Burger King Crew Member (Former Employee) – Raleigh, NC – October 4, 2017
a typical day was pretty good we hd a lot of great customers i learned to cook and clean the management was kind of poor there wasn't really no hard parts the i experienced with the job the most enjoyable part was having a fun time making the customers happy
Well, the GM likes to call the employees scrubs, the AGM2 felt threatened by me so , she starting gossiping about me to the whole store, including my pay raises and personal information to the team members, was promised a raise, never received it, horrible staffing, I personally think if they were more professional , the place would run better.....
Benefits available after a while working as a manager
Burger King Cook/Crew Member (Former Employee) – Decatur, IL – June 17, 2017
I use to love working there. Management and Crew were always good to work with. The food is always fresh. The customers aren't always the nicest but most of them are. But anyway it's a great place to work when you're trying to get your for in the door for experience.
very bad management, no proper of interested in proper training, very load, and demeaning to new employees
Accounts Payable Clerk (Former Employee) – Syracuse, NY – June 12, 2017
Very bad experience, all the older employee and fun of the office. No team playing, and quick to call an error out in the middle of the office. Management allows bulling(verbal). No proper training, just old notes to follow. Upper staff not people friendly. No good morning, or good nights. Under cover boss is really needed here
Team Member (Current Employee) – Hendersonville, NC – April 19, 2017
I like working for Carrols corporation because I have managers who give me a really flexible schedule. Although, employees are not paid for the effort given and raises come far and few between. Nothing in my job is hard, I do what I am asked and that is the end of it. The most enjoyable part would have to be the diverse people I meet and stories I hear from them.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Syracuse, NY – April 8, 2017
Fast food management. Not really much to say here except that the experience that you have will largely depend on the crew that you can put together. When you have a good crew you will have a lot of fun, take home decent bonuses, and never have to work more than you should. On the other side, a bad crew will mean that you work insane hours and get less pay. The high turnover means that you will almost definitely experience both of these things eventually.

Team Lead (Former Employee) – Greenwood, IN – September 18, 2016
I was with Carrols Corp. for almost three years. I spent so much of my time there because I was able to work my way up, and accept responsibilities that I had been yearning for. Customer service is an industry I enjoy.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Tecumseh, MI – August 20, 2016
This company never gives credit where credit is due. Always had to work extra hard at 50+ hours a week to compensate for those who did not. They hire whatever comes through the door and SMDH trying to figure out what your supposed to do with them, for a lousy wage. It didn't just stop their, on days off if their was a problem the actually expected us to counsel incompetent managers on the phone. So essentially I had to do the job they were paid to do in my absence even on my days off, for the lousy wage. The list goes on and on.

If you bust your hump, you are punished and insulted for the incompetency of the cannon fodder. The cute and bubbly teenagers will stand in a corner texting their friends and talking about their personal lives while you get screamed at by customers because their orders are messed up or the wait is too long and your RGM will join them and scream at you and they will tell your DM that the bubbly kids are amazing and they will get promotions over the people doing the real work. In fact, thr harder you work, the less chance you have to get promoted because you are the person they want for the peek hours because you are reliable and they want you available to cover shifts when everyone else bails. You may work two separate shifts ranging from 6-9 hours a piece and get trash talked when youre on your 17th hour and starting to slow down a little. Beware if you join management because you will be left with all the shifts the other managers do not want and you will be belittled and embarrassed by the brats that work below you and they will not be reprimanded. You are the mistake, not them. The RGM will tell you that you are expendable and point out EVERY flaw and if you see the slightest bit of appreciation from either your RGM or DM, they will rip out from underneath you so quickly, you wont know where you are. Its a trap!!!
They keep you busy
They play favorites, overwork the good people, hire just about anything that walks through the door... I could go on for days
Your work culture will be determined on your RGM and/or DM.
Shift Supervisor (Former Employee) – Henrico, VA – December 11, 2015
Carrols Corporation Region VI (Richmond) is a sinking ship which people are jumping in herds. Turnover at my store was well over 200%, we were constantly short-staffed and had a completely incompetent General Manager. The RGM sets the standard and culture for each restaurant. I worked under five RGMs over the course of several years, each having very different expectations and procedures. One RGM was an aggressive psychopath who tried to convince high school students to continue working for Burger King rather than attending college because "an Assistant Manager makes more than a high school teacher." With that being said, the salary range for an Assistant Manager at Carrols is approximately 28k-30k. Last time I checked, our local school division starts teachers off at 44k; big difference! My last RGM was completely incompetent and treated our employees like trash; belittling them in front of their co-workers and customers and openly insulting them during management meetings. Shift Supervisors are paid $9.00 per hour to manage all aspects of the restaurant's operations and are expected to accomodate for employee call-outs, low staffing levels, insubordinate/belligerent employees, and other issues which should be remedied by the RGM. Carrols Region VI does not promote from within, but rather hires external candidates whose qualifications include: misdemanor and felony convictions, failed drug tests, and poor employment history. Unfortunately, this company invests too much time and development into poor salaried management candidates and often times passes over their high performingmore... hourly managers, which has resulted in an increased management turnover rate. I have seen it happen all too many times and it is truly the company's loss. Stores have been closing their doors left and right in the Richmond area and more will surely follow.less
