    I worked at Carl's Jr full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Very flexible, Paid Time Off, Great Food

    Cons

    A lot of changes to policies. Some managers not too nice to crew members.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reducing the script due to too many customers giving dirty looks or complaining about all the upselling and sounding like flight attendants. (Guest actually told me that).
