    Pros

    Great company to work for if you are a self-starter, are looking for a lot of responsibility right away, and enjoy creating your own journey.

    Cons

    Not a great place for processes -very little corporate learning in place. Most things are learned on the fly.

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

    Pros

    I got to meet some nice people while working there, after while you get your usuals and I had a elderly lady give me a hundred dollar bill for Christmas 2012. It was so sweet it made me tear up when she gave it to me.

    Cons

    Poor benefits if you're not working 40+ hours a week, and they'll work you up to 35-39 hours per wk just so they don't have to file you as full time.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with some respect, if it wasn't for us working y'all would be having to do our jobs and y'all act like y'all's current job is so exhausting

    I worked at Burger King

    Pros

    Gained a lot of experience, improved my communication, and learned to multitask more.

    Cons

    Very low pay for the work being done, i did drive thru, kitchen, and front counter, worked doubles, went home exhausted and smelling like dishes and fried stuff and was even told I'm one of their best employees but only made minimum wage. I worked there for 5 months.
