    I worked at CKE Restaurants full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The Carpinteria headquarters sits on a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean and the Channel Islands. The spectacular views are enjoyed from the executives' offices.

    Cons

    Corporate professionals are often paid as if they were hourly restaurant workers, who were paid barely over minimum wage.

    I worked at CKE Restaurants full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Hours are standard for managers and most restaurants are in good locations. Customer service should always be the priority at all restaurants

    Cons

    Company does not value the frontline employees that deal one on one with their base customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to team members and watch what talent you lose.

    I have been working at CKE Restaurants

    Pros

    The office sits right on the pacific ocean so you get a nice view from the back of the building.

    Cons

    Zero feedback regarding your performance or ability to advance or take on additional responsibilities beyond your own position. No reviews and poor raises and bonus

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    good riddance

    I have been working at CKE Restaurants

    Pros

    Beautiful location, easy commute to work. Not expected to put in 60 hour work weeks.

    Cons

    Little room for advancement. Lack of communication from upper management. Seems many people have been hired because they're related to someone in upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a quarterly company meeting with an open forum format to get feedback from your employees.

    No opinion of CEO
