    I have been working at Burger King full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    At my store management works with those who attend college, making it easier for them to complete their studies while working

    Cons

    Management often brings in new managers instead of offering promotions to those already within the store

    Advice to Management

    Promote the crew members in store before you decide to bring in new management from other stores. It shows confidence and support to those who have already been at that specific location.

    I worked at Burger King part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working as a closer was the best position as your hours were more likely definite. In addition, less hectic in the sense that the staffing after 10 p.m. was limited as most employers are high school personnel and cannot stay after the lobby closes. If the store has more high school personnel and you are over 18, it is more likely you would work mon. through fri. or sun through thurs. leaving weekends free. Closers usually make more.

    Cons

    As staff is limited, if you do happen to work weekends, depending on store location, it can get really hectic and stressful. If sandwich makers are not alert, orders can get messed up and as a cashier, you will be the point of contact for customer frustration. In the drive thru, time per car is very important, if shift time is not met, manager get written up and so everyone on that shift gets written up as well. Not everyone on your shift cares about the time, some people are slow. Customers are not aware of drive thru time and get upset if you rush them and bk does not allow you to inform them of time either.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more workers that actually care about the job they were hired for, don't just hire people just to hire them. Stress the importance freshness of food and cleanliness, have them work as if they were preparing food for their loved ones and not strangers. Cross train more and pay attention to what position each employer is best as and use that to your advantage to meet shift time.
