    I have been working at Burger King

    Pros

    The flexible schedule was the biggest pro. This was the most convenient while still in school. This is also the type of job where there is always something to keep you busy, never a dull moment.

    Cons

    No benefits until you make assistant manager. They say you should get a review with the potential for a raise every 6 months, but you are lucky to get a yearly review with minimal raises. not enough attention on training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on getting reviews out in a more timely manner. This can be a neutral way to address crew members who may not be meeting standards, and rewarding those meeting expectations. Often crew members are unaware they are not meeting expectations.

    A decent job if you are working part time through college.

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

    Pros

    You can work as many hours as you want up to 40. Co workers are awesome! There is never a dull moment with the customers that come through!

    Cons

    You work a lot and only make minimum weeks. A lot of times I would work 39 hours a week and my pay checks were so small.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show respect for your team members. Without them you would not be making the money you do. Customer service is key and the team members put in a lot of work and feel very unappreciated
