    Working here I got to understand how to be multitask working in a fast paced environment.

    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

    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

    Pros

    nice co-workers, good team bonding

    Cons

    Customers are extremely indecisive at times, and it brings the drive-thru time down by a lot. This puts a strain on the team, since we're supposed to achieve a certain time. A lot of stress comes with the job, and it only pays minimum wage despite having to be skilled in various areas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    offer better wages, perhaps create a rule where a customer cannot order at the drive thru window...

    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 (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Met long life friends here, fun atmosphere but it depends on your co-workers and if they like you. Had great regular customers who became friends as well. Schedule was way flexible, but good for those going to school full-time and enjoyed the discount on occasion.

    Cons

    If day was slow, was sent home early, i.e. if working 6 hours and then working only 4 instead. Had a strict DM who considered other workers who've worked only a few months to be a shift leader than those who've been there longer and had more experience. When it does get busy and everyone goes home from being sent home early, got customers to complain why there isn't more help. there's always part time positions, never full time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider a possible raise for those who get good reviews from secret shopper more than once, make sure whoever gets hired are reliable enough that if they can't work there anymore or found another job to contact whoever is in charge. That has happened more than once and then the restaurant gets short staffed and get more complaints from customers when it's busy.
