A former Packaging Associate from Bloomington, IN Shares his experience in a review published by INDEED about being part of Cook Group, which is directed by Carl Cook: I was harassed multiple times by the manager of the department I was in and the human resource personnel refused to take any action. I have spoken with several other individuals who experienced similar issues.
Supervisor (Current Employee) says"Do not work here. You will be treated like dirt and seen as numbers- management does not treat you like people with lives outside of work. They expect you to devote your time to this place and will work you past exhaustion for minimum wage. Even if you try your best it will never be good enough to satisfy management. Cons: Low wage, no work/life balance. Terrible hours."
Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee) says"Whole store is trash wouldent recommend anyone to work there the employees are disrespectful nd the management is bad and schedules are always mixed and hours are horrible Cons: Short breaks shittty managment unset schdules ect ."
Cashier/Cook (Former Employee) says"The 8056 store for carls jr. has alot of problems, first its like a constant battle between morning crew and night crew, but since the manager only works in the morning he is always on the side of morning crew so its unfair all around, they like to cut checks and hours just because they gotten mad or upset with a worker. Amd the way they cook their beyond meat is absolutely wrong since they cook it on the same charboiler as the regular meat, cross contaminating every beyond meat their is."
Team Leader (Former Employee) says"This is a given...but Employees are not appreciated! Managers don’t care about you no matter if you are one of the most hard working employees because to them you are replaceable and they don’t care about anybody but themselves. And to be promoted, it’s not worth it. The pay is low for the amount of stress and work you have to go through. Cons: Everything else"
General Manager (GM) says"No training, no support from management. Managers working over 80hrs weekly with no HR support. Underpaid staff members so there is a high turnover. Lack of leadership. Cons: Worst managed franchise I’ve ever worked for."
CSR (Former Employee) says"I hated working here. It was awful, and I hated every day that I worked there. We got very limited pay, and awful hours where they worked you to the bone."
Crew Member (Former Employee) says"Alot of the staff members are rude and disrespectful the pay not even worth the amount of work you have to put in everyone brings their problems into work regardimg their personal life there are no secrets everyone is rude and mean the customers are nice but the staff say disrespectful words behind their backs i don't recommend anyone working here as it is cruel place to work with staff get angry if you say no to swapping a shift, staff becpme threatning and name calling if you enjoyed being a victim of bullying then feel free to join here im currently in therapy because of the staff at that work place Cons: Pay not worth the amount of work you put in"
Cashier (Former Employee) says"Checks were just $20 or last time it was $5 they say it’s based on performance but yet they don’t take the time to teach you One of the managers there is a racist she treated me differently because I was Mexican that’s how I felt and it caused me to feel like I was unwanted and worthless so I quit before I did something I would regret also mostly every shift they called me to take the day off Cons: Everything"
Shift Manager/Cashier (Current Employee) says"this place will fully drain you , you will never make it to the top ,too much favoritism ,they will overwork you and you can never spend time with your family Cons: Its just a job not a career and you are replaceable"
Shift Supervisor (Former Employee) says"In total I have worked for Carls Jr. for three years and it was a terrible experience through and through. The management is terrible, and you do not feel secure and safe at your job. You do not only receive constant disrespect from customers but consistently from staff and upper management as well. This compact constantly breaks policy and provides zero respect for staff. They allow employees to get away with blatant racism and zero effort, while others are expected to provide the impossible. -1000000/10, would not recommend and will never find myself employed by Carl's Jr. again. They allow upper management to hire siblings and instantly provide raises/promotions. MASSIVE HR VIOLATIONS Cons: Everything."
Cashier (Current Employee) says"Horrible place to work, manager was horrible, never gave me hours even though I was one of the more liked workers there. All the machines are old and nasty. Cons: Horrible Management"
Crew Leader/Supervisor (Former Employee) says"its a place to get some work experience then get out. Not much potential here. It was ok while I was there but not something I'd do for long........."
Customer Service (Former Employee) says"The interviews made it seems like an incredible, open minded, multicultural and multi age work place that accepted anyone and everyone. Older workers cost more and quickly the older workers numbers diminished and now it's almost entirely run by 16 year olds. They were incredibly disorganised with who knew what, expected you to know everything after your first shift and were visibly mad if you had to ask questions. Cons: Horrible workplace environment"
Assistant General Manager (Former Employee) says"90% of employees are actively using illicit drugs on the job and/ or drinking alcohol. Cons: Unsafe, unsanitary, unethical"
Crew Member (Casual) says"Staff were constantly made to feel on the outside of the clique, those that didn't fit in were complained about to managers to the point managers believed the complaints without verifying their validity. The managers were always bickering and complaining to crew about each other and their pay. The standards of service also differed from manager to manager, and cleaning tasks were only done depending on how soon an audit or inspection was to take place. Customers are constantly complained about and mocked by all management and most crew. Routinely made to wait before clocking on and sent home early was very uncommon to work what was on the roster. Roster's were most of the time copy and pasted from week to week, if they had to be changed they were not published until saturday or sunday before the start of the next week, leading to managers complaining about staff being unreliable as they told them they were rostered shifts they could not work. Crew were treated as a burden by members of management. Some crew were given perks others were not, such as free food or soda so long as members of management didn't see it, others were told that it was theft and they would be given warnings if it was done again. There was very minimal training given, crew trained crew and were picked apart by managers who had no involvement in the training of crew. Cons: pretty much everything else."
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) says"It's fast food, there's not much to expect. You get belittled by customers on a daily basis and management expect you to just adapt to it, like you're not a human being with any sort of self confidence. If you love being treated like trash, this is the job for you! Cons: Lol"
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) says"Company does not care about workers what so ever! If you can work literally anywhere else, do it. They will fire you first chance they get anyway. As an assistant manager I would have gotten a better paycheck stocking shelves at a grocery store. You are constantly on call and your hours will be cut if you dont come in on a hour notice. The schedule changes every week with no thought to the employees loves or appointments. Cons: Every day you walk in to start a shift."
Cook/Cashier (Former Employee) says"Full of drama the assistant manager lies her way out of problems , always starts shading people and targeting them as liers with their health conditions. The manager believing her and making everyone uncomfortable. She brings her kids to the restaurant and they put dirty diapers and blankets on the tables . I worked at the one on 104th Colorado it’s really bad and they would make us give old food just because we were low on stock and the management was terrible. Only 2 cooks on a busy day and none of the shift leaders would help Cons: Drama"
Atención a clientes (Former Employee) says"Son una empresa muy explotadora y elitista no tienen un horario fijo"
Food Handler (Former Employee) says"It’s horrible to work in this place. It’s very unsanitized, coworkers are very rude, managers are extremely rude as well, and their hours suck. I would never work here"
