    Shift leader at hardees

    Shift Leader (Current Employee) Chester, VA

    ProsEasy job really, you don't have to do the slave work, but you can if you want. you are paid to manage and supervise.

    ConsCompletely unorganized. The upper management is completely well, ignorant.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFollow through with the promises made to employees, like for example, if you tell him/her you will have them fully trained within a month, then do it! do not just blow it off more and more and pretend it isn't there.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    a great part time job!

    Hardees General Labor (Current Employee) Wake Forest, NC

    Prosexcellent written procedures works well when used properly customers can get great food quickly and friendly if used properly.

    Consrestaurants have procedures posted as tools for management as well as employee, but it rarely seem to come together and flow

    Advice to Senior Managementcan be super restaurant has awesome food but takes to long to deliver product to customer due to management lack of focus in most cases, I dont usually blame the employees as it is managements job to manage. Would like to see managers trained better before getting positions, and perhaps take some sort of time management coarse, they are wasteing your money! also notice poster in back of store with 1800 number would like company to create policy about bullying

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Dependable, boring, and gossip galore.

    Crew Member (Current Employee) Wilmington, NC

    ProsVery hard to get fired. In fact I have only seen people fired after not showing up for a week. Even then, they were rehired 50% of time. Easy to learn. Your entire job will be memorized in a week. Room for promotion. Driver's license required for promotion.

    ConsCan be stressful because you may be doing others work too. It is very common for your fellow employees to call out sick, most of which times they are going partying. Lots & lots of gossip about other employees. Even management will vent their dislike of other employees. Extremely repetitive. Nothing will change in your routine, ever.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNo change needed, it fills a gap in employment. Both in people who wont change that need jobs, and no job will be perfect.

    Learning and growing experience

    Shift Leader (Current Employee)

    ProsThe management team isn't hard to get along with.
    Good teamwork and everyone works together well.
    They offer excellent customer service to their customers.

    ConsThey pay isn't that great, but it is fast food.
    You Dont get 40 hours a week unless your upper management.
    When training there you only get 3 days to train.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDont be scared to put your foot down and discipline your employees.
    Set limits and dont change or bend them for no one.
    Adhere to all policies and procedures whether set forth by you or corporate.

    No work ethic

    Cashier (Current Employee) North Charleston, SC

    ProsNot difficult work, moderately flexible hours, and half off of food while on the clock. It's also not that difficult to get a job there. The shift leaders that do have good work ethic are very enjoyable to work with.

    ConsMinimum wage, which is to be expected, but is still not the best. You have a plethora of angry, rude, and flat out impatient customers. Also, the store manager could have weeded out two of the shift leaders who did not do any work and had everyone else do theirs, those two women had no work ethic.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf someone isn't doing their job, replace them with someone who will.

    It's okay

    General Manager (Current Employee) Springfield, MO

    ProsIt's easy to learn and do. The positions are all-but self explanitory. If you just do the common sense things you'll be about as good as anyone they can find to hire.

    ConsThe company has grown and is struggling to figure out how to operate well. Way behind the times in training, management practices, and store layout. The owner seems to really only care about customers view and afforable changes to improve that and overlooks all the broken equipment and frustrations for those actually working in the store.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFace the reality, even when it's hard, and staff apporpriately on the district level. Too many stores per DM is lowering the effectiveness. Also, technology can help the overwhelming work load in stores if you'll just hire IT help and get it figured out for good. Make what you pay for work for you not against you.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
