    I worked at Whataburger part-time

    Pros

    Clear procedures and good training program. I wish more restaurants would do it like that. Decent pay (not amazing), some opportunity for growth and benefits.

    Cons

    Like all restaurant work, it can be quite physically grueling. Also, it is mostly a job for kids. So if you're an adult, expect to be babysitting.

    not always fair depending on upper management that does not have a clue on the big picture when they are not acclimated to the business or the company because they were brought in from the outside

    make sure upper management is aware of things going on in the stores
