    Pros

    You get a paycheck every two weeks like clockwork. You get free food. They provide shirts and ties.

    Cons

    Unless you have an urban cultural background, this job is pure frustration from beginning to end. If you are from a challenging area of town then go for it. It is easier if you are one of many.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With current low wage scales, you can't fix the staff. I would say that changing the product is the only hope you have. The whopper is an old sandwich and that "reinventing" it by constantly putting different condiments on it is not working. You need a new sandwich. If you bring back in a turkey sandwich your sales would skyrocket.

    I worked at Burger King full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Loved working with my crew and managers. I loved the regular customers that would come in on a daily basis. You really got to know some of them.

    Cons

    No training, they expect a lot of work with no help or proper training. Not enough pay and long hours

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to treat your staff better. I worked there 13 years before I left. The management turnover was awful. They would just throw new managers on with no training or help.

    Gotta Start Somewhere

    I worked at Burger King part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Make money through high school. Experience in a fast-paced diverse work environment. Makes you appreciate your next/real job even more.

    Cons

    Minimum wage, place I worked at didn't give raises (it's not something you really turn into a career builder anyway unless you want to work your way up management.).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The store I worked at was a franchise and seemed somewhat disorganized. I suggests regular schedules for employees rather than finding out at the beginning of each week.

    I worked at Burger King part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I enjoyed the day-to-day activities. I knew what was expected of me before I clocked out, and I got to interact with different types of people every day. My managers were mostly helpful and laid back.

    Cons

    Customer service will always be difficult at some point. Some people are just difficult to work with, and there is no way around that. There are also considerable changes in atmosphere. Although there is always something to do ("if you have time to lean, you have time to clean."), some time periods and days will be much busier than others. Long shifts can be unbearable if you do not time manage well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire lazy people, regardless of time of service. A lazy employee brings down the effectiveness of the group as a whole.

    Pros

    Nice Atmosphere, Good Service, Wonderful Food, Great Employees, and wonderful Management, Very Caring and Helpful Staff. Management has great relationships with Staff and Customers.

    Cons

    Pay is not enough for Daily Work Details, and new Staff need further Training as well as more Teamwork. Motivate and reward good employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Meet with Staff and find Trainers, or Management to Train the new Employees.
