Management and other employees were wonderful. Hours were balanced. Pay was alright for the work. Only real downside I had was the distance I had to drive.

Very productive and structured, and also fast paced.
Cashier & Cook (Former Employee) –  Arlington, TXOctober 18, 2018
It was my first job that have me a chance to grow as a young man, employee, and a family man all in one. Everyone looked out for each other inside and outside of work and made sure customers came first. Though at times it got busy everyone made sure they did their job and management made sure they made the right calls when someone needed to cover for a shift so that the employees weren't overwhelmed I'd recommend it to anyone looking to get on their feet, or to save a little cash, its very beneficial.
Pros
Free lunch if you work over 4 hours
Cons
Short breaks

Good place to start
Crewmember (Former Employee) –  Kyle, TXOctober 18, 2018
Whataburger is a good starting place. It would help someone learn how to handle stress and working at a fast pace. A customer can be rude, this is where you learn to handle that properly.

General Manager (Former Employee) –  Tallahassee, FLOctober 18, 2018
DM had her favorites and it was known with GM's where they fell into place as hierarchy. The DM would sabotage what it was you were trying to do within your store. If you had your store turning positive so that you could bonus, the DM would do something with your numbers so that you would not get the full bonus that you had work hard to accomplish.
Pros
Free lunch
Cons
no 401k

Team Member (Former Employee) –  Mesa, AZOctober 18, 2018
Whataburger is a nice place to work but my personal experience was not enough hours and people not showing up for their shifts. Managers there continued to let those people work knowing they were not reliable. So I left because it’s not only unfair to us employees but the company as well. If your going to sign up for a job you should stay committed and put hard work into it everyday with no excuses.

its a fun work place its how you make it
Whataburger Team Member (Former Employee) –  Beaumont, TXOctober 17, 2018
it has its slowed down moments, then people come and you have top start working at a faster pace to get the job down and don't fall behind. I learned to to do drive thru. I learned how to work a cash register I learned how to use a grill. the hardest part of the job is when you are working with someone who is not willing to help you out and got you working by yourself. the most enjoyable part of the job is when you get a big task done and you make your managers happy and team members happy and the customers.
Pros
discounts on meals
Cons
you get like a 30 minute break
