    I worked at Burger King full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You'll learn a lot. Pay is good and Bonus % is high. You get exposure to a world wide company with big recognition on your resume.

    Cons

    You learn a lot because you are performing the job of 3-4 people. The company's motto is "Do more with less". You need to be willing to work LONG hours. If you value work/life balance this is not the place for you. You will also be looked over for promotion is you are not a management trainee. If you're in your 30s and not in management you'll never make it, move on. Read articles about 3G and RBI, it's all in print.

    Advice to Management

    Don't dangle a carrot in front of employees when you don't intend to do anything but suck the life out of them.

    I worked at Burger King full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    As long as you do not have any dreams or hopes for advancement you have steady work earning minimum wage. The biggest pro is the bk in my town is now owned by a franchise GPS Hospitality. They do care about the individual and not only appreciate but reward hard work and loyalty.

    Cons

    It doesn't matter how punctual you are or how hard you work. In corporate opinion you do not matter unless you are wearing a manager or shift manager shirt. Anything below management is not rewarded or appreciated. No matter how loyal or hard working you may be you are as unimportant as the lazy teen who calls out twice a week and doesn't do his job. i worked there 6 years. Burger king corporation does NOT take care of its own.

    Advice to Management

    hard work should be REWARDED, not the title

    Pros

    Great experience if you love multitasking.

    Cons

    Terrible pay to spend your entire life working. Expect people to constantly quit or just not show up on you. This is the food industry at minimum wage so I guess what do you expect?

    Pros

    There's a pretty good employee discount on food and free drinks. it was easy to become friends with regulars and the coworkers could be fun

    Cons

    creepy old guys hitting on you, management literally did not care at all about their employees. you go home smelling like fries every day

    Advice to Management

    actually give a single care about your employees and not just your revenue
