    Former Employee - "orange Shirt" in North Richland Hills, TX

    I worked at Whataburger part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Meet people, customer service is the best thing to do i loved it! And discounts are always nice.

    Cons

    Never really cleaned our dishes like if you touch it you would be extremely grossed out, being the youngest you may find your self being taken advantage of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work with your "orange shirt" guys more we always love to have you help us out honestly, it's makes us feel like you care instead of watching and yelling at us, also please try and work with the people in high school, when I work there i was in high school and i had difficulty juggling my first job and school but it toke almost 3 months for my GM to actually change my schedule so i could keep both because she was on "vacation" let it be known she was on vacation 3 times a month.

    I have been working at Whataburger part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I cannot in good faith give any pros about the branch of the company I work for. I have been treated like dirt.

    Cons

    The pay is crap for starters. I do everything in the store, I can work the front and sometimes have to work the grill and I am treated as if am a second class citizen when working there. I am constantly being asked (implied) "Riley can you do my job and receive minimum wage while we get raises?"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give raises to those deserving of it. The ones who break their backs working for you. Don't treat them like you'd treat the ugly step-child.

    I worked at Whataburger full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you good looking and area manager likes you, you will get it all and get away with anything by upper management

    Cons

    Great company tho, just the area manager not having any people skills and creating hostile work environment makes it impossible to stay for anybody in Jacksonville, even if you trying to make it a career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe some classes on how to treat and talk to people. Apparently love, care and pride some people haven't gotten that message or just wasn't brought up in life that way.

    Pros

    The company has a lot of positive benefits to offer. The growth is there and the reward can be also.

    Cons

    It is a good ole boy system. You don't get recognize for what you do right, just what you do wrong! There is no such thing as team there!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start over with your people. Be honest with them at the hire and just don't lead them on. They will be with you till the end time.

    their pay and benefit profit bonus

    Cons

    no job security high turnover un fair conditions no matter how good you are you are just a number

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They should make some changes in their system. If a person has complain he can reach to the superior to help and under stand that we are human not just a number. I complain about the superior but no answer no body cares. when I work did best for company can be seen on their system.
