    I worked at Carl's Jr part-time

    Pros

    Met a lot of new people, who I am still currently friends with. Gained new skills such as customer service.

    Cons

    Worked the graveyard shift while still in High School. Would spend my whole weekend Friday-Sunday working. Management was all over the place. Would ask to work 12+ hour shifts.

    Advice to Management

    Understand to the people that are still in High school that they can't work all the time. And give the workers a weekend off from time to time. We all have families, and we all have things to get done outside of work sometimes.
