    Sucks to work here if you are not in school!

    Back Line Cook (Current Employee) Clintwood, VA

    ProsSomewhat decent hours
    It was close to my home
    Worked with me on scheduling before they got a new manager

    Cons-Other shifts didn't take care of all there work
    -Management is hard to get along with
    -Hire/promote people to management who don't know what they are doing (After 5 months of a girl still not knowing her job they promoted her to a shift leader and still a year later doesn't know what she is doing)
    -No longer hire high school kids
    -If you get overtime by accident you get jumped all over for it! If you live where it snows a lot and agree to be on the "snow team" don't agree to go in if you have a chance to get overtime they will cut your hours back to 20/week!!!
    -Make it impossible to get full time
    -Make it impossible to get a paid vacation until you hit 5 years then you have another 5 years before you get another one

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake a few minutes to listen to your employees
    When you promote somebody to some form of management make sure they know there job!

    Great But Challenging

    Crew Trainer (Current Employee) La Follette, TN

    ProsFlexible Schedule
    Decent Hours
    Conditionally Discounted Food
    Free Drinks
    Great Job for First Joining the Workforce.

    ConsNo Raises or Promotions Unless YOU ask THEM outright
    Large Workload
    Low Pay / Few Benefits
    Work Experience Dependent on the Managers' Personalities and Compassion for Others

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your Crew Members with respect. Get in there and help your crew people when you see they need help. Shift leaders, your jobs are to make sure everybody gets theirs done on time and that everything does get done, sometimes this means helping Crew Members with their chores, even if you think it beneath you.
    Basically, treat your employees how you would want to be treated if you was in their position. Give compliments for a good job well done.

    Overworked, and underpaid.

    Shift Leader (Current Employee) Faribault, MN

    ProsThe people are fun to work with. It literally took me 5 minutes to think of anything good.

    ConsI've been working for Hardee's for 11 years now and have been a shift leader for 10 of it. Because they give very little in raises and since as always the price of life goes up I was forced to get a second job. So, for the last year and a half I've been working 60 to 70 hours a week with out a break. I find it funny that a company that loves to raise their prices (about 3 times a year) sure have a hard time giving more to the people that help make them money. And I am tired of hearing "if it wasn't for the customer you wouldn't have a job. " No, if it wasn't for the employees you Wouldn't have a business.

    hardees managers are all about themselves instead of the workplace.

    Cashier (Current Employee) Emporia, VA

    Prosthe customers are great. if your are a local in need of a job, the hiring process is quick and you're paid for training.

    Consthe managers are disrespectful. no matters how qualified or how diligent of a worker you are, the hiring manager will still pick a personal favorite employee for a promotion.

    Advice to Senior Managementpay attention to those who work hard, they deserve to move up in position. also, a thorough background check is needed for All employees. No one deserves to work on the same shift as a thief.

    Long hours, no breaks, and most unprofessional managers I have worked for!

    Back Line Cook (Current Employee) Noblesville, IN

    ProsGood food. A few good co-workers.

    ConsLong hours, gm refuses to give breaks, most unprofessional managers that bad mouth their hard-working employees and keep the bad ones. Horrible!!

    Advice to Senior ManagementGrow up and manage instead of bad mouthing people! Help your employees rather than get mad or do nothing. Give people breaks before you lose all of your good employees!
