Company Culture

Most of the managers are very nice but there are a few who aren't

Support from management

There are a few terrible and rude managers but most are supportive

Teamwork

You must clearly communicate things to the customer

Freedom to work independently

Sometimes someone will not do something they should and I get irritated when I have to do it for them

Internal Communication

Most are good at communication but some just choose to not communicate

Gender Equality

Why would they not?

Attitude towards older colleagues

We don't have anyone over the age of 45 so I can't say that they don't

Career Development

Really your only opportunity for a promotion is to manager

Overall compensation for your work

I am happy with my wage for my work

Office / Work Environment

It is hot but that is to be expected working in a kitchen

Environmental Friendliness

There is a lot of paper and food waste

Work-Life Balance

You work 6 days per week instead of 5 but the shifts are shorter

Company Image

I would rather have this job than no job

Job Security

They are always hiring and I know my job will eventually be lost to automation

Handicapped Accessibility

There are stairs and ramps

Workplace Safety

I never received any direct training but it is common sense what to avoid

Challenging Work

The work its self is rather simple but there is a lot of stress and pressure

Inclusive / Diverse

We have very diverse employees

Suggestions for improvement

  • Having a chair or two in the back would allow me to relieve myself during an 8 hour shift of standing on my feet. Also, not everyone wears a headset. Often, I will be the only one wearing a headset and no one will know we have someone in the drive thru. I will have to shout out to them that we need food and it is very annoying.

What I like about the company

Most of the managers are cool and supportive and like to joke around. They won't get mad at me for a problem I wasn't aware of. They have worked with me to find a work schedule that will work with my school schedule. If I need to stop working or I able to work for even a week, they will work with me to get me shifts. Minimum wage is high. The food is delicious and I am allowed to eat some, when I want, for free. The other employees are very fun. Unless we have a lot of current customers to serve, it is a very fun environment.

What I dislike about the company

The scheduling. When I first started working, the schedule was only scheduled like 2 days in advance. I had no idea when I was working next and even got texted "where are you?" a few times by a manager because I didn't know I had a shift. I even considered quitting because I wasn't getting enough shifts and I didn't know when they were and so I felt like I couldn't commit to anything because I might have to go into work out of the blue.

The following perks were offered to me

Employee discounts is offered Free Snacks/Drinks is offered

Company Culture

Experienced reverse racism from the hispanic employees.

Support from management

My GM was great, his boss (the district manager) was a royal dick who showed no caring or compassion for the employees.

Teamwork

My manager tried but was not successful at preventing workplace tension.

Freedom to work independently

Very little oversight after initial training.

Internal Communication

Despite being talked to, the latino workers continued to say derragatory things about me in spanish. (They didn't know I could speak spanish)

Gender Equality

Most of the shift supervisors were women.

Attitude towards older colleagues

We had one pretty old guy working for us.

Career Development

Not too difficult to make it to a supervisor position. After that, it's not that easy.

Overall compensation for your work

I was lied to in my interview about my starting wage. I started at $7.70/hr. despite 16 years of experience. I was promised $8.00/hr. (which still isn't nearly enough)

Office / Work Environment

The kitchen became extraordinarily hot during the summer time.

Work-Life Balance

Never scheduled overtime.

Company Image

It's fast food. How COULD I be proud?

Job Security

Had too quit due to chronic illness.

Handicapped Accessibility

You must be a paying customer to use the facilities- regardless of disability. (I saw a homeless vet in a wheel chair get told he could not use the bathroom unless he bought something)

Workplace Safety

I hurt my knee due to someone elses neglegense (not cleaning up a spill and not warning anyone about it)

Challenging Work

I've been in the industry for 16 years so it's not difficult for me. However, if you're not used to this line of work, it can become extremely difficult during peak hours.

Inclusive / Diverse

Very diverse staff (ethnicity)

Suggestions for improvement

  • Start giving a damn about their employees. A happy worker is a productive worker. An insured worker is a healthy worker (and a sick worker spreads disease which can result in negative reviews for the store.) Not to mention, IT'S PART OF BEING A DECENT HUMAN BEING! I will NEVER even EAT at a Burger King, EVER again, because of the way corporate treated the employees.

What I like about the company

My manager was amazing. He bent over backward to accommodate both my schedule for my other job, as well as my chronic illness which often forced me to call in for a shift. (I had to go on disability after this job.) As far as positive experiences go... that's about it.

What I dislike about the company

I recall hearing a conversation between my GM and the district manager. The district manager was telling my GM that for every one of his employees who signed up for the companies insurance plan, he would receive a penalty to his end of year bonus. He then began laughing and said, "but don't worry, it's not like we pay any of them enough to be able to afford it anyway." I also witnessed several employees (including the shift supervisor) mocking a homeless man who had come in to get out of the snow (it was winter time) and fell asleep at one of the tables. They then called the police on him and pressed charges for trespassing. This is a HORRIBLE company to work for. They have no compassion, no empathy, and they only care about their bottom line.

Well I remember one day a elderly person came in and did have enough for their order. Cause they really had no money but I feel if it was not for the elderly we would not have our generation so I paid for the elderly person food and gave them money for later.

What I dislike about the company

I think they need to be more disable accessible.
