors and windows of the various hand prints etc. Then make sure that there was coffee made and if not start the coffee. Continually watching to be sure it never ran out. Checked the dining room for cleanliness and clean and disinfect any tables that needed cleaning. Again checking the windows that I could reach to be sure they were clean. Pick up used trays and take them to the clean up area to wipe them with disinfectant. Wendy’s is very germ free eating establishment. Every thing is disinfected! I would make sure the counter where napkins, lids for drinks, ketchup and other condiments were all full and the area clean and neat for the customers. Clean up any spills that may take place in the dining area.
I liked that Wendy’s offered us 1/2 off our meals, a bonus!
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Coquitlam, BC – 15 May 2018
It was a productive work environment to be in, the environment was friendly and so as the co-workers. It was a wonderful learning experience and I hope to carry this experience in the other places that I plan on working in future.
Grill operator (Former Employee) – Kitchener, ON – 14 May 2018
i did grill for a year there and i had a great time good staff, good pay, and just a good environment, one thing i i found hard there was when people would call in sick and we would be under staffed, we usually couldn't get staff in and would end up getting over worked.

As far as first jobs go, this one wasn't so bad. It was definitely what you would expect working at a fast food restaurant, however out of all the fast food joints, I think Wendy's is the most sophisticated.

Night Crew Staff I (Former Employee) – London, ON – 8 May 2018
This was a good first job, I learned a lot and made a lot of new friends. It was a good experience overall and was a good stepping stone for my current position. Good for a first job but no growth opportunity long term.
Multiple Roles (Former Employee) – Port Coquitlam, BC – 8 May 2018
Working to various roles can be difficult, but could also lead to different learning experiences. Whether those be technical, such as operating the cashier, setting up the alarm et cetera, or personal enhancement, such as multitasking and time-management.
productive workplace and a great place to start work experiance
Cook/Dishwasher (Former Employee) – Cranbrook, BC – 8 May 2018
rushed almost always, but there were always moments where things slowed down, management was kept up to date, and I found the workplace culture to be quite diverse. the toughest part of the job was equipment cleanup, but it wasn't always tough. what I enjoyed most was the people I worked with, knowing when to be serious but when to lighten up.
Even though it is always busy, I still have fun working there because everyone is easy to get along with and the management is really good.
Cashier/Customer Service/Sandwich-Maker (Current Employee) – Westbank, BC – 8 May 2018
Stocking and organizing everything will be the easiest part of the job and will be the most common thing that everybody should know. We prioritize the cleanliness of the store whether it is inside the kitchen, in the dining where the customers eat, or outside of the store. I learned to spend my time wisely at the store because every minute is important. I also learned how to communicate with other people better. Slowly, it isn't just my skills that have improved but also me as a person. And that is really important for me since it is my very first job. It is also easy to balance out school and work because the management won't force you to work that day unless you are supposed to work. You just need to tell them in advance that you can't go to work for the days ahead. The hardest part of the job maybe whenever there would be tons of customers at the store especially during the weekend. It would also be a lot harder whenever there are only a few staffs to help you with the job and there would be nothing left for you to do but work even though it is busy and stressful. But despite it all, everyone is very supportive and helpful. The environment is good to work at.
