    I have been working at Burger King part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Always hours to work which makes for a guarenteed decent wage packet at the end of every fortnight
    Location of the restaurant is very beneficial

    Cons

    Very unsociable hours, the shifts are too long
    Wage compared to competitors is awful
    Other staff members not reliable to do the job
    High staff turnover
    Management unaproachable and rude, also favourable towarda certain staff members when doing the rota
    Never enough staff on shift

    Advice to Management

    Give out fairer shifts to all employees, employ more people so the shifts arent as unsociable all the time, this will mean less staff turnover
    Increase the wage, i know its not exactly worth a footballers wage, but for the work given, it is in no way the same as conpetitors

    I have been working at Burger King full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Not much, some of the team are okay and occasionally you get a nice customer but not very often.

    Cons

    everything, new delivery system is awful, disorganised, unclean, staff don't care about others, work load to much poor pay.

    Advice to Management

    Sort it out, stop moaning about labour being to high, it may appear to be high but in actual fact we are really struggling out in the real world, not just sitting behind a computer like them.

    I have been working at Burger King full-time

    Pros

    Friendly staff, free food on breaks and small discount 10% when buying food.

    Cons

    No expenses paid back!! Bad communication from head office. Training is really poor.

    Advice to Management

    Could be a really enjoyable place to work with better communication. Money is an issue you can't promise staff they're going to get paid for things and not pay them.

    It's a positive environment most of the time and people don't complain as much as you think they would, which is a benefit.

    Advice to Management

    Always loved Burger King over Mac Donald, burger king has higher quality than the rest of the competition, food quality standards better by far.

    Cons

    Always striving to better work quality and making customers happy and welcome, well as exceeding their expectations. Finding ways to promote

    Advice to Management

    Keeping. Up with promotions with competition
