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

    Pros

    You can get good discount. My coworkers gave everyone free food and the management did absolutely nothing to stop it. That's good for us but bad management for them. I have to fulfill the 60 min. words so I'm typing this useless crap/.

    Cons

    A lot of work, bad managment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on what's going on in your stores

    I have been working at Burger King full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I got a paid vacation and after 4 years I got two vacations a years.

    Cons

    the pay is not good. I got laughed at by a manager for another company when I told them how much I made. They hourly manager only get 30 hours a week where i work and the crew only get 25 hours. this causes high turn over because it is hard to make a living with that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not be so cheap. Let the employees have 40 hours and they will actually stick around.
