    Great entry-level employer

    Pros

    Upward mobility: A lot of their management are getting to retirement age and so there’s a lot of opportunity for promotions. For example, I started as a tech and was promoted to a supervisor role in less than two years. A lot of employers like to tout their potential for upward mobility but White Castle is the only employer I that I have seen that is serious about it. The vast majority of the supervisors/management in WCD were promoted from off the floor.

    Cons

    Work-life balance: This was ultimately a deal breaker for me. Due to increased demand because of COVID-19, their plants have been running just about to every Saturday since March 2020 or at least they were when I left. That may not be the case anymore - last I heard they were in the process of expanding one of their plants to handle the extra demand.
