I worked at CKE Restaurants

Pros

Decent Salary for Fast Food
Benefits are okay
Meal Discounts 20% anytime, 50% 30 min before your shift to 30 min after
Well known on the West Coast for having big, tasty burgers

Cons

Although salary is decent for fast food, you cap off fairly quickly and raises are minimal
You can only go so far up the chain before there is no where else to go - General Manager is basically where most people aim to reach, since District Managers positions are limited.
Around the holidays be expected to work 55 hours a week.
Labor costs can be unrealistic at times

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Offer other positions in corporate office, if upward movement is not available. This may help with retention.

    Pros

    If you are looking for a job straight out of college and like to be treated inhumanely, this would be a place for you. I suppose that if you needed a job bad, they will hire you and then work you like a dog.

    Cons

    Incompetent people, no pay raises, terrible benefits. There is definitely no opportunity for growth here. All seasoned employees treat new employees like a sack of potatoes. Senior management who have been there since day one, are complete jerks. They like to fire people left and right.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest your money in your employees and not yourselves.

    Pros

    - Room for growth with the ability to move around to different departments
    - Supportive management in most departments
    - Up front CEO who invloves the staff in the companies goals and changes in the future as it pertains to their lively hood.

    Cons

    - Inconsitance between in rules and treatment of employees between offices and even departments.
    - Sometimes overwhelming workload. This is dependent on the department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Bridge the gap of inconsistanies in rules and treatment of employees in some offices or departments.
    - Establish a better work/life balance through review of different positions in the company, assesing the workload of individuals.
