    Pros

    One of the best reasons to work at Burger King is that you not only get to know the fast food side of it, but actually get to experience strategic marketing plans in affect, also be qualified to advance within the company to higher corporate positions.

    Cons

    Some employees or customers won't be easy to get along with, but you can still be a winner! They have many great high paying job opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Its good to give second chances to employees, but still consider the motive of those who seek to come back. If they have burned you bad the first time, usually they are known to repeat the vicious cycle, the second time around, if your employee seems to be more willing to work and help others get their assignments then you have won. But if your employee seems to have occasional mood swings and is often unfriendly to consumers, then its a loose/loose. You loose the time that it takes to replace your employee, you loose minutes, hours, days or maybe even weeks trying to find the perfect candidate to hire to help carry out the normal everyday functions of work that your company has set out for employees.

    Always evaluate the perspective of your employees as well as your consumers!

    Pros

    Lots of learning experiences
    You get to work with a lot of people and have several opportunities to manage them.
    Training program for management is comprehensive

    Cons

    Bad days are really bad; callouts, equipment breaking down and upper management breathing down your neck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward loyal crew members more frequently. It will inspire and motivate hourly employees and also help with turnover.

    You are held to high standards; it's a semi labor intensive job and you must go out of your way to learn everything.

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

    Pros

    Mostly teenagers working
    Efficient team-There's not time for a lot of horsing around as there's usually a steady flow of customers. All employees are expected to keep busy.
    No formal interview-I just gave an application & resume in person
    I liked my hours; I got evening hours and morning on the weekends so I still had time to go out and have a life

    Cons

    Mostly teenagers working
    No formal training-I was never walked through how to do everything, I had to learn how to make food, bag orders etc. as I go
    Tasks are unclear-I was a cashier but also expected to bag orders, make food, clean tables, wipe floors)
    Unclear instructions-There were usually 2 managers working at a time and when I was learning how to do certain tasks, they would give me different instructions making it unclear how to properly do things
    Write ups for small things-5 minutes tardy, eating a fry, etc.
    Salary is minimum wage
    Dirty environment-Any fast food place is going to be greasy, smelly, hot, and loud.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Give proper training to new employees especially cashiers; doesn't have to be formal, at least teach them to properly fill drinks, bag orders, make milkshakes, make fries, etc.; little things to help entire crew out
    -Cut back on arbitrary rules; Employees got written up for very minor things. We had to constantly be busy which was very tiring. I was expected to sweep the floor like 5 times a day even if it was clean, just for the sake of looking like I was doing something
