    Pros

    Very 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.

    Cons

    Can 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    well its fast food. very fast paced which makes the day go by alot faster. Alot of hours also. Great people to work with.

    Cons

    Benifits suck! no free meal. you get 50 percent off an hour before and after you work. 20 percent the rest of the time. also your break is unpaid which is awful because even if you only have a 5 hour shift you HAVE to take a break.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    the DM's need to get to know the crew. also redo the beifits. every other fast food joint gives a free meal

    Pros

    Our store is individually owned and the franchisees are fair and hard working.

    Cons

    The menu can not be changed except from the top down. We have had small suggestions from customers such as adding choc. milk to the menu. When we take initiative to add this we are reminded that we can only sell approved products.

    I have been working at Hardee's part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Not alot of customers. Not much training required. Usually very flexible hours. Provide $5 for meals if you go over you have to pay the difference.

    Cons

    Closing is bad you usually are by yourself and have to prepare meals and clean at the same time. You will get random rushes at night sometimes 5 minutes before you close. Very strict managers. Sometimes you have to clean breakfast dishes if they weren't cleaned properly. You are expected to be out by 10:20 but very hard when you have to prepare food and clean by yourself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people/

    I have been working at Hardee's part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Somewhat 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 ManagementAdvice

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