VIEW JOBS 11/13/2019 12:00:00 AM 2020-02-11T00:00 Movin' on up… Families come in all shapes and sizes.&nbsp And that includes the Wendy's family - the people you work with as a Wendy's Shift Manager. The stuff you want - like fun people, quality food, and a paycheck - done. Our founder Dave Thomas had three rules for everyone who works here: Do the right thing. Treat people with respect. Make food better than they'd expect from a fast food place. No doubt you do the first two already. We can teach you the third! Sound good? Keep reading. Making things happen is just one of your talents: * If a Wendy's restaurant was a person, it'd be you: fun, fast, friendly and never out of bacon. * Whatever comes up with a customer - good or bad - you handle it like a boss ('cuz you wanna be a boss someday soon). * You get how things work here, and make sure new team members know it, too. * You make sure food safety standards and procedures are on point. What you bring to the table: * At least one year of restaurant work experience. * High school diploma or GED. (Some college or military experience? Tell us that, too.) * You've already led, managed and organized a team in a fast-paced environment. * Mad skills in problem solving, customer service and decision making. * Giving and taking direction like a pro. * Flexible work availability. &nbsp You must be willing and able to: * Travel to other Wendy's locations (restaurants, area office, etc.) as needed. * Stand and move for most - if not all - of your shift. * Lift up to 25-50 lbs. now and then. * Handle weather-related moments like rain at the drive-thru, taking trash out in the summer, etc. * Wear a headset, use other restaurant equipment such as a register or grill, and follow brand standards and guidelines. * For more information on specific equipment or job requirements, please see the job description or talk to the hiring manager. &nbsp We get it. We get you. &nbsp Our food isn't one size fits all and our job opportunities aren't either. &nbsp We are a proud equal opportunity employer - that means all races, religions, nationalities, genders and the LGBTQ+ community are welcome. We provide reasonable accommodations to enable people with disabilities to perform the essential functions of their jobs. Wendy's Bloomingdale IL
