wrong termination

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Glendale, CA

I worked at Burger King full-time for more than 10 years

ProsMeet some really nice people. Including customers and fellow crew members. It was a job.

ConsVery slow growth, forever to get a raise, no positive feedback, C.A.R.E is a joke.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't just say you C.A.R.E. Show it. We all know that the customer is what makes the business. But don't forget about the little people that make the food and take the orders of the customers to keep them coming back!!!!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Job is a job

Crew Member (Former Employee)
Parma, OH

I worked at Burger King part-time for more than a year

ProsIf you are a people person and like a fast pace environment then this is a good place to work.

ConsAs an older employee, you have to deal with the younger generation of drama and attention grabbers. There is a lot of favoritism, talking behind each others backs, and rules and policies are not enforced uniformly.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep your ears and eyes open to what goes on all around the store. Don't allow the drama kings and queens to run the establishment, only causes chaos.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Cookie cutter corporate model

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Burger King full-time for less than a year

ProsIts attempting to reinvent itself.

ConsSlow. Bureaucratic. If you are at the bottom you will feel like you are at the bottom. The work felt meaningless, routine, I never felt like I was contributing to something good, just that I was maintaining a massive machine. They let go of a tremendous amount of people to outsource, which debilitated morale. They attempted to drill in their 5 'inspiring' principles but were not necessarily acting in accordance.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

The workes and managers were rude and lazy

Team Member (Current Employee)
Richland, MS

I have been working at Burger King full-time for less than a year

ProsEasy to get hired and good hours. Managers worked around my schedule. %50 discount

ConsSlaved you for 8 hours at minimum wage. Cleaning bathrooms, working registers, cleaning lobby, cleaning windows, fixing orders, taking orders... they hire you for one position but you end up doing them all in one.

Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your workers with a little more respect. you wouldnt have a store if it wasn't for the employees.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Former Employee

Assistant Manager (Former Employee)
Plattsburgh, NY

I worked at Burger King full-time for more than 8 years

ProsGet learning experience. I did gain a lot of skills and had to rely on my own abilities to run the restaurant the best I could.

ConsThe pay for what you do at any level of this company is terrible. I felt bad paying my employees what they made a week and felt even worse about what I had for the amount of work and hours I put in.

Advice to Senior ManagementShare the wealth to get more solid applicants and do more for the people running your stores.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Fast food is fast food but I hated the management at Burger King.

Cashier (Former Employee)
Chula Vista, CA

I worked at Burger King part-time for more than a year

ProsIt was the easiest job on earth. Good hours. They provide you with a food handlers license.

ConsSuper racist and unethical. Played favorites, no chances to move up. Unsafe in environment.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou need to work on you're human skills

– I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
