Shift Manager


What you'll do

Families come in all shapes and sizes. And that includes the Wendy's family-the people you work with as a Wendy's Shift Manager.

The stuff you want - like fun people, quality food, and a paycheck - done.  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 a fast food place.  No doubt you do the first two already.  We can teach you the third!

Sound good? Keep reading.

Making things happen is just one of your talents:

If a Wendy's restaurant was a person, it'd be you: fun, fast, friendly and never out of bacon.

Whatever comes up with a customer - good or bad - you handle it like a boss ('cuz you wanna be a boss someday soon).

You get how things work here, and make sure new team members know it, too.

You make sure food safety standards and procedures are on point.

What you can expect

We offer: A competitive pay rate, health/dental insurance, vision and Colonial Insurance (Life, Accident, Cancer, Disability) after one year of service, one week of paid vacation after one year of service, a free meal, paid birthday off, free uniform.  We also offer part time schedules for our shift supervisors.

  • At least one year of restaurant work experience
  • High school diploma or GED. (Some college or military experience; tell us that too.)
  • You've already led, managed and organized a team in a fast-paced environment.
  • Mad skills in problem solving, customer service and decision making.
  • Giving and taking direction like a pro.
  • Flexible work availability.

You must be willing and able to:

  • Travel to other Wendy's locations (restaurants, area office, etc.) as needed.
  • Stand and move for most - if not all - of your shift.
  • Lift up to 25-50 lbs. now and then.
  • Handle weather-related moments like rain at the drive-thru, taking trash out in the summer, etc.
