    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Carl's Jr.

    Interview

    Applied online, then I went into the store to introduce myself. I went in about 3 or 4 times in a month since the manager wasn't there all those times. After going in so often I practically knew everyone and was given an appointment by a shift leader to speak to the boss. At the boss' meeting he asked me two questions and gave my papers to sign and finally told me to come ready to work 2 days later.

    Crew Member/Cashier Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Carl's Jr (Los Angeles, CA) in June 2012.

    Interview

    I had my interview with the Assistant Manager and that was the only time I ever saw him as he was getting trained to become a General Manager for another store. It was a one-on-one interview, which is good.

    The interview started promptly on time. The AM was very very friendly and made me feel comfortable the entire time. I didn't actually start working there 3 weeks after my interview because the GM was on vacation or just couldn't be bothered to process my hire.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Since this is a fast food chain, there wasn't much room for negotiation. Their wages are set unless you're super amazing, but if you are, there's no need for Carl's Jr.

    Application

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

    Interview

    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

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Carl's Jr (Los Angeles, CA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    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.

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

    Interview

    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)

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Carl's Jr in August 2013.

    Interview

    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.
