Consistent money, great beer!
Server (Current Employee) –  Costa Mesa, CAJanuary 26, 2017
Working at Karl's is a good serving position. Money is consistent and the beer is great with a pretty good quality of food for a brewery. Shopper standards and emphasis can be a little cumbersome when trying to provide truely exceptional customer service. Overall, great people and a good serving job. My only qualm is that no matter how long someone has worked there and proven themselves you are only one 90% shop (which can happen for totally subjective reasons) from serious demotion on shift scheduling. This creates a rather insecure work environment and is demoralizing over time.

Great place to learn and grow as an individual
Host (Former Employee) –  Costa Mesa, CAAugust 21, 2016
Everybody was always upbeat and smiling, it was like a second family. You learn so much about the behind the scenes of a restaurant like why things are portioned a certain way or the importance of checking on customers. The hardest part of the job was trying to get shifts covered and rescheduled.

Nobody that works on the restaurant side of this company is happy.
Beer Ambassador (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CAFebruary 16, 2016
The company is leaving behind all of their longtime employees. The benefits get worse and worse every year while the expectations get higher. Nobody gets paid what they deserve and the penalty for mistakes is getting fired. Everybody that works here either has a second job or is looking for a new one.
Pros
Free Shift Beers and Monthly six packs
Cons
No Benefits, High expectations/Low compensation
