A typical day at work would be cleaning and getting the drive thru timer under a certain time, making sure customers were happy. Everyone is friends with each other which makes it a good place to work.

I worked Wendys nearly three year, but whenever I ask for increment, HR replied me, you efforts are not satisfied, m asking, if m not satisfing you why m with you from long time,
I was working on MAnukau Wendys, it is the busiest store in New Zealand, full of stress all the time, but in reward we just got no any rising expectations which was so rude. M happy I left that place

My most typical day at Wendy's is most likely a really stressful day. Always on my feet from here to there every time, I work at the Manukau store and its a really busy store most times.

Not a bad place to work while at school or studying, I didn't enjoy working full-time there as it was repetitive and I felt like I needed more of a challenge. I did meet some great friends there too.
Pros
Cheaper Meals when working
Cons
No Pay Raises

Working at Wendy's has provided me with valuable experience in the retail industry, while also making me accustomed to the workforce. My duties largely involved operation and maintenance of the grill, as well as some food preparation, maintenance of the kitchen, handling drive-through and training new employees.

The workplace culture was average, nothing to complain about.


The hardest part of the job was dedication to night-shifts, balancing University studies with working long hours, and commuting to and from work, however I managed. Working during busy hours was sometimes stressful.


The most enjoyable part about working here was serving customers and receiving gratitude from them, as well as getting to understand the processes involved with food preparation and equipment use.
Pros
Employee Discounts
Cons
Long Hours

after being a loyal wendys crew memeber after 3 years i was not rewarded with anything, i had put work first for 3 years, skipping family events, school and other things to cover shifts. i had learnt every station and could work anywhere in the store covering any shift and as i asked multiple times to become a supervisor was denied multiple times, and other people were made into supervisors after a few months. if you made one mistake you were always blamed for every mistake that was made, just feel like after 3 years of loyal service i was not treated fairly.
Pros
the crew members were all lovely and i enjoyed working with them
Cons
long hours, abuse of power from management, no rewards

Honestly it's not horrible but it's really not great when you have busy days and are in High School or Uni. they ask you to work a lot and a lot of the time seem disappointed when you can't do a favor for them even if the reason you can't cover the shift is for a medical emergency. They don't seem to care at all
Pros
They're pretty chill
Cons

Good place to work only because of the company around and you’ll experience so many customers who are very aggressive and customers with complaints so it’s a good place to start working.

I have been working there for more than half a year now, but I still just get minimum wage.
There's no free food for staffs.

Always working for a long time (6 hours) without any break.

Typical day for me was running front line orders by myself, whereas everyone else was busy in drive thru. Meaning I had to face the flak if it was rush hour and I was behind in running orders.

I learnt time management and how to deal with stress


Management was not very fair, as they would talk in their own language and make me feel like an outcast.


Hardest part of the job is cleaning the dining room which included; tables, chairs, floors, condiment stand and toilets. This was done just by me, with no ones help.


The most enjoyable part was staff discount and clocking out at the end of the shift.

In my opinion, when working at Wendy's I felt more like a boss instead of a crew member due to the lack of management skills by the manager and assistant managers. Whilst I'm training 3 new employees, the manager is usually sitting back in the office, even when we required help during busy times. I believe that managers should be younger mainly because older managers are typically cranky about every little thing and are usually not in the mood to work at all and are very tired.
Pros
Discounts on meals
Cons
Not enough hours
