    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Carl's Jr.

    Interview Details

    Interviewer is usually the general manager or assistant manager. The assistant interviewed me, sat me down with paper work (orientation papers i believe). So, if you win over the interview your hired on the spot.

    Part Time Crew Member Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Carl's Jr in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    The restaurant I wanted to work at had to be applied to in-store so I went and asked to see the manager who showed me where the applications were. I filled one out and turned it in the next day to the manager who said he would send it to corporate because they had to look over it before they could hire me. He said it would take a week or two to process so I went home. A week later he called and said I could come in for an interview. So that weekend on Saturday morning at 10:30 I went in to meet him. The manager showed up 15 minutes late, but I waited for him and we didn't even end up doing the interview. He just gave me a bunch of papers to fill out and I got the job then and there. He gave me the uniform top and told me to get the rest of the uniform (black pants, shoes, etc.) so I could call him on Monday and come in to work on Thursday. I think that even if I did the interview it would have mostly just been a formality especially in fast food joints since the turnover rate is so high and they need new workers all the time. Easy to get hired, but hard to continue enjoying the job since the customers can be a bit bothersome and the drive-thru can be pretty stressful. I like my job, but it's definitely not a permanent one.

    Crew Member Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Diamond Bar, CA
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Carl's Jr in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    S. Manager: Store Manager
    D. Manager: District Manager

    I did walk-ins at various fast-food chains in the area.

    (at this point I was inexperienced at getting hired)
    I contacted their S manager and asked if they are currently hiring. I was told by the S manager that they are currently looking for people for that store. Manager told me that they are however out of paper applications and to apply online and to call in when I have finished. I was also told to get a California Food Handler certificate (it was $15 and expires 3 years from date taken.)

    I went home and went on Carl's Jr career section. I found 3 stores in the area. The one I wanted to work at had an 404 error for that store (their store page was down), so I had to wait until they had papers printed (took a week). When they did have it I filled one and applied and was asked by the S manager how much do you want this job. I said I need this job so I can have a steady income and go back to school. S manager stated that they will give it to their D manager and will have to wait for their response.

    4 days later I have not gotten an answer, so I walk in person and asked S manager if they are actively hiring. S manager tells me to hold on and gets me in contact with D manager in person and I got an interview on the spot regarding why I want this job (will add questions to other section). I got other forms to fill and was told to get work shoes and a haircut. My hair was apparently too long when I had already gotten a haircut from shoulder length to an around the ear short hairstyle, but D manager wanted a faded kind of haircut.

    I go back the next day with a new haircut and had to sign some contracts/forms and submit a b/w copy of social security and state ID. I was told to come in tomorrow.

    I arrived at work with black pants and white t-shirt. I was given a small red uniform and cap to wear. I started working right away without really being told my schedule.

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Carl's Jr in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Sorry to discriminate but honestly, if you're pretty (experience, attitude, smartness ASIDE) you pretty much got the job, especially if the manager is a male. I have other friends who work at carls sooo I hear a lot and have experienced it first hand. I was hired in the spot , manager only asked how old I was haha (16)

    Shift Leader Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Carl's Jr in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    Submit an application online, then you will have your answers processed through a program. Then, depending on the results, they will call you in for an interview. The qualifications aren't high, so just be nice and answer the question how you think they want to hear them. In my experience, if they like you, you will be hired on the spot.
    There is a good chance that you will be scheduled for an interview but the lower management might not have time and cancel. Do not worry, this happens all the time. Just come back when they tell you.

Whoever is the manager during the time that the client walks in, they explain what they need for certain positions and from then on the client fills it out.
