    Pros

    Opportunities inside the company. They train you on everything you want to lear inside the company. Most co workers are friendly.

    Cons

    You are under pressure all the time. Specially on rush hours. If you are not fast enough you will hear it from the senior management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better pay.

    I worked at Burger King full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    If you're willing to ignore office decorum and work unbelievably long hours you can advance very quickly with little or no real experience. Its a great place for new college grads to work so they can learn how to avoid companies like this for the remainder of their career.

    Cons

    Everyone is treated as a commodity and BK IS your life. There is no care or concern for your job satisfaction as long as you are willing to do whatever you're told to do. Almost every timeline is close to impossible to meet and quantity of work is far more important than quality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to value employees and appreciate real contributions to the business.

    I worked at Burger King part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    There's several factors that will affect your experience at Burger King. Every store is going to be different. Obviously you won't get the same experience at every store. I actually didn't have a bad time working for Burger King at all. If you get along with all the crew members and management, then it's not so bad at all, I found it actually enjoyable for the most part.

    Cons

    As far as cons go, working at Burger King is hard work with little pay, especially if your just working part-time like I did. Your on your feet everyday and I developed foot pain over time as a result. I was living pay check to pay check and so were my managers and my other co-workers who were working full time. Another negative aspect that I experienced was that some weeks I was not get enough hours, and it appeared as if my store manager was being a little partial towards other employees. The biggest advice I can give is make friends with your co-workers or at the very least get along with them because you will won't have a good experience at all if you don't. It is mundane work and trying to have good social interactions between your managers and co-workers will be the only highlight of your day there.

    Pros

    Great training. Consistent General Manager. Holds crew accountable. Good advancement opportunities.

    Cons

    Not compensated enough. More is expected from you than what you actually get paid for. Random inspections, but they need to understand that not everyday goes perfect. some of the things that are expected are pointless. As long as you are serving hot, fresh, safe food in a friendly matter while in a clean environment, then that's all that should matter. Not this is your GURU at least xx% complete and are your scorecards filled out. Focus on the important stuff...the customer.
