    Pros

    Good place to learn what a fast-paced workplace is like. Learning to work with customers was a plus.

    Cons

    Management wasn't that great. Many employees were unprofessional. People were not always there to work. Training wasn't great.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management would be to screen the shift leaders so that you know for sure what they are doing when managers aren't there. Also, come up with a better training process that teaches new hires how to do their job.

    I worked at Carl's Jr full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The very best thing about Carl's was the comradery. A lot of the people are in a similar situation to your own, so its easy to relate to your coworkers. We really had some great people at this particular Carl's. The manager was like a mother to us.

    Cons

    The regional manager/ partial owner was eccentric, and had a hard time expressing his concerns in a positive manner. So most of his visits stressed the employees out. Other than that, the job itself was stressful in general.

    Advice to Management

    The general manager is great. The upper management and the owners should raise the labor percentage allowance to lower the stress level of the employees.

    Pros

    Nice starting out salary. The corporate company was awesome to work for. Met a lot of great managers and learned new experience.

    Cons

    Bonus structure wasn't that great and trying to get the info for the bonus was impossible, our DM couldn't give us the information for It. Also some district managers in our area were horrible .

    Advice to Management

    Get new district managers! Make sure general managers are given the bonus structure when they start so they know what they are working towards .
