Wendy’s– Late Night bites, juicy burgers, chili and a biggie fry, No better way to spend your summer time day. Wendy’s offers one the largest employee benefits program that I have come across. To name just a few of the many benefits offered, Comprehensive medical benefits for the employee and the whole family, adoption assistance, 401K with company match, relocation expenses and more.

Retail Tourist Stores– I was lucky enough to reside in a tourist area. While I lived on the outskirts, I was close enough to commute back and forth with ease each day. Being in this environment, I was able to learn excellent customer service skills, troubleshooting daily concerns, planning and establishing opening responsibilities and more. While the majority of these positions do not offer benefits, there are many places that encourage and excel at offering additional responsibilities and growth opportunities.
