    Pros

    Easy job.
    If you have a good manager, they can help you with your schedule.

    Cons

    Low pay. Minimum change of promotion. They don't tell you about benefits. Short breaks. My manager told me multiple times to clock out for break and return to work. When I didn't, she would decrease my days on the schedule.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have weekly team meetings!
    Show that you care about your employees.

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

    Pros

    It's a fun place to work most of the time. The team members become your friends and are like family to you. Just like any other retail job you will get used to certain customers on a regular basis and it's a good feeling to know what tey want, have it ready the way they like it and put a smile on their face. It's a;so a great place because they usually can and will work around your schedule. This was the only place willing to hire me when I explained I would need every Friday and Saturday off for several months in order to attend my teenagers football games and band competitions.

    Cons

    People have a preconception about fast food employees. Management in particular does not get paid as well as they should. I have worked in many different industries and fast food managers have to do a large amount of back of house work. In a manufacturing job there are four different dept.s handling what one manager does. They are responsible for production, scheduling, purchasing, human resources at store level and customer service.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There should be a better pay scale for top employees and please recognize what your store managers and assistants are responsible for on a daily basis and pay accordingly.

    Pros

    There are opportunities if you're motivated to do better. Good co-workers always make the environment better along with good managers. Also there are decent perks and the company is on a great upswing

    Cons

    The variety of customers can be challenging for some. Also standing on your feet for extended periods. The schedule can also cause problems but it depends heavily on you're availability.

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

    Pros

    it was a job, made okay money, not the best type of work but could be worse. manager wasn't a jerk but wasn't my best friend either. you are expected to show up on time and do your job.

    Cons

    you are a fast food employee, would suck anywhere. you have to bend over backwards for angry customers and always act happy to help. you are providing a service.

    Pros

    The customers were the only good point

    Cons

    The shift managers made it hard to work there

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    you need to have 1 shift manager on each shift. I had up to 4 different ones at one time and never knew who to listen to. They all said to do different things. Very confusing.
