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

    Pros

    Management doesn't bother you too much
    Good as a first job
    You get one free meal from there everyday
    If you go above and beyond, there is a chance of promotion

    Cons

    Boring
    Policies are slightly strict, but understandable
    It gets busy and a little stressful but nothing you can't handle if you work as a team

    I worked at Burger King

    Pros

    The best reason is money, but it is a decent job, and I was with great people

    Cons

    Having to work, no really.... having to slogan of 'have it your way' when they tell you when you are allowed to eat breakfast. Getting fired for stealing food when you have until midnight to pay if you are not me...... and it was food that should have been waste.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change your slogan, or allow people to do as they see fit aka have it there way lol
