    I worked at Burger King part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    It is a good way to get out into the working world and work on customer service skills and cashier experience.

    Cons

    The only thing I had a problem with was I did not have set hours. I never knew when I was going to be home with my daughter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing. The training is great and they never stopped trying to help their employees.

    Pros

    Flexible hours
    CIP/Compensation
    Nice environment (atleast for my store)

    Cons

    Management can be extremely mean.
    Like with any place, customers can be extremely rude

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be so harsh on the cashiers. Most if not any time upper level management came in it was to bash the cashiers.
    They want you to move out orders on the drive-thru with 1-2 minutes, but also want you to be polite. It's hard to be polite and rush people via the window.

    Simple, but dirty.

    I worked at Burger King

    Pros

    Easy, if your willing to do the work. Fun atmosphere. Can be even better with entertaining coworkers and managers. Willing to promote from within.

    Cons

    The grease is still undery fingernails I think... (Three years later) Its sometimes difficult to clean the place up to snuff when others don't care so much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management had a good attitude towards employees. Keep up the positive reinforcement!

    I worked at Burger King full-time

    Pros

    great people who are easy to work with. Years of many lessons learned about industry will help at other jobs. Met a lot of managers who were great to work for and always helping learn.

    Cons

    Its fast food. Terrible customers who expect more than what theyre paying for. Facilities werent always up to standards. A lot of competition so the store was not as busy as it could have been. A lot of employee turnover as well which didnt help.

    I worked at Burger King part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    There's several factors that will affect your experience at Burger King. Every store is going to be different. Obviously you won't get the same experience at every store. I actually didn't have a bad time working for Burger King at all. If you get along with all the crew members and management, then it's not so bad at all, I found it actually enjoyable for the most part.

    Cons

    As far as cons go, working at Burger King is hard work with little pay, especially if your just working part-time like I did. Your on your feet everyday and I developed foot pain over time as a result. I was living pay check to pay check and so were my managers and my other co-workers who were working full time. Another negative aspect that I experienced was that some weeks I was not get enough hours, and it appeared as if my store manager was being a little partial towards other employees. The biggest advice I can give is make friends with your co-workers or at the very least get along with them because you will won't have a good experience at all if you don't. It is mundane work and trying to have good social interactions between your managers and co-workers will be the only highlight of your day there.
