    Pros

    Fast Paced
    Easy
    Customers are (mostly) nice

    Cons

    Managers don't listen or even give a damn about you

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more forgiving, stuff happens, even to ya'll. Customers are the reason behind 98% of all mistakes.

    Former Employee - Team Member in San Antonio, TX

    I worked at Whataburger full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Most of the time, they had me work as a cashier for the drive-thru or front of house, but it was easy enough to move around and work the grill or assemble sandwiches. The pay is decent, and I highly recommend working the graveyard shift, since you'll have a lot of free time and don't have to be in such a rush (and they pay a little extra).

    Cons

    I only worked at a San Antonio location for a total of six months, and I was only a basic team member, so I never had any trouble. The only con I would mention is having to keep my face clean-shaven -- my manager wouldn't even allow stubble.

    I worked at Whataburger full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Not too many great things about working here. You get 50% off your meal and you don't even have to be working that day to receive it. The hours are flexible. The GM will work with you if you need extra days off a week, just don't expect to be paid for it as they don't offer paid days off unless you're upper management. Pay is great compared to other fast food places. You get a review/raise every 6 months.

    Cons

    Management is a joke. The GM doesn't do anything about his horrible managers. They talk down to everyone, especially new people who have only been there for a day or two. I understand it's fast food, but it still takes some time to learn a position/job, especially if it's your first job or first time in fast food. They don't follow policy and don't get in trouble for it, even if it's brought to the GM's attention but if a regular employee were to not follow policy they would get in trouble. Favoritism is a major issue. Even the GM plays favorites. I worked there for over 5 years and it's only gotten worse. It used to be a great place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire better managers. Train them better. GM needs to open their eyes and pay attention to their store falling apart. Everyone should be disciplined for the same things and not just certain people.

    I worked at Whataburger full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I enjoyed this company because they recognized my potential and I worked my way up from team member to team leader and then shift manager.

    Cons

    Pay starts low, bad moral among team members. No free food for employees only half off one meal per day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think giving employees one free meal per day would be a nice gesture. Team members need more positive reinforcement to feel valued.
