Burger King was founded in 1953, under the name Insta-Burger King. The name changed to Burger King in 1954 and has changed owners 4 times. As of 2012, 95% of stores are franchises, allowing for many opportunities for employment. Growing beyond offering just burgers, Burger King now directly competes with nearly every fast food chain, both in and outside of the United States. With the iconic Whopper still going strong, Burger King remains a key fast food provider today.
As most stores are privately owned, an application and quick interview are very typical for entry-level applicants. You can expect to be asked questions regarding providing change, dealing with customers & conflict management. Additionally, most employees can expect to work nights and weekends and handle their shift management accordingly. For corporate interviews, you can expect a multitude of interviews, from phone to Skype and eventually face-to-face; for smaller cook and cashier positions, you can expect face-to-face interviews and an offer.
