    I worked at CKE Restaurants full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The HQ is pretty nice, I guess.

    Cons

    If you don't suck up... you will not succeed. Not enough new employee support, Immature management, Terrible 401K match, Must be willing to CYA every day, as you will get thrown under the bus, No training, no guidance, Worst employment experience of my working career. I would and will not ever recommend that anyone accept an offer here. I was hired after my verbal contract commitment and let go after they were done with me. I had already turned down other job offers. Just "bad business" in general. 2 months after I was let go... I get a bonus deposited into my bank account (Get it together CKE), just to have it reversed the next day... just an all around awful experience.

    Advice to Management

    Provide your employees with some stronger leadership examples. Strengthen your HR team. It is currently run like a "mean girls club"

    Pros

    Coworkers are amazing people to work with.

    Cons

    With a lot of franchising going on...no one knows if their position is safe. Moral is very low.

    They'll definitely work you and not pay you for all the work you do. Experienced it first hand.

    Upper management folks only care about how they can keep they're salary and no giving what truly due to those EE's who bust they're rear ends for them.

    Advice to Management

    Give raises where raises are due. Can expect to keep good employees without giving proper compensation.
