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

    Pros

    nice co-workers, good team bonding

    Cons

    Customers are extremely indecisive at times, and it brings the drive-thru time down by a lot. This puts a strain on the team, since we're supposed to achieve a certain time. A lot of stress comes with the job, and it only pays minimum wage despite having to be skilled in various areas.

    Advice to Management

    offer better wages, perhaps create a rule where a customer cannot order at the drive thru window...
