    It's fast food, pretty straight forward stuff. Not everyone's dream.

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    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.

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

    Pros

    Good place to learn what a fast-paced workplace is like.
    Learning to work with customers was a plus.

    Cons

    Management wasn't that great.
    Many employees were unprofessional.
    People were not always there to work.
    Training wasn't great.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management would be to screen the shift leaders so that you know for sure what they are doing when managers aren't there. Also, come up with a better training process that teaches new hires how to do their job.

    I worked at Carl's Jr (More than a year)

    Pros

    Worked at a campus Carl's Jr., so we didn't have the full menu. The managers and shift leaders really set the example and did their best to follow all the guidelines. There was no compromise in quality and service.

    Cons

    Audits seemed really impossible, especially since we were a campus Carl's Jr. We didn't receive all the new equipment that most Carl's Jrs. had.

    Advice to Management

    Set high standards, and do not compromise. Try to relate to your employees, but at the same time, do not allow them to step all over you.
