    I have been working at Burger King part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Free drinks, half-off food. If you have good coworkers and a decent manager, it'll be nice to talk to someone while you wipe the windows. It's also nice to know the "ins and outs" of the restaurant and know things that most people don't.

    I've sometimes received tips. There are also a lot of customers coming through, so you get to interact with many people. Some of them are even good looking.

    Cons

    It can get dirty. If your managers are mean, that's tough to endure. Also, your coworkers could be jerks. And the customer is always right, even when they're not. There have been many times when I've had to explain to my (angry) mangers that I did everything correctly and that it was the customer's fault. Customers can also be rude and condescending. I bet the environment doesn't do much for your pores either, though I saw no significant difference.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't get mad at a new employee for not knowing something that no one told them.

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

    Pros

    You can get good discount. My coworkers gave everyone free food and the management did absolutely nothing to stop it. That's good for us but bad management for them. I have to fulfill the 60 min. words so I'm typing this useless crap/.

    Cons

    A lot of work, bad managment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on what's going on in your stores

    They are a good company to work for and they usually promote from within the company most of the time.

    Pros

    The manager always knew what she was doing and always knew where to assign a person based off of personality and skills.

    Cons

    They would sometimes not let me leave in times of emergency such as picking up my son from school if he was sick.

    management is very buddy buddy with employees. Some employees didn't clock in and still got paid.

    I have been working at Burger King

    Pros

    - Get lots of discounts
    - To see the everyday work operation, gives you a lot to learn
    - There is always something new, so you get to try the new specials heh!

    Cons

    - massive amount of work, sometimes is a never ending, workflow is very consistant, and when another employee calls off,, be ready for carnage!
    - hours can get downtime crazy
    - pay is cheap for the amount of work that you do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    this really depends on the personality of the person that you have to deal with, I only worked in one of the many stores, but I know that operates almost the same everywhere.
