It was alright but to be honest if you weren't a certain ethnicity (not being racist or anything) you were treated differently and you could feel. But if your will is strong enough you could deal with it.
Burger King is an amazing work place and people to work with. Sometime dealing with the customers can be hard but you can always call a manager but if they are busy you can always call a crew member who been there long enough to help you because everyone there always has a helping hand.
Work itself was ok. Learnt lots of skills on drive thru and front counter. Would recommend for students but career advancement is limited and management at my store were derogatory at times and demeaning. Was fast tracked for management pretty quick but the pay is average and they expect you to be available for a huge amount of hours a week whenever they feel like it.
Don't over work the workers treat all workers with respect you will find that you will get respect back don't single any race out that is what I found with management when I was working there that is a definite No No it would be good if the high rarkies would give their workers a free meal
Burger King started very hard for me, with a roster of mostly people speaking different language from English it was hard to get along with work mates. The Burger Management needs to be fixed, as always having lacking staff on a shift, meaning double the amount of stress to workers, when there is enough people on the roster.
Minimum wage all throughout. Very demanding job. You need to be able to learn quick only through verbal instructions. No comprehensive training documents to support you (not even an ingredient and procedure list for the various burgers). Disgusting and sometimes dangerous workplace. Bosses do not employ effective security personnel to protect those working during night shift hours.

Honestly, this job depends on who is working with you. If you have a chill team, and the customers aren't coming at you full force, the shift is fine, but if you have bad/boring co workers the days can get pretty long.
although my experience at Burger King was limited it was an overall good experience, love the friendly vibes that the other works radiated truly special. However, i have felt that working at Burger King wasn't for me.
good place to start your career at fast food industry as you start from scratch and gradually move up the ladder. As you have a mixed culture of people working there you also get to learn about different culture.

They treated you like I was dirt. To them you were not a person. You were just something helping them make money. You were there to be used and walked all over. After working there I needed therapy. My holiday pay out was short of over $500 but I could never prove it because they locked me out of my employee account a week before I finished working there. Overall worst time of my life.
the workplace is really fast paced and fun when you get the hang of everything and have a great team to help out. I learnt so much from , cooking, making burgers , taking orders, running them, cleaning , maintenance, and a lot more

management was not supportive or understanding, the day was very fast-paced and stressful. the most enjoyable part of the job was the breaks. didn't get full training and was required to do online training at home in my own time.
