    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.

  3. Very enjoyable place of employment.

    Pros

    Positive and motivating environment. Lots of opportunities for advancement from within. Great management team. The company thrives to have extraordinary customer service, and reward you for providing it. Also the customers very much appreciate the service, and aren't afraid to let you know, which gives you a sense of pride in work. Very team driven, with hardworking crew members and supportive management.

    Cons

    At this point I don't have any cons. I was given an opportunity that others weren't offering me, even though to be honest at first at 27yrs. of age I was feeling working fast food was not enough of an accomplishment. After I became aware of all the advancement opportunities my whole outlook changed. In a few short months I have been working hard to work my way up, and I am so grateful this company is acknowledging my potential.

    Advice to Management

    I like when we have store to store or even in store competition. It's a good way to motivate the crew and keep spirits high. Keep up the good work, and I would love to see new incentive based programs implemented.

    I have been working at Carl's Jr

    Pros

    Working here is very easy,I've been working at Carl's Jr for about 4 weeks now and during the time I've been very accepted and all the employees have been very nice. The manager's/shift leaders are very nice and help out a lot,whenever I need any help with anything I just ask and they show me what to do.when your working you get free drinks and also a 50% discount on your food (amazing discount).the shifts are good and busy,sometimes someone can't come In and I pull a double witch is VERY good for me so I can get more hours.

    Cons

    I work at a loves Carl's Jr witch means I have to deal with truckers,some are nice but others are just as rude as can be. At the register whenever someone wants to change or just wipe there order you need the manager/shift leaders code and password witch is VERY annoying when you deal with people that are just saying the want something and then they want another,just not knowing what to get so I have to call the manager/shift leader about 3-7 times every 30min witch makes me look bad and look like I don't know what I'm doing.

    Advice to Management

    Take the manager lock from deleting an order!
