I have been working at Burger King full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Decent pay, paid vacation and holiday time, still have health benefits.

Cons

No raises for two years, reduced holiday time, changed health plan to one with a high deductibles to even get Rx, penny pinching while paying Stars lots of money to advertise new menu. Selling corporate stores to franchisee means they work you to death to save every penny they can. Myself and six other GM's were forced to work 6 and 7 straight 12 hours days the week before selling our district to Carrol's while they paid us our normal 5 day/50 hour work week pay. New DM's are rude and treat people like property they own instead of people. BKC has no phone numbers to call anyone anymore, and everything including health benefits must done through an email that takes two days or more to get any response.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop trying to make your money at the expense of the people running your stores, we have families and lives outside of your stores. Forcing people to work extra hours and days while threatening people's jobs while making them work 74 to 86 hours in a week is beyond cruel. Great company going in the wrong direction, and when your own HR department says they cannot do anything because these directives come from real high up, that means it's the people running the company. DM's say McDonald's is always hiring, guess what, thinking about submitting my resume to them after I type this!

    The franchise i work for is family grown and owned and they treat you like family and care for you. It is a great customer service industry and i recommend it to anyone

    The hours that sometimes you have to work because people call in can be overwhelming and also a downside would be your working with alot of younger kids who dont care about there job
