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

    Pros

    There's several factors that will affect your experience at Burger King. Every store is going to be different. Obviously you won't get the same experience at every store. I actually didn't have a bad time working for Burger King at all. If you get along with all the crew members and management, then it's not so bad at all, I found it actually enjoyable for the most part.

    Cons

    As far as cons go, working at Burger King is hard work with little pay, especially if your just working part-time like I did. Your on your feet everyday and I developed foot pain over time as a result. I was living pay check to pay check and so were my managers and my other co-workers who were working full time. Another negative aspect that I experienced was that some weeks I was not get enough hours, and it appeared as if my store manager was being a little partial towards other employees. The biggest advice I can give is make friends with your co-workers or at the very least get along with them because you will won't have a good experience at all if you don't. It is mundane work and trying to have good social interactions between your managers and co-workers will be the only highlight of your day there.

    I worked at Burger King

    Pros

    they let you eat the food and its an overall very relaxed work environment. breaks are frequent and they treat all employees well

    Cons

    no room for upward growth, management is a bit lazy, and people tend to slack off towards the end of the shifts because they know they can get away with it

    I have been working at Burger King full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great training. Consistent General Manager. Holds crew accountable. Good advancement opportunities.

    Cons

    Not compensated enough. More is expected from you than what you actually get paid for. Random inspections, but they need to understand that not everyday goes perfect. some of the things that are expected are pointless. As long as you are serving hot, fresh, safe food in a friendly matter while in a clean environment, then that's all that should matter. Not this is your GURU at least xx% complete and are your scorecards filled out. Focus on the important stuff...the customer.

    Pros

    This work place Is very fast pace especially after 7pm if you can't do multiple things without getting mixed up I wouldn't recommend this job.

    Nothing much, just keep watch on how many people you send home you could damage the business
