  • Less than 4 weeks notice of shifts

    How much notice do crew members get of their shift pattern at Burger King?

    • 5% report getting two weeks notice
    • 2% report getting three weeks notice
    • 7% report getting four weeks notice or more

    Based on information from 56 job reviews

    Why this matters

Not great
  • Contracts don’t match the hours people work

    Do crew members work the same number they are contracted for at Burger King?

    Only some people work the same number of hours they’re contracted for

    How we know this

    75% of people report working 8 hours or more than they’re contracted for each week

    Based on information from 48 job reviews

    Why this matters

    At a good job, you should expect to work about the same number of hours that your contract guarantees you, most of the time.

    It’s useful to pick up or drop a few shifts here and there, but if you often work a lot more hours every week than you’re contracted for, a good job should guarantee them.

    This means you’re more likely to know when you’ll be working and how much you’ll earn in advance.

  • Shifts get changed at short notice

    Most managers change people’s shifts at short notice

    How we know this

    57% of people say their manager changes their shifts at the last minute

    Based on information from 44 job reviews

    Why this matters

    If your manager is often changing your shifts at short notice that’s a sign of poor planning. At a good job you won’t be messed around at the last minute.

    This makes it easier to plan your finances, because you know how much you’ll be earning.
