    I worked at Carl's Jr part-time

    Pros

    Discounted food while you work. Discounted food while you aren't working. Great first job. Great team to work for.

    Cons

    Could better train their employees. But there really isn't much bad about working at Carl's. My bosses were great

    Advice to Management

    You should better train your staff that's coming in and hope to make sure they will want to stay. Your training is good but lacking.

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

    Pros

    Discounted food, that's really it...

    Cons

    Bad training, bad pay, bad hours, bad food

    Advice to Management

    Train employees better, don't unexplainably drop hours to unreasonable levels.

    I worked at Carl's Jr full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Usually flexible with shifts. I worked here while going to school and was able to keep a minimum of 40 hours a week without any difficulty.

    Cons

    Customers will argue with you for the most random of reasons and will generally be quite condescending since you're working both fast food and "retail."

    Advice to Management

    The job doesn't need to be hard but it can easily be quite frustrating and hard to handle. If everyone pulls their weight and does what needs to be done, you can have fun and keep times good.
