Never Again

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Burger King part-time for less than a year

ProsThere were no pro at all.

ConsFood is only discounted for team members and it's fast food. It's not healthy. The management sucks. There may be one or two nice ones, but for the most part the ones I worked with were really mean and dictator-like. If you're a student, forget it. The fact that you want to make it in school is not enough of a reason for management.

Advice to Senior ManagementEmployees may know people in higher positions, like the owners. Don't treat employees like whatever because it can get back to those people.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Assistant manager

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Burger King

ProsThe people and repeat customers made it fun. Decent pay if your a manager. And depending on crew members could be a fun experience.

ConsReverse racism from management. Friends of store manager doing whatever they want including giving out free food. People filing false claims to make a quick buck. I left because I was the only white person there and was being outcast for other people of a different nationalities.

Advice to Senior ManagementLearn to follow up on your stores and their people. Dont just trust the district managers utilize the regionals and also have the president tour these stores. And do it on the down low. Come in as a normal everyday average guy cause then you will see the true experience people are getting.

Former Employee

Assistant Manager (Former Employee)
Plattsburgh, NY (US)

I worked at Burger King full-time for more than 8 years

ProsGet learning experience. I did gain a lot of skills and had to rely on my own abilities to run the restaurant the best I could.

ConsThe pay for what you do at any level of this company is terrible. I felt bad paying my employees what they made a week and felt even worse about what I had for the amount of work and hours I put in.

Advice to Senior ManagementShare the wealth to get more solid applicants and do more for the people running your stores.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
