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

    Pros

    The people were enthusiastic and motivated to work together.

    Cons

    They always need you to clock in whenever you're not regularly scheduled. But then it's also great if you work full time so you can collect overtime wages.

    Advice to Management

    I liked the manager there, had no problems.

    Pros

    Always room to pick up more hours, Discounts on meals, Yearly bonuses

    Cons

    Prepare to be treated like garbage by customers. Short staffing causes a lot of stress.

    Advice to Management

    Staffing a bit more on shifts may be a little expensive, but rehire costs (due to overworked employees) are higher.

    I have been working at Whataburger part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Okay pay
    Pays weekly
    I have to have at least 5 words but I can't think of anything else

    Cons

    Sometimes pay is late? Don't know what's up with that.
    You usually have to wait for your replacement to get there, so you're bound to end up leaving late.
    Poor and inexperienced management. Most of my team leads and a few managers are hardly out of highschool with very little experience.

    But here's the worst thing;
    It's hard to get rid of problematic coworkers. Maybe it depends on the store, but in the two years I've worked for WB, my coworkers and I have had to call HR on at least three different coworkers for inappropriate behavior. Two of them were pedophiles, ACTIVELY hitting on minor coworkers (such as myself), making them uncomfortable by asking them out (despite being 15-20 yrs older) and trying to make advances towards us. Neither of them were fired because no one took the claims seeiously, despite having multiple witnesses. The other is a manager who grabs female coworkers (minors) by the waist, moving them out of his way, making sexist comments, and telling female coworkers they're bound to be sexually assaulted. He still works with us and the GM said we we're full of it when we asked him to do something about it!

    So basically, if you wanna deal with incompetent management, go ahead!

    Advice to Management

    Please for the love of God take claims like these seriously.
