Employees Reveal What It's Really Like To Work At BurgerFi

When you really need to be cheered up, what do you turn to? Perhaps a serving of crispy fries and a delicious burger filled with the toppings of your choice? Not such a bad idea, right? When it comes to burgers, there are a few places that are bound to feature highly on your list in terms of flavor. Speaking of which, one of the names trying its best to make a solid impression on its patrons in the industry is BurgerFi, a trendy chain that even has Martha Stewart on the board of its Product and Innovation Committee.

Per the brand's website, BurgerFi was started in 2011 by a group of gourmet chefs who wanted to serve high-quality dishes to their customers in a sustainable setting that's good for the environment. As the brand explains, "That's why our natural Angus beef is sourced from the leading ranches in the country and always free of hormones, steroids, and antibiotics."

But wait. What is the company like when it comes to treating its employees? According to ZoomInfo, BurgerFi now has over 3,000 employees nationwide. Here's what you need to know about what it's really like working at BurgerFi.

BurgerFi employees can expect a little bit of everything

According to some staff members onĀ Indeed, working at BurgerFi can be a lot of fun. A current employee wrote, "Very friendly people, enjoy the work environment. Great management and clean place. I enjoy learning something new every day." Another employee lamented over the fact that they're not too happy with their managers and wish that they would be nicer to work with. One grill cook from New York shared that BurgerFi was a job for the "hard workers" because it is so physically demanding, explaining that, "A typical day of work is being on the grill, taking meat on and off and into the buns, which you have to put on a separate bun grill to toast... (There's only 1 grill cook per shift, imagine the rush hours)."

However, an ex-employee at the organization mentioned that they were let down by working at BurgerFi after many years (via Glassdoor). They wrote, "The owner of this restaurant does not care about his employees and will talk negatively about you to other people. The turn over is terrible." They added that micromanagement was a major issue for them. According to Glassdoor, just 37 percent of employees would recommend the job to a friend.

Another former employee who was a general manager at the company wrote that they did get to learn a lot on the job and said that there were plenty of opportunities to grow within the organization. To each their own, huh?
