I worked at Carl's Jr full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Very flexible, Paid Time Off, Great Food

Cons

A lot of changes to policies. Some managers not too nice to crew members.

Advice to Management

Reducing the script due to too many customers giving dirty looks or complaining about all the upselling and sounding like flight attendants. (Guest actually told me that).

    I worked at Carl's Jr full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The pay was average and I enjoy working for customers

    Cons

    They have one trainer responsible for training all incoming managers and she cannot focus and properly train with so many people she is responsible for. The training program is a joke. Cheap on labor and horrible absence of tools (a dish washer, label gun, proper timers to name a few) that could help crew and reduce costs, even labor, in the restaurant. Managers do not have it easy either with their dinosaur computer methods for ordering products and counting inventory. Workers are extremely stressed and unfriendly, what they call "scripting" frusterates a lot of quests but if you don't do it u could be fired. There is a lack of team work because all employees are too busy on their individual stations to accomplish much. They have no set prep person or maintenance and employees are expected to do these tasks along with their regular tasks throughout the day, and god forbid something runs out even if all employees have been extremely busy all day taking care of guests and orders you get reprimanded.

    Advice to Management

    Your in a new market. That's difficult I know. But listen to employees and management for ideas on what would help business move smoother and make them happy. Employees who are happy and not over stressed make customers happy. Invest in items that will help business and employees like a dishwasher especially in stores who's sales are over 30k a week. A label gun will save a lot of labor from employees having to fill out 100+ labels daily by hand. Invest in food storage pans- that saran wrap is difficult when your trying to be fast.

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

    Pros

    Fast paced, Co-workers are friendly, Decent first job, Immediate job security

    Cons

    Hours/days are crap: I only get 4 and a half hours, one day a week even after working here for 3 months; Feels like certain employees get more hours than others; Over staffed

    Advice to Management

    Please reconsider how you hire people. It seems that people get hired left and right just to move out other employees (high turn over rate).
