    Pros

    The best reason to work at Burger King is that you will have easily accessible entrance into the restaurant industry. There are many skills that a person can learn here, but that depends on the attitude. Like any job, you will go as far as you limit yourself. So... Fries for life or management?
    Free food for managers is nice.
    Pay is reasonable.

    Cons

    Many things depend on the franchise that owns the particular restaurant. All are not the same. So if you are a crew member, then your only option might be to stick where you are. But if you want to move up the ladder, get ready to move out and move ahead.
    Throwing away food that has "expired"...so sad to waste.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer better training for up-and-coming managers and/or programs for crew members who want to step up into a managerial role.

    Pros

    A lot of the customers come back to eat. The crew is good to work with and respect me.

    Cons

    Making drive thru times. The hours are long and there up and down. Like one minute your closing and then your opening.

    Pros

    Half off the food. Reasonable hours. Great company. The co-workers are amazing to work with. All in all its a good company.

    Cons

    The expedite time is a little hard to match or to get close to required goal. Otherwise it's okay to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe some more understanding.

    Pros

    Completely loved my job, the company culture, and the belief system. I had an amazing time working there. Hated minimum wage but I was there for 4 months and did receive a raise.

    Cons

    Particular managers, like anywhere, were a little tough to get a long with at first; but it was easily rectified

    I worked at Burger King

    Pros

    Burger King workers are,so sweet, they're just like family to me. sometimes I'd work overtime just to spend more time there. I loved it!!

    Cons

    The boss expects a lot of you, she wants you to focus on the job and get it done right. But this is a plus for me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up!!

    My boss was the best

    I worked at Burger King

    Pros

    My General Manager of the Burger King I worked at was the best. She is still, to this day, my best friend, although she is 30 years older than me. The best thing about working here is meeting people. But then again, depending on the type of person you are, that might not be something you are interested in. Half off food, off or on duty, sometimes free food if there was something left over or you worked all day.

    Cons

    Low pay. I made $7.25 for two years up until I turned 18, then I made $7.45. Raises are based off whether your store makes it's quarterly goals, not whether you are a good employee or not. My great potential was recognized by all, but was not given a raise unless goals were met. When we finally did reach our goal, I was told I would be recieving at 10CENT raise, and I only recieved a 5CENT raise.

    Pros

    Working at BK can be fun with fun customers and sometimes the time goes by very fast because of the many things you have to do.

    Cons

    Too many job titles at the time, standing on feet for long periods of time, drama, pimples on face

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Chose your managers wisely. The store manager is a key player and will set the atmosphere of the store so be wise
