    Pros

    They work extremely well with school schedules as well as give as many hours as you desire to work. The job is simple and rewarding.

    Cons

    Cleaning is a little messy and you are subject to work one graveyard shift per week due to the 24 hour store hours.

    Advice to Management

    I advice management to be more strict on what each person has to do during their shift as well as restock everything they have to restock.

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

    Pros

    Its very fast paced, no down time, flexible full and part time hours, you can move up the chain of command if you wanted to, its fun overall great experience.

    Cons

    The customers at the store i was working at were very rude, some of my team members were also, its was a place that needed a whole new team and when i came in it was just being put together. It was a lot of personalities on the team that just didnt mix.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to always keep your stores together, if the customers feel like they're coming to eat at a restaurant it should because clean and organized. Just make sure everyone on your team is for your team.

    Discounts. Pay is good and over minimum wage. Flexible hours. It is fast food, working there is like working with family. Managers are nice overall. Will interview anyone who puts in an application. No job experience needed.

    Having to deal with customers. Have to learn things on your own because they don't show you how to. They make you do videos about what you're suppose to do it but they don't really help.
