Cashier and Server (Former Employee) – Thomson, GA – May 26, 2016
On a normal day at work i would take orders, prepare food, clean the dinning area, wash dishes,and work drive thru. I learned how to make sandwiches and how to ring up food. The hardest part is during lunch hours because it was very busy. Working drive thru is the best part of the job.
Fry Cook (Former Employee) – Ardmore, OK – May 26, 2016
Every day at work I was usually tasked with cleaning the eating area & bathrooms. Not the most glorious of jobs or tasks but I got paid for it. I learned really great work ethic, my co-workers were all nice and friendly to me and what I enjoyed the most was having money in my pocket (I was a teenager then, and I didn't have much if any spending cash.)
Free food and employee discounts
Didn't have any other benefits like health insurance or dental.
Productive and fun to eat for breakfast, lunch or dinner
Assistant Mgr. (Former Employee) – Pennsylvania – May 26, 2016
Was busy getting ready for the day. Learned customers are hard to please at times. Managers were fair to have a happy environment. Co-workers either liked being there or just in it for paycheck which we tried to encourage doing the job right and putting their best foot forward, which at times was the hardest part. I enjoyed having repeat customers it showed we did a fair job and gave them a great meal.
crew member (Former Employee) – Bloomfield, CT – May 26, 2016
Working in burger king I learned to have patience while also moving in a very fast pace. We would get extremely busy during lunch and sell over $2300 worth of food. depending on what position you were in determined the type of day, for example if you worked in the kitchen it would be hot but your were constantly moving keeping up with the orders, making sure that the product was hot and made correctly. however if you were in the front or in drive thru your day varied on the customers that you had at the moment. Some customers were very pleasant and made working at burger king worth while, while others were a little bit more difficult to get along with however if u persistently showed them a positive attitude usually they would come around.
free meals if worked over 6 hrs discounted if worked less

Production Leader/Opening Manager (Current Employee) – Smithfield, NC – May 25, 2016
Managers are great and they can work with you according to your schedule. I've gained many skills while working at the job such as, communication skills, multitasking, listening in detail, social skills, and working on my attitude. Every co-worker respects one another, it's just a friendly environment to work with. The hardest part of the job is dealing with difficult customers, other than that everything is pretty easy. What I enjoy about my job the most is getting to know new people and also see our regular customers happy.
It is a great place for a first job it makes you work hands on and it makes you productive.
Crew Member/Cashier/Cook (Current Employee) – Watervliet, MI – May 25, 2016
My day at work starts off by going in and helping with things that the other shift couldn't finish, during the days that go by I learned that you have to always do your best no matter what to make things better during the work day. The managers are nice and helpful at some points but they like to sit in the office a lot of the time, I learned even if the managers are just sitting in the office calm down and do the best you can don't ever rush yourself because that puts more pressure on yourself.
We get 50% off of our meals. Other crew members help as much as possible.
Managers sit in the office a lot, People get a 5 minute break to smoke but non-smokers don't get a 5 minute.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Norfolk, VA – May 25, 2016
Customer service in of itself is rewarding while other times it seemed pointless to be as nice or courteous as possible. I felt like a slave, especially feeling disrespected and challenged towards the end from management. Hence the reason I left.
Fry Cook/Cashier (Former Employee) – Buffalo, NY – May 25, 2016
when i worked there i was always the only one in the kitchen and became very good at running it alone. i was told several times that i was going to be made a shift manager but was never trained. when i had to get another job because of a pay cut i fell asleep after working a month straight without a day off and missed one shift and was fired, over the phone.
great place for a first job, but now I'm looking for something in my career
Cashier (Current Employee) – North Olmsted, OH – May 25, 2016
Working at burger king has been great, I start my shift most likely being on drive thru. I take orders, prepare drinks, collect money, and bag the food. If drive thru is not busy and I have nothing to do I help the front cashier expedite their orders. I learned that not everyone treats you nicely but I learned how to deal with it in a appropriate manor. I got to experience many new things. I learned to communicate well with coustumers and my coworkers, my coworkers are like my family.The hardest part is when we are under staffed and it is a busy day, everything becomes stressful, but at the same time I enjoy a little challenge. The most enjoyable part is getting to work with people who I love and who support me, also caring customers are the best, this taught me that showing care/comfort to costumers means a lot.
cashier (Former Employee) – Plant City, FL – May 24, 2016
I had to clean restrooms, take out trash, and take orders. I learned to count cash faster, and better. I loved working with my boss, if I did something wrong she told me and showed me how to do it correctly. My co-workers always taught me when I first arrived I absolutely loved working with them. hardest part was the breakfast, lunch and dinner rush hours, but I got used to it eventually. I enjoyed talking to the customers, and helping them.
Cashier and Customer Service (Current Employee) – Shirley, NY – May 24, 2016
A normal day would be where I come in count the inventory, adhere to the customers orders at drive thru, work with fellow workers to get the job done as quickly and effective as possible customers are always happy to come to Burger King and talk very well about it I have learned some very useful manager accessories, such as closing and sending the sales and numbers to the District Manager
