More Pros and Cons

  1. "Work Load"

    I have been working at Carl's Jr (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    As well as being a full-time shift leader, I was also a full time college student and the general manager always worked around my schedule.

    Cons

    For being a shift leader, you have a lot more responsibilities as opposed to the crew members yet you only get paid a few cents more..

    Advice to Management

    Having such a small crew does not benefit the store production.

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

    Pros

    Best pro is weaker fast food chain; less busy for similar wage to others. Advancements are false promises.

    Cons

    Management hierarchy is very sub standard. Problems don't get fixed even when urgent in timely manner. Avoid for better help.
