    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

    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.

    Pros

    Some of my co-workers were very friendly and I've met some great friends here. They worked with my school schedule.

    Cons

    I work graveyard shift weekends as a cook. We are understaffed and overworked. We have to clean extra things even though we don't have enough people for it. Manager complains to the wrong people and doesn't appreciate our work.


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

    Cons

    Co workers & treated with no respect

    Advice to Management

    Well when I first started working at Carl's I wS super excited since it was my first actual job, but as I started my first day everybody was so rude to me I was getting yelled at left to right making me feel worthless and useless I thought maybe this is only happening because it's my first day but I was wrong it's my second week working there and I hate it more than anything my days just keep getting worst & worst. the manager has her favorites treats others with more respect than myself. I try being nice being friendly with my coworkers but it just comes back to bite me in the butt. I Do the job correct like the way they tell me to do it but then they yell at me saying I'm doing it wrong and send me somewhere else. Shift leaders are always making me do the dirty work ( clean the bathrooms toilets urine sink floor, take out trash, clean the diner, the soda machines) I badically feel like Cinderella! No one should be treated the way I'm being treated working at Carl's so I reccomend not applying at Carl's jr in vineland and Mongolia in California!
