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

    Pros

    A salary during desperate times.
    If you are Brazilian you will succeed here.

    Cons

    First things first, everything they tell you during the interview process is a lie. Everyone is completely expendable from the top down and the company functions like a bunch of rats in a cage. "Rapid growth opportunities" is solely the function of consistent 'mass layoffs' and resignations of the top people. The corporate employment model has become the same model used in the restaurants (underpay, over-work, non specialized skills, create monotonous & meaningless tasks, etc) .
    The Management Trainee program is where the majority of new hires comes from. Y'all just beware and always keep your resume up-to-date. They will treat you mildly better than everyone else, but the program works much like a cult where they use group pressures and brainwashing to simultaneously make you believe you are there to be major contributors to the company while at the same time The threat of firing will always loom and you will be pitted against each other. If you are looking for an edgy collaborative environment , this is not it.
    Absolutely everything is about the bottom line. Office supplies are no longer provided, everyone must bring from home.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go home and spend time with your families and kids, it's not worth it. You may be higher ranking, but your head is still on the chopping block just like everyone else.

    I worked at Burger King

    Pros

    From my experience the work hours received is based on the thoroughness and efficiently of the worker. The job consisted of routine work with no unexpected surprises. An employee meal is offered.

    Cons

    This job as a career starting from a team member can be a long process. Even with all the skills and knowledge needed to advance it may take months for a position to become available, otherwise relocation is necessary.
