I think this so-called manager was talking about himself/herself.




Wendy's manager reportedly suspended after claiming local area has 'no talent pool' to hire from: 'Most are recovering addicts'

This wasn’t the response a frustrated customer was likely expecting.

When a Massachusetts man recently complained in an email to Wendy’s about a bad experience at the Wareham location, he received a strange response. The district manager allegedly replied that the town had “little to no talent pool” to hire from because many people in the area were "recovering addicts."

Customer Matthew Rose has since posted an image of the email exchange on Facebook.

“My name is Keith and I’m the DM for the Wendy’s in Wareham. I apologize for your experiences at this location. Not an excuse but the town of Wareham has little to no talent pool to hire from. This is an ongoing issue in that area," the reply note read.......................

I try not complain on here that much but this is ridiculous. I have recently made a formal complaint about our local Wendy's after numerous problems with that location and here is the DMs response.
It seems the DM has very little appreciation for our town or the people in it.

UPDATE:
So I just spoke with a Coley O'Brien who is the Chief People Officer for Wendy's. The conversation was definately productive. I honestly believe that as a company they are definately sorry for the actions of the DM. He stated that the DM is suspended pending an internal investigation. He seemed to agree that his views on the community could have had an affect on the condition and operation of that store. He also told me that they have team members and leaders throughout the company who have "overcome hardships" in there lives and are valued members of there brand. At this point I told him I look forward to seeing how they continue and show improvement within our community. He is also reaching out to the town admistrator to further help in changing the public's view of the company.

1. Gee, you'd think the best and the brightest

Would be lining up to be a wage slave at Wendy's. But no. Everybody in that area, is apparently too selfish. Go figure.

4. Wendy's supports the current pResindent's reelection bid


So, don't help them reelection. Because apparently their tax cuts rule supreme. Especially when you pay slave wages to the people who make you $,$$$,$$$,$$$.
