Challenging but fun workplace

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Normally working in fast food is always fast pace. It's a great way to do my everyday exercise. And the food is free! The challenge comes during rush hours when everybody is hungry and hurrying up to eat.

Pros

Free meal

Cons

Pressure for meeting the daily speed of service.

Stressed and under scrutiny by unprofessional and incompetent management

The best part of the day after any shift is leaving. There is a constant culture of hating the job. People are envious of people who have resigned because the management has a bad habit of not letting people quit, threatening to fire them if they asked again. The work is consistently stressful with small mistakes being constantly pointed out and compliments from customers ignored. The wages are minimal and stay minimal. The only raise i ever received after working there for 4 years was a 30 cent increase for doing the morning maintenance which was exponentially more involved and stressful. i am currently looking for a new job and its the best decision i have made in 4 years. Wish me luck

Pros

One free meal just big enough for you to not die on shift

Cons

Management and work culture in general

Fast paced

Usually full on engaged with jobs.Includes cleaning and training for advancement in pay.Sometimes can be stressful, but can also be pretty relaxed.Recommend working days, as there's usually more crew to lighten the load.Some managers can make a shift or make it more stressful.

Pros

Free meal per shift

Cons

Long hours and stressful work

Very busy doing graveyard shifts and was not worth it

This job is only necessary if you need money, not a really good job for full-time. Managers are always angry even when you try your best to appease them while working.

I will not return

It was a ongoing process of different shifts. No promises to a successful outcome or job benefits. Previous qualifications and experience were not taken into account.

Review

good place for first time job. Pay is slightly over minimum wage once fully trained a for a pay rise is available however takes very long. Lots of hours available receiving extra shifts is on demand alot of the time. Very stressful but fast paced environment. Communication is not the greatest . Have a crew who knows what they're doing with good teamwork is the key!

Fast food joint

only worked here to help with the bills. Very catty and most of the people I worked with were very uptight and never thought to include everyone in anything. they had their own clicks. it was like high school all over again but you were getting paid

Fun workplace but a bit hard at time

The work was incredibly fun to work at but sometimes they make you do all 3 positions at once and its sometimes hard to keep up. But I would recommend it

Pros

Free Lunch and free food at the end when shop is closing!

Fun workplace

Everyday at work you need to be prepared and ready for the rush, never know what time it can get busy. It's good to meet new people and make good friends at work. Sometimes we don't get all our breaks which is annoying. Need to be stocked up and full of energy to be fast and fresh service to the customers.

Pros

Free crew meals

Cons

doing long hours

Average workplace

Burger King is a great place for a highschool student to be working at part time, which is exactly what I was doing. I enjoyed taking home the free food at the end, eventhough pay was small, pay was necessary.

fun workplace

the best part about the job is meeting new people each day. I like the atmosphere you get positive vibes from everyone. The hardest part of the job would be drive thru is talking to the customers, paying orders at the same time, make drinks and runnin orders aswell. I learnt a lot while working a bk such as customer service.

Pros

free lunch

Cons

long hours
