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

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

    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.

    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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    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...
