    I have been working at Carl's Jr part-time

    Pros

    + Flexible scheduling
    + 50% discounted food when on shift, 20% otherwise
    + Generally nice people to work with

    Cons

    - Often understaffed at my location anyway, which was privately owned
    - Even in times when there is nothing to do, shift leaders will make sure you're busy restocking or cleaning something unnecessarily
    - Unorganized work environment, lousy systems led to more messed up orders than there should be

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with employees, create logical and efficient systems of doing things, keep things organized, use better menu/register software if at all possible
