    Pros

    Working here is very easy,I've been working at Carl's Jr for about 4 weeks now and during the time I've been very accepted and all the employees have been very nice. The manager's/shift leaders are very nice and help out a lot,whenever I need any help with anything I just ask and they show me what to do.when your working you get free drinks and also a 50% discount on your food (amazing discount).the shifts are good and busy,sometimes someone can't come In and I pull a double witch is VERY good for me so I can get more hours.

    Cons

    I work at a loves Carl's Jr witch means I have to deal with truckers,some are nice but others are just as rude as can be. At the register whenever someone wants to change or just wipe there order you need the manager/shift leaders code and password witch is VERY annoying when you deal with people that are just saying the want something and then they want another,just not knowing what to get so I have to call the manager/shift leader about 3-7 times every 30min witch makes me look bad and look like I don't know what I'm doing.

    Advice to Management

    Take the manager lock from deleting an order!

    Pros

    The managers and district managers really care about employees. Very team oriented.

    It does not matter how many good things you do, one bad thing and that's all they remember. Not strict on employees (with their behavior, following company rules, etc.)

    Advice to Management

    Follow up with employees. You should not be keeping employees that are harmful to your business.
