Hi, Welcome To Burger King

Rate this Entry
My friend, Drew, is a manager at one of the Burger King's I frequently go to(oh, who am I kidding, it's THE burger king I go to). He knows how rough life is for me recently and he has all but guaranteed me a job there when I get my ID.

I'm going to be a porter, which he describes as like a janitor. I make sure the restaurant is clean at night, basically. I'll talk more about it when and if I actually do get it, but basically I clean the restaurant; Drew knows I don't like people, or talking to people, so he's not going to have me run the register or anything. I'd probably work nights 11-7. No less than 40 hours weekly.

The ONLY downside is I get minimum wage, which is less than what I was making at Meijer, but I only got a raise there since I'd been there for so long; Drew says after about a month or two I should be due for a raise.

Feels good to almost have a job so I can start getting money again. All's I need's my ID

    Good luck with that. Sounds like a really shitty job.

    As long as I'm out of the house making some money I don't care how bad it sounds.

    Plus I know who I'd work with some nights, and he's a cool guy

    I don't think I'd give my job up for anything right now. Dishwashing isn't necessarily fun and it becomes tough work after a while, but it's not so bad. Still better than my job at Wendy's. Fuck working at that place.

    That's what my cousin started out as at Burger King. He's a line cook now, took him about a month to get to that position. He has a second job though to cover the wages (plus he has 4 kids to support).

    The funny thing is that everyone there pretty much knows he's a pot dealer (used to be ours) so they freely let him do/sell whatever, even to management sometimes.
