    I worked at Burger King full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Plenty of training and support. Long hours and loads of travel as I covered over half of the country. But, they also allowed flexibility in scheduling and let me keep my own travel points.

    Cons

    Bad timing as I was let go during a "right-sizing" post Diageo acquisition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lost a tremendous amount of talented people in the "right-sizing". I can't imagine their long term value outweighed the talent drain.

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

    Pros

    Co-workers were fun. I got to see a lot of faces every day as customers came. I'm a social person so this was also very enjoyable.

    Cons

    I can't think of any. Maybe a few rude customers but overall great experience. Had to clean the bathroom a few times. When refilling the ice machine, it was pretty cold getting all the ice.
