    Pros

    like it because, i started off just as a crew member. and with the crew members, and manangers I met, they tought me alot and with that, ii have went my way up the ladder as now i am going in training to become a shift mananger. At first, i was not good with money or peolpe skills, i sucked at both, i was fresh out of high school, and once i started my job as a crew member. Burger king changed me and I became a new person, and its been three years, and I am a now an important part of the burger king company in my store, and i am well known and well respected in my career path. I want to follow my fellow managers and get into thier shoes. I am proud of how far I've have gotten with burger king. my social skills and money skills hav eimporeved alotl. burger king defently changed mylife and im glad they did. :)

    Cons

    there are a few down pats, but every job has that.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    1. I make about $12 an hour with commision, and i have only been owrking 3 months.
    2. Scheduling is very flexible.
    3. I am the only white person working at my location. This has given me much more tolerance for othe races, and has also taught me a great deal of spanish. I can speak to the Hispanic people with ease.
    4. Managers are great people and are really down to earth. They don't try to be politically corect all the time.
    5. The commission system really pushes me to work hard. Some days i can make up to 50-60 dollars in commison while working 9-10 hours.
    6. This job has taught me a vast amount of skills that can carry over into future employment.
    7. being a senior in high schoo, I have noticed a considerable increase in my grades. I can attribute this to my job. Working at BK has made me more organized, focused and ambitious in my schoolwork.

    Cons

    1. As i am the only white person working at my location with the majority speaking Spanish as a first language, there is a substantial language barrier between myself and my coworkers.
    2. Sometimes I have to work 10 hours + a day. This is not necessarily a con because working long hours can be expected at most jobs. This also just means I am making more money and getting valuable work experience.

    Pros

    Extremely flexible working around your schedule
    The job is what you put into it. You can advance within the store as long as you work hard

    Cons

    Sometimes they don't hire the most driven people (some younger employees), but it's understandable.
    The pay isn't great, but hey it's Burger King
