What you'll do

Our founder Dave Thomas had three rules for everyone who works here:

*Do the right thing.

*Treat people with respect.

*Make food better than they'd expect from any fast-food place.

You are over 16, right? The first two should be easy.

And, we can teach you the third!

Sound good so far? Keep reading!

What you can expect

Families come in all shapes and sizes, that includes the Wendy's family – we value diversity. But, enough about us – Here is the stuff you want:

- fun people, fun times and fun environment

- quality food - up to $8 free per day worked

- a schedule to meet your needs

- if you stick around a while we even pay vacation

- a paycheck – starting wages differ by location, but we’re confident we’re competitive.


What we expect from you

If Wendy's was a person, it’d be you.

Fun, fast, friendly, and never freeze your beef.

• Your natural friendliness is just one of your many talents.

• Solid social skills - act like your grandma is standing behind you (at least while you're at work).

• You take and receive direction like a pro.

We go above and beyond for the team and our customers.

That means:

• If something doesn't seem right, you make it right.

• You want to learn something new and be a part of something good.

• You pitch in and help your team and customers.

• You see what stock is low - ketchup, straws, cups - and you fill it back up without drama.

• You can handle a lot of stuff and not wig out.

• You're good with being on drive-thru one shift and making fries the next.

• You like making customers happy!

You must be willing and able to:

• Stand and move for most - if not all - of your shift.

• Handle weather related moments like rain at the drive-thru, taking out trash in the summer, etc.

• Wear a headset, use other restaurant equipment such as a register or grill, and follow brand standards and guidelines.

• Lift up to 25-50 lbs. now and then.

• For more information on specific equipment or job requirements, see the job description or talk to the hiring manager.

We get it. We get you.

Our food isn't one size fits all and our job opportunities aren't either. Whether you're looking for your first job or to build a career, a lot of hours or something to keep you busy on the weekend, you're an early bird or a night owl, we've got you covered.

We are also a proud equal opportunity employer.

This job opportunity is with one of our many franchisees. Independently owned and operated, Wendy's franchise organizations determine their own compensation, benefits and career programs which may vary from company-owned locations.
