Pros: free lunches for covering shifts
A typical day involved preparation of food, as well as cleaning and maintenance of the kitchen area. There I learned to keep productive in a constantly-moving environment.

Most co-workers were efficient and easy to get along with, but some cut corners to get through – more... their shift quicker and easier. No part of the job was too difficult. The most enjoyable part of the job was preparation of food. – less

Poor Experience
Cashier (Former Employee), St. Thomas On.April 6, 2014
Pros: 20% discount off food
Cons: poor management
A typical day working at Burger King would include taking orders from costumers, basic janitorial duties, and bagging food for costumers. I learned basic costumer service skills and time management skills. Management was poor. Schedules were posted sometimes a day before the previous schedule and concerns were not always addressed. Some co-workers were – more... good. Some worked well as a team, but most didn't work well in a team environment. The hardest part of my job was working both front cash and drive-through. The most enjoyable part of the job was serving costumers. – less

Great first job, fun, friendly, good
Cashier (Former Employee), London, ONMarch 30, 2014
Pros: long hours, shifts were handed out reasonably, good managers
Cons: working for a corporation.
A typical day at Burger King is knowing when the rush will hit and when to clean the dinning room.No customer wants to wait in line for a long period of time just waiting for the cashier to get back from cleaning. Between 12-2 and 5-8 we expected customers to be lined up to the door especially during whopper Wednesdays, greet all customers with a smile, – more... thank them for choosing Burger King. In between rushed go out and clean as much as you can until the next rush. What I learned while working at Burger King is how to have good drive through times, every time I worked on drive-thru the crew in the back and I would tackle the challenge of getting the times we would get all of them in one day and it is rewarding to have a manager come up to us after a long day and tell us what an amazing job we had done. The hardest part of the job would have to be getting drive-thru times on our busy days like Wednesdays and Saturdays. The best part was the crew and the managers who always made going to work amazing and fun filled. – less

Amazing high school job
Manager, Crew Traner And Crew Member (Former Employee), regina, saskMarch 24, 2014
Pros: flexible
Cons: fast food
I loved working the hours I needed to work and having a very flexible schedule with school. I would work the late nights on the weekend with an amazing crew and could not have had more fun then we did.
As I exceled and was promoted up in the company I got along well with all my managers but one. We did learn to get along when we had to work together. – more... Hardest part of my job would have been all the paper work at the end of a seven hour night. – less

kitchen worker (Former Employee), Nepean, ONMarch 18, 2014
Pros: made a lot of friends
Cons: abusive customers, no benefits
I worked at Burger King for an incredible 5 years, but It should have not lasted that long. Shortly after I worked there, I began to notice how strange the management was. My paychecks were getting smaller while working the same hours on a weekly basis and health and safety was visiting more often. After 3 years, a new manager came and she was strict – more... and reduced all our hours saying it was going by sales and we were short-staff most of the time. Less than a year, another new manager and even more problems. He denied me breaks saying it was based on behavior and criticizing my personal life and making judgements when he was stressed and not having a good day. He dealt with difficult customers and stood up to them whenever they yelled at us. Unfortunately he died just over a year after taking over as manager. We all soon ended up quitting because things were getting worse because the franchisee group treated their employees badly, never paid overtime, and only cared about making money and never our safety at work. The franchisee group caved in and eventually sold the chain to an American company where they invested in new equipment and renovations. – less
