    I worked at Whataburger full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great place to work as long as put your head down and listen like robot the moment give your opinion some one higher than you get credit

    Cons

    24 hours stand by but you get pay for it it's really not challenge. Real challenge is don't know how to kiss up your immediate supervisor even you do right by policy you be terminated in this modern age you think that slavery is over but not in Whataburger

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your hourly worker manager and general manager they are the one running your restaurant NOT AREA MANAGER OR DIRECTOR OF OPERATOR even they have reported to HR nothing been happen

    Pros

    Pays ok. Has good management.

    Cons

    Only half off meals (for you and one other person though) have to work your butt off every day. Loads of company procedures you have to know to do perfectly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more lax on your procedures, I don't think it will matter if the meat finishes cooking bottom down.

    Pros

    Monthly bonus dependent on previous quarter performance, 401k, health (medical, dental, vision, AD&D) insurance, profit sharing, 50% employee discount (applies to any location if management and above), flexible hours due to being open 24-hours, overtime almost guaranteed depending on location, high performance standards, travel opportunities, growth opportunities

    Cons

    Not very flexible with hours, but they make a great attempt at accommodation as long as it doesn't hurt the unit

    I worked at Whataburger part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    It was a great start as a first job. Learned a variety of jobs from cashier, to cook, to drive-thru. Gained a whole lot of experience with customer service. The other employees were definitely a great team. They were all very helpful in teaching and training me to do everything and calmed my nerves very much. I met great friends whom I still hang with today. That Whataburger definitely created many memories and gave me great laughs

    Cons

    Of course you'll come across the occasional "I'd like to speak to the manager MLAH" kind of people but it's a matter of not losing patience with them and being cooperative as possible everything will be fine. The managers were nice and were great about teenage humor considering the evenings were pretty much only teenagers working. As long as none of it got out of hand they were ok with us. However, the general manager definitely would get in his moods. He'll be kind and greet you. But if one little detail was off he'd turn into a sasquatch....I'm exaggerating a little, yes. He just really wanted everything to be on the right track and would freak out a little if it wasn't but overall he was an ok guy

    I have been working at Whataburger

    Pros

    All of the white collar perks: they pay for more than half of medical insurance costs they match 401k and managers and above get monthly bonuses.

    Cons

    They "require" managers and above to work a 50hr work week. If you are on salary they record your pay rate as if you are working a 40hr work week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more in wages up front because it takes forever to get a raise.

    Pros

    one of the Pros of working for this company is the weekly pay and flexible hours.

    Cons

    one con i can think of from the top of my head is that they really dont like giving their workers the weekend off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to upper management: Bring in better HR workers and be considerate of the needs of others
