Burger King managers perform an array of administrative and supervisory functions to ensure efficiently standardized daily operations across the company’s worldwide network of fast food restaurants.

Train Employees
Burger King management workers recruit, hire, and develop entry-level cashiers and cooks and establish weekly work schedules for all restaurant employees.

Managerial positions generally carry stringent hiring requirements applicants must meet to gain employment consideration from the quick-service restaurant chain. Burger King requires candidates for jobs in management to hold a high school diploma and sometimes prefers applicants to have completed some relevant college coursework, as well.

Strong math skills and proficiency in the Windows computer operating system prove beneficial during the Burger King hiring process. Successful managerial candidates should also possess proven leadership and problem-solving skills.

The ability to work a full-time schedule commonly featuring night, weekend, and holiday shifts is also required.

Prior Experience
Prospective managers must also have previous management experience within the restaurant or hospitality industry.

Salary / Pay

Salary options for Burger King managers typically vary according to experience, job title, and location. Annual pay for assistant managers generally falls between $24,000 and $35,000, while general managers often earn roughly $45,000 or more per year.

In addition to competitive salaries, full-time managers at Burger King enjoy access to employment benefits, like medical coverage, dental and vision plans, flexible spending accounts, life insurance options, and 401(k) retirement plans. The quick-service restaurant chain also offers meal discounts, paid time off, and tuition assistance to qualified workers.

Job Outlook

The second-largest fast food hamburger chain in the world, Burger King entered the Canadian market in 1969 and operates roughly 300 franchise locations throughout the country. In 2013, Redberry Investments purchased Burger King Canada franchising rights and launched an aggressive campaign to open new restaurants. Having established corporate offices in Calgary, Montreal, and Toronto, the master franchisee clearly intends to expand the Burger King presence more evenly throughout the major population centers of Canada. Such a promising outlook bodes well for urban Canadian job seekers pursuing restaurant management careers in the fast food industry.
