    Pros

    Management doesn't bother you too much
    Good as a first job
    You get one free meal from there everyday
    If you go above and beyond, there is a chance of promotion

    Cons

    Boring
    Policies are slightly strict, but understandable
    It gets busy and a little stressful but nothing you can't handle if you work as a team

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

    Pros

    You get a paycheck every two weeks like clockwork. You get free food. They provide shirts and ties.

    Cons

    Unless you have an urban cultural background, this job is pure frustration from beginning to end. If you are from a challenging area of town then go for it. It is easier if you are one of many.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With current low wage scales, you can't fix the staff. I would say that changing the product is the only hope you have. The whopper is an old sandwich and that "reinventing" it by constantly putting different condiments on it is not working. You need a new sandwich. If you bring back in a turkey sandwich your sales would skyrocket.

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

    Pros

    Loved working with my crew and managers. I loved the regular customers that would come in on a daily basis. You really got to know some of them.

    Cons

    No training, they expect a lot of work with no help or proper training. Not enough pay and long hours

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to treat your staff better. I worked there 13 years before I left. The management turnover was awful. They would just throw new managers on with no training or help.
