    Pros

    Regardless of what whataburger you work for you will always meet very funny and entertaining people. The employees are the best part of the job. Its simple and fast paced depending on whether you are at a high volume store or not. I recommend being cross trained on all positions if you are trying to move up to management. Managers are paid very well with bonuses and great benefits.

    Cons

    The smell of whataburger will be forever etched into your memory lol.

    I have been working at Whataburger full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They have very competing wages and benefits. Raise structure is very reasonable Very family oriented

    Cons

    Lots of changes going on. Not a lot of stability in the upper management at the cooperate level. Just a general lack of good communication

    Advice to Management

    Everyone get on the same page before you decide to launch a project before it is ready.

    I have been working at Whataburger part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This place is a great place to start when just getting your feet wet in the rigors of the work place. The the teamwork and workflow skills that you will learn naturally as you work here can help lay a solid foundation for some good solid work habits for the future.

    Cons

    The whole labor percentage thing can be a little strenuous on availability of work hours, and the rush times can get a little hectic and require you to exercise patience to make it through at times.

    Advice to Management

    Always treat your employees with ample respect and they will want to work hard for you.

    Pros

    - Clear opportunity for growth - Training and rotation at all stations - More commitment to customer satisfaction makes for nicer environment

    Cons

    - Fairly obvious when certain people come to work high - Sometimes workers are needlessly stuck on just one or two stations

    Pros

    Friendly co workers and management. Managers are willing to work with your schedule if you are attending school.

    Cons

    Their speed of service isn't that great nor is the accuracy of the orders. Their milk shake machine hardly ever works, the Air Conditioner is always breaking. They honestly just need to rebuild the whole place.

    Advice to Management

    They need to make sure they promote someone who actually knows what they are doing and make sure they can handle the job well.
