Good place to work for highschool/college students
Restaurant Worker (Current Employee), Whitby, ON – November 25, 2015
The Burger King I presently work at has a high turn-over rate and the majority are part time highschool students. I've been working at Burger King for a year and half and it's serviced me and my wallet well but i need a change of scenery and need to start finding a job in my specified field. I work hard and take pride in my work even if it is just flipping burgers and taking the person's money, but I feel like sometimes i'm one of the only ones truly working there.
producive workplace surrounded by delicious smelling food
cashier (Former Employee), Calgary, AB – August 18, 2015
Workplace was usually very busy with customers. But as a team you work together to get orders done as fast as possible. The hardest part of the job was working around such delicious yet unhealthy and greasy food. But it was fun to work there because you get to learn different positions.
Staff and management are nice and hard working people
crew member (Current Employee), Port Moody, BC – August 10, 2015
Pros: Nice and hard working co-workers
Cons: Hard to progress
Every day is the same, take orders and make the food. On a typical day of work, a worker would probably not learn anything new unless they just started. My co-workers are hard workers and everyone is nice. From this job I took away better people skills and being able to keep working at a fast pace for a continued length of time.
Cashier/Cook (Former Employee), Regina, SK – August 6, 2015
Pros: Amazing and wonderful coworkers
Cons: Not enough hours.
A typical day at work would be to clean and cook the food in the back. I also worked up at the front where I was able to converse with customers. I really loved to be able to get to know the customers and welcome returning customers. My coworkers were wonderful. They were always helpful with whatever need I had, and always had positive reinforcement. One of the hardest parts of my job was how busy it would get, and how I would have to adjust to the fast paced situations. But I soon got used to how fast things were, and I adapted. This in turn made me able to work in stressful situations without letting my emotions get ahead of me. The most enjoyable part of my job was working with my coworkers. They always had a way of making the shift a lot of fun.
Cashier and Customer Service (Former Employee), mississauga – August 4, 2015
friendly co workers, friendly customer service, food made hot and fresh, managing your own till, food prep, hardest part of the job was when other workers call in sick on busy days lots of customers would leave cuz of the long wait in line.
Shift Coordinator (Current Employee), Belleville, ON – July 27, 2015
Pros: Free Lunches and great social aspect
Cons: No cons
A typical day of work consists of cash handling, face-face interaction with customers on a regular basis and you have to have great problem solving skills. Our number one goal is to ensure everybody leaves happy. I can usually tell if someone is having a horrible day and a terrible time with our services and its up to me as a Shift-Coordinator to ensure that I take the initiative and approach the customer appropriately and make sure they are taken care of. The management is great and and team work environment at times can get challenging but we all get through it at the end of the day. The hardest part of my job would be dealing with intoxicated customer and asking them to leave. There is lots of resistance but we are a family restaurant and we cannot have our other customers feel uncomfortable to the point of them leaving and possibly not returning. I love my job because I love socializing, I like people and I like conversation, people for the most part and very easy to get along with and all they are asking for is some respect and to be dignified. My job is easy and I really never have many problems. At that, I'm a night Shift-Coordinator beside a bar and I really never run into problems.

There were moments when i really enjoyed working at burger king. But then it got hectic at times because the mangement didnt do there best with the scheduling. Sometimes there werent enough workers and sometimes there were too many.
Cook / Crew Member (Former Employee), Oshawa, ON – July 12, 2015
One of the nicest places ive worked, my supervisor was amazing. I really recommend this place to everyone. The only problem is not too many hours but beside that the environment is amazing and the owners are really nice
Cashier (Former Employee), Delta, BC – July 10, 2015
Typical day would be either assigned to cashier or to the back in the kitchen and make the orders. If I am cashier then I would take orders from customers let them know if we have any promotions and complete their order. If I am working in the kitchen I would complete their order with the way the customers ask for. Overall the work environment was very fun and everyone working made it enjoyable to work with, the only hardest part of the job was in the summer when it would get really hot with the ovens on.
cook (Former Employee), Saskatoon Saskatchewan – July 6, 2015
Pros: Money, learned new things

I liked working at burger king because they help out every step of the way, they also taught me how to do cashier. the hardest part was making it because i was busy with family stuff i mostly liked the company that was there and the help they gave

Working at Burger King has been great for my first job. I have gained excellent customer service skills along with other traits. I love my boss and all of the managers. If I have any problem, I feel safe knowing that I can confide in them. I have also met a number of amazing people at my job.
