    I worked at Carl's Jr full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Usually flexible with shifts. I worked here while going to school and was able to keep a minimum of 40 hours a week without any difficulty.

    Cons

    Customers will argue with you for the most random of reasons and will generally be quite condescending since you're working both fast food and "retail."

    Advice to Management

    The job doesn't need to be hard but it can easily be quite frustrating and hard to handle. If everyone pulls their weight and does what needs to be done, you can have fun and keep times good.

    Pros

    I cannot think of a single pro

    Cons

    Immature management, low wages, no 401K match, no training, very little guidance. Be prepared to cya every day there. Easily the worst place I've worked in my entire working career. I was offered FT employment, just to be fired within the next 30 days, after I turned down other opportunities. I would not recommend that ANYBODY considers working here.

    Advice to Management

    I can't speak for all departments but I can say that my HR Management team was the least supportive group I have ever worked with. No training , no support or guidance.

    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.
