    I worked at Burger King full-time

    Pros

    The crew- If you work with good people you can make friends that last a life time and learn things from people you’ll use forever.
    Advancement- it’s very easy to start working your way up I ways going to be a manager at 19.
    The pay- if you can pick up a shift and work 6 days a week you can make a decent paycheck.

    Cons

    Drive thru time- they are so strict about the drive the thru times to the point it causes extreme stress to everyone there. They don’t understand you’re a human being and can’t keep going as fast as possible with no breaks for 8 hours. There’s no sympathy. No 15 minute breaks, or even 5 minutes to just breathe.
    Stress- with the time aspect, different sandwich builds, constantly changing product and time crunch the job could get very stressfull.
    Understaffed - my specific location was extremely understaffed so we were all over worked at max hours almost everyone working 6 days. No work life balance. Led to a lot of fights and tension.

    Advice to Management

    Relax and have fun. Give people a break and remember it’s physically impossible to go as fast as you can for 8 hours straight doing the same repetitive movement. Give yourself a moment and your employees. Care about their wellbeing and the drive thru times will take care of itself.
