    Pros

    You get 50% off when you work otherwise it's only 20% The cashiers are kinda friendly but the cooks and management are rude

    Cons

    You never get a raise- I worked there for 4 years and never got one Management and corporate treat you like crap You never get a break- even though you're required by law to get a 30 minute break Very short staffed because corporate wants to save labor- so you get worked to death Huge turn over rate because everyone who works there hates it and quits

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating your employees like crap

    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

    This was my first job after graduating from high school and it was an okay job. I really enjoyed working with the rest of the employees, some were very helpful. I was able to get decent hours when business was good, ranging from 30-38 hours.

    Cons

    I felt as though the store was a little bit unorganized, but maybe that's how most fast food places work. One of my managers were not very helpful and hostile towards me from the very beginning. Management had favorites, which was understandable for the most part. I also really really dislike handling the drive thru and the front line. Sometimes both ends would get busy and I'm the only person for both stations. It was stressful enough to keep my drive-thru line within the time limit but when I started tending customers in the front line, it got even more chaotic. If you're new, it's very rare that you'll get major Holidays off because your pay is much cheaper than someone who's been there for a couple of years.

    Advice to Management

    Be more involved with your stores. I never saw a person from corporate visit us in all the 7 months that I worked for Carl's Jr.

    It is really hot to work in a fast food joint in the summer. Not enough pay to support my family.

    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

    Great guests and crew. Excellent HR department. Better job if you work for CKE corporate since benefits are much improved.

    Cons

    Ownership changed three times in 15 months. Corporate sold most of their stores off to franchises in Texas. With that came dramatic changes in benefits and upper management style. This is actually th second time that CKE has sold the majority of their stores in Texas. New owners are MIH and the majority of GM's either left or were terminated within a few months. Good luck if they are in the process of buying your store.

    Advice to Management

    Do like some of the better managed brands are doing now. Corporate should build stores in high population density markets with good per capita income. Build those stores to be your ambassadors to grow your brand. Grow at conservative paces that protect the company and it's investors.
