Wendy's History

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.

By 1976, there are 500 restaurants and the company goes public.

In 1978, the 1000th location opens.

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

By 1983, there are 2500 locations.

In 1985, the company merges with Tim Hortons.

In 2002, founder Dave Thomas dies.

In 2006, the company headquarters is moved to Dublin, Ohio where they remain today.

In 2008, the company merged with Triac, owner of Arby’s.

On May 26, 2016 the company announced that Todd Penegor would replace Emil Brolick as CEO and President.  Gunther Plosch will succeed Penegor as CFO.

Today, Wendy’s is the third largest hamburger fast food chain in the world with nearly 7000 restaurants worldwide.

Hello I work at Wendy,s in Michigan I am 18 years of age. The Wendy’s I work for is located on Ford Road and Southfield. I have a big problem with my Supervisor. Her name is Beverly and she has a problem with speaking to me in a very rude manner she yells at me a lot and calls people stupid. She also had a couple of problems with my co workers who have actually left and found other jobs because of my supervisor. another problem I have with her is that whenever I write down a schedule for her she never follows the schedule. I have another job and I am going to school pretty soon and for some reason she does not follow my requested schedule. As of the past week she only scheduled me for two days and I could have worked Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and she only put me on the schedule for Friday and Saturday. She makes me open when I am not available to open. She also has a tendency of not putting gloves on when she makes burgers. I have seen her plenty of times where she made burgers without any gloves and that is dangerous. She have also talked about how one of my co worker’s face is funny looking. I am really tired of dealing with this in a work place where it is supposed to be a team effort and I have a really bad experience and as soon as I find another job I am going to quit.

Went to your store in New Franklin Ohio last night at 9pm. There was no one at the register. The only girl said she was minor and couldn’t ring while on break. So after 10 minutes, they guesstimated our order price, and I gave them $15 and said keep the change.
After another 5 minutes we got our food. I had mayo on my sandwich after requesting plain. Both Ketchup containers were empty, and the floor was wet and slippery from a spill.
3 people behind us in line left after seeing how long it took for us to get waited on. I don’t expect 5star service, but really? No one can take an order? Why stay open then

As a matter of introduction, my name is Sharmus D Evans. And, as of today I were sent confirmation that I were released from a full-time employment by Wendy’s in Merriam, Kansas because I was forced into a position to raise my voice due to being ‘deliberately’ and ‘intentionally’ subjected to harassment, physical assault, discrimination and unfair treatment by illegal immigrants, etc.

On or about August 15, 2016, I were wrongly were released from Wendy’s in Merriam, Kansas in retaliation for seeking and perusing immediate relief from several illegal immigrants who has engaged into collusive behavior in harassing, sabotaging, discriminating and treating me, as a co worker unfairly. And, as a result, last day of pay schedule before the beginning of a new pay period. My Wendy’s Crew & Team members wrongfully created a hostile working environment for me, in which, as I result, I called for police assistance to come out to the job so that I would not have to be escorted out in a pair of handcuffs – stemming from four of my Wendy’s crew, team member or coworkers wrongful intentions of sabotaging my full-time employment. To date, August 17, 2016 I am raising my voice because I have battled with this type of misconduct on the workplace for months without saying a word. I even kept my silence when a female (Hispanic) physicals assaulted me in front of paying customers that I attending at the time. Once, I had taken care of my lobby customers I reported that I was going to call the police. Yet, a few conversions were held even via phone. In house resolutions were made and agreed to. Yet, to date, I feel should I have proceeded with raising my voice about the above misconduct and wrongfully actions taken against me. I would still have work at Wendy’s. For relief, I am requesting for immediate intervention, and rightful place of employment with the harassment, discrimination and unfair treatment from illegal immigrants who think they run and operate the place with no greencards or visa!

I work at store 3907 for almost a year now. The mangers are very rude and hurtful to the employee’s. We’re under two much pressure in the night crew. Nothing is ever done right. Theirs a lot of complaints from the customers. The Manger that bags the food in drive Tru is a little ways messing up the orders and blaming it on the employees. Then when the customers come back she always tells just don’t come to her just give them a new order. Even if the customer don’t have an proof that we did. Then she always embarrassing the new people I’m front of the customers say stuff like. Get this slow person off of my cash. My cashiers are retarded. You irritating. Then she flirts with every guy that walks in using phrases as “I would like to pull on them dreads” or “you’re so fine” etc…… then she’s always talking about sex to the teenagers employees tell us about her sex life and how her boyfriend is 20 years younger than her, and how he be blowing her back out.

I visited the Wendy’s location in Locust Grove , GA a few weeks ago. It quickly got extremely busy and could’ve easily gotten chaotic but for the impeccable customer service that a young lady by the name of Kayla. She was calm, friendly, polite and professional. When it came time for me to pick up my order she did not make me feel rushed as most people would. She calmly fixed my frosties and made sure my order was correct. I expressed my thanks to her and made sure to remember to give corporate a heads up for this wonderful associate you are blessed to employ! Please make sure she gets some recognition and a pat on the back for a job WELL DONE!!!!

I have gone to the Maple Heights, Ohio Wendy’s over the last three weeks. I use my Debit/Credit card to make my purchases. However, my charges for my orders did not hit my checking account until yesterday. I was told that there was a computer problem. I left my name and contact information but have yet to get a response from the store’s supervisor. This is a big problem since charges should clear within 72 hours. I thought that these charges had already cleared my account. Multiple charges should not clear three weeks later and all on the same day! Again, this points to a serious computer problem and a big headache for your customers.

I would like to know why they repeatedly put my daughters pay check on a prepaid debt card! She gave them here checking information when she started and has given it to the management numerous times now. The prepaid card charges her to use it or even to transfer to her checking account. I have even spoke with management due to the fact it’s her first job. She should NOT have to wait 3 days and be charged a fee to access her pay check. I WILL Be CONTACTING the LABOR BOARD. This is not legal for them to do this to teenagers that are only making $7.25 an hour. They were also told by my daughter the hours she could work. 5 to 10 during the week and after 2 p.m. one the weekends. Tell me why management doesn’t let her have a break most days until almost 10 because they are busy. Some nights I have called her worried due to the fact she is not home yet and she’s still at work cleaning at 11:15 p.m. Managementhe needs lots of help at her location. They believe the teenagers they hire are stupid and won’t do anything. Well there wrong!!

I visited store #7406 on 8/4/16 at 6:19pm. I was less than thrilled! I went through the drive thru. I got home and realized that our drinks were bad, found a hair in our fries. I called and spoke to the manager Rasheeda, and she told me that the drinks were out and to come back up and she will replace them and the fries. I got home from second trip up there and the fries were brown and burnt. We use to eat at this store alot, but we have had so many bad meals and horrible customer service that we are done!!! In the past, I brought back my husbands asiago ranch spicy chicken because after eating some of it he realized he was eating paper that they forgot to remove from the cheese, had plastic in my kids chilli, potatoes so hard that you could brake something with them. I have been there so many times and got home and didn’t have all of my food. The crew that was working this evening is usually the rudest, but was surprisingly nice to us this evening. I usually drive up to order and the gentleman that takes my order rushes me and says what else do you want then before I say anything he says anything else then instead of greeting me at window he puts hand out for my money. The manger that was there this evening was talking about me when I was at the window one time when they messed up my order. I let her know that I heard her that day. Again, they were nice tonight, but we are tired of getting bad food! Order # 348271

I tried to fill out a customer survey online, but it will not allow me to fill in the date of the receipt. It will not allow me to continue the survey without that information. Makes me think it’s on purpose. You need to fix this. Customer feed back should be driving force behind your business strategies. Maybe it is, and I’m just mad. Let me tell you my tale.

I visited your Kaysville, UT location #00007746 today, 7/30/2016. My order number was #3104 if you would like to reference it. I ordered a Baconator, a Double cheese burger, and a Triple cheese burger. The young lady that took my order read it back to me. I confirmed the order, she gave me to total, and I proceeded to the window. I was given a Double Baconator, and a Triple Baconator. Not my order. I told the young man (Jonathan) that it was incorrect, and he said I could just pay for the additional burger. I told him I would not pay for someone else’s mistake. He told me he would take care of it. Then he came back and said the Manager would not take care of it, because it was a separate order. There was more to the conversation, but I said some unkind words and drove off. I was running late or would have stayed and spoken with the Manager at that time.
I later called and spoke with The Manager, but he said he was not the one that handled that situation. Pretty convenient if you ask me, since The Manager during the transaction sent Jonathan to deliver the news, and was not present. I explained the problem to him. He apologized, and then followed it up by telling me that today was Jonathan’s last day, so I would never have to deal with him again. Seriously! That’s how you defuse the situation? Train your managers, take care of your customers! I will never go to Wendy’s again, (not just that location) and all because of a stupid hamburger that probably cost your company a dollar to make. It may sound petty, but if this happens on a regular basis, you are going to lose a lot of business. From the comments I’ve read so far on this sight, sounds like maybe you don’t care, but I thought you should know what kind of people are running your franchises.

Since you refuse to make a public apology, regarding law enforcement being refused service at one of your restaurants, it’s no longer in my best interest to eat at Wendy’s. #LESMA

Maggie July 26, 2016 at 6:11 pm

Having read all the comments, I am sure, there seems to be incompetence occurring, which actually is from the top down! This has caused the public to become upset!
Your employees who are treating Law Enforcement Officers rudely, need to be fired! Time for management to put a serious stop to all of this. Get on your managers, to do their job.,,
Maybe you prefer, Wendy’s to shut down.

I’m so upset about your employee in Philadelphia who refused service to a police officer. I’m still waiting for a public apology…my brother is a police officer, and I can’t tell you how disgusted my family is. We’ve always been fans of Wendy’s, but not now. The fact that nothing has been stated is a huge concern. Wendy’s will no linger get my business until we hear a public statement from you all.

Deb Belote July 26, 2016 at 1:52 pm

I would like to know why you have not addressed the issue with the employee at your Philadelphia at 1501 Chestnut St, Phila? The employee there was fired, due to refusing service to a Law Enforcement Officer in uniform. However, there has been no public apology, and the manager of that store has been quoted as saying it is “a matter not of their concern”!! How is this not a matter of concern? Your refusal to address this issue is showing the public you do NOT support our Law Enforcement Officers! Your silence is sending the message loud and clear! We, the public, are angry and disappointed with Wendy’s for their silence. How dare you! Do you support the BLM people? Is that what this silence is all about? ALL LIVES MATTER, INCLUDING BLUE LIVES!! You’re disgusting and disgraceful to the Blue Family!!! #BackTheBlue #LESMA

I am hoping that the rude service that I received through the speaker at the window was a result of poor schedule or new on the job. It is really sad that we go to this Wendy’s to avoid the awful service at McDonalds and because we prefer the food.

I have noticed when the first window you come to that is usually the pay window is not being utilized the customer service has suffered but today was the last straw.

My order was taken which was two frosty and two crispy chicken has to repeat 3 times. I get to the window and I was handed 1 frosty, I gave her the money and was waiting for the other frosty to follow instead with the window opened still she proceeded to be rude through the headset to the guest ordering. I turned to say something to my daughter and I was summoned with a Mam in full attitude as she shook my frosty in front of me as I was inconveniencing her. I said “are you kidding me right now?” She said “what, I said Mam. And then slammed the window as she asked the ordering guest to hold on and she managed to get me my change and then finally my sandwiches. I let her know I would be contacting customer service, but she probably didn’t care because her name tag said Bre but her receipt says Kaitlyn

This took place at store #3226 on 7/23 at 5:08 pm

what kind of business is this. If a person wants to send an email, instead of waiting for ages on the phone for a rep, there is no option to do so. Its pretty sad if there is that many complaints, that it takes hours to speak to someone. I went in to wendys today in carson city nv 40033 the fries were old as hell and my cheese was not even melted. Let me add this is not the first time this has happend. And when i try to contact the manager at this wendys he never calls back. wendys get your business inline!!!!!! I am pretty sure Dave would not approve of this.

Went to eat at Wendy’s, it was the worst. My mother was served cold fries, and I had raw fries in with the cooked ones. The soda machine was broke and soda just kept running for about 5mins. before the manager came and tried to fix it, he couldn’t fix it or stop it from running. That was a lot of wasted soda. We had to keep fanning flies away from our no good food. Then we watched as a worker came with a cleaning cloth, she used that same cloth and went from table to table spreading germs all over the place. The stuff from the tables is now on the floor…no one came to clean the floor. We had to walk threw that stuff as we left. WENDY’S…that’s where you go for bad food, poor service, and a very dirty place to eat.

You guys charged me 129.74$ for my meal that was only supposed to be 32.43$. I went back and called and nothing was done because it was pending and not actually charged to my account. My food was also horrible! I mean how much salt do you think a burger needs? I had them fix that and I’m not one to complain. I honestly felt bad until I realized I was charged 130 freaking dollars for a mess up!

This evening I visited my local Wendy’s at 4960 East Bay Drive, Clearwater 33764. Upon pulling into the drive-thru line I was asked to wait a moment; a moment became 10-15 minutes. My order was taken correctly at the intercom: two double cheeseburgers, one with bacon, a kids meal and a baked potato. The young man at the cashier window was kind but I did not receive a receipt with my order. At the pick up window, my food and drinks were shoved at me in effort to rush me along, one bag was even shoved in my face as I tried to request a drink carrier. When I arrived home with my family’s meal, I discovered that one of my doubles was made a single. This was a simple mistake but I did want the food I paid for; it was a $23 order. I called the store and was met with the same rudeness of the gentleman who had all but thrown my order at me in the window. He did not apologize or offer a solution for the food I paid for, stating no mistake was made and hanging up. I worked in food service at one point in my life and I understand that things happen, but I was not prepared for the incredible rudeness I received. I do not plan to return to this location.

I HAVE TWO COMPLAINTS AT STORE #3114 IN HUDSON, FLORIDA
(1) On Friday July 1st in the early evening my son went through the drive-through and ordered two 4 for $4.00 meals and paid with his debit card. On Monday July 4th he and I got a notification at 6:12 PM while we were both at home that a purchase had just been made for $4.28 on his debit card at their location. My son immediately called the bank, and they told him his debit card # had been used for the purchase and his card # was entered manually!!! He cancelled the card immediately, and called the store manager who denied any card #’s had been entered manually at that time!!!
(2) on Monday July 11th at approx. 1:35pm I went through the same drive through, ordered a 4 for $4.00 chicken meal. when I got to the window I gave the cashier (who I have since learned was Christine–coincidently the same one at the window who apparently stole my son’s debit card #) a $20.00 bill and 28cents, she immediately handed me my drink, and the guy with her (GM Barry) handed me my bag, very quickly. I then went home. A few hours later I went to the post office to mail a package and it was then that I realized that I had not received my $16.00 change from my order at Wendy’s. I immediately called and spoke with manager Shawn. He said the shift had changed and the drawer had been counted and there was only a $1.00 discrepancy, so there was no proof that I didn’t receive my change, and there wasn’t anything he could do about it!!!
Really, this cashier just stole $16.00 and there was nothing he could do. He offered to call the GM who was there with her, and call me back. He did and when he called back all he could tell me was the GM saw nothing!! and he also spoke with the cashier (Christine) and she said no one left without their change!!! REALLY, she stole $16.00 by distraction…handed me my drink so quickly, and GM immediately handed me bag, and without thinking, I drove away!!!! I have receipt of the withdrawal of $20.00 bill from my bank just prior, and a receipt from dollar tree where I used my debit card, not the CASH, just before going to Wendy’s, all in less than an hour’s time period. When I got home after talking with Shawn, I also pulled receipt from bag, and there were TWO receipts in my bag, NEITHER of which were for MY ORDER!!! If this same cashier committed acts of fraud on 2 people in same family within a weeks time, I can only imagine how many other people she’s doing this to!! SHE NEEDS TO BE FIRED!!! I will never return to this location that my family and I have frequented 6-8 times per month, and I am telling every person I know about this experience!

Hi I’m an employee at the Wendy’s in Springfield Ohio on East main st. I have been there over two years and because I had a problem with one of the ex manger that worked there for treating me badly. My hours got taken away. The new manger that is working there now ( Scott ) he told me to call him Tuesday because he was going to be there all day and when I did he wouldn’t return my call. He said that he would put me on the vehicle and when I sent there to check he didn’t. And then when called him again today he said that he didn’t have to call and let me know that I wasnt on the schedule because he hired to many people. I have never had any write ups or anything like. I thought Wendy’s company cared about their employees but I guess I was wrong!. You have people that works there that does drugs but thats OK. I have asked for a transfer many times but I still haven’t gotten it. Kathy on South lime said I could come there and work there with her. I have asked to speak to Kevin so many times but I have not got to get.

Yesterday, Sunday July 10, 2016, my wife and I visited your Wendy’s Restaurant #7962 at 555 Hialeah Drive, Hialeah, FL 33022. It was approximately 7:20pm when we walked up to the 2 cash registers they have. We initially only saw 2 employees, one girl was at the drive-through window and the other was inside preparing food. We stood in front of the cash registers for about 10 minutes before a young girl finally came out to take our order. She had been called out twice by the girl tending the drive-through. She would yell out her name toward the back of the store. I don’t remember the name they called out but it sounded like one of those strange made-up first names that new generation Cubans name their children. The young (maybe 18 years old) girl finally came out with this face and demeanor as if she did not feel like working nor taking our order. I could hardly hear what she was telling us because she was so lethargic, but she did not speak English well. We finally placed our order, and when my wife asked for some napkins because there weren’t any where they should be, the drive-through girl went to the drive-through area and took about 4 napkins to hand to us, telling us that it was all the napkins they had remaining. This is not the way to treat customers. A person like that should not be dealing with the public. She was about 18 years old, had somewhat short brown hair, tan color skin and dark eyes. She looked somewhat white, but was probably mulato. Like I said, I do not remember her name, but I am sure you know who was working there on that day and at the cash register. I have to assume that the Wendy’s store standards also apply in places with a lot of 3rd World types, because we are still in the USA. Watch the security video and see for yourselves.

I was returning home from vacation and stopped at the store located at 1709 Boulevard in Colonial Heights VA. I passed by it a couple of times because the outside sign wasn’t on. I pull up behind a car at the drive thru and sit there for 5 minutes wondering why that car is taking so long when I hear that vehicle honking their horn to get the employees attention. The intercom spews out to wait a minute. Deciding to go inside, I walk up to the counter and one other person was placing an order. I then place my order, get my drink, find a table with my condiments and go back to the counter. The person that ordered in front of me is STILL waiting on her order. The staff at this store was unbelievably slow you could literally hear them dragging their shoes on the floor. After 10 minutes of waiting for my food(which consisted of 2 sandwiches, 2 fries and 2 drinks), we finally get our food one item at a time and the employee pushes the tray towards me and says “there!” I just look at her for a second before walking away to sit down. When I reach the middle of my burger, I noticed the meat was RAW! I’m so livid! It took so long to get my food and it’s still raw in the middle?! So now I’m thinking this is going to make me so sick. I go up to the counter and waited several minutes while one employee yells that I’m standing there. I can see the manager and the employee who handled my burger, and they stand there and ask the employee what I wanted. She says I brought my sandwich back and it still takes the manager another few minutes to come and see what I wanted. This manager named Devon comes up and I show him the burger, tell him the meat is raw and his response was “That’s not good”. No “Im sorry”. No “I apologize”. He had the gall to ask me if I wanted another sandwich! No, I asked for my money back. I wasn’t taking the chance that the meat on the new sandwich wouldn’t be raw as well. Those burgers are thin, it doesn’t take a genius to know when the meat is cooked. I’ve worked in the fast food industry and there is no way I would knowingly give a customer a raw sandwich, much less show any lack of respect. The customer service was far from satisfactory, the service lacked any respect, the food being raw is just unacceptable. The fellow waiting on his food said he frequented this place all the time and the service time is always way too slow. No matter the time of day. These employees need to be retrained the proper way to work with the public, and how to prepare food. I am so disappointed.

I am , pardon the pun , FED UP ….My wife and I meet another couple at least 3 times a week for meals . At different times . And at different Restaurants . Always at least once we go to the Wendys location on Gilberts Ferry Road { Highway 77} in Attalla Alabama . The food is always fresh , albeit our orders are seldom correct . Causing my wifes lunch hour to be hectic , and less enjoyable . However , Not one time since the opening of this Location has the Drink machine in the lobby been anywhere close to being stocked fully . We all prefer different drinks , There is ALWAYS at least one in our group who has to ask to have their drinks refilled , There are no offers to update the drink machines selection . We have to go and ask for refills , at times waiting 5 minutes . This is beyond frustrating . Our friends drive past the location in Rainbow City , just to come to this store . The employees are usually polite to a point . They do not like to refill drinks any more than we like asking . This has , as stated been going on for awhile . We always have overlooked it . WE LOVE WENDYS !!! But yesterday, July 9, 2016 at 4:30 in the afternoon . Came the final straw , The drink machine had no Regular coke , of any flavor . Only 3 choices in Diet . No Dr. Pepper in several flavors in Regular or Diet . I asked for my wifes drink , after first explaining the machine in the lobby was out . . It was supplied . But when I asked for a refill , the girl at the counter said to another employee , quote , These old people are in here a lot , and they always are so NEEDY . Let me tell you something , I was shocked , still am . And BOILING MAD . Our friends are both as I am Retired . My wife works . She has a set lunch time , when we come to this Wendys , she is always late in returning to work . Both of our families are blessed in that we can afford to eat out . We play cards 3 times a week , Both families have very nice homes , My own with a Gourmet Kitchen . I owned my own Catering Business for 15 years . I love to cook , but if I choose not to . Then I choose not to . The Burger King in Rainbow City has the same type of drink machine , We choose Wendys , for that reason in part . But we love the delicious food . The value . Just because we can afford to eat out often . Does not mean we like being treated in such a manner , This was a deplorable experience . Totally lacking in courteousness . Professionalism , and Manners , . I am extremely disappointed . Appalled and Furious . This Wendys is close to my wifes employment . Our friends dive 30 miles round trip each time we eat there .in total our group spent over 30.00 .. And we spend that and sometimes more at least once a week . I refuse to let this go on any longer . What a sad state for a wonderful Restaurant . Timothy Frederick

I went to the Wendy’s at: 10004 S Main St, Archdale, NC 27263
This is the Worst Wendy’s I have ever been to. Disgustingly filthy dirty with 3 people working there, long lines, and no manager in sight. I went inside because the line was so long in the drive through and there was a long line inside with the employees just standing around. Wow, this place needs to be torn down!!!

I frequently visit the location on 165 and Broadway , it was around 11:30 and I wanted to grab something to eat after getting off of work late i usually go around lunch time or a little before dinner , once I visit tonight saw the same old man asking for change at the door ( he’s been doing this for the past few years never really bothered me) I go in and there’s a long line I waited about 15-20 mins since only once section was open. Once I get to place my order there’s this young lady at the register screaming to other team members and complaining about cup lids . She asks me what would I like when I’m about to tell my order she start to talk once again to other team members about manager and employee meals when she is done she asks me and I go ahead and place my order while she is taking my order she start to be a little nasty and rushing me when I’m done with placing my order I move over and go to the pick up section and then the gentleman behind me start to place his order and I honestly dislike how rude she was being to him and how calm he was being first he ask the total to make sure he had enough to change and screams At him and tells him 12 something then he asked for a Fanta juice and she stArt to catch an attitude and he mention to her if there’s no Fanta he has no problem having a Sprite instead. she rolled her eyes when I got a glance of her name tag I read under her name MANAGER . I was shocked how awful customer service she had and I’m speaking because I’m a assistance manager my self at a fast food restaurants and in the 3 years I’ve been working as a AM I never seen that type behavior and I don’t understand how she still have a job ? This needs to be corrected

Went to the Wendy’s in Lenoir City, TN… The manager was the most rude and unprofessional lady I have ever encountered. I waited in line for 10+ minutes for two Jr. Bacon Cheese Burgers… After finally getting my food, I pulled one of the burgers out and the order was completely wrong! So, I pulled back in went inside to let them know I needed the right order… The manager told me she could not fix my order (even though I already had been there for 20 minutes at this time) because she needed her 2 dollar difference for the bacon. Which I understand that, but she was completely rude and was yelling at me across the counter inside the restaurant.. I gave her the two dollars because I was already late for work. Safe to say I will NEVER go back there and that every single one of my co workers knows what happened..

I was banned from the wendys at 132 north macdade, glenolden, pa 19036 by manager lisa for stealing a curtosy cup which is not true. my friend and I walked into wendys trying to get a curtosy cup of water and Kelly the cashier offered us both soda instead, we refused because we didn’t wanna get Kelly fired, but Kelly said that she don’t care what the manager thinks and she’s getting a new job anyways and then gave us both soda. then after we sat down lisa and Kelly came out almost running at my friend and I and lisa the manager said,” I don’t appreciate you coming in here and stealing my cups and filling them up with soda then sitting down, I have you on camera.” so I told lisa,” I’d love to see that, because I didn’t do that, Kelly gave me a soda.” and I said,” Kelly tell her!!” but Kelly said nothing at all, then lisa said she would call the cops if we didn’t leave and we’re both banned and so we left and later on the next week the cops were there and called lisa a liar for making a false report and I still haven’t been allowed in and my friend who also was banned is allowed in. so basically lisa discriminated on me for some reason I know not why and I’d appreciate if somebody contact me because I was told I’d be contacted over 2 months ago and nothing has happened yet, ever and basically if I don’t get an official banning letter I just will go back into wendys like I always done on a daily basis n by stuff. I used to work at this wendys and we made sure customer satisfaction was guaranteed. lisa the manager is always outside smoking cigarettes and as I walk by the smokes always going my way I don’t know why I’m disabled with epilepsy and diabetes type 2, I have scarring of the liver stage 3 and theres only 4 stages n you die, I have ramsay hunt syndrome, and you think why would I steal what would I have to gain by stealing a curtosy cup, view the cameras please, ask Kelly if she’ll tell the truth please, my names Paul Fisher my numbers 610-809-XXXX

This is the first time I had this kind of rudeness at any of the Wendy’s I have been to, but with someone with tattoos on there neck, and missing teeth as a manager, and looking like a thug well then you should expect rudeness. I rarely go inside to order, but this time I decided to go inside to order food. I put my order in and gave the young lady my card to run, and then she told me that she thinks that there is something wrong with there register. She ran my card again because she said my card came back denied, and then she told me that that has been happening all day. Well she called the thuggish manager up and instead of seeing if there was a problem with the register, he told me that my card was no good and if I had a good card. I told him my card is good and they need to have the register check out. He told me, there are nothing wrong with the registers and I did not have enough funds. So instead of get in to a argument with him I went to CARL’S JR to buy my family’s dinner. I will not to go that Wendy’s again.

Every Wendy’s that I go to has the air conditioning on zero, I think. It is so cold in the dining area of the stores that when I got something to eat, I had to take it home to eat it because I couldn’t stand sitting there any longer. My husband wore shorts and he was cold, and he never gets cold. Please find out why all of your stores are so cold that it is intolerable.

We went into the store at 1344 Eastern Blvd, in Baltimore, Maryland and had friends with us and both of them were also cold. Don’t understand why the air can’t be placed on a temperature that is comfortable to everyone.

I think that the staff have it cold because in the back, where they work, it is hot and they turn the temperature down to accommodate not being hot themselves.

I don’t know where to begin: first, a couple of months ago I saw the commercial for Wendy’s regarding the 4 for $4. My first thought was that was a good price. My next thought was, “I wonder if the food is as good as it looks on the television?” In the next couple of weeks I went to the Wendy’s in Beaumont, Texas and purchased the meal, 4 for $4. I ordered the meal with the cheeseburger and an Orange Mango drink. The upgraded drink made the price a little higher but acceptable. The meal was good and a good price! The next time I went to the Wendy’s close to my home: Wendy’s on Hwy 87, in West Orange, Texas and purchased the same meal, again a good price for a decent meal. Well, that was the last time I received anything acceptable from Wendy’s!!!
The next time I went to Wendy’s in West Orange, Texas I was in the drive through for over 20 minutes!! That is unacceptable!! My friend, who I had been talking good about Wendy’s to her, told me that she couldn’t wait any longer and asked me to leave the line as soon as it moved enough to get my car out. Well that took another five minutes before the line moved and then I could leave the line! Next time I went inside the restaurant, the same one in West Orange, TX, and was greeted with a sour expression, and made to feel like I was putting them out and this was a consumer-based business!!!! Well, I got my meal and left very put out myself. The last time I visited this Wendy’s on Hwy 87 in West Orange, TX and the final time that I will ever visit that store, until you put new people in charge, I again ordered the 4 for $4 and was never asked about what drink I wanted and when they gave me a cup I asked for my drink and she gave me an empty cup. I told her that I wanted a Frosty with my meal and was told that it would be an additional $0.96. I told her that it was the drink that went with the meal and she told me that it wasn’t, so I left and will not go back.
After searching Google to find your corporate office and send a complaint, of which I am sure I will never hear about this again, it was surprising at how many complaints I came across regarding your franchise! I see that I was doing good in the past to stay away from the “Fast-Food” industry and Wendy’s has just reinforced my decision.

My car broke down at the drive thru at Wendy’s in Pataskala, OH on Sunday June 26, 2016. The people working there were very polite and helpful! They tried helping push our car and couldn’t and went and found a phone book and brought it out so we could find a phone number for a tow truck. They were extremely nice and helpful! I want to say thank you so much!

The store in Countryside, IL must be another winner. I don’t know if they could of found more ignorant people to work the drive thru. No thank you’s, no hello, just rude, ignorant people who give you attitude if you ask a question or don’t know the menu by heart. Some of us don’t eat Wendy’s everyday. I had seven, BIG Kids in the car, tried to place an order, and in the end left for Chick-fil-a..where I was treated with kindness, ate better food and made them $70 more profitable . Based on all the comments here, Wendys needs to re-train a bunch of stores and employees…especially in how to treat your customers. Absolutely disgusting.

My fiance and I stopped at your store located on RT.17 Paramus NJ on our way home from a trip. I ordered a small Mediterranean salad. I was not asked which dressing I would like for the salad and some of the chicken pieces in it were hard and inedible. My fiance ordered a bacon cheese burger which was cold. He had just pulled out of the parking lot and could not bring it back to store. I have been in several Wendy’s in my life but this was the worst store I have ever been in!!!

We went though your drive thru at your Wendy’s Restaurant located 850 E HWY 50 Clermont FL 34711. We got a baconator Meal #5 and 4 orders of #10 10 piece nuggets Meals. The cashiers was very nice but the manager on duty was so rude.I didn’t receive our receipt for our order, i had asked if my daughter could please use their restroom but the manager said no cause they already mopped. The manager then gave me our food and said that’s all of it. We checked. I had to ask for our other 2 drinks and our sauce for our nugget meals, she gave me the dirtiest look like go already. But the cashier did give us our drinks and sauce after taking another order. we drove off but just to next door, McDonald’s so my daughter could use their restroom. good thing we did cause right when I got back to the car my husband was so disgusted with his baconator the bottom bun was filled, filled with a mountain of mold and the worse thing about it was the baconator was half way gone. We drove back next door to Wendy’s straight to the window. showed them what they served us. this is unexceptable….. this is wrong……..wrong

This is disgusting!

I just wanted to share my experience that my family had when we went to the Wendy’s restaurant in Galax VA. I normally don’t give reviews but this one definitely needs attention. As soon as we walked in the restaurant we were greeted by Patrick Warden, he was extremely friendly & went above & beyond to make our dinner pleasant. We had no complaints at all, our food was hot & the order was correct. Patrick Warden not only took our order, he also checked on us to see if everything was ok & if we needed anything. He definitely takes pride in his work & it showed. I have never been in a fast food restaurant where my family was treated this good. Patrick Warden definitely needs to be recognized for his hard work. His service was better than a lot of “fancy” restaurants that I have been in. We are looking forward to his service again.

The lobby was locked upon arrival, at 08:09PM today on 06/23/2016. We decided to drive through. We did not receive our order until 8:28PM. We witnessed several customers try to enter the lobby during the listed business hours, open until 10:00PM. There were no signs on the door to indicate that they needed to close the lobby early. When we finally received our order through the drive through, our total that was announced at the speaker was suddenly changed, and we did not receive our entire order. A man was holding the door open to the lobby when I pulled around to park and go inside. He (another customer) was informing me that they had locked all the doors and weren’t allowing patrons inside any longer. I was able to walk in (because he (the customer) held the door for me) and retrieve my missing items. I was not treated politely, and had to ask for the extra items they forgot twice. I spied 5 total employees working in the restaurant and witnessed as an employee point blank told the customer who came in behind me that he would NOT be served in the lobby and he needed to go through the drive though. NO apologies, reasons, or even politeness was given by the ‘associate’ that was behind the counter.

I myself have worked in several fast food and restaurant businesses. I would be fired on the spot for treating customers in that way, and would never be allowed to close the lobby early due to ‘short handedness’. FIVE employees is short handed? I was REFUSED my receipt three times, I suspect because they knew they were taking too long and didn’t want the backlash of complaints. SINCE your website only provides a phone number for complaints, and makes it nearly impossible to contact anyone important to make valid complaint, every single corporate employee will be receiving this complaint as an email.

I was a customer about two months ago at a Wendy’s located in Wixom/Novi, Michigan. It was hands down the WORST fast food restaurant experience Ever! The issues have been explained repeatedly, as I have made numerous attempts to resolve the issue through phone by contacting the number indicated (888)-624-8140. Each time I call this number, the customer service representative tells me that a regional manager will return my call. They never do. So, I tried e-mail and finally received a response. However, this has been going on for over three weeks now and the person is not capable of resolving the situation either. So, now a horrible situation has been made worse by the people representing Wendy’s, indicating they will resolve the situation and then disregarding customers.

I would like to start off by saying me and my Husband went to the wendys in Mobile A.L 959 Government street. We drove through the drive through and no one answered…no one asked to take our order. There were other cars in front of us that didn’t get any service as well. Might I remind you…it was 11:25 a.m. This is horrible service, there were cars driving up to the window after not getting an answer from the speaker.just to not get noticed at the window. We all drove off without any explanation on why they wasn’t open. This should be unexceptable. I’m a manager at a fast food restaurant and this couldn’t fly at my job.
Me and my family will not visit this Wendy ever again.. Poor communication and service towards customers.

I placed my order and then when I get back home I noticed my order was wrong. This is not the first time this happened. They do that quite often. This time I decided to call and let them know. The manager who identify herself as Andrea said to me and I quote. “F*ck off, a-hole” that’s the kind of people you have working threre. As I said. I will never put a foot on any of your restaurant.

Ordered food for my husband at store #6093 on Tuesday Evening June 7th around 9pm, Chicken sandwich, baked potatoe & 6 pc nuggets. The baked potatoe had turned a nasty color of yellow, like it had been sitting for a long period of time. My biggest concern & reason for complaint is that when my husband bit into one of the nuggets there was a HARD, SHARP, chicken bone that was an inch long & about 1/8th of an inch thick with a sharp jagged pointy side that jabbed him in the roof of his mouth when he bit down. I immediately called & spoke to the on shift manager, all he offered was to reimburse me for all the food we had gotten but said he needed my receipt (that I was never given) to do so. He didn’t seem too concerned or willing to do much else for us. What a horrible & unexpected way to get injured, although we are both convinced it could have been much worse had it been consumed by a small child. We still have the chicken bone. We think people should know about this incident & sure hope it’s an isolated one.

To Whom It May Concern,

A buddy of mine is an extremely loyal customer that frequents the Wendy’s location at:

534 State St
Madison, WI 53703
(608) 535-4364

Yesterday,06/09/2016 at 11:30pm, I entered this establishment with him as he ordered some food. I had to take a restroom break while he was ordering, and happened to hear the general manager Kim delivering some terrible customer service! She had a ferocious attitude with my friend, and was shouting at him that she didn’t like him. She rushed him while taking his order. My friend is a kindhearted peacemaker, so he didn’t want to file a complaint on his own behalf, so I am doing it for him. I feel that Kim’s behavior was unprofessional, childish, rude, and irresponsible. What kind of example is she setting for her employees as a manager? This type of injustice must be resolved swiftly, and I am hoping that this letter will result in some sort of effective reprimanding of this manager that will lead her to consider the consequences of such actions when dealing with loyal patrons of her store in the future. She had successfully misrepresented the Wendy’s brand to all who were present. Please, respond. at your earliest convenience, and let me know your thoughts on how this matter will be handled?

Thank you, Anonymous.

RE: Complaint against Bad Service

Wendy’s
Address: 555 Lancaster Ave, Haverford, PA 19041

Dear Todd Penegor/Gunther Plosch

I wish to make a formal complaint against your restaurant staff over their bad service, which spoiled my family meal.

On Saturday, June 4, 2016 I was greatly disappointed my family and I stopped at your establishment listed above for lunch. I placed an order of two children meals and two adult meals. When we sat to have our meal my 8 year old daughter opened up her cheese burger that was perfectly wrapped only to find a complete BITE was taken out of her cheese burger. We were all in disbelief, not to mention disgusted.

I immediately took this back to the counter and asked for the Manager. I told her how we found my daughter’s burger and she was just as surprised. I then told her this is disgusting and I want a full refund for my complete order and that I didn’t want any of the food we purchased. She told me she needed to contact the corporate office in order to refund me.

While she was on the phone the rest of the staff thought this horrible act was funny. The staff all were laughing and joking. I find this as a disgrace to have people working in a public restaurant with no customer service skills. My 7 & 8 year old daughters even knew that this was unacceptable and stated they never want to eat at Wendy’s again. I can’t blame them because I feel the same way.

This horrible act and service was very disappointing for my family and me. I hope that you will look into this matter and train your staff properly to have the appropriate behavior.

Follow Up Call from District Manager June 7, 2016 at 11:51 am

RE: Follow Up Call from District Manager
Wendy’s
Address: 555 Lancaster Ave, Haverford, PA 19041

Dear Todd Penegor/Gunther Plosch

I received a follow up call yesterday from Wendy’s District Manager Tisha Montague about the complaint I filed. My daughter’s cheese burger had a bite taken out of it. It was wrapped up in her happy meal bag.

Ms. Montague was very unprofessional when she called me back. She began with telling me she received my complaint and based on the company they don’t discipline staff in front of the customers they take them into the office.

I then stopped her and said,” this is not what my complaint was about how they discipline their staff” My complaint was that my daughter had a disgusting eating burger in her Happy meal bag and then how the staff thought this was funny and laughed about it.

Ms. Montague then stated,” That sometimes a thumb may go through the burger” I was blown completely away with that statement. I then told her,” I know what a bite looks like” especially when it was through bun, lettuce, tomatoes and hamburger” She then apologized, and asked me what is it that I wanted?

I told her I don’t want anything, but I will be contacting the corporate office. After, talking to Ms. Montague, The horrible customer service we received from the staff and also the District Manager was very poor representation for The Wendy’s corporation.

I would like a written apology to my daughter and myself from your corporation.

Wendy’s on east broad street statesville nc. 28677 went here after church and ordered a son of a baconator combo with baconator fries my baconator was old and dry and the cheese on my fries was old had a nasty after taste. When I went in they didn’t have a lot of people so as a person who works fast food I understand the struggle. The cashier was a sweet heart I told her to take a deep breath and relax she was good the only thing is I didn’t get a receipt and because she didn’t give me a receipt I can’t get a refund on my food and they also won’t remake my order so now I’m out of money so never again will I go to Wendy’s.

Never do I get furious enough to write a review but this was ridiculous. Stopping by Wendy’s located at 3006 Williston Rd, Flournce, SC, 29596, I wish I never had stepped foot in there. First of all we spent 10 minutes trying to place an order with only one guy in front of us, they didn’t even acknowledge that we were right on the other side of the counter waiting. After finally getting our food (so much for “fast” food) there’s nothing better than getting a degrading glare from a manager. Also, if I walked into any other fast food restaurant, asking for a large water would never be a big dea. However, that is not the case at Wendy’s. I got the smallest cup of water and after waiting all that time, all the manager could tell me is that she would have to charge me for a regular drink. Furious, they also forgot to give us one of our bags and spoons for chilli. After reading reviews about this location online, I wish I had read them before because I would not have been surprised by the service we recieved. After stopping by this location before and also having trouble, I will not support Wendy’s any longer as many changes need to be made such as customer service. There’s is no reason for anything similar to this to occur at any location.

You can’t do this to me… you cannot stop serving Ghost Fries, you just can’t. This cannot just be a seasonal menu item, YOU MUST SERVE THIS EVERYDAY OF THE WEEK!!! I am addicted to ghost fries and strawberry lemonade. I love your hot & juicy, love your fries and other items, but, I crave your ghost fries!!! You must bring them back IMMEDIATELY, PLEASE!!! If no one else has requested that you bring them back it doesn’t mean that they don’t feel the same way I do. lots of my friends feel the same way but just have not taken the time to inform you. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, BRING THEM BACK, NOW!!! Please don’t wait a while before bringing them back, do it now please. Everyone loves these fries, don’t treat us like you don’t value our patronage, I don’t want to have to give Wendy’s up completely but I will if you do not bring them back, I promise. PLEASE, be good to me and grant me my wish!!!

Wendy’s location: 44304 US-27, Davenport, FL 33897

Upon entering this location, we were handed 5 “free” frostys of which we found hair in. When we went to order our food, they were out of all salads, condiments, and baked potatoes. Then I waited for a solid 5 minutes at the counter, not once being acknowledged before speaking up about wanting tea that they were out of. We then waited another 10 minutes for food and when I went to pick it up, there was a lady standing there with my food, touching practically every chicken nugget on our tray of which was NOT HERS. She then proceed to ask for a bag for OUR food. I brought it to their attention that she is not me nor is that her food. Then they handed me the tray of food that was contaminated by the hands of the nasty thief. I stood in shock before snatching my food, returning to my table fuming. I didn’t bother to waste my time for asking for different nuggets from their ratchet restaurant to waste another 30 minutes. The nasty thief continued to try to take others’ trays of food. Siting at our table, we had flies flying around, landing on us and our contaminated food. A lady walked in with food she got from their drive-thru, complaining that her order was wrong. Shocking. Then people who ordered after us, still didn’t have their food by the time we exited the wretched place. And to top it off, the tea I waited for for 5 minutes tasted disguising. If I could give my review less than one star, I would.

Will NEVER recommend Wendy’s to ANYONE because of this experience.

Never once were we apologized to.

Has multiple horrid reviews.

Worst location.

Never again.

This complaint is about the Wendy’s location at 1111 Camino Del Rio South in San Diego, Ca. This happened today through a drive through and I’m furious. I ordered a chicken sandwich and requested it to be well done. The female taking my order kept speaking over me and I had to repeat myself three times. She didn’t acknowledge that I wanted a well done chicken sandwich. I get to the window and I asked the manager if my order was taken correctly and he said yes. I get my order and I checked the chicken and it’s pink! I walk in and tell the cashier (after waiting in the lunch crown line) that my sandwich was wrong. She takes it back and tells them to do it right and I waited and waited. 25 min later I go back and it’s still not done and was asked to wait another 5 min. I requested my money back and the cashier requested for the manager to go to the register for the cash back and he sent another employee in his place! He gave her the exact change I was owed and sent her to the front to give to me after he lied to me and said that my chicken sandwich was made how I wanted. I have to say that Bernice, the cashier, was trying to be helpful and asked if I wanted a frosty or a drink. I think it speaks volumes about how poorly the manager handled the situation while his cashier was trying to accommodate me. I am not going to say that I am no longer visiting Wendy’s but I won’t be returning to that location and I’m bringing it to your attention because it should be addressed.

Hello I am a former employee of the wendy’s located on camp Pendleton in oceanside California. I have to say this has to be one of the worst work experiences i have ever had. Our store manager irene was a very unfair and ridiculous individual. She came after our old manager had to leave because of a pregnancy. Irene quickly made her cousin a shift manager on the same shift as her with in only two months of being there. As stated in our yellow hand book family memebers nor couples are allowed to work together She also completely ignored individual schedule needs which were placed on our hiring paper work. She would place anyone to work when ever she wanted even after being advised that individuals could not work certain days and hours. Also another manager thought it was fine to take a fellow co workers order and place it under the name “captin kkk” . completely outraged but what happened i took a picture of the screen as prrof of what happened and instead to the manager apologizing for being so rude and offensive he threatened to write me up. This store has lost 5 employees in the last two weeks due to pior management.

Thank you

Every Thursday evening while on my way to class, I stop by this Wendy at 808 Rockville Pike, Rockville, Maryland the cooks and service is the worst. For some odd reason they can never get my order correct. I say I am going to give them one more try and go back again. Yesterday was the last straw that broke the camel back. I loved their strawberry and lemonade it was so thick and syrupy I couldn’t even drink
it, when I got home I tried to doctor on it, it had no ice or seem like one or two cubes, it was disgusting and I am so tired of calling back and complaining. So I have decided no more Wendy’s for me… I do not know why these companies hire these people who have no sense of direction and they want $15.00 an hire REALLY!!! And then someone like me experienced and educated they won’t hire how bizarre is that???

Received the wrong order not once but TWICE, gave it back..then cashier put the order she gave us back on the table, then gave us supposed right order. The supposed right order was wrong too. Under the belief the cashier gave the order she took back from us to the next customer. DISGUSTING. Called the manager, and was told RUDELY that she was at the window when it had happened, and that it was thrown out. This happened at 8:05pm Erie Blvd SYR, NY location might as well check to see if that was the truth because I don’t believe it.. Why was the bag put back on the table with and why did the cashier put a different receipt in the bag after? After receiving the wrong order TWICE she told me I can come back for a refund, but I was calling from home!! I asked for a credit for my next purchase, and she denied me a credit. Good going Wendy’s, you’ve lost a loyal customer.

Signed, an upset customer.

This complaint applies to the Wendy’s located on Reading Road in Evendale Ohio 45241 and is on behalf of my girlfriend who works there as her boss is seemingly giving her a run-around on her paychecks and refusing to enable her to resolve it.

This started when she wanted to set up direct deposit a MONTH ago now.
She got a bank account set up with a well-known bank, gave the information for the account to her general manager, at which point he claims to have put it in the system. Between the time he supposedly put it in the system and now, her old pay card was deactivated (expected) but her pay has never made its way to her account (no meager paychecks, I assure you… and rent is coming up on this one). He supposedly attempted to contact payroll who allegedly said that she would be paid in full on this upcoming paycheck. Now this pay period hit (Tuesday 5/24) and again she hadn’t been paid (so far).

Every time she asks for the district manager’s number her general manager tells her that he can’t (or won’t?) give it to her. She’s asked for a number to contact payroll directly, supposedly he can’t give her that information either. I’ve told her she can’t keep working without being paid, that it’s actually grounds for a lawsuit if nothing else.

All I’m asking is for someone to please help my girlfriend to receive her paycheck, she’s more than willing to submit a bank account statement along with whatever information is necessary just so she can get the money she’s owed for her work. We would just like to know what’s going on and for whatever is causing a hang-up on her pay to be resolved as quickly as possible as she’s living solely off her tax money at this point and attempting to support her child.

On May 23rd, 6:30 pm, we arrived at store #106 which is located at 601 McNeese Street in Lake Charles Louisiana. This was a dine in order. After placing our order and the “kids” brought it to the counter, I asked for fresh hot FF. As we were walking away to get started on our $16 dinner from what “I” chose because I like Wendy’s, I hear, “I hate when people ask for fresh hot French Fries”….. REALLY?????
The counter girl was nice, but all of them were standing around leaning….ya got time to lean ya got time to clean. Nobody came out to wipe down tables the whole time we were there, or do any kind of cleaning whatsoever. One other table was there and there was plenty of cleaning to do. Kids are lazy enough these days let alone being left with no supervision, what a shame. Wendy’s is thee only fast food I eat anymore, but not to sure I will be going back, sorry. I have been in the people business my whole life, unacceptable.

Dear Wendy’s,

I visited the Wendy’s location in Belton, SC on 5/23/16. We waited in line 10 minutes for a person to come to the front of the store to take order. There was no one watching the front. There were at least 6 people, including the store manager, huddled in the back just talking. All this while a long line formed behind me. When we finally got the attention of those supposed to be taking orders up front, only one cashier was sent to the front to take all those orders, man the fry station, help the cook put the burgers together and provide the service in getting out the orders up front and at the drive through. As we left, the line at the drive through was all the way around the store and the manager and 4 other so called employees were still gossiping in the back. This is not the first time this has happened in this store. The last time I visited the store in Belton, SC, the manager quit in the middle of the shift, leaving the workers to fend for themselves with a large church crowd walking in to be waited on. I will not be returning to this location until something is done to correct this problem.

Sincerely

A very disappointed customer

Your store on W. Nursery Road, Linthicum, MD is run by DavCo. They double billed my credit card for the same order. When I called the store they gave me the DavCo number. I left a message with the voicemail of the person that handles that and she has not called me back. I sent an e mail with my situation and the results are the same; no reply. I had $9.48 basically stolen from me and Wendy’s is the thief and can care less about it. I will be spreading this on every possible blog and social media that I can if I do not hear from someone at Wendy’s. This is a poor business practice.

Hello Ms. Emil Brolick CEO, My name is Tonya Owens and I choose to write you because I wanted you to know the actions of some of your employees at store 00001840. My family stopped by around 9:10pm Sunday. The employees look to be all under the age of 25. The young man that took our order said (yea) l responed by saying hello how are you. He mudderd something not sure. While placing my order I heard a VERY LOUD voice from the back say ( Get out of here Mother Fu!!!!!) I was floored and very up set l had my 10 year old son with me. And what makes matters worse the manager was right there allowing this to happen. This is supose to be a family restaurant and those type of words should NEVER be said. I will not be returning to that location there action were EXTREMELY uncalled for. l’m sure this wasn’t the first time something like this has happen. Thank you for your time. T. Owens

I visited a Wendy’s store last week located at exit 20 in South Haven Michigan. I witnessed first hand, a man ordering 5 or 6 FREE meals, badgering the employees, screaming at the top of his lungs, manager crying, cashier not knowing what to do, only to further here that this customer receiving this Free FOOD, has a wife employed there, he was demanding phone numbers, names , cursing, swearing, embarrassing the Wendy’s name, There clearly was no one person in charge, it was a complete fiasco, I my self was embarrassed to be sitting listening to all of this, then another man employee decided to add insult to injury by addressing the man, which further complicated things.Never ever will I visit this establishment in my travels, what on earth did this man do to receive 6 FREE meals, brag that his WIFE works there, create a situation like this and then 15 minutes later arrive back at the restaurant to complain about his FREE food..

It was by far the worst ever store I have ever seen.

I will never go back to the Wendys on Fairburn rd in Douglasville again, I order my food pulled up to the window and Kristian took my money and went to open the window to give me my change she says to another employee well don’t be a slut. I was very mad because I had a 3 year old in the back seat that heard it. She then gave me my change closed the window and she and the other girl were standing in there laughing. I don’t think that is professional at all and they want 15.00 an hour. Every time I go to this Wendys they are so rude I will never go back and it’s 2 minutes from my house and also my food is ALWAYS COLD nothing worse than cold fries.

Hi I worked at a Wendys in Abingdon, MD store 176. This place is ridiculous they work minors illegally (passed 10pm) and they do not train their employees. I was constantly being put on different things as in the fryer, drive through and cashier. I constantly made mistakes due to them not properly training me. They made me clean the bathroom all the walls and stalls head to toe and I did exactly as that in both women, and the men’s restroom. Because the manager couldn’t smell cleaner after I busted my ass cleaning exactly as they asked she tried to have me do it again. I refused to and was fired that day. On top of that I am also 4 1/2 months pregnant.

My son works at Wendy’s, in Fuquay Varina, NC, his first job. They cut his hours because they probably want him to quit. He called in to ask to come in, and the manager, named Ken, was heard on speaker phone saying: “I don’t want that boy in here. He don’t drop fries fast enough. Tell him to come in when he’s scheduled”. How cold hearted can you be? At least he’s trying to work. Train him properly. He just started working, for GOD’S SAKE!

I went to Wendy on Stumpt in Gretna,La. on 4/12. I received the worst customer service and product in my life. This is my 3rd attempt to receive clarity about the matter. Was called by a woman stating she apologized for my experience and she would send me some coupons for the inconvenience. Told me she was going on vacation and would contact me after she came back. She did not. I paid $10. Of my money hard earned money I had to throw my food away because there was pieces of plastic in my daughters Baconator fries and my Spicy Chicken Go Wrap was cut into 3rds so the chicken was so small I was disgusted. I also informed her that this Wendy’s have many problems and that this wasn’t my 1st time having a problem there. I have been going to Wendy’s since a little child and I love your new menu but I will not longer visit your fast food restaurant because of the quality of the food. You just lost a royal customer.

I went to Wendy’s Saturday night around 10:20. I ordered my food. The nuggets was cold. I ask the cashier in the drive through window if I can get some fresh nuggets. She told me the nuggets came up a minute ago. I said these nuggets didnt come up a minute ago because they are cold. She told me to pull up and they will walk it out. I pulled up, a minute later on of the workers bought the food out. I check the nuggets and they were greasy. I told him the nuggets not fresh that they put them back in the grease. I went in to get my money back and the manager had an attitude. She was arguing with me about put the nuggets. I told her I was going to report her. She said she didn’t care because every time I come there I always do the same thing. She said you could do whatever you want gave me her full name and said report me I don’t care.

On 4/16/16 -9:00p.m. This evening I made an order at the drive thru of Wendy”s. When I arrived at the window to pay for the products ordered I had an experience of disbelief. I was able to see the person cooking the food over the grill area. This was a Black Male with a large heap of dread locks stacked high on top of his head, as well as a large pile of dread locks behind his head and wearing a open top type ball cap to help keep the dread locks in place, and not wearing any gloves to cover his hands while handling the food. Another employee a Black Female looked nearly as bad with her hair looking all tangled up, long and hanging all around infront of her shoulders, not kept together in a neat way. No one in the kitchen or prep area was wearing any type of sanitary gloves or hair nets etc.. I will not return to your franchise to purchase food or anything else until someone in your orginazition takes the initiative to set some rules regarding employee hygiene practice, by being required to wear hair nets and facial hair nets when in the kitchen area prepairing the food. People have the right to go dine at any place that serves food without the fear of hair or any other stuff falling in their food from a persons hair or clothes ! The Wendy’s which I went to is located in Easley S.C.. I can’t be sure how this comment will affect your corporate people involved in making decissions about my complaint, but I hope it will open some eyes. I would hate to see or hear just how Mr. Dave Thomas would have reacted to seeing the same things as I did tonight. I sincerely would like to see some big changes to the hygiene code for Wendy’s go into effect and be very strikt rules for ALL the employees to follow. Thanks for this opportunity.

Went to Wendy’s March 29, 2016 in Carnesville, Georgia. Got a small chili and side salad because I am on a diet and that is something I could eat as a meal. The chili was juice with very, very little meat and beans in it. Actually I was supposed to use the chili as my dressing on the side salad. Chili is supposed to be thick not all juice. Normally I don’t complain about my food but this was crazy, when on the Saturday before in Royston, GA got the same thing and the chili was thick like it should be and I could eat my chili over the salad with a fork, not a spoon. That is what you call real chili. Also one of the employees was talking with another employee and she was cursing and you could hear her all over the place. Not a place I want to go back and especially if I had my grandkids with me. Talked with the manager. Comment: I am sorry! Did not say they would fix the chili.

My Boyfriend went to the Wendy’s of Mccomb, MS and picked up my favorite food and got me a number 8 because I have to pull a double today been here sense 7am and I don’t get off til 11pm and i started eating my food and took a sip of my drink I see something dangle from my chicken sandwich and there was a dang tapeworm hanging from my sandwich which makes me sick to my stomach just thinking about it now and once i noticed it i ran to the trash can and threw up ( i know TMI) and i have an extreme phobia of bugs and insects or anything that crawls or wiggles. So needless to say im still freaking out about this whole ordeal Im extremely upset for the fact that I work at a Hotel so I cant just leave and by boyfriend was already back at work when i discovered that thing in my food . So not only did i have a tapeworm i get to go even longer without eating i think that food should be looked at more and also i think all fast food should have fresh meat items and not frozen and makes sure that the food thats being served is safe to eat and that doesnt have a type of parasite in it

I work for the Wendy’s in down town Houston’s center point energy plaza. Today I called you in, told the shift manager I wasn’t going to be able to show up today because I have to fill and take pain meds today. The manager Heidi called me back, saying,” you know we work 5 days a week, you called in today, don’t ask for any hours next week, bye.” I thought it was very rude and inconsiderate of this “professional manager” to call me and tell me don’t cone to work next week without even giving me a chance to get a word in or explain. So I called back and stated, “No Heidi I WILL NOT show up today because I was just released from the hospital and I’m GIONG to be on pain meds, and its not only VERY unprofessional, but also VERY dangerous for me to be there around burning hot oil when I’m not in the right state of mind.” This woman just iced the cake with her inconsiderate rudeness, and not only that, I STILL HAVE YET TO RECIEVE MY GREEN HANDBOOK!!! The cook is unsanitary but Heidi does nothing about it. Will somebody PLEASE DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS???

My old 47 year old boss Karl Cady is having sexual affairs with 19 year old Toni Loomis. This affair has gone on since she was 16 years old. Wendys of Picayune Mississippi doesnt believe in raises I have been employed for 3 1/2 years and I only received a 5cent raise. The General Manager Shane Smith fired everyone who had been employed for 2+ years becaise he didnt want to give raises. My former employees mother was sick and he called in before his shift to report he will be 15 minutes late. They approved it and told him it was alright. But the next day ehich was his off day, they fired him for his actions from that Friday before. Also my close friend Alisha Harry was to be released from working ( by her doctor) because she had a hernia in her stomach that was growing too big it could have killed her, so she had to get surgery. She was out for 1 month and showed her proof to Ms Edwina Stockstill and Mr Shane Smith. The day of her surgery she was fired because they said she was providing false information. Then she came back and had to reapply and do the whole process over. And she worked her hours for 2 weeks and didnt get paid for it. Another situation is that the managers will yell and curse you out just to make you not want to work there especially if they dislike you. That place is full of shit. Im a single mother with a 2 year old son. I work hard every time I come to work. I ahad my days where I was late but dont we all? This place is also very filthy. They dint wipe under cabinets nor do they move machines to be cleaned underneath. This store needs a surprise visit and EVERY SINGLE THING SHOULD BE CHECKED!!!! Including walls, cup holders, food storage, frosty machines, tea earns, sandwich wrap storages and the liat goes on. They only do major cleaning when they know corporate is coming. Something needs to be done. Please and thank you!

Hi Mama I visited Wendy’s on Highway 46 in Dickson Tennessee on Saturday with my family. I think the store number is 503. I want to take a moment to brag here. I could talk about how clean the dining room was, or how the condiment station was clean and well-stocked, or how the beverage machine was surprisingly clean, or of The Smiling Faces of the staff behind the counter, or about how hot and fresh was our meal. All would be true but that is not the reason for my comment. At the time we dined it was incredibly busy. It seemed everyone in the place was working with four hands. That is when I noticed the manager, Helibeth. Rarely have I witnessed leadership as it was demonstrated by this young lady. She had her hands in everything. She was literally involved with every order at both the counter and the drive-thru as well as filling orders. All this with a smile on her face and kind words to her staff. You can imagine my amazement when she took time to come to the counter to greet my family as well as others standing near. What a champion!

I have been trying to get my w2 from Wendy’s to file my income tax since January.

I stopped working for Wendy’s in July 2015. When tax season started, I called and was told to come by for the information to get my w2.

They told me I’d need my employee ID number and that was the only way they could look up my w2. I obviously don’t remember my employee id number, don’t think I was ever even made aware of one actually. They told me I’d need to come up with a checkstub from seven months ago and that’s the only way they could get my employee id number for me.

I called employee hotline demanding my employee id number so I could get my w2. I now have my employee id number after a few days of making the call, but the link every single Wendy’s location has given me for the w2 does not work. I have tried on multiple phones and computers, it literally NEVER LOADS. Other former co workers of mine are having the same problem. I have stopped by Wendy’s two different times and have made several phone calls. I recently moved out of state and cannot afford to keep coming back and forth to argue with my old employer over something they legally have a responsibility to provide me with.

If I have to file my taxes late is Wendy’s going to pay my fines since they are the only w2 I am missing and the only reason why I have not been able to file. I don’t know what else to do about this problem! A former co worker of mine is now the new head manager apparently and has been ABSOLUTELY NO HELP.

I have never in my life been given such a hard time to get a w2. If you want to make sure you get a income tax refund, do not work for Wendy’s in Austin TX locAted at 2224 E. Riverside Dr.

My name is Lisa Blankenship. I went to a local Wendy’s today and placed my order. My family was greeted with a really rude”how can I help you?” (No welcome to Wendy’s nothing) on top of that the whole time my husband placed the order he was interrupted with “is that all” kind of comments. We were told our total (almost $50) and nothing else, not which window or anything. We pull up to the window and she just put her hand out for the money, didn’t smile or say anything even when she returned the change (with no receipt BTW). She handed out the drinks and told us “pull up someone will bring it out to you” and immediately closed the window without handing us straws. We waited, got our straws and pulled up. The woman who brought our food shoved the bags in my husband’s face I asked her “excuse me, is our receipt in the bags” and she walked away as if I said nothing ignoring me. Oh and she didn’t say a word and also didn’t smile or nothing. I proceeded to walk into the store to get my receipt, the lady who gave me it was nice to me which was great and unexpected. I left, got in my truck and immediately phoned the store to speak to the manager Iesha. I told her my experience and she did not care at all, instead offered the explanation that they were short staffed today, which has absolutely nothing to do with your staff being rude. I told her about me missing a fry and my fries being cold and she proceeded to tell me the fries were fresh and she’d replace the one I was missing. I told her I didn’t want the fry I was just letting her know.

After all of this I called their customer service number @ 877)949-3622 and spoke with Mr. Neal S. and explained what happened to him. He was so apologetic and concerned about their establishment not operating as they should. This gentleman was so extremely helpful and I would definitely recommend going to Wendy’s and will return myself soon. I am part of the working poor, I work hard for my money and refuse to spend it where my business is not appreciated, but I’m happy to say here it is 😊 please call that number is you have any problems, they will help you, not corporate!

I was an employee at Wendy’s for one year and was a shift manager when I was fired February 2016. I started working at Wendy’s on 14555 LaGrange Road Orland Park, IL. The restaurant closed and I was transferred to the Wendy’s at 16737 LaGrange Road Orland Park, IL.
Due to my mental illness ( which includes severe anxiety) along with bipolar disorder I have severe panic attacks. My store manager Tesa was informed that I have a psychiatric disability. On my first instance I had a panic attack, took medication which makes me sleepy. I had called off 2 hours before and not 3 hours before, which is company policy.
The other incident was a no call no show. I had another attack and took medication but this time I fell asleep. I contacted my boss Tesa to tell her the next morning. I went in to work and she put me on a 3 day suspension. when I returned to work she fired me.
I asked if I could give a two week notice. I wanted to be fair and give them notice, but I needed to get on the right medication so I could function. I told her that my mom is taking me to Mayo Clinic April 4th to get the right diagnosis and treatment. This way I could return to work with my disability under control. Her response was, “you told me that you are already on medication.” I responded and told her that I need a correct diagnosis and that I am not on the right medication. She replied ,”YEAH I CAN SEE THAT” and she fired me.
I filed for unemployment and was denied. I have tried to get a job, but I can’t get hired then leave for Mayo clinic 4 weeks later. That’s why I asked to work for 2 more weeks to get me by. My mom has contacted the Americans With Disabilities and I have an appointment with the EEOC to file a complaint for this. Under the ADA there are laws for people with psychiatric disabilities and this is an obvious example of discrimination.
Tesa (Store Manager) never explained or offered by law what accommodations that I am allowed under federal law
Below is copied from the NAMI site.
Ask your employer’s human resources (HR) personnel how to request accommodation. A request process may already be in place.
Decide what types of accommodations you need. Be specific. Be ready to explain how the accommodation will help you to perform your job.
Put your request in writing.
Talk with your treatment provider and ask if they can provide documentation. Your doctor can write a note, usually in the form of a letter, stating that you have mental illness and need accommodation. It may be helpful to share guidance on workplace accommodations with your provider.
Take detailed notes and keep a written record of any conversations you have with the employer. Keep copies of any emails you send and any forms you complete.
Negotiate. Be flexible and ready to discuss your options
My advocate is still waiting for the Human Resources to look into me being wrongfully discharged.

So today me and my girlfriend decided to eat lunch at our Carrollton Wendy’s. We get in line and wait to place our order. While waiting I have my arm around her. The store MANAGER was the one who took our order.. When it’s our turn to place our order he doesn’t greet us at all. Even after my girlfriend asked him how he was doing. Usually they take your name right? And put it on the ticket. Well needless to say, our name wasn’t asked for. Instead we got the initials for the word FAGGOT. FGT.
I’m irate. This Facebook post will not be the end of this predicament.

Hi, I’m a customer who bought Wendy’s food today.
The Service was good but when I got home I was disappointed.
I ordered a large chil but I receive a small one.
I enjoy eating Wendy’s. I choice Wendy’s over Mcdonnells now.
This is the first time, this happens to me and I’m hoping the last. I have tried calling the store but no one answered. I tried with the talktowendys but it didn’t worked.
I’m honestly upset and disappointed that I had to waste my time just for this small mistake.
The Order number is 3684
The store number is #00005794

I stopped in Wendys this evening -location North Bend Rd in Cincinnati.
We ordered fish but then was asked to pull forward never being told how long. After some time sitting, I decided to check to see if they somehow forgot me.
I enter the restaurant and asked the cashier “how much longer on the fish” Someone yells from the back “it could take about an hour” then he says “I haven’t even put it on yet”.
I told the cashier to give me back my money and asked to see the manager.
The manager came to the front I told her I wanted my money back and why.
She had head phones on and could not hear what I was saying.
I explained to her what the problem was and why I wanted my money back and the young man heard me.
He comes to the front stating he was just playing and had the nerve to have an attitude, but I was in no mood for playing.
To top it all off the manger Barb goes to give me my money back but doesn’t know how to cancel the order to refund my money.
This whole experience was joke but I’m not laughing, this is not how you treat customers no wonder they are losing against other fast food chains-“I’m sure Dave is rolling over in his grave”.

Hlo my name is larissa nichols,
I quit yesterday for a variety of reasons. For instance I walked into work yesterday, and I asked my manager “where do you want me ?” She responded “move some of us are trying to work” then I responded “letty where do you want me” later on in the beginning of the week I showed her my clock out sheets after closing Sunday and on Monday we sign a sheet showing how many hours we have worked for the past three weeks mine have been wrong and I showed letty my clock out sheets and told her I want it fixed her exact words were “there’s nothing we can do about it” the manager there is stealing employees hours and adding them onto the managers hours just so they hit their exact hours that’s stealing labor and money. So, I contacted my lawyer and I am during Wendy’s company for stealing and not handing out paper paycheck stubs because that is against the law.

This is gold, I was just a customer at wendys and they stole from me twice. Once cash (they never gave me my change back, and refused to fix the problem) second time ( employee stole my cc info and went on a shopping spree). Nobody will do anything about it either it’s like the Wendy’s corporation condones it, and almost promotes their employees to be thieves. Knowing that they steal from their employees makes a lot of sense now!

About 3 weeks ago, I went into work to open grill at 7:30am. My opening manager said he saw me riding my bike to Wendy’s that morning. I was in the mall parking lot and the ground was icy, so therefore I did not stop at one of the mall’s stop signs, not to mention there was no traffic due to it being 7am. I had been in an accident and hit by a car a week before that. When I got to work my boss Ari told me that I deserved to get hit by a car, and that he hopes I get hit by a car again. This was as mean as it could get, I mean how can a boss tell an employee you hope they get hit by a car?

Well I called HR and its been three weeks, nothing. I talked to my GM who came in that afternoon, and he said that I had to be taken off the schedule until this was further investigated. I was furious, bills stacking up, no work, for doing the right thing. I was told by the first employee help guy that I would receive a call back from HR within 3 days. So I waited 3 days, no calls, so I made a call back and was told it was actually 10 business days, so I waited 2 weeks, and still nothing. I have found another job but today was my first day off during business hours to be able to call them back. They keep telling me there is nothing that they can do, even when I speak to the supervisor of the employee help center.

The law states a worker cannot be terminated for workplace retaliation, yet its been three weeks without work. I have spoken with a couple lawyers who say they are coming up on deadlines or I will have a legal case.

It’s been 20 days since my last post, wendys still has not paid me, it’s been over a month now of my HR telling me “your paycheck should be in tomorrow at 11” and “your paycheck will come early this week” all of the time, but yet I’ve received nothing. Wendys, what you’re doing to your workers is ILLEGAL, not only by the state, but federally now. I just wanted my paycheck, for the hours that I worked and that its maditory I receive that, it’s not very hard. You guys are a $multi million, or $multi billion company, my paycheck is like pocket change to your company, it’s ridiculous that you withhold it from me.

Ewww.. that meat thing sounds disgusting. As for the labor board, it may take time, but I definitely suggest taking every scrap of paper (pay stubs, calendar marked with your hours, diary, whatever you have) to them to handle the corporation. Taking it all to a lawyer can be very costly but at least labor board doesn’t charge you to investigate. Companies like this need to be investigated or they will continue to walk all over the little guy that makes the money for them.

The Wendy’s in St. Bernard Parish treats there worker like crap. They care only about money not the customer. They don’t allow workers to have breaks. 4 store mangers 10 mangers and maybe 15 workers if that with worker. I myself use to work there about 15 years back and I trained many to look at the customer first. Treat them with respect and same with ur them mates. Now they disrespect there workers forcing and tring to control them. I don’t kniw how things are in CEO land but this isn’t right. Step up and do ur jobs or I myself will have this Wendy’s shut down. Several worker at this Wendy’s come to me a former store manger telling me whats going on and no one does a tthing. Get off ur asses and do whats right r get fat and lazy like y’all have been doing.

Hungry, wanting dinner, my husband ask if i wanted to get something. I had, had
salad from the 58 East Wendy’s Danville Va. restaurant at Christmas, while out shopping, remembering the “WONDERFUL service” and delicious pecan salad! I said go to Wendy’s.
We were on Riverside Drive MISTAKE!!!
First at the window I think the girl was lazy and distant not asking questions to fulfill me dinner order: like what dressing I wanted or extras for salad that was a with fee; if I want blue cheese sprinkled on it blue cheese is not for everyone and sign did not say it had that ingredient or it was in small print not seen; not letting me know all about the salad and options ……. as it was done at Wendy’s 58 East
happy works just like with joy ready to assist people like me who had not gone to Wendy’s to eat.
Well, after asking so :many times” for two THOUSAND ISLAND dressings for a FULL salad; this rude young man with no speech to communicate said you only get one dressing see that sign the manager put up. I said this is a full salad I need two …please get the manger …..He brought her with her eyes rolling and a mad face looking at me. I said please give me two dressings I have a full salad.
The manager looks at the young man said it is support to be two ……. to understand young man
he said there is two in bag >>>>oh, my, NO there was not two and he would not even give me the dressing i ask for !
going down the road hungry and it was dark putting dressing on the salad tasted of my now upset salad … mad … and hungry. OKAY, the salad was DIRTY u know that taste and a honey ranch dressing to beat the boot >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>..
okay, 1)the order wrong 2) server was rude and untruthful 3) manger rude and rolling her eyes, mad correcting the server (at 2nd window) and not even speaking a kind word to me just walked away….

Wendy’s you are not going to get me to buy $7.00 salad again !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i will go to the stake house!

at 58 East Danville va.

Go there and see if you don’t believe me ????
I would buy a $20.00 salad there !
I left with a smile !
My salad had my dressing, a napkin, salt pepper, all the extras I was entitled to …. some had fees.

I am a newly terminated employee who worked for the Wendys on the corner of Roberts and Hilliard Rome rd. I was terminated under suspicion that I had stolen $118 from my register. About one week after my termination, they discovered the misplaced funds stuck in the top of the permavault where I said it was , but I was not re-enstated, which I’m ok with. But paychecks were sent out on the 26th of December, 2 other employees, as well as myself did not receive their paychecks. I called my Wendys the following day and spoke to our district manager (Evan) who told me to call the ADT company, so I did and was told that it was a matter with my employer, so I called my Wendys again the following day(28th) and spoke to Evan again, whom said he’d contact the corporate office and get back to me in 2 business days, he failed to. So, I called again and Evan told me to contact the ADT company yet again, which left me in the same boat as before. So I called my Wendys yet again, and this time was connected with another of my managers (Cody) whom said he’d call color ate office and get back to me immediately. He did, which I appreciated, he told me to contact the ADT company, but to request to to speak to their distributive branch, so I did and was told by a man named Dave who told me to wait until the end of the set maximum pay period (semi-monthly) by the state of Ohio, then to send a complaint directly to corporate office on the 3rd of January. So I waited, then on the third, tried to contact the office on 3 separate occasions by house phone, and was disconnected immediately each time. I made no attempts on the 4th due to illness from food poisoning. Then today I called via cell phone and was sent to an oporator which told me to state my issue and also leave my comment on the Wendys corp website. It is 2 days passed the leeway period set by the Ohio Board of labor and is protected Under the Fair Labor Standards Act, that I receive my paycheck on time. It also states that I should receive double pay as compensation for the time I’ve had to spend borrowing money from friends and family to make ends meet, I’m not too sure on that, and don’t particularly find it nessisary. I just want my last paycheck, including my severance pay and the hours I worked (12) pay will be satisfactory, but if I’m not met or given my paycheck within the next two weeks, I will be forced to take legal action in order to receive what I am owed which, depending on how the situation goes, would result in me receiving double pay, or could go as far as a serious law suit granted the Wendys corporation applies resistance to me receiving my paycheck. I’m not trying to have that happen though, I just want my money that I earned busting my behind quarters trying to be the best employee I could. Contact me at (614) 226-XXXX

I am also one of the employees that along with Alex have yet to be paid when I was suppose to receive my final check by Christmas eve. it is now January 6 and 2 holidays have passed and because I have yet to receive my check I was not able to purchase Christmas gifts nor continue with my plans with my family for New Year. I’ve been calling the employee line for about 2 weeks now and every time I call they inform me that I will be contacted by franchise within 2 business days..I’ve called and given them my information at least 3 times now and yet no response. Along with Alex I would also like to just be compensated for the hours I worked. I would like an email back from corporate regarding this situation so that further steps does not need to be taken.

most of the francises have gone downhill, no more quality in their process,
price has gotten higher, most times if you use the Drive-thru, you receive

Store manager Carlos Olives and assistant manager Victoria are having a secret love affair . Also Victoria hired her blood sister and her boyfriend . They don’t do nothing . Also they have their , I’m guessing three year old boy with them at work . He would be running around getting into stuff . Parents don’t supervise or anything . I am a very hard worker and can pull my weight and sum . Also district manager Monica was aware of all this . When I confronted her about all this she got upset . Before my shift on this day which was 12/20/15 I had informed G.M. Carlos Olivas that I had plans for after work . She acknowledged me saying ok . But when the end of my shift came , all three managers proceeded to give me a hard time . Cause of how aware I was to what is going on there . They made me stay a extra hour and fourth five minutes . Having my fiance and infant child waiting outside in the cold . When I continued to ask to be relieved cause i had plans for that day after my scheduled hours . They continued to ignore me . So I left in anger . I just feel that all this is just a small piece of what’s going on there . I have attempted to contact human resources here but line has been busy all day and night . I don’t think that this is how Wendy’s should manage their stores , by treating the few good hard workers the way they do just so they can be comfortable at the work place by making it like home . I demand for action to be taken on all these persons who insist on working like this . The store in question is located in Silver city N.M. 88061 . Please if if you have anymore question on this matter you may contact me at 575297XXXX . Finally I would like to know the progress of this incedent . Thank you for your time .

I am writing about the Wendy’s in Boerne,Texas.

On Nov. 23, 2015 on the closing shift the hispantic manager had no employees at the front register, nor a employee in site. I yelled many times to try to get someones attention to refill my cup. Nobody came so i proceed to reach over the counter to refill my own cup. The manager came up and was very rude even after I explained that I tried to get service. He started trying to justify himself and became aurgmentive. Never did he apologize but demanded that I left. This is the same manager on many nights that locks all the doors to lobby anywhere from 30 mins. before they suppose to be to 1 hour before they suppose to be. He also allows his employees to hourse play with eachother, allows employees to play music on theor cell phones while working including the cashier at the register. He allows them to text and allows them to stand around in the lobby in packs talking to other employees that are not on the clock. He allows employees children in the back where food is being made, ect.
This manager definitely needs to be fired!

I visited the Wendy’s on N Cherry Rd in Rock Hill, SC and it was an unpleasant experience. My husband and I should have left after looking at all the flies taking over but we gave it the benefit of the doubt; wrong answer. Food was missing from our order and the fries were cold; not to mention none of the tables were cleaned. After consuming most of our burgers we looked down and realized that they were not fully cooked. We brought it to the attention of the manager and requested our money back. Well she was not happy about and proceeded to talk about us to the employees in the back and quite loudly. If that is what customer service is about then they won’t ever have mine again.

Today November 20, 2015 I visited the Wendy’s in Atlanta, Ga. On University and Pryor Road at 7pm 7:30pm I was in Drive Thru but there we’re a lot of cars so I parked and came in. First no one created me and then I had to ask was anyone working at this register then the young lady with two big braids said I am then I started my order which was 4- 4 piece chicken nuggets no sauce. There we’re customers that we’re already waiting I understand that. Then I waited and waited then I said to the manager with blonde and black hair with a braid on the said of her head and drive cashier we’re saying something so I said excuse me she didn’t respond so I said excuse mam still no response. So then I asked the cashier I said excuse me mam. How long does it take of 4-4 piece nuggets and the front cashier told me they had to drop some I told her she should have told me that cause I wouldn’t have never order I wanted along time. The manager heard me say excuse me her and the front drive thru lady was looking at me laughing so I asked the manager after i saw her fix three customers after I order I said excuse me to the manager again I said wow how lo long it take to fix 4- 4 piece nuggets with no sauce then she walked over to me after I tried several attempts to get her attention she said there is two orders in front of you so I finally got my food and when she was done fixing my order I saw them again taking the manger and the front drive thru lady with burguny and black hair was standing over by the fry station fixing my food she shove it in my had with no napkins and nuggets inside of the bag where the manager throwed them so I asked for the corporate office number so she called out to another manager to come up front I wanted no showed up to talk to me I was standing there like I was invisible the I went to my car to get my cell phone so I could call the corporate office when they gave me the number so when I came back in from my car I walked up and the the same manager that fixed my food gave me the number to the district manager Mr Osmand Martin but that’s not who I asked for so I reached to get the paper from her hand she shove the paper in my hand like she did my food so I told her I didn’t say anything when you shove my food in my hand but I’m not a dog then she starting yelling at me and started yelling back with a lobby full of customers and drive thru line almost in the street then she act like she was ready to fight so the whole crew grabbed her. I felt so disrespected I flew out the door I called the district manger Mr Osmond Martin and told him want happen I asked for the corporate office number I didn’t realize he was a district manager I thought I was calling corporate office so I told him what happened I never experienced nothing like this in any restaurant I have been in but Mr Osmond Martin called me back and said how sorry he was for what happened and if it wasn’t for the customers we wouldnt have a job but he said he couldn’t tell me Wendy’s discipline action is but he said that they don’t want a person working for them that makes a customer have a bad experience and that I can go get my 4-4 piece nuggets or combo on Wendy’s. But I want to make sure that for my inconvenience, disrespect and sham the was forced on me. The people I saw up front didn’t have name tags on and the front cashier was the only one with a hair net on the front drive thru person and the packer/ manager the reason I say she was a manager I asked for my money back and she walked up the front cashier with the keys and told to give me $4.28 out of a five dollar bill but the district manager said he didn’t have a light skinned manager I asked him if he wanted me to drive back to the store he said no then he said he was sorry for my experience and valued me as a customer I love Wendy’s but I just want to know why they gave me the district manager number instead of the corporate office I wanted to make sure that this doesn’t get sweat up under the rug I asked for my receipt back she wouldn’t give to me I didn’t sign anything and she took money out the front register with the key and gave me cash. I want my voice to be her they need to make sure employee have 100% satification not 100% dissatisfied.

The new soda fountains that everyone has switched to, is ruining the taste of your soda. It doesn’t matter what you order, it tastes like every flavor in the machine is in your glass. Horrible. Wendy’s used to have great tasting soda, but no more!
I can’t believe Coca-Cola lets this happen to their product. So much for quality control.

We went to the Wendy’s drive thru in Commerce, mi on 14 mile road. I ordered a fish sandwich combo, when we arrived at the next window to pay, I asked that no sauce be added, the cashier said the sandwich was already done, I was perplexed at how quickly I received this meal. When I ate my fish sandwich and fries I was very disappointed to realize that my food was cold and seemed old, ends of the fish were hard. My fiancé ordered a combo and experienced the same thing, disappointment with cold /old food. We did not go back to complain because the staff were rude and short after I asked about the calorie count in the fish sandwich and if their green tea was unsweetened. Upon parking to eat, I looked around the parking lot and drive thru, I saw that they were slow and had no other customers behind us. My question is why they didn’t cook our food fresh considering that they were not busy…The lady who cashed us out was pleasant but that did not make up for our bad experience there that day..Oddly enough I rarely eat at fast food chains, so I was looking forward to indulging on some hot, fresh fries and a fresh fish sandwich.

My daughter works here the Wendy’s in Baybrook Mall and I am about to make her quit
the managers there Sandra and Amanda are favoring an employee they lie for this girl named Mia. Mia lies and tells her grandmother she is at work and she is not! She goes to be with one of her multiple guy friends. These two mangers are liars and I dnt wnt my daughter around people like that the Head manager Debra doesn’t care either! Wendy Corporate needs to go and talk to these people and maybe even clean house because one people start to knw what’s going on behind the scenes they will not go there the atmosphere is bad to work in period. Sandra was pulling on my daughter’s shirt one day in front of a customer all because she wanted to ask her something and then she tries to have individual conversation with my daughter like” do u like me” my daughter is a minor and doesn’t need to speak to anyone in private for no matter but all of this is nothing but a glass of anxiety for her n me so I will be removing my daughter from this bad working non professional work space. I hope someone important sees this comment n go check n do some investigating because it needs it!

I also work at Wendy’s and every bone in my body is telling me to quit. Im hard of hearing so i have to deal with employees gossiping about me and laughing instead of helping me understand. There is too much favoritism going on. Since some of the employees are the managers favorite, they can do no wrong (talking bad about the customers, arguing with customers, flirting and giving out free food)…..but if i make one mistake, my job is threatened. The list goes on. Im looking to sue.

I am writing you about frequent friends and family complaints about th 25th Street location in Cleveland, TN. Over the passed several months the experiences continue to worsen. Frankly, I quit going to that particular Wendy’s due to bad tasting food and drink and poor service. Today, my daughter went to that location for a drive trough order and the orders were wrong and the order lacked straws, condiments or other parts of the order.

If that were my business, I would send fake customers to better understand the deficiencies and put out a new management sign.

I hope this helps.

I have to give Wendy’s in pikeville, ky a very strong compliment especially the Wendy’s at coal run the service is great from everyone. The main guy manager is great he pleases the customer.. Great job. I’m so glad ur not like one of the 100 McDonald’s in pikeville and charge for ranch for ur salad or chicken nuggets.

I went to Wendy’s on 77th Parallell in Kansas City KS 66112 for breakfast today. I had previously sworn off coming here after receiving cold food, terrible customer service, and wrong orders. Today was no exception. What really bothered me though was the employee sitting across from me surfing the Internet on her computer. I don’t think that’s what your paying your employees to do. But it would explain the horrible attention to customer service.

I live in the area of Wendy’s store #1303 located at 1235 South Hairston Road in Stone Mountain Georgia. In the past year I have visited this location and have left unsatisfied. The customer service is unbelievably inadequate. Ninety percent of the time I leave with nothing because they do not have what I want, specifically potatoes and salads. I have asked cashiers, shift and store managers about this to no avail. Finally, I contacted Randy, the district manager in May or June. We have spoken on several occasions about this location. He has given me coupons and lunch on him. I told him I would visit the location a few more times as it is the closest to home and work. However, I mentioned concerns about the level of service. Specific incidences include the following:
Ordering potatoes and they had none.
Ordering potatoes and they had some but told me they did not (phoned manager after leaving). She told me to come back. I went back the next day and got free potatoes.
Ordering potatoes in drive thru, waiting, driving around to be told they had none.
Ordering a salad, paying, waiting only to be called to the counter to be told there were none. The truck did not come. When Chanti, the manager, came to the register to refund my money, she said they had a new system and there used to be a refund button. None of which is my concern.

This in addition to long wait times and filthy conditions such as flies in the dining room and greasy, slippery floors.

Wednesday, September 9th at 4:53PM I went to the drive thru. The panels on the menu were missing. When the person on drive thru, Tykeria, finally spoke she said, “Go ahead with your order.” I ordered a meal with the intention of using a coupon from Randy which I failed to mention when ordering. I asked about potatoes. There were none as usual. When I pulled around I mentioned the coupon. Tykeria huffed and said, “Can you do me a favor next time? Let me know when you have one of these.” She yelled for the manager saying, “Come do this!” Chanti, the manager, came and completed the order. Tykeria went around the corner and stared at us. I stared back until she looked away. In the meantime, I read the refrigerator which had prompts for people working in the drive thru. “Hello my name is. Would you like a 4 dollar meal, no hard buns, soft buns are happy buns and so on. The refrigerator was written on from top to bottom. Chanti came to the window grinning and asked if we would like ketchup.

I immediately called Randy to report yet another incident. I asked for the address to the corporate office as I feel I have exhausted all other efforts. There will not be a next time for me at store #1303. I am seriously considering eliminating Wendy’s from my diet.

Please feel free to contact me.

I went to the wendys In Amsterdam, NY in the Town Square at 9:30pm on 10/13/15 and i had to go back at 10pm because the order wasnt right at all my spicy chicken wasnt even spicy chicken and it only had cheese no mayo and no lettuce. My fiances triple burger was suppose to be no tomato and there was tomato both times and his first burger wasnt wrapped right at all it was open and the mayo and ketchup was all over the bag and my second spicy chicken didnt have cheese or lettuce just little tiny bit of mayo, also the bake potato was cold and so were the fries, so the only thing they got right was the drinks. Also when i went back to return the food and ask for new food they laughed In our faces i have no idea what was so funny about getting an order completely wrong and they were very rude. It makes me never want to go to that wendys ever again. They give shitty service and don’t know how to treat their customers. I will NEVER go to that wendys, not even if some one paid me to go there.

My boyfriend and I got extremely ill to our stomachs after having shared an order of your chicken nuggets at your Punta Cana International Airport last Thursday, October 1st, and are still suffering the consequences four days later. We have never had this experience at any other location in the US, or outside of the US, and thought it was important for you to know about it. We hope you are able to resolve this matter to ensure no one else is a victim of this. Thank you for your attention to this matter, please contact me for further details.

Placed an order after waiting an excessive amount of time to get up to the counter at the Wendys on Dewey Ave in Rochester NY. The man ahead of me was so disgusted that he jumped over the bars to get out of line and get out of the poorly managed place. When I got home (7 min drive) my order of 4 pulled port sandwiches were stone cold. At the price of $4.99 apiece that is unacceptable. Poor service coupled with bad food is clear to me that this place doesn’t care about standards or their customers. This is the second time I have been in this Wendys and it’s always the same scenario. Now I can tell you that I will never step in this establishment again and will tell everyone I know to do the same. You are doomed with this attitude and standard of service. You better step it up or close it down!

I am in Pittsburgh PA. I worked at Wendy’s, it’s one of their training locations. Hands always washed, gloves always on, hair always polled back. Never leaning. I was proud to say I worked there. Trained in different areas of the restaurant. If business is slow find things to do. When I go to a Wendy’s Restaurant I expect to see hair pulled back, look busy and be respectful at all times. Westview, PA location needs to have their hair(dreadlocks) pulled back too. Especially when making sandwiches.

So all it was was a huge piece of bread I bought along with Soggy fries! This Wendy’s needs some help in the kitchen!

I think Wendy’s needs a makeover.Wendy’s needs to put in a High tech arcade room,bowling alley,gift shop,interactive travel destination TVs ,other city’s and country’s need to be shown.All seats inside the restaurant needs the comfort of a recliner.Sports TVs should be all around the restaurant.Credit card slots with computerised menus should be built into the tables.The same around the walls of the restaurant.This reduces wait time.Video slot machines with no pay out should be installed.

My grandson is a new employee at wendys. .and I am stunned over the way one particular manager treats the employees. .most days he works a 9hr shift and is never given a break or a lunch..if the employee is over 18 ohio law says you don’t have to give breaks so she doesnt..(only to minors)could not imagine going to work daily and never getting a break..he is scheduled 7 days a week. .sometimes 3-4 hrs in morning and 5-6 that evening. .I’m guessing this wendys doesn’t want to keep employees working there long ..I guess that’s why there is always a new crew..can’t keep staff…

Wendy’s on Fraser Blvd Memphis TN 38127 sure leaves alot to be desired. After walking 3 miles to get dinner forkur family we get home and the burgers were dried up burnt and disgusting. My partner went back and asked for them to be replaced. They said sure but you have to pay for them. After walking back home another 3 miles we were ready to eat. Of course these were the same dried out burnt pieces of meat. We sent in a complaint via email and the manager Devin Walker said her first concern was customer satisfaction and would replace the meals at no charge. So we called today to see if she was there because we were going to go back for lunch. She said what they gave us was jr burgers but instead of honoring her word she decided to argue about what we ordered and paid for. Oh well Wendy’s you have lost another since your doors first opened customer. If you even care. We certainly won’t be back.

I’m a 73 year old senior. I have been going to the same Wendy’s in Romeoville, Il., for quit a few years. Always order the 99cent Jr. cheese burgers with lettuce and tomato slice added.
I was told years ago, that if you want lettuce and tomato added to each burger, just ask to have them added, because I was told that every customer does not want lettuce and tomato on their burger, and that there is no extra charge for adding them on to the burgers.
A new girl took my order for the burgers and was charging me extra money for the lettuce and tomato slice per burger.
I tried to question when the extra charge for the lettuce and tomato slice per burger when into effect.
She, arrogantly said to me ” that the extra charge for the lettuce and tomato slice per burger, was always added to the price per burger.”
I tried to explain to her that, I never in the years that i ordered burgers did I pay an extra charge for lettuce and tomato slice being added to my burger orders
She was very arrogant and rude, would not let me talk, kept on trying to talk over me. She said that,” Her night Manager, he told her that there was always an extra charge for the 99cent Jr. cheese burgers. And also that all the store shift supervisors and managers were wrong”.
Has there always been an extra charge for lettuce and tomato slice per burger?. I don’t mind paying extra, as long I am told so, and I then can decide if I want to pay for the extra charge.
That arrogant person of whom took my order, in my opinion should not be dealing with customers until she learns how to deal with customers with out being arrogant and rude to them, allowing them to speak and ask questions, without being a ( know-it-all / everyone else is wrong).

I took her there tonight for something to eat and some employees started making comments that they can’t believe we had the nerve to eat there and while at work they’re posting rude comments on Facebook. Just because she don’t work there anymore doesn’t mean she shouldn’t be treated like any other customer… I asked an employee for the corporate number and he came back to me and said the manager refused to give it to me ..I Will not be eating there again. I have lived here 57 years and have never seen a restaurant run as bad as that one …most of the employees are rude and your manager s. Are not in control of thing’s there…..I Would NOT recommend.

My husband and I got double cheese combos from Wendy’s in Jeannette, pa and now we are both throwing up and diarrhea at the same time. I called my doctor and he said it is definitely food poisoning. I called Wendy’s and a manager named dave is who I spoke to. I told him my problems and I want my money back and he said no. He also said “that’s the chance you take eating fast food!” Really? Why in the hell does he have a job there? I will take this further and I WILL call my attorney in the morning. There is no reason I should be treated like this by anyone, especially this man and to have him be so ignorant to me. I want action taken…..

It is a sad state of affairs when Wendy’s as a major contributor to a strong, recovering economy is finally brought to their knees because of a management team that is running amuck. A new store introduced to the Los Banos area of California should be under investigation; especially since the store isn’t five years old and the turnover ratio is staggering to say the least. I have enjoyed Wendy’s for many years but I fear that Wendy’s future is about to come to a close. If there is anyone out there who is genuinely concerned at this office it would behoove you to consider taking a close look at what is going on at this site.

I currently work for wendy’s and i am very disappointed. they would not let me have wednesday nights and sundays off at desired times for religious issues and i don’t think its right its discrimination and its against my human rights and they never gave me a schedule never told me what i was getting paid after i got hired or nothing. the manager told me that work is more important than church which offended me due to my religious beliefs.

I don’t know how many times I have seen management on Raden Dr, Land O Lakes, FL not care about their customers or employees. There’s a blonde manager who is the worst! I’ve had several problems with her alone, that has made me never want to return to this location. I’m only reporting to this website because management there has done nothing to fix this. She’s rude, yells at her employees right behind the registers, and I have seen so many new employees that I don’t see a few weeks later. What’s going on Wendy’s?!?!

I live in Chattanooga tn and Wendy’s on shallowford rd is absolutely horrible . Crew smoking in the lobby. Managers smoking in the office . Molded strawberries on the sink which a manager ask a staff to pick through them and put them on a salad. A razor was found in the trash in the prep area where food is made. A crew member preparing food with no gloves on at all. I find this to be disgusting and unprofessional . I’m thinking about contacting the local health department here. This is unacceptable especially when people are paying money for what they think is a good meal.

Call corporate (614) 764-3100 make them give you the money back .. The manager should pay from her own pocket.. That is not right that she called the towing company..I just can’t stand RUDE people if they don’t like their job do something else.. I also had a very bad experience with a Wendy’s restaurant.. Ugh!

There’s nothing like being served a half raw piece of chicken from the Wendy’s in imlay city, mi then when you go to call there to complain because your out of town and on the road you can’t go back, their phone continues to be busy like it’s of the hook for over half hour.

I loved the asiago chicken club, not anymore

I would like to start by saying thank you for your response, but in regards to the issue I had when at a Wendy’s location my question still has not been answered, nor does a free meal that is less than what I paid that day, fixing the issue at hand. I was told that Wendy’s stopped doing the refund for no receipt standard years ago and I know I have been there more recent than that and saw the stickers on the window stating that. I also think the level of customer service was completely unsatisfactory. To the point that I have not been back to Wendy’s at any location since and a offer for a free combo meal definitely does not persuade me. Thank you anyway, but as I stated to them at the store that day. I’m not looking for anything free, I just expect more from your establishment.

I went to Wendys at 12:25 AM & ordered a JR Bacon Cheeseburger with a 10 piece nuggets & a large fry. Once I arrived home to eat my food I bit into my cheeseburger & the middle or the pattie was pink (raw)! I reported it to Corporate & am waiting to hear back, safe to say I will not waist my money at another Wendy’s again!

while vacationing in pigeon forge tenn. we stopped into wendys to grab dinner aside the fact the place was so slow it took 20 minutes to get our food, as we were almost finished up my daughter started vomiting on the floor wheni looked she had gotten a bake potato and when she flipped the skin over it had not one but FIVE! bugs the size of my thumbnail on the potato! this in return started a chain reaction of myself throwing up as I walked it to the counter the girl at the register grabbed it quickly before I could take a picture and ask me if she would like another one! totally disgusted I walked out an didn’t say a word before I started to vomit again! I have no idea why anyone would think id want another potato from wendys ever much less ten minutes after getting one that was so disgusting!

Tonight I went through the drive thru as I usually do a few times each week as a regular customer. I have let things go in the past until now. I ordered kids meals for my children. After I had already paid and had waited about 15 minutes, I learned that they were out of chocolate milk, white milk and juice. I also ordered apples with their meals. They were also out of frostys AS USUAL EVERY time I go there. Once I got home, we had no apples at all. Just a bunch of cold fries. the chicken in the kids wraps were also cold and the chicken looked as if it had been recooked several times. Not to mention, we got no straws to drink our drinks even after we were obligated to get sodas which we don’t usually drink. This is nothing he first time we’ve had issues with this particular location. Last time we visited they were also out of milk, juice and frostys. I’m beginning to wonder if those items are going to be discontinued? Or has someone just forgot to order these items several weeks in a row? Like I said these simple problems have occurred with each of my visits in the past several weeks and has discouraged me from ever visiting Wendy’s again! I know things sometimes get missed and people make mistakes, but not the same mistakes over and over! My personal opinion, I don’t believe a place that offers optional healthy items for children should ever run out of those items. I was already upset that I had to wait over now 20 minutes for three kids meals. The last time Ivisited here they were out of shredded cheese,SHREDDED CHEESE? REALLY? and instead they cut up slice cheese to put in the kids wraps? Not professional at all! The employees are always super nice, don’t get me wrong. However, I believe all these mistakes fall directly into managements hands, for ultimately they are the ones responsible for making sure all operations are ran in order. I would appreciate if someone could respond to my concerns I have addressed? I have visited this particular location two to three times per week for the past couple of years and honestly, since the remodeling of the building, the only thing that has impressed me is the building is quite nice but my experiences here lately have been way below sub-par.

I had just been fired from the Wendy’s of Durand Mchigan. I was very mistreated. I got fired ony 90 days. My 90 days was up the exact day I got fired. Here is a list of how your company managers treated me.
1. Almost all managers were very rude and disrespectful. I had gotten 3 write ups in no time at all. Management was very happy to give me. Two is particular were even worse. One wrote me up because as she puts it “talking back to management and was bitching about her. Walked away from another employee offering help with dishes” that is not the case in the slightest. I was already off the clock when this manager had said she “talk” to me. It wasnt talking she had completely disrespected me and yelled at me off the clock. I had gotten another write up that was detailed to many customer complaints. The problem with this was I got both write up at the same time and not even an hour after the second one had accured. Was talk to once and I received both write up at the same time which were givin to me by a whole different manager. Both managers who gave me the two write ups were having me try to take orders at the back cash register window when I had not been trained to do so until weeks after the occurrences. When I told the head general manager about these issues she told me that they were being dismissed because they were not properly handled. But I was lied to and the two write ups stayed. And then the third write up and final write up was givin to me before I had clocked in on 7/13/2015. This write up stated that I had not been doing my duties at all over this prior weekend and that I was taking to much time cutting and doing bacon and that I should not of been doing so. I was accused of not properly sweeping or mopping the floor when my schedualed time has already being over. I was told I was suppose to have something cleaned when I was never told to have cleaned before. Example : Satursday 7/11/2015 I left after 10:00pm. There had been nothing left for me to complete. At midnight on Sunday 7/12/2015 a fellow coworker was sent home sick as I was told hours later before 4:00pm that day, the general manager and an assistant manager had to come in to fill in. When they arrived at Midnight on Sunday I was told they had to clean backroom floors and do everything that I was suppose to have completed before I left. As stated before all my work had been completed and the night manager at the time okayed it and sent me home.
2. The minors at the store when on the clock were always on their cellular devices and not doing the job assigned to them. A few in particular were eating product in the middle of drive thru while I not having trained in taking orders was being told and depanded to take orders and give out change.
3. I was not able to do my back register duties properly because managment was not allowing me the time to do so. Example: I was told not to cut the bacon for the bacon pans all the way through. Every time I had been schedualed for a shift of 4pm until 10pm I had not been able to do any other duties except collect payment and give change for 4 to 5 hours of the shift because of high custumor activity. No other duties assigned were not able to completed by me because of high customer activity.
4. I was never trained properly. Every thing that I was suppose do was not explained for me to understand. I was giving my duties and expected to fofill them without any instruction on how to do them properly. Example: as stated before I was not trained to take orders at cash drive thru Window until recent and was still working on improving the skill because I was only given the register and there was no one there to correcting me if I had made a mistake.
5. I was not able to take breaks that were needed such as restroom when needed. Because of high customer activity and having no one to cover my station as I use the restroom I was forced to stay where I was.
6. My shifts where to short to have breaks or I called off multiple times in one week when scedualed. A minor who had been hired the same day I had was getting her 29 hours a week and then some extra hours. I barely made 10 hours a week, if I was lucky 20.
7. I had never been trained on anything except one task for two months if employement. I was doing fries and nugget station and nothing more. I was getting supplies for front line when it was not assigned to me.

This list is of mistreatment is why I am complaining as an ex-employee and will be telling future applicants not to apply for this company.

You are absolutely right Wendy’s don’t treat their employees right. My daughter works there, she’s straight A student has never gotten in trouble at school or home she’s the perfect kid but when she came home crying wanting to give her 2 weeks notice I knew something wasn’t right. The manager was yelling in her ear as well as talking about employees to other employees About their weight and race which is totally unacceptable as a manager I hope and pray that something will be done or its go be a big mess because people are not playing when it comes to their child being mistreated on the job when all their trying to do is make it besides all that work they do for minimum wage is just embarrassing.

I just had the most disgusting experience at your Palm Coast Parkway, Palm Coast, FL store. I tried to call them direct, no answer. I tried to call your customer service number listed on your website, none of the prompts work. I tried to email corporate – you need the store number, guess what MY receipt doesn’t have a store number, HOW convenient. I highly doubt this will get to anyone and I WANT compensation for that non-edible wet cold soggy crap that was served as food tonight. I wonder how long it will take for someone to correct this? I wonder if this will even work?

Wendy’s in Hays KS. How disgusting filthy dirty. The Womens sink hasn’t worked in how long? Thought you washed your hands, guess not there. The breakfast was worse, a country biscuit coated in day old bacon and egg grease. Yummy couldn’t even pick it up. Coffee ordered and paid for, too much trouble for someone to pour it! On fairness they did offer to give it to my wife as we walked out the door. Sad, illegal and nasty!

This is about your store in Melbourne, FL (Babcock st). You might want to check out that store because you have a thief among it. The GM gets drunk on the clock and touches female minors. I know this because my sister used to work at this location. The DM that over looks this area does NOTHING to fix the issue NOTHING and that’s a problem! I’m pretty sure MR. DAVE THOMAS would not be to pleased to hear about how his hard earned business allowed slander of his company. Let’s fix this because this is NOT WENDYS WAY!!!!

A friend works at Wendy’s in Washington State. (if you want his info contact me privately) He’s been employed for 6 weeks and hasn’t been paid yet. …not one penny and he still shows up and clocks in..HE has Character.

Here are the actions he’s allowed to take against your company for this violation: (he’s asked his employer (your franchisee) many times with no answer, pay or solution ($10 in quarters is not a solution it’s an insult).

1. My employer hasn’t given me a paycheck for the hours I have worked. What should I do?
Once you learn that you will not receive a paycheck on your usual payday, it is important to keep a record of your hours worked during the relevant pay period, and any additional expenses that you suffer due to receiving your paycheck late. HE HAS AND HE SHOULD RECEIVE THE INTEREST THAT THESE FRANCHISEE”S ARE KEEPING FOR THEMSELVES…ARE THEY FILING BANKRUPTCY? ARE THEY BEHIND ON THEIR FRANCHISE FEES? WHY WOULD YOU ALLOW A FRANCHISEE TO KEEP THEIR FRANCHISE WITH THIS ACTION?

You may first want to ask your employer for an explanation, to determine whether the failure to receive a paycheck was due to a processing error or bank mistake, rather than because the employer does not intend to pay you for the hours that you worked. In this situation, the employer and/or bank may voluntarily agree to cover any additional charges you incurred as a result of this mistake. This will also ensure that you are not at fault for failing to submit records for the hours that you worked. HE”S SUBMITTED EVERYTHING RIGHT AND HE STILL COMES TO WORK AND DOES HIS JOB> PAY HIM

Many states have laws which require employers to pay employees for all hours worked, and which require employers to pay employees at regular intervals, such as biweekly or semimonthly. These laws may impose penalties on employers who do not comply with the law, and may even provide for criminal prosecution. In states that have their own wage and hour laws (or if you are not covered by the federal law, you should contact the agency in your state which handles wage and hour/labor standards violations, listed on our site’s state government agencies page. 3 PAY PERIODS HAVE PASSED>>STILL NO PAY ON HIS CARD

Federal law, which requires that you be paid at least minimum wage for your hours worked, is enforced by the Wage-Hour Division of the U.S. Department of Labor.

Getting paid

How often must workers be paid?

Businesses must pay workers on regular established paydays at least once a month.
IT”S BEEN OVER 6 WEEKS EVERYONE ELSE HAS BEEN PAID BI-WEEKLY EXCEPT HIM. CLEARLY THIS FRANCHISE IS BREAKING MANY US LAWS AND HIS FRANCHISE AGREEMENT. THE CORPORATE OFFICE ALSO COULD BE LIABLE FOR HIS REFUSAL TO FOLLOW LABOR LAW. HE WILL PURSUE ALL AVENUES.

Can workers file complaints if they are not paid or do not get other workplace rights?

Workers can file a wage complaint if a business does not pay them.
Workers can also file a complaint if the business denies other workplace rights that are regulated by the Department of Labor & Industries (L&I), such as meal and rest breaks, overtime, family care, etc.

Workers can go here to download a Worker Rights Complaint form (F700-148-000) or they can go to their nearest L&I office to get one. Either way, they should mail the completed form or deliver it in person to the nearest L&I office. Find out more about how to file a worker rights complaint here. HE”S DOING THIS TODAY

Can a business pay their employees using a debit card or prepaid payroll card?

Yes, but if there are fees for using the cards, the employer must provide an alternative that allows employees to access their wages without any fees or costs associated with the payroll transaction….HE HAS A CARD AND HAS NEVER BEEN PAID FOR OVER 6 WEEKS. THE MANAGER TODAY TRIED TO HAND HIM $10 IN QUARTERS FOR HIS PAYCHECK. THAT IS DISGUSTING.

So, this incident occurred about 3 weeks ago but I have been really sick and didn’t know how to complain about it until now. I AM TRAUMATIZED!! Seriously!
LOCATION: Wendy’s on 16055 Johnston Rd. Charlotte, NC 28277 (it’s actually a really nice area!)
So I was really sick and starving on my way home from picking up some medicine. I stopped at this Wendy’s and ordered a plain jr bacon cheese burger. When I got it I took a bite and felt something really hard in my mouth. I assumed it was a really hard peice of bacon. I spit it out and what I saw has traumatized me for life… I was chewing on a black chicken nail/claw. It was a curled, kind of sharp claw… I was so nauseous and in disbelief.
I wish I would’ve taken a picture or went back to tell that store what I found but I was really sick and needed to pass out.
Since this incident I have told everyone I know to never go to Wendy’s again and I tell them my story. This is disgusting and I will never eat at another Wendy’s again and neither will a lot of my friends and family.
Nothing I ordered was chicken either. It looked as if an employee just out the claw on top of the bacon on my sandwich…
Wendy’s has really gone off the deep end. I’m disgusted by the company.

I was vacationing in Kissimmee FL and went to Wendy’s store #8161 (6141 Irlo Bronson Hwy Kissimmee FL) on Thursday June 25, 2015 about 4 ish. I ordered from who appear to be a male manager the chicken asiago meal with a side salad medium strawberry lemonade and two 6 piece nuggets for a total of $12.71. I was checking my account that Friday and noticed that I had pending $12.71 three times. I called and spoke with a manager and she said they sometimes do that because its a tourist area but it will only charge once. When I got home to SC and checked my account I was charged $12.71 three times. I called and the young lady took my name and number and said someone would call me. I called today and was given an email address of store8161@wendys.com to send a picture of the three charges but it bounced back undeliverable. I’m not a rich person. I work very hard to allow my daughter to have a vacation. I work paycheck to paycheck and to have this happen Thank God I checked because I could have overdrawn my account. Since the email didn’t go thru I have to resolution until I call tomorrow. Preying on tourist is NOT good business and to keep passing me over to person to person has made me not trust Wendy’s. I’m telling everyone I know who go to Kissimmee Fl 6141Irlo Bronson Hwy to use cash only!!!

This evening, I visited a Wendy’s, that I normally go to. I have made at least three complaints to this particular Wendy’s. I am making a formal complaint to Wendy’s Corporate Headquarters. I expect a response. Also, understand the employees were very polite. I don’t make this complaint, because of their attitudes. But, solely for health purposes and life. I ordered a cup of of water and one Junior Bacon Cheeseburger. I sat down to eat my burger and about 20 minutes into eating my burger, I looked at it and noticed the meat was completely raw inside. The outside was cooked. I had already eaten half the burger. And was horrified, that I had consumed the raw meat. I informed the Manger and he apologized. He was very concerned. He said he’d be certain to speak to the crew. I also, informed him that the people cooking need to pay more attention to cooking food to the correct temperature. I do not want to get sick and die from this meat. I have noticed that many teenagers are employed with Wendy’s, and it seems that they are not very concerned about the customers health, as they prepare food. I am seriously concerned and I want Corporate to take action and make sure all Wendy’s begin to serve well cooked fresh foods. If I get sick from this, and have not heard from Corporate, I will contact other agencies.

Last Tuesday me, my mom and the girls stopped at Wendy’s in Columbus IN. Lola had to potty so while my mom ordered I took her to the bathroom. If I didn’t have a 3 year old needing to potty I would have just left. The bathroom was disgusting! And there was something on the floor that although I didn’t get to close to inspect, looked like a dead mouse. I laid a ton of tp on the toilet and had her go, I’ll be honest I didn’t mess with washing hands we just got the heck out of there. I got out the wipes and hand sanitizer out of my purse because I felt this was the cleanest option. Yes it was THAT bad! My mom was ordering and asked if I wanted anything to which I mumbled to get the heck out of here. She ordered a water and 2 jr frostys for the girls. She was given and charged for water and a large soda. For the frostys she was charged 1 jr and 1 sm even though they gave her two jrs. She gives me the soda cup and I make my way across the trashed floor of the lobby to get a coke. I am 100% sure I pushed regular coke on the machine, I’m not sure what the hell I got though because it was so disgusting I couldn’t even take a second drink to try and figure it out. When we found the cleanest table, we still had to wipe it off with the wipes from my purse. I’m not one to complain but there wasn’t one good thing I could say positive about this experience. The whole 15 minutes there I was disgusted so I filled out their whole survey thing explaining everything in detail, today almost a week later I get this email:

Stacy,
Thank you for your input, it is greatly appreciated and I will share with my managers and employees to improve upon.

I am very upset with the way my 16 year old son was treated at a Wendy’s today. A little background…He had applied online to Wendys and was called in for an interview at 1201 W Patrick St Frederick, MD. I drove him Wends. at 5pm, and he told me that he went in and was told by someone at the counter that the manager said she was busy and to come back on Thursday at 3pm. My husband drove him and he had an interview with a lady there, which went well. She told my son to come back today, Saturday at 3pm for a follow up interview. He showed up at 2:50 and a manager, a man, told my son that he’d been interviewing at the wrong Wendys. So 2 min after my son went in for the interview he came out very embarrassed, because he was told that he had made the mistake. This was ridiculous. Even if he had initially interviewed at the wrong Wendys the lady he interviewed with asked him to come back. What’s wrong here?

First, I want to tell you I love your Strawberry Fields Chicken salad. Normally.

However, I went through your drive through today at the Wendy’s on Woodlands, Expressway, The Woodlands, Texas and picked up a Strawberry Fields Chicken salad, and if I had never had one before I would never buy one again.

The chicken was cold, hard, and tasted funny, like it had been sitting out for several days. I had to take all the chicken off and throw it away. There was no bacon on the salad. And the cheese (which is normally blue cheese bits) tasted more like a dry bland cottage cheese. The strawberries were fine, and the lettuce was crisp, but having unedible chicken, no bacon and bland, questionable cheese ruined it for me.

Please check on this location and/or the people that are running it. I want you and all your locations to succeed, and I don’t want to give up on Wendy’s as a place to go get lunch or dinner.

Why stay open til 1 pm if your employees cant even do their job right at midnight?

Visited your location at Bonney Lake, wa tonight. Not only did they give us the wrong burger, but also no straw or napkins. Seems like a small thing until you try to drink your soda.

Common sense when serving food dictates including required utinsels.

Fail!

Went to leave a complaint on your website and that sucks too! Would’t let me past enter your city.

Boo! Get it together Wendy!

I dined at the shelbyville Riley hwy location last night when a Wendy’s employee was in unifom dining with his family in the dining room as well. His guy took a phone call and was cussing yeti loudly and saying the f word so may times. I saw the only two other people in there keep looking at him and one left, I had a 10 year old and this guy had his own toddler. Upon calling and talkin to Jonathan the manager I was told that the foul mouth diner was a manager as well. I hope corporate can do something I believe all managers are on the same level

Just went the Wendy’s in Davenport, Iowa and the girl that took the order acted like she didn’t even know what was on the menu or even what type of food the establishment served. Then ms.almanique did not greet us and had the food bags in her nasty hands and was accepting money with the same nasty hands and the spicy chicken nuggets were spilled all over the inside of the bag. The customer service failed severly, when customers come to the restaurant they are supposed to feel welcomed, not as though we are inconviencing you. So next time a customer comes through drive try smiling and greeting it goes a long way, if you can’t even do that maybe this is not the job for you.

Just got back from Wendy’s in the pilot gas in mayston, Wisconsin. What a sad disappointment. The burgers were dry, gray and salty. The baked potato was discolored from being warmed too long. Giving it the benefit of the doubt I opened my faux butter packet only to find it had separated, curdled and melted. Quickly closed that up and tried to put the sour creme on but couldn’t get passed the dried out old chives and horrible color of the potato flesh so I discarded it. Ate about half the burger before I decided not to continue to endure the horrible flavor. Between my meal and my husband’s our bill was $20.01and calling it mediocre would be flattery.

I visited this location 3610 Buechel Bypass, Louisville, KY 40218 as much as 3 to 4 times a week for lunch. I say about 4 or 5 months ago they got a new manager, that needs to go away immediately!!! Since she has been there I have written to there higher-ups several times about how she treats her employees other managers and most importantly me and other customers!!! But nothing is done all they try to do is just send me and my other Co workers coupons!!! She is very RUDE and NASTY, I was just wondering what ever happen to customer service!!! I used to love going there cause its very convenient and the people treated you like you was FAMILY!!! I guess from now on the money I have save going there me and my Co workers will be dinning elsewhere until the situation is taking care of and I really feel sorry that place since it is called WENDY’S!!! Thanks again haircutbob.

I have had several issues with my order at this Wendy’s: 16056 hwy 280 Chelsea , Al 35043

My most recent issue was at 10:30 this evening. No tea available. They close at 12am, 1.5 hours before closing and no tea. Okay, I was able to improvise. Waited 15 min in line. Get my order, get home its absurd how uncooked my chicken sandwich is. Not only that, no tomato on my sandwich and soggy lettuce. My fry was not biggie as requested and paid for. I called this location to notify them of the issue with my order. I called 4 times, finally at 10:58 PM on the 4th try someone answered. She did state that they did run out of tomatoes as well as sweet tea this evening. Unbelievable. …. this is about my third time dealing with a jacked up order…..

Wendy’s Old Fashioned Hamburgers have been renamed Sandwiches. Went to a new Wendy’s in Greenbelt in Manila and surprised Wendy’s no longer serve Burgers!!
Congratulations to your marketing GENIUS who decided to rename Burgers as Sandwiches. My first thought was what an absolute dipstick brainless ningkimpooop. However I accept he or she went to University and graduated with an MBA so I know they are smarter than me who never went to university with no education started working age 12 with nothing and now have a small chain of Sandwich Bars 180 stores to be exact.
So there is no confusion will Wendy’s please pay to rename my 180 Sandwich Bars.
I think I will call them Gas Stations or Gymnasiums unless your marketing geniuses can suggest another name for sandwiches now that burgers are no longer burgers and are sandwiches. If you decide to ever rename Wendy’s can I suggest a more appropriate name like Mayweathers cause thats a winning name !

As a former employee of the Ellsworth Maine wendys store, I was disgusted with the way food is processed, I ran the grill cooking the burgers and I am 41 years old so I know what spoiled meat smells like, I have had several different occasions when I have noticed the dates on the boxes of meat have expired and was brought to managers attention name travis robertson and was told to cook it, even though the smell of it was rank and foul and watched them serve this to customers, I mean the smell was 1 thing raw was even nastier cooking and they served this to customers, This is fact I worked here for 3 years they are also very very rude and nasty to there employees. I will never eat there, not after what I have seen, nor would I ever go back to work there, or refer any one to work there. MANAGERS NAMES WHO SHOULD BE RETRAINED ON HOW TO TREAT EMPLOYEES, Travis Robertson Denise Malison They are very rude to employees constantly putting employees down in front of them and behind there backs calling them stupid, numb, or asking them if they have any brains. This is no way to treat your employees and it should be looked into all issues that I have brought up and I am not the only one who will say this I am sure there are many who agree!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dave Thomas would roll over in his grave if he knew how bad his creation has fallen, rude managers, long waiting times for food, expired food being served to customers, adult managers flirting with teen workers who are still in school. Wendys should be proud of this! Think maybe they need to train management and franchise owners to be more aware on how to treat employees and customers alot better than what I have seen. WENDYS NEEDS TO STRAIGHTEN THESE PROBLEMS OUT PERIOD

Went to Wendy’s in Norwood, Oh 45212 Surrey Square. I got everything from value menu which is .99 cents. Got 4 cheeseburgers, 2 frostys and fries. That is 7 items. Total $6.93 +.48=$7.41. I gave a $10.00 bill. Change should be $2.59. I got back $2.00 even. I got shorted .59 . I didn’t want to wait telling her I didn’t get the correct change, because I already waited over 20 minutes. I asked her if receipt was in my bag. She looked at I assume was cash register and said yes. I came home to get receipt out of bag and surprise it wasn’t there. I then tried to call to no avail. Surprise no answer. If she is doing this to everyone she has a nice side business going on. You might say it’s only .59 but I’m on disability. Every penny counts. I just started going back to your establishment and now this happens again. Boy that lady really has the nerve to to this. I would like a credit from you. I will take the time next time she tries to steal my money again. Hop you investigate this matter and dtore. I won’t got back until I here from you. Sherry Kathman. Thank you.

I have been at Wendys for almost a year now and enjoy working there, or I should say
used to enjoy working there. I understand all to well about having to keep payroll down
by sending employees home. This is what is upsetting me the most, in the past 3 wks
the store failed to open on time, which means those of us that did and had to wait
outside will not be paid for those three hours we waited… if you add up all the times
we have waited outside it comes to about full days work, and they still insist on
cutting hours…………..Thank you for letting me vent on your website

Store #05108534 in Seminole Fla . I visited this store on 4/9/15 at about 8PM , The food was good ,but thats not why I’m commenting . Theresa was behind the counter , there was an old couple with 3 G-Kids (brats) , She handled a situation that would have been near impossible for me to handle , then thanked me for my patience . She needs to be Sainted for the way she handled herself . I sat down to eat and the Brats were Raisin’ Cane , she then went to the Old folks table and asked them if she could do any thing to make their experience more enjoyable , I think they understood that their G-kids needed some disiplin’n …..She Was Great .

I seeked employment at wendys because I thought id feel at home and that itd be like a family and comfortable where also I had gone many times griwing up with my family and enjoyed meals there. Only working four days, three out of the four days I got cut and sent home hours before scheduled shift end because of “over production” and needing to cut employees so they can maintain profit. Being on the verge of homelessness I had stuck in those days best I could with the minimum wage and little training also partly chaotically due to the cut scheduled times. Also in employee handbook stated I could wear a necklace and at interview and all of four days I was there I wore the same necklace, a rainbow pride necklace that means a lot to me. The manager who hired me said I couldnt wear it anymore , said it was “unprofessional.” Also an incident happened with a coworker that I told her about a few days of being home ridden from suicidal ideations from stress in general life but also the incident that a coworker lasged out on me in a rage in front of other coworkers and even customers. One of which she said I shouldnt be working there, her rageful, hateful remarks were aggressed by not being satisfied of my work, which I find inconvenient since I had no way to get proper training from not just daily being cut during what was suppose to be learning the company, but also lack of being taught necessary skills to be in ease of handling efficient work processes that are idealy learned by training and time taken to learn adjust into the company which I wasnt given. Today I called and talked to that manager who hired me and decided I should try and confide in her and see if it could be fixed and after telling her about my stresses and the incident with the coworker she told me that the girl had apologized and that she knew her outside of work beforehand. I told her I hadnt been in because of the incident and the cut in hours and about the stress and depression and suicidal ideations that I previously had. She showed no empathy for one of her employees causing a panic attack in front of numerous people. I am also on ssi disability and the coworker and manager didnt see me fit to work there and the manager said she didnt think id make it there and that I was always in their way. The whole experience is ptsd I will never forget and for having wanting to build my growth with this company in also honor of my decesed grandmother who it was out tradition to eat at wendys when I was growing up, I am very sickened by the pain I now have to carry of disappointment in something I thought woukd be of comfort and what I thought would be a good fulfilling experience.

I have a receipt, there is no 8 digit store code, I tried to leave a remark that my burgers and bun had to have been microwaved as they tasted stale and the buns were soggy and wrinkled. When I called the 1-888 I could leave no comment as I had no I digit store number. Email me and I will email a picture of my receipt. This is ridiculous that I have a receipt but can leave no remarks, the Wendy’s in ND is way more than 1.5 times the cost of any Wendy’s in Florida, yet has less than half the quality. The person at the window was fine but the quality of food has been way below par for Wendy’s. I worked at a Kewpee in Lima, OH, where Dave Thomas learned their trade to open his first Wendy’s in Columbus, OH. I’m not a fucking idiot and know quality fast food when I get it. And if this is what I can expect from this Wendy’s I might as well go to burger king or mcdonald’s.

Dear Wendy’s
I am currently employed at one of your locations 517 E Martin town Rd North Augusta S.C.I am a dedicated employee that comes to work do my work. Professionally groom polite and respectful.I’ve received several compliment on my performance by many of your customers.Recently it seem my manager has a personal issue with me
Today I was sent home early because I chose to speak with her about the situation. Prior to that the following week I had asked for a break to take my medicine because I have migraines got no response.I was sent home.My problem is that you can’t have someone take in consideration that something need to be done.The Foundation I knew was a man called Dave whom had a daughter name Wendy and he cared about his employees and customers. Those day are long gone.I only wonder how Mr Dave would feel knowing this Franchise he built has deteriorated tremendously. Loosing employees because you choose to keep managers that treat human being like they are less than them speaks volume.A minute out of your day would be nice if only for you to see theses companies that are DBA Wendy’s. Sometimes its about how you treat your employees that produce growth.maybe they should do an episode of that show at my restaurant and see how things are done.You would disaffiliate yourself with this one.praying for change or an interview with our local news channel
Thanks have a blessed day.

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.

On 6-23/15, we went to Wendy’s on Sugarloaf, (near Cedar Hill Elementary School) in Lawrenceville, GA.

I nearly had a terrible fall there due to a sectional area w/rug where the metal moldings on the the edge are to keep rug in place. However, these metal moldings are in disrepair. I nearly had a horrific tumble as I tripped on the molding’s edge sticking up. I am presently recovering from a radial bone fracture on my left arm. Just imagine, how serious the fall in Wendy’s could have resulted due to the disrepair.

I hope Corporate Office takes my comments very SERIOUS. The Franchise Owner needs to repair all the moldings, as they all are in disrepair. A given liability for Wendy’s Corporation.

I gave that young lady my number so if anyone said anything different .. I was one of 4 customers that was coming in as the situation was taking place , that young lady was afraid, after seeing this lady at Walmart nd for her to tell me she was fired behind it is wrong!!.. I hear so much about that place it make me sick.. Managers being rude to customers, managers drink with under age kids on the job, drugs being sold on the job, but yet you all find a poor reason to let this lady go. My family nd I come in there 3 or more times a week ,and I never seen that young do anything, but her job shame on you all!!!!

This store is loosing business because of the management team also Mr.Bernard has a nasty disposition as well this store is in Columbus,Ms. Hwy.45 north.

I may just be a worker and tho I’m part time that does not give them the right to treat me less. I just want to simple assistance and that seems not possible. I will be quitting I just want my last check, I want nothing else from this company.This is from Urbana, Illinois, I’ve been nothing but patient and I’m tired of the disrespect

Do you really wonder why these stores are going downhill?

Hi my name is Jabree Whitaker I am currently employed at the Wendys at 2815 Dekalb Pike in East Norritown ,Pa
Today on 1/15/2015 I was told to leave because I told them I could not clean the floor because my jobs was to take orders in drive thru and make sure everything was done correctly. The manager than asked me to leave I told him I’m not supposed to leave til 10 pm when my shift is over ,so then he goes to the back and call the police for no reason . I haven’t done anything wrong or said anything but that’s not my job ,also their was nobody else to put in drive thru because everyone had left and it was only 5 people and they already was doing their parts. I have been working here since 4-12-2014 and never had to go through anything like this. I respect everyone that work from managers to coworkers. I do my job and more ,I’m always available we they need help. So I would just let to talk to someone about this cause I’m not going to to be dealing with while working here. Also this manager was a new manager from a Mcdonald he just got off from training His name is James don’t know his last name but here is the store number 610-239-1027 and you can reach me at 215-519-3252 thank you

I went to Wendy’s in Ashland, Virginia several weeks ago and ordered a Chicken with Ranch sandwich for $1.29. I was told that was a seasonal special and I couldn’t get one at the price. Tonight January 15 2015 at 9:46 on channel 299 I saw the same ad again. What am I supposed to think about what I was told??? Do you lie on TV or at the store?? It has to be one or the other!! Not nice!!! Apparently McDonald’s needs more of my business!!

Emil:

Have you ever went into a wendys that was not pre-prepaired for your visit? I went to a wendys here in Phx AZ on Camelback Store #000000610. I ordered a lg chili and picked up at the drive thru window, guess what… when I went back to work to eat it, I openeded and found no chili, just red beans and tomatoes bits and juice. Sadly dis-appointed but not intirely, here is the reason. When I first ate a burger in 1978 at wendys…wow it was hot juicy made to order and tasted as good as I could cook it. Now, your burgers are flat not nasty, not juicy, not made to order and the lettece, tomatoes and onion, well, old stale non color, bugrers kept in a warmer pan, dark without taste.. and no one speaks english and no one ones gives a crap. i tell my friends about it and most agree tey quit eating at wendys as well.

Thats why I dont visit very often, when I do its never a hamburger. The quality has went so far down I dont care to continue with it. I can get a juicy hot burger at Sonic!

My husband and I were shopping and decided to grab a bite to eat at the Wendy’s in Leominster, MA.
We received our food an my burger was raw. We took I it back and the made a new one. It was better, but it was cold.
The air quality was terrible! Smelled like a greasy spoon restaurant! Made my eyes water. To top it off my husband went to the restroom and had to turn around and come right back out. The toilet seats and the walls were covered in feces!
The whole experience was disgusting. We will never eat at Wendy’s again!

I went there this evening around 5:20 pm and bought a large chili for my daughter and we went through the drive thru we live 5-6 minutes away tops we get home she opens the chili to add the sauce&crackers and big as day there it laid on top a Damn cockroach that’s just sickening my daughter instantly threw up just from the sight of it I then returned back to Wendy’s and all the manager could say was I’m sorry I didn’t cook it but would u like more or a frosty to compensate u I then said No! Give me my money they are always loud,rude,and Ghetto as if there’s always a party going on there and there’s always homeless guys wandering inside&out asking for money…so would I ever return to a Wendy’s again…No! I took pictures and posted them everywhere so I have proof.!!!!

I’m a customer that never smelled what I smelt on 1/07/2015 at 8;30 pm. See I took my wife to order off the Wendy’s Menu in Houston at the location at the Love gas station at 210 Patton St. Houston TX 77009, but what we smelt that night made us very sick and we could not eat what we ordered. We left with our food to eat at my office but we still could not eat because the way it made us feel and where we could not get that odor off of our togo bags and the way our cloths smelt like and from the way the food smelled like. I called the next day and spoke to the GM of that store and he did not want to take ownership of that situation. His answer to me was that he did not have restrooms on his side of that building. He never took ownership of that problem so my next actions is to call the health department in our city to make a health complaint because he doesn’t think he has a problem in his store. I am not making a threat to anyone, but if he doesn’t care about the way his store is by not taking action to see what was wrong in whatever his costumers made claims too in what was wrong in his store. See he does not care about the quality of his food and the way his store is and the way his way of cooking of the food is cooked if there is a problem with the food that crosses his counters when his costumers order their food and where there might be some kind of contamination with that odor that was coming from his dinning room where it smelled like human urine. I need someone to email me about that because the way that GM acted like it made me feel that he did not care and his management capabilities need some work because he doesn’t care what his costumers needs to even look at his costumers safety when there is a problem in his store. I believe someone needs to look into this because I do care about my health and everyone should take note of this MG and the way he acted and the actions he did not act on. See I am going to call the health department and I will be heard because I am a person that knows a lot of people in the city and it will be investigated and there will be fines given if they do find that my allegations are there to be in violation of the city ordnance.

My daughter is a recent former employee of Wendy’s in Mansfield Ohio . The Store is located on Lexington ave. This morning at about 9:45 am she went in to pick up her final check, and was told by management that she didn’t have one, after working 32 hours. The manager didn’t enter her in to payroll liked she worked those 32 hrs for free. This is absolutely unacceptable, for whatever reason she isn’t working there anymore does not mean that she should be treated like this . I’m pissed off for her. You guys just a valuable customer.

Wendys Mt Washington Cincinnati ohio 45245. My stepson works there. When he dropped out of school at 17 I called wendys and spoke to a manager (summer) and explained that he should not be able to work there now that he dropped out. Manager didn’t care about any of that. Don’t care about out kids education, only getting the burgers out. They should be held accountable.

Toni December 18, 2014 at 5:27 pm

Him dropping out has nothing to do with wendys. As long as he’s not going for management it don’t matter if he has a diploma or not. That’s not wendys job to be a parent and talk to your kids about education. If you dnt think ur stepson should work cuz he dropped out then be a parent and make him quit and put him back in.

I had been going into two different Wendy’s here in Farmington, NM 4 and 5 times a week since May as I had someone in the Hospital and then the Nursing Home. I was going by getting my food and would show them my previous receipt and ask for my $2.00 discount as well as my senior discount and had no problem doing this during that time. I was also picking up Happy meals to take to the elderly person at the Nursing Home. We’ll the beginning of November one of the members of Management told me they were only honoring the $2.00 off once a month! I was also told that for the senior discount that I would be given a free drink,but this is a child’s size drink. The manager told me that this was coming from corporate headquarters. I then asked him was he keeping a ledger of who and when the last discount was used. And also told him that it was not printed so on the back of the receipt. I Most usually order the Medium combo of the Son of Bacon after but instead of getting a regular size drink they gave me the small and still charged me full price. I I told the manager that I would not be back and he replied that was fine with him. And so I have not been back at all and our one church group of 15 that was going in every week has also stopped!

So it turns out all of our Wendy’s in Colorado Springs no longer gives military discount. REALLY????? Come on people. What the heck?? It is the least you can do by offering it. It needs to come back! So what if you’re losing out in profits. Do you realize what the military does for you?????

Visited our local Wendy’s today. Greeted by a wonderful personality, Natasha who took our order. The food was outstanding and so was the service. The place was spotless. Carlos, the Manager, is doing a great job. Our local Wendy’s is far from our downtown and is quite a treck to get to and we have to pass several other fast food stores before getting there. I will start making the “treck” out there for the service, cleanliness, and the food. Thanks,

I went through the drive-thru, ordered 2 sandwiches and a drink and was given a total. When I pulled up to the window, I handed the attendant my debit card for payment. My payment was taken and my card was handed back to me and I requested my receipt. I was told the machine wasn’t working right. I asked again for my receipt. I was asked to pull up to the next window. I was given my drink and food and thanked. I replied I was still waiting for my receipt. Finally a manager came to the window, gave me a few dollars back with the explanation that I was charged for 3 sandwiches instead of just 2 and given a receipt which does not add up to what was charged to my debit card. The ticket number for the receipt I was given reads as follows: Ticket #02-9484.

At the very least, this portrays dishonest management practices. If I had not insisted on getting my receipt, I would not have realized that I was overcharged. If the store management knew from the get go that I was overcharged, then the proper way to handle the transaction would have been to issue a credit to my debit card and then re-ring the order and place the correct charge onto my debit. When the manager told me what had happened, I advised her that “this is not cool.” I will not be back to this particular Wendy’s on Peoples St., Johnson City, TN, ever.

Hi my name is Brett Connor,
I was just in your Kaysville Wendys, and I was very disturbed!!! A lot of people were in the store and there was a couple that were talking to a manager. One specific employee seemed excited and I was very happy to see her approach at the store. (Working fast food sucks) She had yelled another employees name which I do have to say was loud but you could tell she was excited. The manager Stephanie disturbed me!! She snapped her fingers at her employee like she was a DOG!!! And then told her to get out of her store. I’m sorry but that just seemed way too dramatic and very disrespectful! I do not think I will EVER come back to this store because of that managers behavior!!!! I will just stick to my ARBY’s and BURGER KING!!!! Thank you!!

WENDYS IN MONCKS CORNER SC. The managers are rude to the workers. I quit because some of the workers been talking about me and I told the manager and they done nothing about it. I don’t feel safe because they talk about me all the time. The handbook doesn’t says to be rude, only polite! I told my mom and she told me to contact yall. I hate that place. I worked my butt off everyday for a year, no one given me a raise. Again I think that place needs new managers and owner. These workers works in groups and talk mean about other workers including me. I don’t feel right at that place anymore, even I been threatened by a worker saying he gonna fight me, trying to impress the girls. I just cant stand that place. They don’t sell fresh food, it be old and nasty. I used to be on grill and sandwiches. Manager Barry coxwell, Rhonda, Kim, are very rude managers. Not just to me to others. They makes fun of the workers. Dora and Toby are the best and the hardest worker at wendys in MONCKS CORNER SOUTH CAROLINA. They are the very best and treat workers like a sister or brother. That makes me feel good and comfortable. But thrs workers who works in a pack like chad, Tiffany rivers, and a few are very mean, that’s why I quit because of them and the managers I named. I am begging you to please take action. Thank you so much.

This wendys in moncks corner are very rude. Managers yelling at co workers, cursing at us. Sum of the co workers are working in packs and making fun of the other workers, and that’s how some of them quit. It’s very wrong, plus these managers know that, but they does nothing about it. The store owner Cena haas is a very busy women, the other manager Barry coxwell really does not work like a manager does, they all smoke and throw buds down outside the store. They sit down and makes co workers does it all every time. I called in late because I had to pick up my sister for my mom, because my mom is sick. They wrote me up, and said I should been fired for that. Please do something abt the wendys in moncks corner South Carolina. I feel very uncomfortable working their as long others.

I was an employee of Wendy’s on Smokey Park Hwy Asheville,NC (2 Spartan Ave Asheville,nc) I had recently found out that I was expecting and was extremely excited about my news when I got my proof of pregnancy from my doctor I went to work the next day still very excited and tried to hand it to the GM she told me to just read it to her so I told her I was expecting she then proceeded over a 30-45 min period to first ask me how my husband felt about “this” I told her he was extremely excited as well as I was she then proceeded to tell me that I already have enough going on and that I already have enough children and basically didn’t need another I defended myself against her right down to telling her that I gave birth to and shortly after my daughter passed away a lil over a year ago and that I feel extremely blessed to be pregnant again and told her that I’m not going to be able to do the maintenance bc of lifting the grease bin etc… she left for a sec and came back and told me that looks like fries is going to be your new position I have asthma and pregnancy makes asthma worse as well as smoke I told her that I can’t do that and she carried her negative attitude towards me all through out the day I knew she was going on vacation that night so I worked the next 2 days then had the next 3 days off on my 3rd day off I went and talked to my pregnancy counselor and told her my concerns about going back and that I didn’t want to she suggested to follow my heart and that I did I came home and my daughter gathered my uniforms and returned them! The DM called me about 2 weeks later and I explained to him what happened he said r u sure it didn’t just come out wrong I’m positive bc I defended myself constantly he said what she did wasn’t ok and that after I have the baby I can return to wendys at another location which I agreed to but I still feel completely disgusted with her actions and don’t feel that anything has even been done about it is that ok bc its a franchise is it ok for them to treat employees with such disregard and disrespect? I’m still extremely upset about what happened I don’t understand how someone can truly treat someone so badly and take such a blessing and turn it into something so horrible! I worked there for almost a year was NEVER late once only ever called off 1 time bc I was throwing up and couldn’t even get out of bed and came to work and did my job excellent I enjoyed working for wendy’s which is why I agreed to go back to another location but I need to know that what she did to me will never be done to another person bc I know a very large amount of employees that left that location for similar reasons

One of your Television ads shows people sitting at a table talking about how you can tell a good BBQ place. the comments were about pigs in a hat and pigs in coveralls. your wendy’s red head says how about a girl in pig tails.

Good morning Ms Tisha

This reason for this email is because I am still seeking a letter to only possibly say that I no longer work for your company. I have called and tried to receive something from the managers at Temple Location, but all that I have received is a cat and mouse game. I respect your company’s policies and decisions, even though I do feel that I was wrongfully terminated for defending myself. But that’s neither here or there anymore, it’s been a month and I’m still trying to get this letter or just some proof that I no longer work for the company. If the company is so quick to release employees with out fair trial, why can’t I get that proof as quickly? I understand and respect that everyone may be a little busy and the company does have alot of employees and other things to worry themselves about, but I’m just asking for one small thing, so that I can also move on with my life…

Thank you for having me as part of your company, and for giving me the opportunity to be apart of your company.<<<<<<<<<<<— sent Tuesday/Wednesday and today is Sunday, still waiting on reply…Temple Location

On Sunday, October 26th 2014,
My wife and I went to eat at wendy’s at 3750 Utopia Dr, Miramar, FL 33023. My wife found a sticker stuck to the bottom of the meat portion inside the sandwich (must’ve gotten cooked with the meat). We went to show it to the clerk and she showed it to the team. They offered us a free sandwich but we refused and walked out disgusted. Later my wife developed hives all over her arms and back and so did I, we ended up in the E.R. when it wasn’t getting any better. The doctor said it must’ve been a foreign body that caused this and the grill or meat could’ve been dirty. Three days later we are still suffering from the itch just because of negligence in handling/preparing the food. I’ve contacted wendy’s and explained everything to corporate then I got a call back from the general manager who had no idea about it because the shift manager nor the staff brought it up. Later they called to offer a refund to the meal and to pick any meal off the menu for free out of generosity. I am shocked at how inconsiderate people can be to belittle such incident where nothing was reported. We’ve been suffering because we ate a dirty meal at a reputable franchise. I’ve called to ask not to destroy any video evidence but was told this is out of their hands.

I am putting you on notice not to destroy video evidence and asking Wendy’s to compensate me for my wife’s medical bill in addition to our pain and suffering after eating at this place.

Thank you

I was ok with that however, i went around the store and saw on the window the inspection score was a 91 so I bagan the question myself. I went the the health inspection website and found that the score was an 82. I was most unhappy with the attitude I got after asking about the score and then th ebe LIED to that make me more angry. As I alo work in food service i am knowledgeable of the rules and regulations. I hope to hear back from someone in a timly matter as i WILL be taking this a step futher. Thanks Jessica

I am a US Veteran who works for Wendys in Ramsey ,NJ. I have 8 years of Wendys Experience. I was a shift supervisor prior to be active. I work hard for the company
The GM Carlos Munoz disrespects his employees. I was working one day and he was the only one there and guess what? The next manager and myself found a used condomn in the back!!!. I have worked hard and a employee who has been there for 3 months was promoted to shift supervisor above me. I have the training , experience , and give my 100 percent. I live very close to the store. I am very disappointed how Wendys at this store treats its veterans. I hope equality and fairness one day is instilled in this store.

I have the qualifications , experience , and training. They expect me to help train the new shift supervisor and cradle him. He got a lay raise exceeding mine but no experience and less work. I’m disgusted . If you really care the correction would done. The GM lacks any logic reason. Again, I love Wendys but not the unfair treatment of loyal employees.

First and foremost I would like to say that I am 46 years old and I have been eating at Wendy’s since I was a kid and Wendy’s was always my favorite place to eat hamburgers and I preferred your fast food restaurant over all the other competitors. The majority of the time that I have eaten at your Wendy’s Restaurants at many locations across the country I was more than satisfied with the quality of the food being served and the customer service being given. However, I live in Las Vegas, Nevada and the closest Wendy’s to me is located at 1151 S Rainbow Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89146. I normally am not a complainer. However that being said I ate at this particular location on Wednesday October 22, 2014 at approximately 6:15pm Pacific Time. I ordered a large Triple Burger Combo with no cheese, Large Fries and a Diet Coke. First of all I would like to inform you of how unprofessional the employees were and ignored not only me but several people in front of me when I ordered at the counter. Also I would like to talk about the quality of the food. The diet coke and the fries were good and in my opinion they should be because it is hard to screw up something that easy to prepare. However the Triple Burger I ate was absolutely horrible. It was obvious that whoever prepared that burger didn’t take any pride at all in doing there job. If I was that employee that prepared the burger they served me. I would ask myself is that a burger that I would eat myself? Like I said before I believe this is a direct reflection on the Management at that Wendy’s location. I would like to suggest if at all possible that maybe you can have Wendy’s District Manager’s make unannounced visits at there locations to see first hand the decline of customer service and the preparation of food. This is not the first time that I have had poor customer service and poor food preparation at this Wendy’s location it has happened many times in the past 6 months. I only hope that someone at the Corporate Level will actually read the positive comments as well as the complaints about Wendy’s so that they can rectify this situation and make Wendy’s a place that I enjoy eating at in the future.

Regarding Wendy’s in 76262-Alliance

It was around 8pm on 10/6/14 when I went to the drive thru. There was no one in line, however it took a long time for someone to take my order. The seemed like they didn’t care and were mumbling thru the speaker. I ordered a jr bacon cheeseburger for $1.89 and a value fry for .99. When I pulled up to the window the associate just stuck out his hand for a payment. I gave him $5 and he only gave me a bag of food. I asked him about getting change back and he said no it was $5 even. I asked him a few more times if he was sure, he said yes. Then I told him I wanted my receipt and he laughed and said, “Oh sorry you’re right including .24 tax the total is only $3.12” and he gave me change. The receipt he did give me was very short, doesn’t have the store# or store phone number on it. I do not think this is even the full receipt. The name on the receipt says Leonor. I immediately called the store and asked to speak to a manager. The person that answered the phone told me his name was Larry and he was the manager. I told him what happened. He told me that he was the associate at the window who messed up my change and that he didn’t see what the problem was because in the end I got my change so it wasn’t a big deal. He never apologized, was unprofessional, came off as if he was trying to steal, and came off as if he wasn’t really the manger. We used to go to Wendy’s all the time, however if we continue to go in the future I do not think we will go to this location. Service was horrible.

I am very disappointed to say that as a huge fan of wendys i will NEVER again go.to the wendys in winder ga. The cashiers are extremely rude and hateful, the managers are no better. When i called to complain about my service the night before i was met with the same rude and hateful attitudes. Today, i called and spoke with the gm of the store directly and the outcome was not much better, actually the only difference was that she offered to replace my ᤾2 sandwiches, but not the rest of my order. The people working in this store are the worst customer service people and seem to care nothing about their work or customers. I hate to say that this is close to being.my last visit to a Wendy’s at all.

Tonight while making an order at the drive through at your store at
7846 Garners ferry rd
Columbia S.C.
I had forgot a drink and asked the young ladie at the window if she could and she was very rude saying we don’t change orders at the window. I was handed my order and drove off with out my drink after getting to my hotel I saw I was charged for a drink and did not recive it. The young lady’s name is Arnae m.
Thought you would like to know that some employees may need to be trained on how to let people know some thing is not aloud.

Dear Sirs,

I know you are a family run business. How can you sponsor Dance Moms?
From one Dance competition Mom to another or to just DM fans in general I have a confession to make. For a long time now I have come back to this madness we love/hate called Dance Mom’s. I have completely cleared my schedule so that 9-10 on Tuesdays is free and open. The kids know if they are going to get sick or need anything wait until 10. It was a night I shared as Mom/daughter time with my dance girl. AND I AM ASHAMED.

I am ashamed as a Mother even of an adult dancer what I have encouraged and put in front of her. I am ashamed that I have sat by week after week making excuses for (It’s got to be fake-The kids know its not real-Well maybe its real) Trying to justify watching this train wreck that you cannot just seem to take your eyes off of. I began to look up things online and began to see scores not matching. Kids having dances we never knew won. I began to see the editing of a verbal fight take place and wow the Moms and Kids must be magicians. They can put there hair up and down in the blink of an eye and change clothes too.

In the first season we saw pieces of meanness come out of Miller. But I also saw some decent things and some compassion as well. Chloe falls Abby asks is she OK. Hugging Brooke. Second season things slowly began to change. Chloe beat Maddie at Nationals d ana title. Chloe got the Lux video and Miller changed. It was no more about having a favorite that we had seen since day one. It was about making everyone else less than.

Week after week I watched girls get red in the face and cry, have panic attacks, have chairs thrown at them, be mocked for their feet, be told they were stupid, telling Moms you need to take her to a doctor she’s not right in the head. This had gotten personal and uncalled for, It was no longer about just dance corrections it was about personal issues. It became about telling kids not to obey their parents to take a cab to dance . Mocking them and calling them babies.

Kim of Queens premiered and I watched her after a DM show. I saw a compassionate but firm coach who was a former Miss Georgia mold and shape little girls for the best. Yes she made them work but she saw the jewel in each one and she polished it to come out. I felt happy and refreshed watching Kim. She kept the Moms in their place and all but one respected her. Kim had no favorites, all was worth. When the one Mother got out of hand Kim took care of removing Angie while still leaving the daughter with self worth and self respect and has never taken something out on a child because she did not like her Mother. Kim don’t play and she knows how to handle slackers. She also know how to encourage her child who has just frozen on the stage to finish and that she can do it. They would move heaven and earth for Kim.

Then I see the mess with the Hyland girls going on and I cringe inside. I feel literally a knot in my stomach watching these kids get abused and wondering why don’t their Mothers do something whats wrong with them. Then Kelly did do something she snapped. She had had enough, we would have too had that been us. I am ashamed that after that scenerio that I came back to watch more kids hurt every week. I was a hypocrite complaining about the abuse and still watching.

The love of the girls always pulls us back in though and we began another season that has just only gotten worse. After watching the treatment of Chloe last night I felt sick to my stomach. Literally. I had read ahead so I knew she had made the comment to Chloe that was tweeted by not one but two witnesses at the competition “She needs to get her lazy eye fixed she will never get work. Fix her face” which was in reference to a health sinus issue Chloe had. And I realized something after finishing that episode and watching that little girl break down. Enough is enough. It would not have mattered if it was Nia or anyone else. And to tell your student you pulled from another studio “You better beat that girl” is beyond low. That is your student Abby you have taught since age two.

I am ashamed I allowed myself to sit back this long and not walk away. Miller has no business around children. Her ego has gotten bigger than she is. She is the exact opposite of her great Mother with an exact opposite teaching style. I don’t know what happened to Abby but its obvious she has a lot of past issues shes still dealing with and the cycle continues. Verbal abuse is the excessive use of language to undermine someone’s dignity and security through insults or humiliation in a sudden or repeated way.

Even if Chloe was to come back I could have no respect for Christi for reengaging in that. Chloe has a great Mom to stand up and advocate for her daughter. She stopped the madness. She said Enough is enough. The video they prepared ahead of time says it all. It’s on Youtube called NobodyisYOU

Kelly, Brooke and Paige had enough. Christi and Chloe have had enough. I have had enough. I am totally ashamed it took me so long to get here just to excuse my actions with “But I just want to watch them dance”. Christi tweeted one time if we ever saw what went on behind the scenes we’d never watch again. I don’t know everything that is behind the scenes but I am done. I am done with anything Collins or Abby related and possibly with Lifetime.
PLEASE RECONSIDER YOUR PARTNERSHIP WITH SPONSORING DANCE MOMS

This is a follow-up to my complaint. I will not do business with Legacy Restuarant Group in Topeka, Ks. However, I will give Wendys another shot because Corporate truly does care. I received a phone call from Robert “Bob” Wright, COO of Wendys who was very kind, apologetic, and truly cares about his customers. After a lengthy conversation with Mr. Wright I found that he is passionate about the company name and I believe that others within the company are as well. There are bad apples, every company has them. Even some people I may work with, may not do things properly or follow policy. These people shouldn’t be the cause of you not wanting to due business with a company anymore. I’ve found that if I go to a different Wendys or a Wendys that is not owned by the same people who had a poor experience with, then maybe you could see that there are Wendys that care about the customer and a job well done. I know that corporate Wendys cares about these things and have to believe that others do too.

The woman who made my bbq pulled pork on October 10 2014 2:50 pm got angry that i wanted lettuce instead of coleslaw and started to sweat at me. I confronted her back and she continued arguing with as if me wanting the sandwich that way was really making get angry then she started laughing at me. This was at your Westfield location. Was very embarrassed especially skincare by myself and it seemed that she was trying to encourage other employees to gang up on me. Thank you for your time.

I was a previous employee of Wendy’s located at 2031 E Oaklabd Park Blvd. Fort Lauderdadle, FL 33306. The first few months of working there was ok, although I will admit that I was tardy a lot & misplaced my name tag most of the time. I was told that if I can’t find my name tag, I couldn’t work. This has happened at least four times. The general manager, Nyron is very professional, fair and understanding. However, he could do a lot better at managing the store. The training was weird & quite vague. I never completed all of the online assessments. Some days I would be on the computer & some days I would be training hands on.
The store needs a lot of work. There are ants, roaches & flies inside the restaurant & sometimes the customers noticed it. Working at Wendys was a horrible experience for me because there was so much drama & negativity inside the store. It rubbed off on me & it was putting a lot of stress on me. The shift supervisor, Phidianna Francois & I have had a disagreement twice. I pity her & her lack of professionalism disgusts me. I don’t feel like she fits this position. She gossips about people behind their backs & talks about personal problems at work. I’ve witnessed her disrespect a co-worker of mine SEVERAL times. Rather than praising the employees when they do good, she rather find something nasty to say. She also speaks creole so that no one knows what she is talking about. I will admit she has tried helping me countless times. But, once i seen who she was behind the mask, my respect for Phidianna has gone out the window. I cursed her out & quit. I couldnt take it anymore. I reached my breaking point. I cant work at wendys knowing I wasnt happy there. Too much. Negative energy. I wanted to cause severe harm to Phidianna, but instead I prayed for her. Dave Thomas would be so disappointed! I need the corporate office number PRONTO. I would like my last check(s) to be mailed to my home address

My name is William Stewart, I’ve just got employeed by Wendy’s at 4965 Flat Shoals in Decatur, Ga, my first night working was last night. When I got there it was a issue with my name tag, I ask could they put the name Chase on it and the managers William and Faye told me no after I told the on the application it ask what name would I rather go by and they told me my name on my birth certificate will get put on it. After a couple minutes go by theu bring the name tag and it had the name STEWART on it. I didn’t get any training and the manager Faye expected me to know where things where and hope to operate some of the machines. If I run out of fry and nugget boxes and tell her she wouldn’t just let me go get the necessary things I was needing; the she hollar at me when she ask for a order that’s been on the screen and it’s not up yet. I have to remind her I ask you give minutes ago that I needed these things. After I scrub and mopped the entire store I got some water bc I’ve been there 6 hours with nothing to drink and again she raises her voice bc I told her I needed something to drink. At the end of the night she went in the system and did something to my time , so I asked her can I get my TIME SLIP FOR MY PERSONAL RECORDS AND SHE DENIED ME THE RIGHT TO HAVE IT AFTER I WITNESS THE TWO OTHER EMPLOYEES HAVE THERES. THE RESTAURANT IS BEING RAN LIKE A CONCENTRATION CAMP AND I’VE HAD SEVERAL EMPLOYEES COME TO ME NOT HAPPY. I’ve heard them down talk the employees cursing and threating them, I honestly think the store needs to be under new management, I’ve been a manager of a restaurant and I’m pretty sure the way they are running it that’s not the correct way. I also think the company needs to send someone Unhappy New Hire

I feel Dave Thomas is rolling in his grave and his daughter should be ashamed of Wendy’s, in Ormond Beach, Fl at 75 Williamson Blvd., Store #00002062.

Finally have decided this will be the last time to go to Wendy’s!!! Today, October 3, 2014 at 7:00 PM, my husband went to get us a Wendy’s #1, it took longer, because they told him they were doing fresh meat hamburgers, ok a littler longer should be fresh and hot, right?? Well when he brought our #1’s home they were less than warm, French fries cold, (must have been leftovers from lunch hour)…terrible meal!!! We only live2 miles from this Wendy’s, so meal should of gotten cold for the short distance. What a lousy mEal, thus was!!!

I think those who work there and those in corporate could care less, just give their order who cares what it’s like!! Rude, ignorant, hostile, people work there and it also must be true about corporate, also Wendy, Dave Thomas’ daughter really doesn’t care… Money, money, money, is what they want, but they won’t be getting mine any more, they could care less about the customer.

Note, please don’t have the store manager call me and offer a replacement, why would I want a replacement of a cold meal?

Please be assured that everyone I know will be told about cold meals from Wendy’s.

Dear Mr Brolick
I am very concerned about your Wendy’s. Restaurant. Located in Memphis tn at 3990 south third st.
I visited this location today at 3:11pm Oct 1.
I ordered a loaded potato,and a small Apple pecan salad. When I received my order I checked it befor leaving the drive thru
I was appalled at the appearance of the chicken that was n the salad it was 3 chunks of old dried up chix.
I told the cashier I wasn’t pleased with the presentation of the chix it wasn’t sliced and the serving was inadequate, I received the wrong dressing,instead of calling for the manager,or taking the initiative to solve the problem,she screamed in the back of the restaurant to tell employees the complaint,
The resolution was telling me that is the amount of chixt they put on the salad 3 of the female employers look out the window and just frown at me.
I was so upset I didn’t realize until I got home I wasn’t
given a receipt for my purchase,
I have worked in the food and hospitality business for over 20 years and I have never seen such lack of pride in an establishment such as this,
Wendy’s definitely need to redefine their motto
Because quality and freshness of products is not being fulfilled at this location,customer service skills are also lacking among the staff.
Mr Brolick I have noticed online Customer Service
And product quality is among the highest ranked
Complaints, this tells me two things,either you are hiring the wrong people to represent your brand,or the
Company itself doesn’t care about the people who are buying their product!
Wendy’s have been around since 1969
I would suggest if Wendy’s franchise’s. wish to remain open thru 2014, I would like to humbly recommend as CEO you start taking customer complaints very serious.and start resolving the problems,and spend more money on training staff.
I grew up with Wendy’s in our neighborhoods as a child,I would hate to see Wendy’s become only a
Memory,because of the closings, once customers no longer want to purchase food products because of
lack of concern and false advertising among this company.
Sincerely
Rita Campbell

When I mistakenly ordered a chocolate shake a few years ago, I was treated with the most delicious surprise. Since then, I have gone exclusively to Wendy’s when I get fast food so that I can enjoy the best chocolate shake if any fast food chain. I was disappointed yesterday when my local Wendy’s said they could not make a chocolate shake, just strawberry or vanilla. I cancelled my order and went to Subway. I decided to try again today. Again they said they could not make chocolate shakes, but they included the word “anymore”. They let me know that corporate has decided to discontinue all shakes. I am extremely disappointed and sad to say that I will not be choosing Wendy’s any more.

Hi my name is Bianka l. Garcia I have recently been employed at wendys August 30th 2014 at location 3801 west broward blvd and 441 Fort Lauderdale fl 33312 . Recently Friday night September 26, 2014 I left the wendys store during working hours because I felt as if I was being treated unfairly . My supervisor for the night Ms. Neicy deliberately payed hands on me when I did not get an order right and in a forceful manor pulled me and proceded to yell in my face. Feeling threaten I did nothing to retaliate she kept antagonizing me and falsely accused me to be on the telephone when I was clearly in range of a camera . She then refused me the privilege to use the bathroom 3 times unless I I exchanged my phone . Still antagonizing she repeatedly walk through the restaurant making remarks saying that me as well as two other employers are upsetting her and making threats and profanity that we better not make her go there because we are not going to like it. I then could not take any more threats so in fear my reaction was to walk out the store where I was locked out and let go for job abandonment . I feel like I was treated unfairly and am willing to take legal action if the matter is not at least discussed ! Thank you please get back to me – bianka garcia ( garcia.bXXXX@yahoo.com ) (954)774-XXXX

To start, I had a co-worker visit a local Wendy’s location and she received a side salad that was made poorly with brown lettuce. The co-worker left a comment online and was sent an email stating they would replace her side salad on her next visit. The following day I had decided to go to Wendy’s for lunch and the co-worker printed out the email and had asked if I could pick up her replacement side salad, which I agreed to do. When arriving to the location, they were poorly understaffed with 20+ people in the lobby waiting to order and close to the same amount of cars in the drive-through. I had decided to go home for a moment on my lunch hour and during my trip would be traveling past another local Wendy’s restaurant owned by the same franchise called Legacy Restaurant Group. I had called the restaurant that was close to my home, in hopes that they could possibly replace the side salad since they were owned by the same franchise and in essence, “came out of the same pocket”. A manager answered the phone and I had asked if they were able to replace the side salad, if I was to provide the email stating it would be replaced. The manager replied “I am not sure, hold on I will check”, then she came back on the line and stated “We are really busy, can you call back in 10 minutes?”. I replied that I could. Then 10-15 minutes pass and I call back. Another manager answers the phone “Wendy’s” and I reply “Yes, I was told to call back in 10 minutes and…” the manager abruptly interrupts me and says “Is this Juan?”. Surprised I respond “No, I am not Juan”. The manager then says “Hold on a second..” and as I am on hold (the manager lowering the phone, not an actual hold) says “WHY ARE YOU CRYING? GET BACK OUT THERE AND RUN YOUR FLOOR!”. After hearing this, the manager comes back on the line and says “Hello? Are you with Juan?”. I replied “No, I am not with Juan” and she replies “well okay, what can I help you with?”. The entire time she is talking to me like I am inconveniencing her. I stated “I don’t need anything” and hung up. It is disconcerting that a manager believes it is a positive coaching technique to yell at an employee to stop crying and run their floor (which leads me to believe it was the shift manager crying that answered the phone the first time requesting I call back in 10 minutes because she was overwhelmed). I then call a different local Wendy’s to give my feedback and advise the management what I had overheard. The manager I spoke with was very friendly and stated she would have her district manager give me a call back. She took my name and phone number and promised a call from her superior. The next day I called the same Wendy’s again to see about a follow-up from the district manager and was assured I would receive one. Time passes and it is now 2 weeks later. During the course of the 2 weeks, I had decided to give my local Wendy’s another try however rude they may be to their employees, because let’s face it.. They have good food at good prices. Their customer service is lacking though and very poor. I visited my local Wendy’s three separate times within the course of the 2 weeks after my experience. On each occasion there was an issue. The first visit, they forgot my child’s toy in her kid’s meal, which I had to drive back up and retrieve. The second visit, I requested a double stack with ketchup only and a 4 piece chicken nugget. They put the works on my double stack, not ketchup only and did not put any barbeque sauce in the bag for my chicken nuggets. I called the restaurant and advised them of the error on the double stack and also mentioned the barbeque sauce not being in the bag. The manager who was pleasant stated she would put my name down to replace the double stack and would go ahead and add a 4 piece chicken nugget to replace as well. I told her it was not necessary, however she insisted. Last night I went to get my daughter a kid’s meal and have my two items replaced. Once getting to the drive-through, they did not have my name down and once everything was straightened out, I got home to a value fry and barbeque sauce, not a 4 piece nugget and again, they forgot my child’s toy. I called the franchise office and a district manager by the name of Becky called me back. Becky sounded very much like the manager that reprimanded the employee over the phone. She was very unpleasant, unprofessional, and kept asking “what is it you want me to do?”. I stated she should be aware of what to do in her position and I wanted her to take my feedback, provide appropriate coaching and correct the problem. She replied with much sarcasm “Oh yes, we will make every experience absolutely perfect for you”. She spoke down to me and belittled me, every opportunity she got. She continued to say “Oh, quit gripping”. Our conversation did not end on a good note and there was no resolution to the issue. I have since left a message for the Vice President of Legacy Restaurant Group in hopes of a call back. However, I am not counting on it.

I visited your location on Rand Road in Arlington Heights, IL, on Saturday evening (Sept 20th) for lunch as I have been doing for the last 4 years. I work in the area and have taken 100’s of lunch breaks during that time. I will not be going back anytime soon due to the disaster staff you now have working there. I am not exactly sure what happened, but there are people there who shouldn’t be working anywhere.

6:30 pm—placed food order inside
6:45 pm—still waiting with 2 other customers for a JBC and fries (ABSURD)

Reason I was waiting: Staff members screaming at each other, grabbing each other by the throat, fighting, shoving, etc. It was a horrific display for your franchise. Something needs to be done about it right away so I am bringing it to your attention in case the manager or whatever was in charge that night has not taken care of the matter. It may or may not matter to you, but you have no idea how much business this is actually going to cost you in the next 2 months. Everyone from our store eats lunch there all the time and I will make sure that isn’t going to happen now unless I know the matter has been taken care of.

I have also heard recent stories of laughter in the drive-thru when people are placing orders, and then the orders being incorrect of course. Please hire people that are grown-up next time. This location was pretty good for a long time, and somehow you have lost it in the last couple months. Fix it before its too late. If there is a next time when I decide to go back and this happens again, I will be calling the police on the spot and let them take care of the matter for you.

Ok, I was a manager at the Wendy’s in Darien Georgia site 7955. I just got fired today because of a safe shortage I asked the general manager to look at the tapes to review it and she declined. I also suggested that the police get involved again she declined. I Have put so much time and effort in to that store I have worked off the clock almost everyday that I have been there. They tell me that they do not like paying people over time. The crew members have also been working off the clock they have approached me about it several times and I have brought it to the general managers attention. There is a lot of stuff going on in that store and I think it should be investigated. Every time I try to talk to someone about it I got in trouble and they threatened to fire me. I guess they succeeded. Also the inventory in that store is way off they add stuff to make it look like they are not short but they are adding things. They make crew members pay back money if it is missing from thier registers and they make them work like dogs and talk to them like crap. There is a lot more things going on but I will not disclose them at this time I would really like someone to contact me of higher authority not Steve or mike because Cheryl always says that they will be on her side no matte what. That’s why I didn’t say anything for the longest because she intimidates people and if you don’t do what she says or even question her you will end up with no job. I have two kids to support and now I have lost my job for nothing.

Hello,
I want to start off saying that I stop eating at all fast foods chains except Wendy’s because my food is always fresh until today. I went to the Wendy’s in Alexandria VA on Van dorn street and I ordered the number 10 spicy chicken nuggets. I didn’t receive spicy nuggets I got regular under cooked nuggets. As soon i bit into the nuggets i had to spit it out because they needed to stay in the frier for about five more mins. On top of undercooked nuggets my fries was like i was eating a bucket of salt. The only thing that was right was the drink. I had already drove off and was down the street but if i knew the food was going to be this bad i would have checked my food before I pulled off. I’m very disappointed in Wendy’s and this is why I agree with the current pay because if you want more money at least cook the food all the way through,

My daughter is employed at a Wendy’s here in Ohio. The treatment she receives from two of the managers is horrible. Her father and I have encouraged her to quit several times, but because she has a son and wants to be independent, she won’t. One manager took a sandwich from a customer and through it at my daughter’s chest and told her to make it over because it was made incorrectly. Several of the employees have quit, including managers in the past few months, just to keep from reacting in a way that would get them in trouble. This place has a very high turnover for employees. It’s difficult to hear about what she goes through day to day at this place and demeaning they are treated. It’s awful.

I live in Monroe Michigan and use the 1712 N Telegraph store.. I stopped going to Wendy’s because issues with the wrong food or missing food I was getting BUT my husband likes the burgers so I agreed to go back, In the last month I’ve ordered 2 large salads, one with the strawberry’s of which I got one strawberry in it and it wasn’t a whole strawberry and another time I ordered a barbeque chicken salad and it had the core of the lettuce head cut in half and was in my salad. I’m not a complainer BUT if my husband EVER asks me again to go to Wendy’s I will divorce him. I don’t understand the problem is with making a salad, Maybe you should consider paying more an hour and getting BETTER help…
Signed
OVER IT !!!!

I am so disappointed at Wendy’s. First you take away your taco salad and replace it with the baha salad.Now I find out you no longer sell that salad. Please make up your minds.I wasn’t to angry when one of your employee accidently put her name tag in my order. Now I’m upset you changed things again.When I found out about this I actually went to McDonald’s. I know you’re proably saying that’s 1 customer. That 1 customer is 1 less. Please think about that. Thank you

Wherever did you find such horrible, ignorant, rude employees to work the counter at your restaurant on Mt. Lebanon Blvd/Castle Shannon? I am sick and tired of being ignored when I come in to the restaurant and want to order. Everyone is fighting and complaining about how lousy it is to work at Wendy’s. With attitudes that bad, those employees could not work anywhere and should be grateful for their positions at Wendy’s. They consistently aggravate and agitate the customers into not returning for another meal. WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE MANAGEMENT??? In addition, the place is filthy, tables are all sticky, food all over the floor, dirty chair seats, deplorable bathrooms. Please hire a whole new crew of workers. Sorry to complain but I can’t stand it any longer.

I run a business right next to Wedny’s in Gibsonia Pa. The store just reopened after it went down for remodel. Now in the past week they have set my mulch on fire by throwing down their cigarette butts, gotten rocks all over in my landscaping when they put rocks around their parking lot, and finally they have come down and tried to recruit all my employees offering them more money. If these are the business ethics that Wendy’s actively uses and supports I’m am glad i have never nor will I ever work for this company! They obviously do not teach their managers and district managers well enough to hire and train their own crew they must buy other bushiness people.The store may have gotten a face lift but to bad the company that runs it has not got any morals.

I went to the drive thru window at your Wendy’s Store Number 5740 on Yadkin Road, Fayetteville, NC. I ordered an Apple Pecan salad. I picked up the salad and drove to my office, and the first thing I found was a nasty hair right on top of everything. Your employees need to pay more attention to detail when serving these items. I threw the salad in the trash.

My entire family loves Windys but the one on Hwy 68/80 going into Bowling Green, Kentucky a year or so ago it was starting to need better supervisiory in the cleanliness of the resturant and the bathrooms. We went in last night which was Augiust 19,2014 and it smelt of dirty nasty carpet and the trash was in the floor and I went to bath room and the trash can was running over in the floor. I live in Leqwisburg, Kentucky and there use to be a Windys years ago in Russellville, Kentucky now we drive to Bowling Green Kentucky to eat at Windys but usaully go through the drive through but after going in and seeing the condition of the inside and the bathroom I am afraid to think what the kitchen area is like. I sure wish you could clean this resturant up so it won’t go under because of lack of care of the job and the right kind of supervision. I know these resturants were started and kept clean as it could be dealing with all the traffic in and out if I was a health inspector I would close this one till it was whipped back into what the name Windys stands for clean eating area and clean and geat food. I have been in management and I know what it takes to make a business come back and or to stay alive thank you for reading this hope there is movement on the problem.

So I’m sorry about the cold or wrong food but we are grown adults most of everyone needing a job working in an enviorment that wouldn’t be safe for your pet to work in there is no help for us bc as you speak up they make you quit or get fired this shouldn’t be the wendy’s way I feel sorry for the workers and its bc of how stressed and unhappy they are that is reflecting on the customer PLEASE do something about how badly employees are treated

I’m really upset about the new Wendy’s commercial. To be with you, is a great song & you all hacked it up! Not to mention the smarthy red head you all shove down our throats. Kill that commercial , get rid of the smart ell ick who thinks she is all that on your commercials, it is not cool to insult someone in every commercial ,just because they are brown baggin it or just broke and didn’t order WENDYS! Maybe they are saving for a house, maybe child support is killing them, maybe their sickly wife gets his lunch packed with LOVE. And all she can do of a morning and has to rest to walk to the chair in the afternoon! People are not ignorant or cheap or dummy’s because they didn’t order WENDYS! To the contrary, the way prices have been sneaking up they wod be wise to avoid WENDYS !

So
Hire a jingle writer!
Kill all the crappy commercials you have out!
Fire the red head
Quit trying to screw people on prices!

i am very very unhappy with how one of your franchise serviced me at 1:45 am on August 2,2014. I had bought 2 pretzel hamburgers 1with bacon and a cup of chilli lrg dr.pepper and a minute maid lemonade.

1. The pretzel hamburgers had no hamburger on them.

2. The bacon looked over cooked

3. The appearance was disgusting it was just thrown SLOPPY put together.

4. IT WAS COLD.

For me having a pretzel hamburger for the 1st time i was expecting for it to be better than how it was today. The employees are rude to their customers you have one guy always complaining and whem he has to bring the food to your car he gives you attitude and sucks his teeth and walks away. They do not use hair nets for those who have hair. My experience was just flat out disgusting and am very not happy with how my food came out the service. The supervisor said she will have them make ot better but i still have to pay for them. Why do i have to pay for their wrong doing. I would like my money back i payed $17.75 for ridiculous service and food.

I want to make a complaint. The Wendy’s in Bridgewater on US Rt 22 in NJ. I have been there several times and each time the service is horrendous. I do not usually make complaints, but this time they went too far. I asked for a container for a frosty in a waffle cone. The worker was condescending and just says” Uh no”. Then I requested that I get the frosty as the last item since I was going through the drive thru, so that it doesn’t melt. They just ignored it. This was all in front of the manager. I also requested honey mustard for the Chicken nuggets I ordered and they never gave it to me.
Everytime I leave there, they miss something. They are rude and obnoxious. They really should shut that place down. The service is terrible. I will put it on the web if I don’t hear anything back from you.

I was at the Wendy in St Paul MN located on University Ave. Now let’s say I stood in line for 25 minuets, while six people behind me left. I ordered 14 cheeseburgers and 7 French fries to feed the 7 clients I had back home at a group home, I am employed at when I arrived home I had 9 cheeseburger, leaving some of my clients short for dinner, I called Wendys explained I was shorted the burgers I had my receipt and would be back the Manager told me I handed you 3 bags, I said yes you did but the order was wrong he than told me I will have to watch the video tape and call you back when I figure this out, to say the least, I never received a phone call back, I was out the money for the burgers, I had to go to McDonalds and replace the other clients burgers so they could have dinner. I will never step foot in a Wendys again they have far more money than I do, how pathetic the way you treat customers like they are thieves.

My husband and I recently went to the Wendy’s here in Union City, TN. The service was terrible, and there were not enough employees working to take care of the customers. There was not a long line, either. When we approached the counter a young lady was filling beverages. She continued to do this and not even so much as, “I’ll be right with you.” Actually totally ignoring us.
Your company needs to have one person who does nothing but take the orders and others who are filling drinks and food orders. This is not just a one time occurrence–the service is poor every time that I go. After FINALLY getting our order there was no thank you, I’m sorry you had to wait or anything.
One thing that I realize that the employees have no control over—it is totally absurd that you do not have the beverage dispenser located so that customers can fill/refill their own beverages. Yours is the ONLY fast food restaurant in which customers must wait in line behind ordering customers to simply get a refill. This really discourages me from visiting your establishment.
I would frequent your restaurant more often if the service were better and the beverage dispenser were available for me to fill/refill my own drink.
Thank you for your consideration of these matters.

It seems that all above complaint’s are in the month of July from all parts of the country.
Guess, I need to add mine which is from Jacksonville, Florida, your store number 77, located at 12911 Atlantic Blvd. I was there on 7/26/2014 @ 1:40PM. After placing order the girl asked if large or medium (?) I did not understand since I had order the combo that came with spicy chicken sandwich, fries & drink. I later found it was about upgrading; she should have said would you like to upgrade your order, that would have made sense. While having late lunch there I could hear the manager complaining to the staff about this & that. She was very loud and demanding in her voice. Sorry to see the downfall of Wendy’s by their employees; seems to be no pride in serving your customers.

I was on family vacation with my kids, we stopped in the Wendy’s in South Haven Michigan off of Phoenix Road. The line for inside was 6 people long…each register. So we went to the drive thru. WRONG thing to do! The line when we got there was 4 cars, okay can do that. The wait was 45 minutes to the window! To give our order it was 30 minutes! 15 minutes from the order box to the pay window???? No excuse! We watched 2 vehicles leave, one made people back up in line, the other went over the cement and left! I asked for a manager, explained how this was unacceptable to have to wait this long in the drive thru. It was a Friday night, tourists were coming in. I get it being busy, but we thought to give it another try. Yesterday we went into the restaurant for lunch…The cashier was very slow, got our order wrong 2 times!! Placed the receipt on a tray with someone else’s food, thinking we were staying there to eat. It was just chaos behind the counter. Either the manager needs to hire more for weekend summer help or needs to be retrained in customer service. That will be the last time I will be going to that particular Wendy’s. I will go to the Arby’s down the street. My family members, sisters, cousins, have had the same thing happen to them. For such a booming city with tourists and such easy access from the expressway, I expected more from that location. It was never like this…it has gone downhill in the past couple years. Thank you for taking the time to read this.

My husband and I stopped for food at Wendys on West Main Street, Babylon, NY, Store #2461, at 6:30 P.M. I was absolutely appalled at the filthy women’s rest room. It truly was disgusting. The floor was soaking wet, puddles, and toilet paper strewn all over the place, piles and mounds of it. There were no paper towels, the toilet was filthy. I went to the counter and asked to speak to a Manager. I told the Manager the condition of the ladies room and he said “OK” I told him it was how disgusting it was and asked him again to respond to this, he said “OK”. That’s it, no apology, no- “I will have someone take care of it right away” Nothing but a smug smile and “OK.” I told him I was going to report this and asked the store number and again, “OK”. That’s it- not only filthy but a poor excuse of a Manager as well.

Well that explains a lot! The last few times I’ve been in there the food and especially, the service had been horrible! We used to go to Wendy’s regularly but stopped because of this. Our order was completely messed up on a Friday evening – the fries were bitter, as if the oil was older than dirt! There was no bacon on the Jr. Bacon cheeseburgers (all 4 of them) the unsweetened ice tea was sweeter than sweet. When I called from the car on our way out of town The manager told me she ‘came in to a mess’ and had been trying to fix it since she’d been there. Maybe she wasn’t just talking about that one specific night! At 5 pm there was 1 person in the dining room – and only 2 people ahead of us, the woman waiting for her salad had been there she said almost 15 minutes waiting for it to be made and waited another 5 after they put it on the counter waiting for the dressing – the other customer in front of us walked out without ordering because he was tired of waiting. We should have taken that as a sign! Oh and I was told by the manager that they would only be able to replace the order Friday or Saturday. $16 bucks down the drain.

On Friday, July 11, 2014 I stopped at the Wendy’s on Bay Road in Saginaw, MI. I asked for an Apple Chicken Pecan salad. The lettuce was brown! Yuk! For $6.39, I could buy a lot of GREEN lettuce and make my own salad. On Monday, July 14th I emailed the address on the receipt and complained about the brown lettuce. After I finished the “survey” and submitted it, I got the reply “we will contact you within two business days”. Well, here it is, nine business days later and still no “reply”. Apparently, Wendy’s does not believe in customer satisfaction! I have decided that I will no longer eat at Wendy’s. Your food is too expensive…especially when it is old and there is no such thing as customer satisfaction! I don’t think the founder, Dave would be happy with how Wendy’s is being operated!

On July/15/2014 @ 12:36PM, I stopped at you Wendy’s location in Wwst View Plaza in Pittsburgh, PA. I ordered a soft Pretzel burger and a frosty. The menu board was right in front of me and said the sandwich was $4.79.. It rang up $5.09. I asked the girl why and she could not understand what I was wanting so I waited til I got to the window. She asked a voice out of my sight and she said tell her it was the tax. The girl hesitated but told me what she was told. I paid and she said I am putting the receipt in the bag for you to go over. I was on my way out of town and did not get to look at it till I got to where I was going. The girl at the window knew that was wrong but had to tell me what she was told. I resent being LIED to. The voice just wanted rid of me because at the bottom of the receipt was the tax. This is poor business. I freqent Wendy’s ofter but this one seems to always have problems with me and my neighbors and friends. Thank you for taking the time to read this. Hoping that something will be done about this.

Wendy`s store location #41 Marietta GA on Roswell Rd. Staff unprofessional and rude. Gave cashier (SeQuanna) twenty dollars for order and she cashed me out only giving 10 dollars. Moved me to the side to take additional orders, once I noticed I had incorrect change with no receipt brought this up to cashier and Manager. “Oh you did get your receipt”……(me) “no I didn’t”, receipt found in trash behind counter balled up. Assist Manager (Montrell) states he will go to back and count drawer. Came back and told me the drawer was accurate in less than five minutes. “Sorry but there is nothing else we can do ma`am”. I asked the assist manager to view video due to surveillance camera on register and was told only the GM can access. Knowing I only had a twenty dollar bill Wendy’s stole from me and started treating me as if I stole from them. I called police which caused the GM to come in on his day off, police and GM attempt to view video but now the time on receipt and time on video aren’t the same and I am no where to be found on the video. Isn’t that strange. The GM tells me he trust his staff. I guess he thinks that I would go as far as calling the corporate office, calling the police and asking them to stop guessing and just view video for verification and be lying. Wendy’s stole from me and my family!!!! Its not that we won’t survive because of the ten dollar lose but its the principle of the matter. Store #41you should be ashamed….THIEVES AND LIARS. I just wanted my correct change back

I called the store in Smithfield, Va and spoke to a GM. Supposedly she filed a “claim” and said I should hear from someone.

While ordering food from the drive-thru, a young man and his girlfriend were shot numerous times by someone on foot. After the gunman ran off, the injured young man staggered out of his car and tried to get help from the employees inside. 2 of the employees opened the door, stepped outside, saw the man pleading for their help, & they immediately shut and locked the door in his face. They proceeded to close all of the shades over the windows, and they all left out of the door on the other side of the building, leaving these 2 people to fend for themselves. The young woman died. Wendy’s doesn’t make food good enough to choke that down! Those were paying customers that needed help. So, I think everyone should know how Wendy’s employees treat their customers. The following day, one of the slain girl’s relatives tied 2 balloons to the fence to show respect. As soon as the Manager opened the store, she went outside to cut them down. 2 small balloons! You can keep your burgers. I think that good customer service goes much farther than just smiling and saying thank you. It’s being human and compassionate. Wendy’s is neither of these things.

Please contact me my wife went to your restaurant and one of the employees threaten to hit her threw her window at the drive thru because she want to speak to the manager. So I drove to the restaurant and spoke to the assistant manager and the whole time I was talking to him they was in the back laughing and having a good time over it talk about what they shoulda done my wife. She had a 6 month old in a 12 year old in the car with her. Jeremy Allemond

I think your commercials are WRONG. You have a ” perfect” girl advertising the food and not once does she eat the food. What wrong with the real Wendy or a more realistic person doing them and will actually eat the food. Is she saying the food no good or what. Just think you should try someone or something new. Just my opinion don’t know if anyone else agrees or not. Thank you for your time

Today (July 13) I stopped at the drive in window at your Rt. 8 branch in Allison Park, PA. I asked the girl for Two Apple Pecan Chicken Salads and then asked to make it three. I also ordered a small chili and three Strawberry Teas, small size. When I pulled up to pay I received a dollar change and said they forgot my chili. I always count my order since this store or the West View, Pa branch always screws up the order. The guy gave me my change and said that the girl forgot to put it on the order and asked if I wanted one and I said forget it. I got home to find I have three Asian Chicken Salads. One person can not have chasers and the other two hate hot dressings. I call the location to report it and he tells me to come back and they will give it to me free next time and I tell him that I have done that and no one gives it to me. I also told him that I got no receipt. None with change and none in the bag. Brian is the guy in charge and he tells me that I should have gotten a receipt and I said apparently your folks are not handing them out and it seems to be your problem not mine.
I am done with Wendy’s. I can understand a mistake once in a,while but why it is necessary for me to pull up and check every single order before I leave is beyond me. I don’t have problems like this with McDonalds or Arby’s. I really enjoyed your salads and some of your sandwiches and chili but is not worth me driving back 6 or 7 miles to go get it straightened out each time.
It is sad that I society of workers do not take pride in their work no matter what they do. Perhaps someone from corporate needs to go undercover to see what is taking place in your establishments or maybe you need to have client surveys to get an idea where your establishments are falling short. As for me it is just not worth the agfrivation any longer

I am currently at wendys. I’ve worked at other wendys before. I know how to do almost everything but the grill. Now with all that said we recently had evaluations and results came back. All the new people that never has worked a day in their life gets 10 cent raises and the people that has experience like me don’t even get one penny more an hour. Now why is it that people who work hard every day for many years don’t get a raise but the people who never worked gets all the raises. Wendys needs to remember that they are not the only company out there I can get a job somewhere else I DO NOT HAVE TO WORK THERE

I tried to complete your survey twice – yesterday & today. Your recording says it will only take 6 minutes. However, I was still answering questions after 8 minutes & 34 seconds when the questions stopped & your survey went dead yesterday. So, today I tried again, and after 6 minutes and 14 seconds the exact same thing happened. So, I tried calling your corporate number. The call was answered quickly, but transferred to “Customer Relations” and I was on hold for 17 minutes. I just could not stay on hold longer. So I am writing to you. There is something very wrong with your customer service. All I wanted to do was take your survey so that I could take advantage of $2 off on my next purchase of a large salad or large sandwich. My 48 hours are up today & I have already wasted over 31 minutes trying to complete your phone survey. My time is worth far more than $2 for all of the frustration I have endured, just trying to complete your survey. I hope other customers don’t have to encountered what I have gone through.

I feel this practice is unfair as I do not drink Soda and drink Ice Tea only sometimes.
I am re considering going to Wendy’s which is right around the corner and I go there once a week.

When I clocked out July 8, 2014 it shows that I have worked 0.47 minutes. Again my hours were cut due to labor. We get a receipt stating our hours it showed that I worked 0.47 minutes for my shift and also weekly when clearly I worked the previous day. ..I am located at Wendy’s in Chesapeake VA 23320 on 1630 South military Highway.

I’ve never had any issues with Wendy’s until recently when I became an employee
At store#20 in san Antonio Tx. The manager Rosie and front register attendant, Jessica were extremely rude and belittling in front of many guests while I waited for my turn to order and asked for my discount. Policy or not it was unnecessarily exaggerated in front of every one when they asked if I was serious about receiving the discount then proceeded to both tell me how I didn’t qualify to receive one due to being off… wether it was policy or not underlined in the terms of the handbook-of which she referred to it was still degrading. This is not my main job. I have a job with respecatble monetary return and this isn’t something i have to subject myself to I can work for any corporation. I chose Wendy’s out of convenience. If this is how you treat your employees then I want no part of it as I am a man of integrity and self dignified in my endeavors. Worse customer service experience by far.

About 3 1/2 months ago i decided to go to Wendy’s right across the street from my job. Located in Myrtle Beach,Sc right off of kings Hwy. I ordered the spicy chicken caesar salad, which is my favorite. I went through the drive thru so when i got back to work, which is right across the street, I started to eat my salad. Maybe like four bites in i noticed that something was in my salad. I picked through it and realized it was a big bug and it was all throughout the salad, i was sick to my stomach. So, i went back immediately afterwards and gave the salad to the manager and explained what happened. She didn’t have much empathy at all… she wrote down my name,address and phone number on a piece of paper and refunded my money to me. I haven’t heard a word from them and when i get a salad from somewhere i think about it. I wanted to go in and speak with the store manager but i don’t think that would of made a difference. Before this incident i would go there maybe 2 or 3 times a month and i wpuld always order a snack wrap and a side salad and there seemed like something was always wrong with the order but i did like Wendy’s so that’s why i would go back every so often. The staff doesn’t seem to be the happiest.. I’ve worked in fast food, waited tables and now I’m in retail, so i know customer service. I haven’t been to ANY Wendy’s since.. i don’t plan on going in the near future either.

I was at the location in Eagan MN off pilot knob with my family and while waiting in line to order I noticed one of the associates standing on a piece of cardboard above the fryers spraying chemical cleaner up into the vents!!! I was absolutely mortified and appalled!!! That is a serious health hazard and I took pictures of the event to report any violations this particular Wendy’s has created. And to add to this, not only was this associate standing on a piece of small cardboard (who knows where their shoes have been) not covering the food well (though they shouldn’t have been doing this at all), other associates were moving the cardboard WHILE this person was spraying the chemical and grabbing/moving food around to provide to the customers. I will never go back to this Wendy’s and make sure to spread the word to others to avoid this particular location as the food could send you to the hospital. I have a 1 year old daughter and 3 year old son that I do not want to see get extremely sick due to their lack of health procedures. I wonder what would happen if a health inspector were to walk into their place….

My son recently visited the Wendy’s on Sawmill Rd. in Santa Fe, NM. He dropped his wallet (without realizing) on his way out of town. When he noticed his wallet was missing, he texted me and said he last used it at Wendy’s. I went to the location and the staff was wonderful. They were all so professional. One young woman especially, Jennifer, was very attentive. She had found my son’s wallet and was having it held for him in the manager’s office, until my son returned for it. I want to commend this fine young woman for her honesty and integrity. All money (a lot of it) and ID and everything was still in the wallet. It could have been a real nightmare, but instead, it was a wonderful relief. THANK YOU SO MUCH, WENDY’S!!!! You have definitely employed a wonderful person that did the right thing here. Great job!!

In temple hills md, my family member works for Wendys for over 2 yrs, during her first year of college. She also had to pay money out of her own pocket to replace while someone else was also working out of her drawer. She worked the first year and had a baby, She was due for a raise, but they didnt give it to her because she had been out with a baby. While pregnant and working she would get breaks after working for 7 hours straight. Still working there now, still no raise, and when she needs time off for her baby, she is made to feel bad about having to be off. she is very dependable, never late to work, works when others are 1-2 hours late shes late picking up her child. The biggest complaint is she put in her paperwork for vacation and she made plans and now her boss says they lost her paperwork, they dont remember seeing it. I’ve seen so much underhanded, illegal issues with this Wendys it’s a shame. You need to take a look at this Wendys seriously. the good workers get punished and the supervisors are vendictive against them when they get reported. IRRESPONSIBLE AND UNFAIR PRACTICES

I would never- ever recommend this restaurant. the food taste old and reheated in microwave or something.

My son has worked for wendys for 8 month at the Bloomington Utah store he would go in when ever they needed him. He has however been late a few times. So they told him to take 5 days of to think about what he has done. He goes back after 5 days and they fire him!!! What happened to giving a warning first to give the employee a chance to correct the situation??? What annoys me the most is that for the pass 5 days he could of been looking for another job. They have no right to do this and is very unfair to the employee if you are gonna fire someone for being late don’t tell them to wait 5 days thinking that they still have a job. What kind of company works like this it’s disgraceful

I live in the vicinity of your 13090 sw 120 st miami florida wendys store and stopped to eat there on june 4 at 8.40 pm and while eating my meal I observed a very clever new cleaning instrument that looked like a floor broom but was a table top broom instead, being used on as a table top broom by a young man cleaning the table next to me and he went on around the room cleaning ,sweeping other tables with this broom and I then observed that it was not a new and clever table top cleaning instrument but an old fashioned floor broom multitasking as a table top broom and chastised the young man and the supervisor for allowing this practice,while he stopped and she did nothing but act surprised and I told her this was being done in front of her in an empty store. which based on what i observed and how she acted,was a logical byproduct of absent managing supervision.I will soon make the determination as to who is responsible for this lack of supervision:if this shift manager,this store’s manager,Wendys management or the magic broom.

My debit card was taken by a Wendy’s employee working the drive through window on 5-30-14 and he went to Walmart there in “Florida City”, Florida and used my card ! The management was rude & protecting this employee (all 3 managers) they would not give me the “Owners” phone number either ! I solved my own case the employee was arrested and believe this or not is still working at the drive through window taking other customers debit cards ! HE WAS NOT FIRED FOR HIS ACTIONS !!! Walmart camera’s caught him using my card and he admitted to the crime when arrested ! Is this the kind of reputation Wendy’s wants ??? I’m hiring a lawyer because this is a slap in my face that he still has his same job & same position after taking my debit card !!! It’s a damn shame because I love Wendy’s Chili & Frosty’s but won’t be supporting this company moving forward !!! Tim Daly (Lake Wales, Fl.)

My wife works one of the stores in Chesapeake, Va. Her register was short $7 and her manager made her pay the short out of pocket. There was no proof she took anything or if someone else took it or made error with change. There seems to be no breaks after allot times. She she told to pickup food from other stores with no payment for gas. She is 58, works hard and takes verbal abuse on a daily bases.
Would like to hear back quickly or local TV stations will be my next call. This not how a corporation treats employees who work for min to a few cents more.

I think that y’all should out an uncover in employee in some of your stores. Then you will find out how your management and employee team really are. I used to work at the Wendy’s at 5333 Norwood Ave in Jacksonville, Florida. And it was the worst year of my life on a job. The GM Willie Williams keeps confusion and other things going between his managers and crew. He’s disrespectful to his crew and management staff. He allows certain employees to be disrespectful and do as they please. This is just a suggestion from a former employee. I hope you guys take this into consideration.

I worked as a shift manager at the Wendy’s in Chehalis Washington from June 2005 to August 2007. I had learned a lot and enjoyed the experience. In fact the experience encouraged me when I went back to school to go for business management.
I recently went back to Wendy’s to work for the summer before finishing my degree. The general manager was still the same, isreal garcia, and he was happy to have me back. My first night back was the last Monday, May 5th and it was the usual 4 hours of watching training vvideos.
In the week and a half that I was there, yes I quit, in fact I pulled an unprofessional move by walking out in the middle of a shift, but I had good reason:
The crew there would talk badly about one another and the customers. Calling the customers “c***s” over the headsets. Telling eachother to ” suck my d***” over the headsets. Yelling across the kitchen to ” put f***ing meat down” while there are customers in the lobby. Not attending to customers in the lobby because everyone, I mean everyone is having a pow wow in the break room including the managers. During the rush managers seek back to the office to “snap chat” on their phones. Before closing a couple of employees would go outside and smoke weed behind the drive thru sign. In the bagging station I was hit twice by a bag because the manager would fling it behind her to open it. When I would make a comment nicely suggesting that she should look out behind her. And with no apologist I was told that I shouldn’t be standing behind her even though the bagging area was my assigned station. Employees were giving away free food to their family and friends through the drive thru. The general managers ex wife works at the Wendy’s store in the next town over and he is constantly telling the crew how much of a “f***ing b***h” she is. And his kids, who are still teenager still work at that store with him. One of the managers got mad because a sheet of bacon got burnt so she through it on to the grill inches from another employees head. Even though I had experience in that store before I was told and I didn’t want to undermine the managers there. When I told the general manager about what was going on on night shift, I asked him if he would not tell them that I said that, I told him everything in confidence. Later that night the crew got on the head set and we’re going back and forth talking “s***” about whoever “the rat” was on the crew.
When I walked out and called the general manager, I told him his crew was full of bullies and that the store wasn’t like that when I used to work there, he didn’t seem to care.

Thank you for your time.

A thorough investigation needs to be done at the Wendys on Spalding Drive in Norcross Ga. Store#41. The manager, Judy Hernandez, is a racist. On several occasions my teenager was scheduled to work for 5hrs but after working for about an hour Ms. Hernandez would send my daughter home so her fellow Mexican friends and/or step-son can take the shift. She is unprofessional as well as racist. I am disgusted by Wendys choice in management. Ms Hernandez does not have a high school diploma and is clearly not management material. There is evidence that she steals exactly $50 from the register of all new employees and accuses the employee of giving customers incorrect change. She has done it to my daughter and others on their first day of work. I have over 30yrs of management experience and have also worked in the fast food industry as a teenager. Never have I witnessed such poor behavior. I would like to send my friends at Fox news over to this store to get full knowledge of how poorly Wendy’s is being managed. Something has to be done immediately.

I recently visited the Wendy’s in Milford MA. There was an obviously new employee being berated by the manager in front of everyone. The employees and customers. I was so angry and upset, having a teenager myself, watching the way she yelled at everyone around her, even the customers. Her name was Andrea or Anita. In my opinion Wendy’s does NOT want this woman to the face of or represent this awesome company. I’ve trained plenty of employees in my time, and never would I raise my voice. Never would I purposely embarrass anyone in that fashion. When she snapped at a customer I turned and left the restaurant. I will not return until this bully manager is removed. Shame on her for behaving in this way.
I’ll admit I always loved the “Dave’s” commercials, and will buy the coupons to support adoption always. Mostly I never use them before they expire, but I don’t care. I love what Wendy’s does for child adoption. I was a foster mom for many years, so I support anyone who supports children. This manager is the exact opposite of what I’ve always thought of Wendy’s to represent.

My wife and I often purchased from Wendy’s. It is one of our favorite fast food places to eat. I used to especially enjoy the Frosty’s but the last few times I’ve stopped to pick up a frosty I have been sorely disappointed. In particular the vanilla Frosty has changed. The last few times I have purchased it has tasted like frozen ice milk.
In order to get a good vanilla shake I’m having to go somewhere else which mean that I sometimes Buy my burgers at that other place how I am buying a vanilla shake.
Ease change your vanilla Frosty is back to real ice cream so that my wife and I can be regulars once more at Wendy’s

the wendys on 2720 N Reserve St, Missoula Mt. There are employees smoking weed on their breaks in their cars on the property and then again when they get off work. ive even know of some management joining in on it. I have complained as a concerned customers but it seems nothing is being done about it. Two of the employees one name is dean main and the other one goes by JJ are two people I know are smoking weed on the property and nothing is being done about it but I would not want my children at an establishment where I have to worry about them seeing something like that or coming in contact with it so please since the store will not take care of the problem can corporate do something about this issue.

I’ve been going to Wendy’s for years. I like the restaurant, but in the last few weeks I experienced the most disrespectful management, I’ve ever seen. She was not only talking very hostile to her employee’s, but in front of customers. I’ve been going there for several years. Those are some very curious employees. I strongly feel Wendy’s should take a closer look at that site I was a manager for Exxonmobil for 28 years. And I know if corporate would have seen this behavior, you would be extremely embarrassed as I was for those employees

Ive had one of the coworkers physically push me, and I stated my opinion to him that it was wrong he just told me to. Clock out and go home after cussing me out!, ive had another manager at my store telling me another coworker was going to beat my ass at work?? Is that supposed to be professional of a manager to do that?? The coworkers that get away with this are related and friends with the general managers wife…. if I get fired over this and nothing gets done I will have a lawyer on the phone!!!!!

I was in Foley Al. with my clients. One is handicap. We were disappointed to see no parking for the handicap up front. We parked and got out looking for a place to enter with a wheel chair. We had to go around to the back of the store to find a ramp to get on side walk. It was disappointing to find that the handicap are hidden in the back. If I were alone with my someone and needed help I sure would not be able to run inside the store because the entrance being too far away. This made all of us feel that Wendy’s did not care about the handicap or elderly individuals. Then we get inside and I had to move two chairs for my handicap client to be rolled under the table. Later an employee stands right in front of us and yells to someone behind the counter. What are these two chairs doing over here. I spoke up and told her I had a wheel chair and put those chairs to the side. She mumbled that there were other tables closer. We did not feel welcome in that store and even when I asked someone what the store number was refused to give it to me. I got it off the receipt. It is store number 201. We have eaten at Wendy’s a number of times but if this is how the elderly and handicap are going to be treated then they will no longer receive my business and my clients are very disappointed and disgusted with how they were treated they no longer wish to go to Wendy’s.

I, a shift supervisor at one of your Wendy’s restaurant. I enjoy customers appreciation and love giving back. I just wish I was appreciated by the Wendy’s organization. Any sort of recognition is accepted. But, I believe its the store I am at currently that gives a negative vibe to people. I would love to keep growing, but, I am gonna need corporate’s help.

Please advise: My friend, Sharon, went to your website which stated Wendy’s has a few gluten free items; that are available to purchase.

The baked potato ( plain) is great but upon Sharon looking at the margarine it does not appear to be real butter and most margarines have an emulsifier which you will find on Google (other names for gluten).

The tomato sauce used to make the chili soup does appear not to have a gluten or MSG in it, as per a Wendy’s supervisor showed her the ingredients on the canned tomato sauce. But she questions the canned chili beans and needs to know if there is any gluten or MSG as a preservative in the beans?

Now a problem Sharon sees with the chili soup is the location that it sits at. The coca cola products are almost right over it and when the lid is removed and any drink spills it contaminates the whole pot of chili soup. Another problem is seeing crumbs near the lid for any mistake of it entering the pot again contaminates the whole chili soup for the customers who have celiac, lupus, auto immune, irritable bowel syndrome, migraine headaches, colitis, osteoposis, colitis, Crohn’s ( like myself ) and etc.

Even your salads should be made together with clean gloves, and not near any type of gluten foods. As Sharon brings her own Earth Balance margarine and salad dressing (gluten free and MSG free), when she eats there, to prevent from being sick due to having celiac and colitis. I have concerns because I have Crohn’s and am on a gluten free and MSG free diet.

Please respond.

Thank you,
Marva

To Whom it may concern: I am one of your former crew members from your location Centerville HighWay in Snellville Ga. It has been my unfortunate experience upon working there that one of your Managers by the name of Jon Harper has been taking money from Cashier’s register. I personally have fell victim to his tactics on two seperate occasions which on the first he took $ 81.00 when he did a skim and the second time for $100.00. Prior to those times my draw has never and I repeat never have been short. To add insult to injury when he counted my register in front of the public he began to humiliate me by calling me stupid and other names if front of the customers. It was done in such poor taste and I am sure that is not how as a corporation you would like to have Wendy’s represented. I am just requesting not just for my self but for others who work at your location not to be subjected to this offensive behavior if you will investigate his actions. It is very frustrating in this economy to work so hard and have to pay for someone else’s mistakes. So that is me working as a volunteer for Wendy’s for 24 hours because I had to pay all of that money back out of my check. I am sure I am not the only one he has done this to however, I may be the one who is trying to do something about this situation. I would greatly appreciate any and all assistance you can provide to me by rectifying this situation. In Sincere Service former crew member

My sister in law, who has down syndrome, worked at the Wendy’s in Bridgeville, PA. In November 2013 a manager pushed her. An investigation by her advicates was hindered because said manager would not come out to talk. Again in March 2014 same manager pushed her again. She met with Wendy’s corporate people, she told them what happened and showed them how she was pushed. Here 2 weeks later he is still working there and we haven’t heard anything from Wendy’s. It’s a shame she has to quit a job she loved because of a manager.

The location in bonnet lake WA has just lost my business. Apon arriving in the drive thru I was given wrong order. When I brought the bag of food in they acted confused and then proceeded to tell me I didn’t pay for my order and said they wanted a receipt but it was in the bag I gave back. I ended up walking out because in front of the lunch crowd they were making me out to feel like a thief. While in the parking lot I called the store to say what an outrage it all was and I wanted my money back. By then they realized not only did I get the wrong food I was charged incorrectly and too much. They gave me my money back but never in my 34 years has something like this happened in a fast food restaurant. I will never return. The employees are rude and trashy.

The Wendys in Stevens Point WI is awful. My family and I stopped in for a quick bite. The crew was rude, the dinning area was absolutely disgusting and they had this horrible sewage smell in the womans bathroom that flowed into the dinning area. My daughter found a long hair in her sandwich. And my husband said his food was cold and tasted old. We will NEVER go back. It was an awful experience.

It must be the Wendy’s restaurant does not care how I spend my hard earned money. I have gone to the drive up window twice in three weeks. They have not been able to get a $1.50 hamburger order right. And when I sent a email to the district manager about the second time the order was not right. He was not yet answered my email. This is the worst customer service. It is the customer that pays their bills. My little hamburger is important to me and it may not hurt their business. But I DO NOT HAVE TO SPEND MY MONEY THERE.

Just drove thru the Elm Grove Wv location waited 15 minutes received my order the soda upset out of the carrier in my car no big deal things happen. But incompetence in over packing my order into one bag resulted in 23.00 worth of food landing on the ground because of the bag being over packed. Called and told the manager what had happened and he apologized and told me to come back down and he would make it right, I explained that would be to late because my Husband had just a half hour lunch. Just kept repeating come back down I can’t I will never go to this drive thru again. Obviously they aren’t concerned about customer satisfaction or service, my hard earned money will be spent at a different food chain!

A particular Managers at this location, 4755 West Irlo Bronson Memorial Highway in Kissimmee, FL 34746,(407) 390-9632. On Sunday 4/05/2014 my daughter 16 years of age and also a new employee at this location, went to work at 11:30 am and was sent home for the lenght of her pants that was 2 inches of her ankle. My daughter was really upset and blames my hardship situation that she was sent home. Well obviously this manager might not have any kids and if she does, she has never show her kids any type of responsibility. I purchase her none skid, none slip shoes and give her the responsibility to buy the pants of her first pay check mean while to use what she has as uniform for her school to go to work. Reality how can a manager be so unfair, my daughter works behind the counter really and only schedule to work on weekends, the manager could of made arragements for her and keept her behind the counter all day. but thanks alot, Thanks to peolple like your self is that our your young kids now this days make the wrong decisions and treat other people with no respect. I will find out your name and I will post around.you need to be brought back to regular employee cause as a manager you have no skills. and by the way the day before my 16 year old daughter was good enough to stay working a 10.45 hour shift, cause the Wendys restaurant was short staff,

Wondering why the food service industry as a whole does not recognize does not address the fact that Celiac’s cannot digest wheat and wheat by-products without getting in my case (as well as others) extremely ill. I was at a Wendy’s ordered a double no bun and a salad no croutons. (but was given pecans that were dusted with wheat) when I asked if there would be a discount on my food because of the products I can’t eat but are in the cost of the price I pay, the answer was no, sorry. As it always is.
My question is why when it would be so easy to have a button that would take the cost of the bun out of the equation you have me pay for something I don’t get?

Unbelievable!!!
In the 14 yrs that I have been going to the Wendy’s drive through located on 9301 N. Oak Trafficway (816) 420-8200 Store #00002698, I encountered the worst and outrageously foul customer service from the “manager” JOSH (so he claimed) when I called to just let them know that I received the wrong sandwich (but my salad was right). This young kid that claimed he was the “manager” told me that “oh, that’s so f’ing stupid” and hung up on me while calling me a b***h (not once, not twice but THREE times). When I called back the second time, I asked him if he really just said that to me and hung up, his response “we’re really busy and I don’t have time for your stupid f’ing s***” and hung up. I called back and advised him that I was going to file a complaint and he said something like “this is so f’ing stupid. I am sharing this experience because I am still shocked at the audacity and stupidity of this childish immature “manager???” in hopes of bringing awareness to all, treat people with respect. I only called just to let them know that my order was wrong, did not expect this kind of abuse from such an ill mannered and immature child.

Wanting to complement an exemply employee at Wendy’s Palmetto Park, and Judge Winikoff, at Boca Raton, Florida 33428, Hurgo Florvil, the Manager of this Wendy’s, as above, this Manager has been the best manager I have ever known.

As an example, there was a huge backlog of patrons waiting, and they were wanting to leave. The manager noticed this right away, and in a matter of minutes, he singularly cleared this problem, with a smile – the whole time. Since this time, I was in awe. I applaud him and should get some kind of reward. .

Discussed with wendys in hays ks. The management is awful. I’ve been working at this wendys over 6 m onthes and I cannot quit fast enough. One of the shift managers is a disgusting excuse for a manager. She talks about all the employees, she has called them slits and other names. She should not be in a management position because managers should be leaders who show an attitude that represents your company. All she is representing is a nasty two faced attitude. A customer had come up to the counter, where I was working, and repeatedly asked if someone turned in her keys and phone. This manag err instead of helping her customer, proceeds to yell into the headset ” tell that f***ing bitch im looking for her s***. If wendys really cared about their customers this little girl would not be there. Im taking this to the news.

I also used to work for Wendy’s! My issue didn’t come from management though. The trouble was that when I took the job I lived in the American State of Colorado. Now, in between my interview and my first day, the restaurant must have been relocated about 500 miles south as the only language that was spoken by employees was Spanish. I have worked in this type of environment before, however this was the first time that I was sure that remarks where being made about me that I was not entirely privy to since I haven’t mastered the language. The amount of isolationism I felt in 3 hours was greater then any other time I can recall. EVER. Needless to say I will be making the rounds through the internet to make sure they know how trashy it is to work for Wendy’s.

At3:45pm. I just came from the drive thur line at Wendy’s at Baseline and Ellsworth in Mesa,Az. The girl was not extremely pleasant, definitely felt like I was just a number that she was trying get me thru the process. But my main complaint was she gave me my diet coke first ( which is great!!!) This was even before I paid. The problem was I asked for a straw. She said it is in the bag. So I had to wait for some time, we ordered 8 other foods items. Meanwhile I just waiting ( as she was helping other orders ) I feel that when there is a larger order, and when a customer specifically asks for a straw; maybe they should be accommodated. Again I didn’t mind waiting for the food; I really wanted to drink while I was waiting. I asked my son if I could use one of his straws from his lunch bag. He had no problem accomidating me 🙂 I felt like I was a bother to to this girl. Looking forward to going to Arby’s with my husband who works in the local media here.

My second shift was the next day were I witnessed the store manager and her assistant being very rude to another new girl, after she had made a few mistakes they yelled at her and told her not to let it happen again, I was shocked at their rude behavior to someone who was new.

They are always trying to be boss when they are not a boss. They accused me of putting bacon in the sink of dish water. And they took the bacon that was put in the sink and just washed it off and served it to the customersThey need to be wearing gloves and hair nets and they don’t do any of it. They are rude to customers and other employees. And not only that but I have been sick with a fever all day today and they still made me work while being sick.

Ordered a meal at the Wendy’s drive through in ‘Bayers Lake,Nova Scotia,Canada’ this evening at 8:30pm.
Told the young girl at the speaker what I wanted.When she went to tell me the total,the price was double what it should have been (she thought I said 2 means but I only said 1)

I asked her why the price was double,she replied “you ordered 2 meals” I replied “No I ordered 1meal” and then also went to confirm what meal it was that I ordered just to be sure and half way through speaking she cuts me off and says “just drive through” in a super rude voice.Then when I go to pay,she makes no eye contact and SLAMS the window shut after I received my change.
I just want Wendy’s Corp to know that because of that employee working the drive through speaker at that Wendy’s location,Wendy’s will never get any of my hard earned money EVER again.Im sure McDonald’s will be happy to have my business.

As an employee of Wendys I must inform you that any salad that has nuts like pecans or cashews on it is not made or served with nuts anywhere on or near it. Nuts are included with the salad but in a separate package just like the croutons and dressings. I will agree that the Cobb salad was my favorite too. Sad to see it go.

3.) Do you ever test your ice for impurities?
4.) Have any customers ever complained about the ice?

I have never complained about a Wendy’s restaurant before, but I just came home from the Wendy’s on Ross Clark Circle in Dothan, Alabama, and I feel I must express my bad feelings. I sincerely doubt I will be eating at this location anytime soon. I have never before, in a fast food restaurant, been given food that sat under the “heat lamp” until it was as dry an unappetizing as the food I was just given. I understand I came in after a busy lunch time rush, But come on Wendy, serve your customers some fresh food. Please don’t serve a customer something that you would not want yourself.

I have a complaint about the liberty wendys, my daughter who is 17 was just hired about three wks ag, since her first day of working there my daughter would come home after her shift and as parents do I asked how was your day/night. She was very upset said that the staff there and manager are very unprofesianal and that theres no teamwork. being that this was my daughters first job I told her to hang in there. Needless to say today 2/14/14 she had contacted me upset from work manger is disrespectful cursing at her throwing nuggets back in to deep fyer and splashed upon her. other co workers there swearing and because e she was the new kid on the block belittling her blaming her for all mistakes ect. there is a lot more to complain about and iam very upset with this situation something must be done or I will have to take further action . someone from cooperate needs to go in this wendys and see and hear what is going on. my daughter quit and this is why this wendys cannot keep staff always hiring because the treatment a new comer is getting.please feel free to email me back.

I know how you feel. My experience as an employee was terrible. I was burned by the grease by another employee. I was yelled at by three managers over doing my job. It was very busy and im dropping fries and getting orders . This assistant manager who has given me hell the whole time starts yelling saying im moving to slow. Then another manager comes over and tells me I need to get my act together. I said ok and continued doing what I was doing. I guess the other manager got mad and brought in the general manager. He goes on and tries to send me home. I continued my shift and went home. I worked a few more days. Then I called for the new schedule and they had me off for two weeks again. Then they didn’t inform me that they went from our pay cards to paper checks so I went three weeks with no pay. I went in to receive my check abd they said nothing about the schedule. I went in again without my kids to have paperwork filled out to find out I was terminated. But the funny thing is there is no report, letter of termination, and I was told they would send my check. They haven’t sent me my check and seperation notice. The manager who told me I was terminated wasn’t even there the night the three managers were yelling at me. Last time I checked for all that mess im wasn’t worth it. A job that doesn’t give you enough hours, pay, and will work you for the time you start to time you leave isn’t cool. Then it’s bad because I was never clocked out when it was time to. I got off at 8:30 and I have to catch two buses to get home. I have to get on the 8:36 Bus because if I miss that the next one doesn’t come until 9. I would get home at midnight. I have two small children and am a full time student. They just did me real dirty. This is the Wendy’s on Shelby lane in East Point, Georgia

I paid $ 29.77 for 3 triple baconaters with no cheese or mayo , and only ( received 2 double bacon cheeseburgers with mayo) . I was over charged , and I didn’t get the food I ordered. I think I should get a refund at the very least. Gary was the cashier, and joyce was the host. I called the store at 407-370-6702. Gary told us we lied about our order and that my son told him every thing was OK when he left with the food. Is this how you treat your customers? My phone number is 407-855-XXXX; please call me for a solution. I have never been treated this bad by a manager, and he wouldn’t even give me his last name. I will not ever buy food from this store again.

sitting at home craving some fries. went to another fast food, because they had wedege fries. the place was dirty and nasty behind the counter. so I left, went down the street to wendy’s. Ordered large fries, first she looked at me without welcoming expression. Gave me my order an(surprisingly) with a smile and said be careful its hot. long story short; begin to eat fries and they taste of old grease aaaaaaaand looked as wilted. This wendy’s is on Harrisburg Pk, southwest columbus ohio. Had cleaned this place up once but cant keep help.

Dear Wendy’s :
Friday 31 of January I stopped at your restaurant in Titusville, Fla. and bought a single, two hours later I was sick throwing up diarrhea, and a stomach ace like some one punched me there. I am just writing to you to let you know, in case someone else has had the same experience. I am not looking for any thing I just thought You would want to know in case you have received other emails about this , thank you.

I am employed with the Wendy’s located at 1721 Sam Rittenburg Blvd, Charleston SC, 29414; I went to another Wendy’s which is located on Rivers Ave on my day to get something to eat and I will never go back there even for a drink of water. I ordered the Asiago Combo…I was not asked what type of dink or what kind of chicken I wanted even though I told the cashier what I had wanted. Yet she didn’t ring up none of it. I received a home style chicken when I asked for spicy not only that i had 1 piece of bacon on my sandwich. I also ordered a 4-pc nugget kids meal nothing was fresh. im pretty sure the food was sitting under the lights for longer than what they were suppose to. When my sandwich was made over the chicken tasted like it was cook in very old grease and I knew it was because I had grease from the chicken all in the wrapping paper and the grease was just about black. My drinks were strawberry lemonade and it tasted like cold medicine. I was very unsatisfied and I will never go back to that wendy’s located on 4113 Rivers Ave
North Charleston, SC 29405.

Hello everyone, I am from upstate New York. Wendy’s has been one of my favorite fast food restaurant so as McDonald’s. However McDonalds is making me think again to not want to eat there anymore because of lack communication, meals are too dry, always gave me the wrong food n asked specifically what I wanted, so now I am not liking McDonald’s n trying to stay away from there. Maybe it’s probably because people up here sucks at ordering n unhappy working there suddenly takes it on the customers. Hawaii where I moved from was great. Now Wendy’s was one of my fav restaurant I go all the time, but it disappoint me that how the employees at the Watertown New York (Salmon Run Mall) was very rude and showing angry expressions when my husband I were trying to order our meals, now my husband gets dizzy, headaches, and don’t feel good when it’s time for dinner. He is in the military active duty proud to be in the service for our country n this is how we get treated by people, always rude and upset for no reason. There were two employees, one was horrible (black n little old lady n needs to retire an the other lady she is white, was pretty much grumpy n no smiles on there faces) so I was little upset n unhappy how they treated me n my husband. The little old lady wanted to call the security which I haven’t said or done nothing wrong. Anyways if you want Wendy’s Franchise going, you might want to shape up n hire nice employees, I don’t want to end up having my own kids go through with what I went through. They will love Wendy’s one day just like me, but someday they will realize how the employees can be rude n disrespectful to the customers. Good luck Wendy’s.

On monday dec.23 2013at 3;50p.m. Went thru the drive thru. the girl made us wait a few minutes before she got our order 2 frosty shakes chocolate ones. No how are nor thank u we were told to pull up. The was one vechicle ahead of us. After waiting almost eight minutes we inside and guess what they were sitting in the front counter the employee piinted to them . Two shakes 10 minutes Really? Rude very unproffessional. emplyees and not busy. So i would like to know why the black employees were rude is it because we are white? Location Charleston Hwy. Cayce S.C. i have been in the food industry and i would of been terminated if i treated customers like ur employees treated us. Customers r how u make money and keep repeat. customers .I can assure u that i will not be a wendys customer anymore .So mad that i threw my shake away it was on the counter where another lady was laying all over the counter who wants to drink after that lady was breathing over them.

Sunday 12/22/13 walked into Wendy’s at 1:32 p.m. walked out at 1:15 p.m. waiting in line for a take out order. Only one person waiting on people. The drive thru was so backed up you couldn’t get into the lot at times. Manager Jeral doing nothing to provide better customer service. This was the last time I will ever stop at a Wendy’s anywhere!
The management of the store is so unprofessional and poorly run.

Store #00001655 located 153 E. Swedesford Road Exton, PA.

Hello my name is Tom Kotrotsos and I’m sending this email in regards to a possible new Wendy’s location . My family and I own a successful restaurant in Torrance California . My family and I have been in business for over 30 years and are planning to retire. Our location is on a hard corner with a drive thru. We feel this would be a perfect location for a new Wendy’s . For further information please feel free to reply to my email at BurgersXXX@hotmail.com or you can call me at (310) 308-XXXX. Thank you.

What is the norm for breaks when working 8-12 hour shifts. Iwas working from 2-12:30 & only got 1- 30 minute break every day. Yesterday i went in at 2, they made me take a break at 3, then the 9 hours without any break. That isn’t right, & you know that. We are not slaves just normal people wanting to work. People would stay working at Wendys if they got treated right. Working on those floors without any mats is killing my back. I thought there was a law for breaks every few hours & to be mats where you stand. If you want good help that stays, you have to treat the workers like people, not robots. I work at the Bethany. Mo. store.

I’m very disappointed with the Wendy’s in north Olmsted Ohio on Lorain road. I have never had a problem with them until about a month ago. They overcharged me 3 dollars on my large fry so I call the location to see if they could do anything, and I understand that the manager can’t do any refund or anything but when she takes my name and number an says she will call me back, I DO EXPECT A CALL BACK. It has been a month. I go through that drive thru again and another manager asked me I I would like to buy frost coupons for a at and told me word to word “they never expire” and look it here they do expire. I will never be going back to Wendy’s again and I would like to be contacted. Thank you.

I guess when your served raw chicken and are sick for two days, no one at corporate cares. Complained to manager and they made me fill out a form. No dinner in return for the dollars spent, no refund. No mention of anything. No follow up call, nothing. So now days I guess you can pull through a drive thru and order food, pay. Get half way home, bight into raw food ( not just pink in the middle, RAW), turn around go in and return it, only to get no dinner, no refund, nothing. I had to get in my car and go and pay for dinner elsewhere. What a deal… totally blew my mind on customer service! Wow… shocked…
