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

    Pros

    The staff was friendly and made it easy to learn the procedures of the restaurant. I was able to quickly learn how to be a part of the team and communicate with other teammates to do my job well.

    Cons

    Some of the fellow teammates were not eager to do a good job, which required a bit of juggling when a surge of guests came through the restaurant.

    Discounted food, that's really it...

    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.
