food handler (Former Employee) – London, ON – 16 October 2016
Good job if your a full time student. Flexible hours and good crew. The operaturnities are there if you're eager. I learned everything I could learn about Burger King and I did my responsibilities and that's why I was given operatunities to move up.
potential to move up in the company.
you may be asked to work more or less then your scheduled shift.
Crew Member (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 4 August 2016
schedules are not managed well lacking of crew every afternoon shifts I enjoy working but it makes me sad that they don't manage our schedules properly and if someone call and sick they don't find someone to replace for the sick crew.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 2 August 2016
I learned how to use the cash register machine in 3 days and was taking drive thru orders mainly. Also cleaned tables at times when told to do so. Hardest part of the job is when it gets busy. Most enjoyable part of the job is talking with customers when they come to the and have a talk with you.
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – London, ON – 1 August 2016
A typical day at work would be constantly smiling and greetng the customers. Trying to get everything so quickly but properly. Always on the go. The great part about it was that the management was always approachable. If anyone ever felt too stressed or had personal problems, the management was there to help. Co-workers were fun and respectful. The hardest part of this job was learning to separate yourself from the job. In the sense of not taking any comment or action done by a client personal. Because sometimes there were some pretty rude people. The best part abut the job was the people I worked with. They were very team like and we all worked together to make the day go as smoothly as possible.
FRONT CASHIER (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 13 July 2016
burger king is a fun place to work on, you learned a lot things and you work with nice people. However, i am not pleased when the management started to cut hours which we, crews, suffered especially on busy days.
Cashier/Food Preparation (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 5 July 2016
In all my experiences at lower level jobs, this has absolutely got to be the worst. Absolutely no synergy whatsoever between/amongst staff and managers. Staff is clearly divided by culture, anytime anyone messes up or does something unfavorable, many employees would stop working and talk about each other, often not in English. Managers ALWAYS pulled rank on each other, and often made employees do two-three conflicting tasks at a time. Managers would steal and take multiple hour long breaks, and were not receptive to those needing assistance, which is terrible because there is no autonomy in the job whatsoever. You need a manager's approval to even edit a customer's order, which is inefficient at best, considering how often it happens. When there are rushes and they are not available, disaster is bound to happen (at least once every shift). Customers can always sense the clear divide and either use it to their advantage to score free food, or take out their frustrations on lowly employees. In 6 months, our GM had changed three times, leading the scheduling being based on who was present the first few times they worked. I went on vacation for two weeks during one of the changes, and my hours slowed from 3-4 shifts per week to 1 every two weeks. All managers are hired without experience from outside, and I, in my time, have never seen any move up in rank. The discount is horrible, the staff is horrible, the discount is horrible, and to top it all off, I gained 15 pounds from working there. Wage increases are few and far between, and I've never seen a single one in allmore... my time there, despite being one of their most reliable, versatile, regular knowledgeable and respected employees at the time. The only good thing that came out of my time at BK was seeing how disgusting fast food places really are. Vegetarian now.less

Cook/Shift Coordinator (Former Employee) – Thunder Bay, ON – 22 June 2016
Although I genuinely enjoyed working at Burger king, head office doesn't seem to understand that people who work hard need to make a living. Those at the top make all kinds of money. Those grunts at the bottom, not so much.
