    Pros

    Schedule flexibility, opportunity for pleasant work environment, fast paced, never dull.

    Cons

    Like most other customer service jobs, you get the occasional rude guest, cranky co-worker, or list of unreasonable expectations. Also, the pay rate isn't even close to being directly proportionate to the amount of work you put in or the exhaustion you experience.

    I have been working at Carl's Jr part-time (more than 3 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

  9. If this is your first job, do some research on the store you're applying for. Ask for benefits.
