Pros

If you do not work in IT WB is probably a fair to moderate place to work. There where some nice rewards while the company was in Corpus Christi such as tickets to Whataburger field.

Cons

Long hours and high pressure, c-level leadership hired an autocratic despot for one of the director in IS/IT who made my life and others a living hell. Lots of turnover in IT leadership as it is apparently not a great place to work for them either.

Advice to Management

This family owned business has authoritarian, brute force, style of leader that is great to the restaurant staff, but not to "overhead" administrative, IT. I don't think any form of advice would be accepted if given.

    Pros

    If you're passionate about the quick service restaurant industry, then this is a great place to work with one caveat - stay in restaurant operations.

    Cons

    The corporate office has a very different culture than the restaurant operations. This review is from the corporate office perspective. They have worked hard in an attempt to paint a picture of the culture by defining a set of values, guiding principles and a lofty vision statement - Great Company, Great Burger. However, from my experience, it seems their actions and processes do not align with those words. The culture is reminiscent of the Orwell book 1984 - lots of "doublethink", groupthink and leadership by intimidation and/or exercise of power/authority.

    Advice to Management

    If searching for football movie clips to accurately represent the corporate office culture, then show the clip from Remember the Titans that speaks to how "attitude reflects leadership."

    Pros

    Everyone gets along great, work is fast paced, great room for advancement, been here two months and already getting moved up, work your butt off and the managers will notice you! Overall great place to work. My store was rated number 1 in the city!

    Cons

    Rushes can get pretty hectic, you will be left to work alone at times meaning you WILL cook the meat prepare the bread, make the burger, wrap up the burger, plate/bag the burger and send it out. Your expected to do all that in 5 minutes or less.

    Advice to Management

    So far things are really going good
