    I have been working at Carrols part-time (Less than a year)

    Help the team cooperate more and produce food at an even pace.

    I worked at Carrols full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company loves to promote from within, and if you're a hard worker there's a good chance you'll get a promotion fairly quickly.

    Cons

    In order to meet certain expectations the GM and AGM would have to put in a lot of extra time. This time was never compensated for because both are on salary pay. The 50 hours a week they tell you when you take the salary position could easily turn into a 70 or 80 hour a week job if you allow it.

    Pros

    Weekly pay, phenomenal bonus program, chance to learn from mistakes, growth opportunities, all employees are eligible for vacation time!
