Advertised Hours of Operation Not Honored

I went to Carl's Jr. for breakfast. I took the time to look up their advertised hours of operation specifically for the store I went to. 6am was what was advertised on the website and Hours of Operation sign hanging visibly in front.

No one in store. I dialed the number listed on the website. No answer. Employees pull up shortly after 6am. Tell me that store doesn't open until 630 am. I asked why when your advertised hours of operation state otherwise.

Again, no reason of explanation. Just walked in and locked the door behind them. I left. I decided not to return to this specific location and any other location. Will go to competition that can honor their advertised hours of operation in the future.

Horrible Company Values

As an update Carl's Jr. has done away with its slutty burger ads, and now are trying to play it off as Carl Je did that while Carl Sr was away. I think it's just BS now that they're trying to down play it publically. Their name is completely soiled to me. I will NEVER eat there regardless of how much time has passed because I know at one point they were profiting off of objectifying women and by squeezing that filth into our childrens minds. Carl's Jr. And Hardee's are full of disgusting, sexist pigs that should burn in hell.

Children

m beyond tired of having these slutty, raunchy Carls Jr ads shoved in my family's and my face...I have 3 young children at home and throughout the years have had to either have them advert their eyes when your disgusting and perverse Carls Jr ads would come on, or I would have to turn channel. My husband even turns the channel when the kids aren't even home. With this new threesome burger ad, my husband and I have made the decision to cancel our cable subscription all together. It's not worth it. No parent should have to monitor channels considered family friendly, such as TBS, not because of the shows that are on, BUT BECAUSE OF THE SLEAZY COMMERCIALS. It's sad really that a fast food chain has to demoralize women to sell their food. McDonalds makes millions more than Carls Jr, yet I've never seen them stoop even near the level that Carls Jr does to sell their product. We have not been to a Carls Jr restaurant for many years because of this, and now are taking measures to eliminate this unwanted and violating filth from entering our home. Absolutely disgusting.

Children

It's clear after reading all of these complaints that the company and CEO are nothing but childish immature boys who will never grow into men. Women don't look like that and you are setting unrealistic expectations for boys and hurting little girls self esteem in the future. Grow a set and man up and actually set a good example by not having half naked sexdriven commercials. Nobody even likes your food and your commercials just make me want to barf. Grow up.

Carls Jr OVERLY SWEET burgers

Your burgers used to be the best in town. Now they don't even taste like hamburgers. Fried hot dogs and potato chips in a burger? Oh, but wait lets throw some gas station cheese on top of that too! If you aren't slopping syrupy sweet sauce on it at every opportunity, you are throwing sweet pickles in it and then using a hamburger bun that has so much sugar in it, it tastes like you are eating a burger on a donut!. Burgers should not be sweet!. Your ketchup is super sweet, Your bbq sauce is overly sweet, your pulled pork in sugar sauce is overly sweet, your bourbon sauce is overly sweet....etc. Its getting out of hand. Whats with the new buns? Does someone honestly think that people need their hamburgers to taste like dessert? Its like whoever is coming up with these ideas has a toddler pallet and is a sugar addict. Nothing ruins a good burger faster than sweet pickles, sweet ketchup, sweet bbq sauce and sweet buns...all on the same burger. You have become the laughing stock of the burger world and now the only people that are eating your food are the stoners with the munchies, sitting at home getting off on your disgusting sexist and entirely inappropriate commercials. Its almost like its being done on purpose. "let see how many different syrupy goopy flavors we can pile on this burger and as long as its "big and sweet and gooey" they'll eat it. We now travel 20 miles out of town to eat at Red Robin. As for the commercials....someone in your advertising dept, or whoever is in control over what is shown has some serious psychological issues. Hate women much? Lets demoralize them on TV. I can't imagine any female ever feeling good about herself while working at your company knowing how you devalue them.

You are ruining and reinforcing the evil in our society

Dear Carl's Jr. standard beef "company",
I hate you. You are teaching and reinforcing in our nation how the hypersexualization of women is ok and good and normal. Sex is not bad. Women controlling their sexuality is not bad. However, my enemies, this is hypersexualization and it is not fair that the public has no control over the content they watch. This is too much. You need to think about the consequences. You are making little girls sick and little boys perverts. Be responsible. Think of the impact you actually could have.

Stop complaining about their commercials

They're real problem is that if you order a burger that's discountinged they just give you another one with telling you. This has happened multiple times. STOP LYING TO YOUR CUSTOMERS

Carl's Jr. Commercials are offensive

I feel completely outraged by these sexist commercials that Carl's Jr. has been making. They are blatantly sexist, offensive, and disgusting. There is no excuse for this type of advertisement. Something must be done.

No more commercials

My family and friends love the taste of Carl's Jr above many others but until the commercials are more creative without the sexual innuendos or other offensive material, to say the least, we have declined the support of this company.

Commercial about Partial Birth Abortion

There is a commercial against Russ Feingold that talks about dismembering baby bodies. I know the shock factor that they are after, but they have completely crossed the line! I have seen the commercial several times now at all times of the day. I teach 2nd graders and I can just imagine one of them running to their parents crying, "Mommy, Daddy, did you hear they are cutting babies heads, arms and legs off!!" The commercial is disgusting (and I know that's their intent), but in my opinion it's a terribly inappropriate way to try and get their message across and should be CENSORED! If it absolutely has to be shown it should not be before 8:00 P.M!

Carl's Junior Commercials

I used to prefer Carl's Junior to other burger chains, and my husband loves their breakfast sandwiches. I went about once a week during grad school. However, we have not been to Carls since 2013, when we noticed the obscene, suggestive, and degrading commercials they were choosing to air. We no longer have cable, and even though Carl's Jr is opening a new location in our town, we won't be giving them our money. Commercials like this directly contribute to degradation and violence towards women, and send an extremely unhealthy message towards boys and men about who they are supposed to be and what they should expect: women are pieces of meat to be acted upon, and you aren't a man if you believe otherwise. No wonder we have a problem with sex trafficking and sexual abuse in this country. Sorry Carl's-not my kids. Not my family. I can't believe they are allowed to air these commercials on public television. There needs to be some serious consequences for the people responsible for shoving this unwanted filth in the faces of little kids and respectable human beings.

Sexist ads

I am one of many who are boycotting Carl's Jr for their continued horrible ads. They are isolating half of the planet and are not family friendly and extremely offensive. I will be happy when all Carl's Jr restaurants are closed. BAD marketing campaign. Making this world worse than it already is. Spreading the word, boycott Carl's Jr!!!!!!!!!!!

Commercials

I agree with complaints about the latest commercials. Don't want my kids to watch those women in their attire nor how they eat their burgers, nor do I want to watch. I won't be eating at Carls again. Give me a break, GUYS!

No morals

If you think those sex commercials sell your food come to my town . I am surprised you don't shut it down . Most of the time -a lot of the time you have no business. Why would I eat at a place that thinks a hard biscuit nasty tasty egg using sex would appeal to anyone. I hope you guys loses your asses. I can't believe anyone would let their daughters work there. Years a go it use to be a family style place to go I know I worked there. It is a disgrace and where is the FCC? I will stick to Culvers and Steak n Shake

Sexualized Food?!

The commercials are utterly disgusting, and if only scare away most of your straight female customers. Having three women in bra and underwear eating a bacon burger and talking about a three way? That repulsed me. These commercials don't make me want to go buy food from you guys, it makes me disgusted. Disrespect towards women, objectifying women, and causing men to only view women as a sex object. These women are of course willing to expose their body like this because they are getting paid. These commercials are not about the food, it's about the women's body and your way to make the world a more corrupt world than it already is. Come on Carl's Jr. Try to attract all of your customers, not just a portion of your customers (which isn't even working because a lot of men have a partner so your commercials are only scaring away possible customers.) I love your food but I would rather spend my money on a wholesome company. Thank you. :)

Awful

Why does Carl's feel they need to take their commercial to the limit edge? They are the only food chain that goes to suggestive and soft porn to sell their food. I'm embarrassed for myself and my kids to watch this filth, or change the channel every time your commercial plays. These are after 10pm spots. I still ate at your restaurant until this last commercial. The three way is just too much.

Degrading Women

If you want to sell food stop showing these degrading commercials. Because until then my family and I will not be eating at your restaurants anymore. And I encourage anyone else who is tired of seeing these commercials on local stations to stop eating at this restaurant chain. You may enjoy your commercials and the response you get, but I don't care for my family or me will never eat at your restaurants until you stop airing these commercials.

Carl's Jr. advertising

for years this company has advertised their food that pertains more to porn and degrading women then it does food. I will never eat Carl's Jr. because of what they advertise makes me wonder how they hire personnel as well and treat them. kind of curious as to if this company is fast food or a sex shop their commercials are unbelievably disgusting and I can't believe they don't read reviews about it because if I was the marketing manager and I read reviews like that I think I would change my marketing strategy but I'm assuming the company doesn't care about reviews or reputation let alone respect

Stupid carls jr adds

The last couple adds were ok. They actually put clothing on the girl! I thought things were turning around for a change! I was surprised but not for long. I was soon let down by this recent three way commercial.... I don't understand it. You know these attention loving girls don't even step foot in a carls jr let alone take a bite out of a calorie/fat dripping infested burger like the bacon three way. THERE ARE OTHER WAYS TO ADVERTISE JUST SAYING. I am a 20 year old woman and I don't appreciate being objectified as I am sitting in a carls jr eating my burger. That has happened to me before by a table full of jerks sitting across from me. Everytime I took a bite they'd all stop and stair which made me way uncomfortable THANKS TO YOUR COMMERCIALS I had the most unsettling feeling as if these guys were getting dinner and a show out of me. This is bs man. Someone should really put an end to thsee mind diluting adds :(
