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

    Pros

    Positive and motivating environment. Lots of opportunities for advancement from within. Great management team. The company thrives to have extraordinary customer service, and reward you for providing it. Also the customers very much appreciate the service, and aren't afraid to let you know, which gives you a sense of pride in work. Very team driven, with hardworking crew members and supportive management.

    Cons

    At this point I don't have any cons. I was given an opportunity that others weren't offering me, even though to be honest at first at 27yrs. of age I was feeling working fast food was not enough of an accomplishment. After I became aware of all the advancement opportunities my whole outlook changed. In a few short months I have been working hard to work my way up, and I am so grateful this company is acknowledging my potential.

    Advice to Management

    I like when we have store to store or even in store competition. It's a good way to motivate the crew and keep spirits high. Keep up the good work, and I would love to see new incentive based programs implemented.

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

    Pros

    Working at Carl's Jr. as my first job was great. I started off as a cook, then learning Drive Thru and the Cash Register, I got offered the chance to move up to a Crew Trainer, and thought, hey if I can move up to this, I'm good enough to move up even more. I got promoted to Shift Manager 2 months later.

    Cons

    Having to worry about high labor, as well as having to deal with being shorthanded.

    Advice to Management

    Try to understand where Shift Managers come from when they say they are trying, having to keep Low Speed of Service, Low Waste, Low Labor, and maintain Great Customer Service is all hard to do at the same time and we try our best.
