The work ethic was grea

It was too fast paced for me. Everything I did had to be fast & it just wasn’t for me. Overall the work ethic of the workers were amazing and they paid great.



Blacklick, OH - May 13, 2020

Productive workplace

I would come in to work and place team members in their positions for the day. I would complete my tasks for the day and have team members help out. I would run the floor as well and make sure things are running smoothly on the computer end as well. I count the money and drawers, run reports at the end of the shift, and keep the customers satisfied.



Owensboro, KY - May 11, 2020

It was a wonderful job i enjoyed every minute of it.

Interacting with people is something i really enjoy and im very good at. Working at white castle was an amazing experience. The training was very usefull and when i had questions or needed help the managers were always ready to help.

St. Louis, MO - April 18, 2020

Productive and enjoyable

A typical day at work consisted of a friendly greeting followed by a meal and a lesson. Management was excellent and I learned a lot about what it takes to be on any work force. The hardest part of the job was maintaining my connections with co-workers considering I'm mostly self-driven and enjoy my peace and quiet after a days hard work. What I enjoyed most was the food and daily interactions.

I liked working there although most of the customers are rude, and one of the managers are rude to the employees and customers. The pay was okay most nights it was short staffed.

Fun place to work as a first job

You deal with different attitudes throughout the day but it's not hard because of the people you are surrounded by... management and employers both show good teamwork and leadership.

I been working there for 3 months it was a bit much at first but I have grown to like it Although the managers and some of the team members are not very nice...But I need a job and it gives the hours you need You just have to be able to stand the bad attitudes from customers and employees



Las Vegas, NV 89101 - March 31, 2020

It’s not for everyone.

I’ve been at this location for 2-1/2 years and and things have changed. I have worked under 4 different general managers and thinks keep going downhill in my opinion.

Expect the worse hope for best it is a fast food job

Working at White Castle was okay. I recommend fast food jobs to much younger people (like a first job or so) because of the low pay and workload, but if you aren't...hey..."gotta do what you gotta do". Plus it's an ok job, overall. Expect rude customers, coworkers/management to work nerves at times, etc. ..but hope for good days and good connections with people. Busdays make th e
