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

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

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
Managers

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.
Pros
Food

Fun and inviting amongst crew members and often takes into account your shift times and needs.
Sometimes the employee discounts seem a bit stingy but still can be good.

A typical day at Wendys includes preparation of food, customer service that is timed, a lot of cleaning, etc..
The training isn't great as you are just thrown in the deep end and expected to swim.

Just way too much pressure put on you by management.. all so they can get their monthly bonuses. A lot of hard work involved, and not much thanks for the effort you put in.

Co-workers are usually also upset by the pressure so not a very fun place to work.

Expected to go in when others are sick, and if you say no you get sh-- for it.
Pros
Half priced lunch when working
Cons
Not appreciated, and expected to work til you drop
