    Pros

    Especially at a 24 hour store they are able to accommodate for different life styles. Especially if you are a student this would be a great job to have while you do school at the same time.

    Cons

    It is very fast paced and it is not for everyone.

  2. its a very good job

    Pros

    Working at Carl's Jr. as my first job was great. I started off as a cook, then learning Drive Thru and the Cash Register, I got offered the chance to move up to a Crew Trainer, and thought, hey if I can move up to this, I'm good enough to move up even more. I got promoted to Shift Manager 2 months later.

    Cons

    Having to worry about high labor, as well as having to deal with being shorthanded.

    Advice to Management

    Try to understand where Shift Managers come from when they say they are trying, having to keep Low Speed of Service, Low Waste, Low Labor, and maintain Great Customer Service is all hard to do at the same time and we try our best.

    Pros

    Good people to work with. Very flexible schedule.

    Cons

    The pay was alright, and some of the other managers thought they were my boss even though they're not. And it was always hot!

    Advice to Management

    Fire the ones you don't need.

    Pros

    Gives you something to do and it's fun to cook food and make hamburgers and lurking new things about food and safety laws

    Cons

    Pays minimum wage some customers can be mean at times you just got to push it to the side and just smile and wave

    Pros

    It is easy to move up in the company, easy to learn the job, discounts.

    Cons

    Very strict in regulations, once you more up it is not a very big pay raise, only 25 cents. They ask for impossible goals, constant changes. It is okay for a while, but nobody wants to work fast food for their whole life.

    Advice to Management

    Start caring more about your workers. Carl's Jr doesn't provide any services to it's employees besides free food cards and discounts. One person, front or back, works as many positions, we deserve a little bit more than minimum wage and discounts.

  11. Apply only if it will be temporary.

    Pros

    - You have to multi-task! At the drive thru because there is only 1 window. So, while you're taking Person B's order at the drive-thru, you're preparing their drinks and inputting it in the screen. Simultaneously you are also charging Person A at the window and handing them their drinks and order.
    - Always walk around cleaning, checking up on customers, etc.
    - You get paid (IF the checks get mailed in time because they don't offer direct deposit)

    Cons

    - They expect you to be FULLY devoted to the customer. No lie. I got in trouble for not welcoming a customer as soon as they were at the door while I was taking someone's order. Like, really?
    - Upper management is not kind and are stuck up.

    Advice to Management

    Don't treat this like a prestigious restaurant, it's ONLY fast food!
