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

    Pros

    They were willing to work with my schedule while I was in college. Made friends fast with other co-workers, so it wasn't an entirely competitive place to work in.

    Cons

    Even if you gave the best customer service, there were always a few customers that made working here hard. Going far and beyond with your work did not guarantee a pay raise. As I was part-time, no benefits.

    Advice to Management

    I feel you should give more credit to your employees or at least give small bonuses here and there for the hard work they do.
