    Pros

    If you enjoy working with people and you don't mind physical labor It can be a rewarding job. You will function in a fast paced enviroment 80% of the time so your work day will "fly by".

    Cons

    Your work week can exceed 60 hour on a regular basis. The company states they have a work /life balance, however the company's actions will prove that statement to be false. General managers in areas that don't have a uneducated labor force will struggle to retain employees.

    Advice to Management

    When employees follow the proper guidelines for airing greivences, they should be addressed in a manner that's fair to all parties involved.

    Pros

    Working at Carl's Jr. allows you to have a flexible schedule which is great if you are going to school.

    Cons

    You have to be prepared to stand on your feet for very long periods of time. The pay isn't great.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to rotate the employees on the different restaurant positions. For example it shouldn't be the job of one person to only work the drive thru.
