    Assistant manager

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe people you work with are interesting in their own way and if you work there long enough you get a vacation.

    ConsYou work hard and others get credit for it. No real growth in company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRealize who are real team players and show some type of appreciation. When evaluating one person put it towards that one individual not try and put others down fall on them. Promote when it is due.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Favoritism wins out at Burger King

    Swing Manager (Former Employee) Toledo, OH

    Prosworked around my school schedule

    ConsLow pay, poor benefits, upper management pretends to care, long hours and work most holidays

    Advice to Senior ManagementBennett Management should keep a better eye on the performance of their stores instead of waiting until the last minute to make changes or enforce policy changes.

    For 10+ years it was great ! Then 3G came along...

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThis was a great place to work until the company was bought in 2010 by 3G. It deteriorated quickly after a massive layoff of a lot of very hard working, talented people. If you are young and inexperienced you will get a title.

    ConsLong hours, no offices, no sense of being a part of something bigger. Longevity and experience is not valued.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Very cheap company. High turnover rate. Not good experience for you beginners out there.

    Team Crew Member (Current Employee) Hesperia, CA

    ProsIf your store is busy or you're scheduled specifically for rush hours, your hours will seem much shorter.

    ConsVery stressed GM's usually. This is a high stress job if your place is busy almost all the time. Not worth the pay. Plus, since

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease teach managers how to handle stressful rush hours. Also, I think it would be wise to have 1 or 2 more people in the kitchen.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Fast food is a very stressful environment to work for!

    Cashier (Former Employee)

    ProsManagers are very laid back. If you are hard worker, this job is for you! Given a lot of hours! Last resort job. Can get free food

    ConsThe pay is minimum wage and daly interaction with rude customers, especially in drive-thru. Management is alright but it can be better like giving raises for people who have been working there for a long time or doing a good job. People have been working in my BK have like 7-10 years and NO RAISE! NOT EVEN A PENNY! The GM looks like she only cares for employees when the restaurant is understaffed which happens a lot because new employees (especially the young adults) cant stand the pressure for $8.25 (Illinois minimum wage)! At least the employees who stay get more hours.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake refunds and food spoils a little laid back. At least a little higher pay like .50 to .75 more because of all the stress employees go for

    One of those 'right place, right time' jobs

    Shift Manager (Current Employee) Tampa, FL

    ProsMy store is owned by a franchise whose owners are extremely anal. Their procedures will drive you insane at first, but you'll be thankful for the madness after a while. Not only do their procedures allow you to go above and beyond basic restaurant procedures- therefore giving you an edge over other applicants- they also make work easier.

    ConsVERY limited opportunities. People go years without a raise other than the annual min. wage increase. The only reason I was promoted was because I was in the right place at the right time. I was no where near as experienced as some of the other workers and I certainly didn't have enough training to be a basic cashier, let alone a shift lead. I am thankful for my promotion, but I can't say the same opportunity is available across the board. Also, the promise of a promotion is often used as a bribe to make people stay with the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPretend to care about your employees. Pay them what they're worth and allow them to move on with life when the time comes.

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

    Management can really mess up an experience

    Cashier (Current Employee) Lincoln City, OR

    ProsI like leading and making people smile

    ConsWorking for no respect at little pay

    Advice to Senior Managementstop playing favorites with friends and family, you lose all the quality employees that thought they made a difference ,

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
