    At burger king I got an opportunity to meet some very intriguing individuals, who have taught me how to be prepared.

    Cashier (Current Employee) Port Allen, LA

    ProsYou will learn great customer service skills. You will encounter all sorts of people from across the country. Also you have the opportunity to get insurance if you don't have any. The team members are very nice and encouraging. You can receive promotions by completing your guru and also by moving up in each level.

    Consthe only con would be the amount of hours given.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI believe that if someone is willing to work hard, then they should be recommended by staff to receive more hours if needed.

    Good for a first job as a young kid

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsVery flexible shifts, simple tasks, can be an easy going environment. Opportunity for advancement. Offers minimal benefits. Scholarship program is a big boost. Meal discounts.

    ConsSometimes poor management, stressful, fast paced, hot, low pay with pretty much no chance at a raise, dealing with other employees who see the job as a joke, managers who can be not so pleasant. Inefficient procedures and training. High turnover rate. As of recently most hourly employees can only work 29 hours a week

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat employees with respect. A lil respect will go a long way and can make up for the low pay.

    Great company to work for

    Shift Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsWorking with the crew and employees. The general manager is great to work with. The shifts are easy to work into your daily schedule.

    ConsThe pay is not as high as you would expect. Having patience with customers is a must! Getting upstairs management to listen to ideas is difficult.
