    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.

    Former Employee - Cashier
    Former Employee - Cashier

    I worked at Carl's Jr

    Pros

    Coworkers are great
    Works well with your schedule
    Easy lunch access
    Ability to move up
    Managers are super nice and helpful

    Cons

    Like all other fast food, you can get pretty smelly and greasy feeling
    The food is easy access=easy way of getting fat
    Need to get a 95% or higher on a secret shopper or get chewed out (atleast where I worked)
    The head manager was pretty mean and never smiled, couldn't even say hi to him
    Pay sucks! Raise only if you move up in position
    Keeping drive time low

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be nicer to your workers. We are hard workers and we try really hard to get perfect scores on your secret shoppers, give a smile once in a while.
