    Pros

    Flexible. Whataburger is corporate owned so you can always go to upper management if you need to. The moral of whataburger is everyone is a team and works together. They say great job team alot. Good first job.

    Cons

    They dont train you. They leave you at multiple stations alone once you are trained. They pick favorites. Some people get away with the uninmaginable. Can be overwelming and some managers cant handle the pressure.

    Advice to Management

    Pick better managers and if there are still corrupt ones that should have been fired already than do so.

    Pros

    Get paid weekly! Free drinks all day, free coffee in the mornings. They start out new employees at $10 an hour, which is higher than other places. Being a cashier there wasn't bad.

    Cons

    You often times get stuck doing the same task everyday. This could be washing dishes, fry station, etc. Also they often times ask you to stay late. While this does mean you get more money, it also can throw off your schedule. Working at Whataburger heavily depends on who the fellow employees are. Some employees are very nice, others are hostile and uncooperative. Also depending on your shift, you may have to either get up early or stay up all night.

    Advice to Management

    Train employees in a variety of tasks early on. Don't just stick someone at dishwashing or fry station.
