    I have been working at CKE Restaurants full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    This review applies to the Anaheim location: Nice people, flexible work schedule, laid back atmosphere, decent vacation/sick hours, paid holidays, education reimbursement (not much, but better than nothing), no performance reviews, free beverages and co-workers love to bring food to share.

    CKE is a great learning experience...you will be exposed to the good, bad and ugly of a burger operation. If you are a current student, recent grad, reentering the workforce or just want a job, you will fit in just fine.

    Cons

    Compensation package - Wages are below average, no 401k matching and medical is EXPENSIVE. Raises are not automatic and if you do get one, it's not much. High turnover, especially in certain departments. Low morale. Department policies and procedures are not in writing. Too much finger point when things go wrong. Systems and processes are manual and outdated. Management can be reactionary instead of proactive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please invest in your support staff and hourly workers. They are just as valuable as supervisors and managers. If you can't give healthy raises, there are other incentives to boost morale and productivity. It's time to demote and/or get rid of toxic managers because they are walking landmines and do nothing, but cost the company money and talent.

    PS - Please allocate a little more $$$ for future Christmas parties. It doesn't speak well that enough food was not prepared for all the employees that attended and we all had to wait in line for 30 minutes.
