Kitchen Staff (Former Employee) – Lindsay, ON – 23 May 2018
I worked for Burger King for 3 years, before finally having enough and quitting. The job itself is tolerable - an average kitchen job. Fairly straightforward and easy. As for co- workers and management, this place is a disaster. From having my job threatened by management for forgetting to do a simple task, to being completely disrespected and harassed by my co workers, I've seen it all. This place needs to take their employees seriously, and fight for what's right. I do not recommend working for this location if you want respect, hard working co workers, or management that gets things done.
Employee discounts, fairly flexible when it comes to hours/scheduling.
Poor management, confrontational co workers, gossip/drama, lack of professionalism.
Shift Manager Nights (Former Employee) – Medicine Hat, AB – 16 May 2018
I would get to work, make a bank deposit ready for pickup. review my staff schedule, take inventory, create orders for supplies, food prep, train anyone new, using the three basic methods for training. Check all food for hold times, ensure of proper food safety, checking temps, expiry dates, storage. interact with customers, take orders, cook food, prepare orders, cash out orders. Hardest part was when there would be a sudden surge of customers, due to various reasons, tour buses, events in town. I would just dig down, get ready and cheer my team on that we could do it. I was also responsible for staff maintaining restaurant cleanliness as well.
Enjoyed working with the public, Owners were hands on

You have to work very hard and its backbreaking with lots of demands..very hard to get managers attention..managers tune you out you cant even tell them you have to go to the bathroom or feeling unwell..no new training cant advance..

Cashier (Former Employee) – Moncton Area, NB – 3 May 2018
I first started working at the local BK after quitting a high school sports team, with the one condition that I find a job. Next day I brought a resume in-store, and was hired by the next weekend.
I spent almost 5 years during high school and post-secondary working part-time at BK, mostly after school and Sunday mornings, and the majority of the summer.
Do wish they allowed shorts during the hot months, but do heed their advice for slip-resistant restaurant shoes. Once I took a tumble at work while trying to close the staff door wearing converses. Save your tailbone and wear the ugly things.
Cashier, Drive-through, Food (Former Employee) – Orangeville, ON – 1 May 2018
Burger King was filled with great employees and managers. It was a fun and efficient place to work. I learned a lot about how to deal with customers when they are not satisfied with their work and more about being polite and kind to people (customers and coworkers) because you don't know what is going on in their personal lives.
