Wendy’s Old Fashioned Hamburgers was founded in 1969 by Dave Thomas in Columbus, Ohio.  The chain featured square hamburger patties and Frosties.

In 1970, Thomas opened a second location in Columbus.  This location would add the first modern drive thru window in 1971.

In 1972, the first franchise is sold.

In 1978, the 1000th location opens.

In 1979, Wendy’s was the first chain to introduce a salad bar.

Hello my name is Angela first I would like to say I have always loved Wendy’s! I put in an application for hire at the Wendy’s @5905 Richie hwy Glen Burnie, MD, I received a Call for interview came in I must say the manager that did my interview Lamar was unprofessional,he was yelling at unsatisfied customer and at his employees my interview was literally 1 minute he was very hyper, seemed to be rushing thru like he had better things to do I said to my self Wow do I Really want to work here? Also looking around at how dirty the dining room and tables were instead of reporting this my thought was Wow they Really need me I would make sure this place didn’t look like this image is everything as a customer I would not of ate there. Lamar told me he would call me tomorrow to let me know about the job it was a yes from him considering I have past experience especially with a Wendy’s, and it would be day time he had to run it by district manger Melissa. Tomorrow came and went no phone call,I called the next day I talked to Lamar I asked about the phone call I was told I’d get he was rude and said give her time talking about Melissa that they had got a million applications and she’d call me Well he said he’d give me a call so a little over a weeK went by and I received a call from Lamar it was February 14 around 12:30 telling me I have the job I must be there at 2:00 if I can’t then no job! I was like okay I can be there Thank God I could tho being last minute I have Four kids I had to make sure I had someone to take care of the. Get there I met Melissa she seemed nice she put me in the system made it officially I am an employee ! Yay!! I was excited! She told me Lamer would be here at 4:00 if I wanted to wait he has my schedule! Okay so I waited hour and half. Melissa proceeds to tell me it’s night shift I’d be working okay didn’t expect that I was told originally day okay it was a problem for me at first I had to figure a ride I was expecting to take the bus there is no bus past 12 am. Lamar told me to figure it out and call him. So I walked out the store figured it out only was ten minutes he told me they found someone to work to next couple of nights for me to start Wednesday he was very rude. I came there Wednesday the manger on that day Marsha was very upset no one told her I was coming in she didn’t want to work me nor train me she’s mad cause no one let her know I’m like Wow I need this job I want this job it’s slot of drama The day I was supposed to start February 14 Melissa told me I could where the shoes I had on she would order me shoes Well the manager Marsha calls Melissa very upset what I’m I supposed to do she doesn’t have the right shoes no uniform she looks at me and says I can’t work you you don’t have the right shoes I’m like Oh my she’s trying everything not to work me cause she doesn’t want to deal with a New employee I looked at her I told her I need this job I will go across the street to buy spit of shoes that are suitable. When I came back she was upset I did I guess she didn’t expect me too! I worked that night it was horrible the way the store was. It wasn’t being handle correctly. After work Marsha told me to call Melissa in the morning for my schedule I called. Melissa tells me to take the next two days off come in Saturday yes I’m a little upset this was supposed to be full-time that’s how I was hired I didn’t show it. I said okay! Saturdacomes @2:30 I noticed 3 missed calls from Wendy I called back it was Melissa asking if I’m coming in cause,of the blizzard we ate getting it’s snowing. I said yes she said okay I will see you when you get here. We had got I think about 8 inches but I’m coming in I take pride in my job. It took me 2 hours to get there I see the store is dark I called,no answer! I called Lamar a manger I said no.one is. At the store what Is going on he said Oh Yeah they told Melissa to close store and she didn’t call me to tell me that is so unprofessional. I’m sorry. Something has to be done at this store I had to quit cause there is to much drama the store is ran very unprofessional there and they don’t respect there employees. I mean its no organization there the store is dirty and its not a healthy place to work.I would of love being a part of Wendys as i did before and been a good asset I would of made Wendy’s money and the work place would be organized the employees and customers would be satisfied always! And you guys too! At this store being across from Marley Station Mall is an embaressment i know you dont want it to be . I hope this issue is adressed.I would love to work at another store just not that one.

I currently work atvwendys on Patton north Carolina and one manger wrote me up for doing my job and lied about what she wrote mrnup for so I didn’t sign the paper so she called our big manger and lied about what truly happen because she is nothing but a bully she shouldn’t be able to wear a manager tag. Managers are suppose to treat everyone the same and I’m the dog when I’m there and she cussed me out in front of customers

I have been working for this company for almost 5 weeks now. I have gotten 1 paycheck of $157 for 18 hours. Where I average 25 – 30 hours a week. In all of the videos I have watched. It says Wendy’s looks after its employees. Well thanks to Wendys. I’m about to lose my truck and get kicked out of my living arrangements. Just pay me. please??
