    I worked at Whataburger

    Pros

    An easy environment to grasp. You become a part of a team quickly. In this environment the ability to communicate well and deliver speedy service is appreciated.

    Cons

    Management tended to hold vendettas against their least favorite employees, giving them bathroom duty or other jobs that no one wanted to do.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees equal care and they will prosper. Readily provide training to new employees rather than let them go untrained for weeks.

    Pros

    Flexible hours, co workers help others out for the most part and December holiday off.

    Cons

    Management not willing to get out there and help until the big boss shows up. Unprofessional conduct in work place by management and foul language.

    Advice to Management

    Stop pushing good employees out and keeping the bad and unprofessional. And gove more than a nickel raise, it shows you appreciate our hard work.

    Pros

    Weekly pay, 50% off meals

    Cons

    No breaks for anyone over the age of 18, this includes being on your feet for 9 hours straight or longer. You usually never get off your shift when you are supposed to, you don't get holiday pay, minimal benefits for team members (i.e healthcare etc), certain shifts don't do their daily tasks leaving the other shifts to pick up the slack, team members playing around when they should be at their stations and super poor communication between managers / supervisors.

    Advice to Management

    Incorporate better schedules & breaks for employees instead of working us ragged. Make us feel like a "family" as your training videos state so much and start enforcing members to do their daily tasks so no one else has to pick up the previous shift's stuff.

    Pros

    Opportunity for advancement, bonuses (if you work in a newer store that doesn't require that you call in maintenance because you lose your bonus that way), good training program, 501(k)

    Cons

    10 hour long shifts, being paid hourly in a fashion that includes 10 hours of OT a week which is how they figure out your yearly salary when you discuss it during negotiations, mediocre health insurance, days off are not always consecutive (which could be a selling point if you like that sort of thing)

    Advice to Management

    Shorten the shifts for shift managers and get better health insurance
