    I worked at Burger King part-time

    Pros

    You get to improve your customer service skills. I also made many new friends working here. It is also fast-paced, if you like that sort of thing.

    Cons

    Sometimes the customers can be rude, but that's everywhere, right? It can be tedious work.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe just find a better way to organize your staff and prioritize better! It could be chaos at times during lunch rush.

    I worked at Burger King full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I loved that they were able to put me on a set schedule and I was always doing the drive thru. I knew when I woke up what time I needed to be at work and what I was going to be doing when I got there.

    Cons

    Some customers would get mad and be aggressive if their order wasn't made just right. Sometimes drinks or food would be thrown on us. Didn't get paid as much as we deserved.

    Advice to Management

    Try to have a set schedule for everyone and they would be more apt to showing up. Keep up the good work!!!

    I worked at Burger King full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great employees, fun people, younger crowd, busy in the spring and the summer month specially during lunch and dinner. Would recommend.

    Cons

    The only con I can really think of is that it dose get so slow during the off months that its super boring, but will usually let a couple people leave early if too slow.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is to update some of the appliances and clean up the back a little more often.
