It was Fast Food!
Cashier/Cook (Former Employee), Columbia City, INSeptember 23, 2014
Go to work do your job and go home. I learned all aspects of working in fast food and dealing with money. The management was great at first but toward the end of my employment the management went down hill. The hardest part of the job was working with some of the co-workers. The most enjoyable part was closing.

Simple Job with Potential
Crew Member (Current Employee), Altus, OKAugust 15, 2014
Arby's has been my employer since April 2010. The pay and hours have been mostly steady. Daily work includes primarily taking orders from customers inside and interacting with them to provide a good experience. Other positions are backline, on which I prepare sandwiches and the other main foods for purchase, fryer on which I deep fry the side orders – more... and help expedite food to customers, and drive-thru, which I would take orders on over a headset, handle the payment for the order, and prepare/hand out the order. Management varies from hands on and helpful to completely uninvolved. For the most part though, managers as well as coworkers operate as a team and take care of business the way we are expected. Sometimes a large rush of orders will come and those are always difficult but we keep our heads together and prepare everything in an orderly and timely fashion. The best times at Arby's are when everyone works together and everything is kept running great. – less

Usually a fun place to work, structured, meeting a lot of different people
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Russellville, ARJuly 12, 2014
Pros: loving family atmosphere, always work to do, can usually get all the hours you wanted
Cons: pay was not great, long hard hours, physically demanding
A typical day at work is hard to describe because all kinds of things can happen. Your day would be very busy usually, especially during rushes like lunch, when school gets out and dinner. There is a lot of paperwork and counting that has to be done every hour. You have to help the crew get the orders out fast and if someone calls in then you have to – more... work that position if you can't get someone to come in. A lot of cleaning, restocking, taking inventory and money to be handled, and you have to do all this while training crew members and making sure you don't go over labor. I learned so much in this job it would be impossible to explain. Usually I get along with everyone so I didn't have problems with my co-workers, we all got grouchy sometimes but we always loved each other, it really is like a big family. The hardest part was the physical and emotional stress. Managers had to work anywhere from 45 to 60 hours and we were always sore and tired. Trying to be a manager, councilor, take care of angry customers and get all your work done before its time to go home was a lot to do some days. The most enjoyable part is becoming so close to the other managers and crew, also getting to meet all kind of people. – less

Fun work and friendly co-workers
Customer Service and Cashier (Former Employee), Arvada, COMay 19, 2014
Pros: half price lunches
Cons: no benefits, low pay for long hours
My time at Arby's was typically a six hour day starting with prep work of roasting the beef making salads, fries and potato cakes. running the register doing dishes and keeping up on the roast beef. Occasionally I would work the slicer and make sandwiches. Often I was front counter or Drive thru. If closing I had to break down our shake machine and – more... wash and put back together. The hardest part of the job was the two weeks straight of sixteen hour days. – less

fun work place and be serious when its time to work.
Employee (Current Employee), Williamsport, PAMarch 14, 2014
i do my job and do the best that i can every day. Over the years working here i have grown to meet new people and some i still communicate with even though they are no longer with the company. I really wouldnt say there is much of a hard part to this job, except when there is multiple orders and longs orders and more then one of them, it can be overwelming – more... only because you are trying to move as quickly as you can, so your customers are not waiting so long for their food. The most i enjoy is working with my employee's and ones that we can get along so well. – less

Fast food is hard work
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Gainesville, FLFebruary 26, 2014
Few realize how intense restaurant work can be unless they have been there. The first employee starts at 6 AM and the last may leave between midnight and 2 AM. Food rush can last two or three hours with no time for rest.
I liked Arby's since the products were generally more wholesome than your average hamburger. This also kept the work environment less – more... greasy overall.
The store I was at appreciated me and I thought I might become Manager at one point, but instead I returned to College to finish a degree. – less

For it being my first Fast food place it was very unorganized
Crew Member (Former Employee), Lawton, OKFebruary 4, 2014
Pros: 50% off food
Cons: no breaks, rude management
On a good day everything would be smooth, a bit unorganized.
The GM was very moody, on minute she would be nice next minute she'e be very unprofessional talking to the crew as if we're little kids. Managers did not do their job, constantly being rude.
I think the hardest thing about the job was the fact that when you were trying to have a good attitude – more... the work environment itself was very negative.
Best part of the job was that most customers gave positive feed back about certain employees . – less

Customer service oriented and usually very busy.
Crew Leader/Supervisor (Former Employee), Norman, OKJanuary 1, 2014
Pros: fast paced and fun place to work.
Cons: low pay but that is fast food.
The typical day was preparing food for customers and revolved around customer service. Training new employees with procedures and processes. Management worked with the crew as well as oversaw shifts. Each person on the crew had their specific jobs and they did them. Co-workers were mostly high-schoolers so the turnover rate was a variable. Started as – more... team leader/opener to assistant manager in a short time. The hardest was learning the managerial aspects of the job. The most enjoyable was helping people. – less

Arby's have good core values
GM (Current Employee), Radcliff, KYApril 27, 2013
Pros: good health coverage, bonus plan
Cons: not alot of family time
I am scheduled 9-7, I arrive at work between 8-8:30.
I like to get a good start on my day. Every day I jot down my to do list before I leave the house. I check inventory counts from the night before, labor, cash, make the deposit at the bank, do opening check list, assign duties and work assignment. During lunch, 11-2 I work the quarterback position, – more... coordinating orders. Afternoon is clean up
and more prep for night shift. Writing schedules, interviewing, staff meeting until 5pm. Working the dinner rush, covering breaks, many nights, its 8pm before I leave.
I enjoy doing orientation for new hires, I get to bond with them
and get them excited about the company.
What I have learned from this company is really analyzing the
the P&L and balancing the check book.
The hardest part is finding quality employees. – less
