    Pros

    Great and fun staff to work with, good hours and flexible with them.

    Hectic and Frustrating. Corporate isn't too caring of their employees.

    Pros

    It's easy to get more hours working at Carl's Jr. If you work really hard you can rack up about 30-40 hours in one week.

    Cons

    Corporate is really strict when it comes to scripting and regulations. The scripting cards are long and ridiculous. They try to enforce scripting that nobody will do.

    I worked at Carl's Jr part-time

    Pros

    Good pay, co-workers were nice and fun to work with
    Manager and shift leaders were very kind
    relatively flexible hours
    opportunities to move up if you worked hard

    Cons

    Corporate was very rude when they would come in for review
    Customers could be difficult to please, but that comes with any fast food job

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set goals that should be accomplished by the end of the day, week, or month

    I have been working at Carl's Jr full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Most employees are very nice, fairly good flexibility, easy to get hired, good about giving requested days off if in advance, discount on food, you can socialize with customers and get to know them, the environment is usually an upbeat and happy one.

    Cons

    Lots of gossip amongst workers, favoritism, some spanish speaking workers don't understand you or cant communicate with you or pretend not to understand you, some co-workers are very lazy and don't keep up on cleaning tasks as asked or told, there are very high expectations that realistically can't be met. Some things just take too long to cook especially during rush hours. You don't have enough time to get the store up and running in the morning. They give you 30 min before doors open to get everything up and running and they want you out 45 min after close. This is impossible. Then you get lectured and treated poorly when you don't meet these expectations. If you arent meeting your labor requirements you have to send people home. you may have no choice but to work with 2 people in the front and 2 people in the kitchen and then you are also expected to keep everything clean and orders out on time. How can you do this with one person cooking burgers, one person running fries and the green burrito line? And one person in drive thru and one to run the front for walk-in customers? It's not possible. Its very stressful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'd love to see the people who set these guidelines and rules to come in and run the floor under these circumstances, like in undercover boss. I bet you'd realize how unrealistic your expectations are. Maybe you'd appreciate and understand your employees more.

    I worked at Carl's Jr

    Pros

    Good food and it was a great way to start off working here because I had a chance to learn a lot about customer service and working as a cashier.

    Cons

    Pay is not very good and raises are hard to get here. Its more a stepping stone for experience.

    Telling your employees they did a good job is just as important as telling them they need to improve.

    flexible schedules, awesome food for lunch at 50% disc =)

    Cons

    very fast-paced and are constantly pressured by time, need to keep smiles on even when not feeling them, always come out smelling like grease

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    communicate with employees more often and share your goals with us because sometimes we are clueless of what is going on...
