    I have been working at Burger King

    Pros

    The flexible schedule was the biggest pro. This was the most convenient while still in school. This is also the type of job where there is always something to keep you busy, never a dull moment.

    Cons

    No benefits until you make assistant manager. They say you should get a review with the potential for a raise every 6 months, but you are lucky to get a yearly review with minimal raises. not enough attention on training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on getting reviews out in a more timely manner. This can be a neutral way to address crew members who may not be meeting standards, and rewarding those meeting expectations. Often crew members are unaware they are not meeting expectations.

    Pros

    Great training program with benefits and 401k

    Cons

    You are expected to do tasks that you have not had hands-on training on yet such as store inventory, schedules, and ordering stock

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Needs to focus on the company menu and train employees in more than one area so that they can be adaptable and move up the ladder if they choose instead of hiring outside the store. Pay could be better for entry-level positions.

    Pros

    3G Capital owns BKC and creates a culture around meritocracy. Talent rises -- you either go up or out. They reward based on your ability to find opportunities for improvement; furthermore, capitalizing on those opportunities.

    Cons

    You work long, hard hours. It's a bit cutthroat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice. It's not that the meritocracy is bad...it's just simply how you motivate.

    I have been working at Burger King part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The people I work with are fun real people, its almost like a family. With respect for all (Management coworkers and customers) it can be a blast. This type of job is trully what you make of it, if you look at it negatively you'll feel negative about it. But if you look at it with a positive outlook you'll enjoy your time working.

    Cons

    Unfortunately the people who do ruin this type of job is about 90%of the rude, ungrateful,ill-educated, Un-mannered customers. The leftover 10% is probably a bad manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    allways support your team.
