    Pros

    40% while working. In terms of fast-food, it is actually pretty decent. All my coworkers were really nice, and I hope they jumped ship as fast as they were able to.

    Cons

    Pretty much everything Carl's Jr. runs its business in a way that is antithesis to my ideals-kindness, customer service, etc. I feel like 2nd graders could do their jobs for them because all of the top-management decisions made no sense whatsoever.

    Advice to Management

    Stop using sexist commercials in an attempt to brand yourself as some "manly establishment". It's disgusting and it also doesn't make sense. A lot of Mcdonald's revenue comes from catering themselves to children and their tired. over-worked moms. You're not going to get that share of the market with your lazy commercials.

    Pros

    Flexilbe hours, specially since I was a student at the time.

    Cons

    The one I worked at was an independently owed restaurant and the manager was the worst at making his employees feel appreciated. worked there for almost 3 years and got a 25 cent raise, when I knew how to do everything from cooking at all shifts, drive thru, register, register count ins and outs, etc. I was more than a shift mananger, pretty much assistant but never got promoted. The owner didn't want to give any raises.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your employees, specially those that show drive to go up the chain.
