    I have been working at Burger King full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Multi-billion dollar company, nothing else please read the cons section for a complete understanding of what I am saying.

    Cons

    Horrible work conditions, extra long hours, morale at an all time low, bonus keeps getting cut, workload increases. Move nowhere fast and executives are clueless as to the way people are treated here. Extremely high turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put in a mole to see what is really happening. Survey all the people who left especially recently. Listen to them. Change the way things are done. There are many good smart people who left because of work conditions. It's embarrassig and a shame that a company like this is run the way it is.

    I worked at Burger King full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    It was great working at BK right out of high school because it gave you responsibility and a paycheck! Depending on the type of customers you have, it can be an OK experience. I think the specific location I was at was very flexible with what hours you worked. You get a free lunch or dinner or lunch and dinner.

    Cons

    You should get paid more than minimum wage for EVERYTHING that you do during your shift. There really aren't any perks, there are no incentives, no organization, if you want to become a team leader you need to kiss up to management because they play favorites. Management sucks. Hard to advance. People make fun of you or look down on you because you work at BK

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't play favorites, pay more money to your hard working employees, become more organized, and make your employees want to show up to work using incentives.

    Pros

    You will get paid for working, not much though.

    Cons

    Endless!
    Poor management
    Poor training
    Unprofessional
    Filthy environment
    Spoken to disrespectful

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Check into the real reason for your high employee turn over and you will uncover how your establishments are kept, from the filth to the completely disrespectful manner in which your customers are treated.
    The reason is not that the work is to challenging, is simple and repetitive work but the manner in which decent people are spoken to and treated runs good workers off.
