    Pros

    Usually friendly people, some friendly customers, who sometimes will tip you!

    Cons

    Shift leaders can be real power abusers, i.e. Smoking while making employees do EVERYTHING, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your shift leaders in order and make sure they are doing their jobs too

    I have been working at Hardee's full-time

    Pros

    Good food. A few good co-workers.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow 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!

    Pros

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

    Cons

    the 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 ManagementAdvice

    pay 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.

    I have been working at Hardee's part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    If you work really hard, they give you hours. Half price food. Time and a half for Thanksgiving hours worked, and double pay for Christmas. Management gets bonuses.

    Cons

    It's a grease pit. No management opportunites for ex-offenders. No structured pay raise schedule for crew members.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As much emphasis is put on employees to mark dates and times for product quality, no time mark is in place to make sure that employees get lunch breaks. When I first started I was REQUIRED to take a 30 min off the clock lunch during a 3 hour shift. Now at least once a week I am NOT ALLOWED to take a 30 min off the clock lunch during an 8 hour shift. I have worked over 10 hours in a day and not had one. This is illegal in the state of Tennessee.

    I have been working at Hardee's full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Typical managerial work. Learn the expected procedures, follow the rules, and you can make a steady, albeit small, paycheck.

    Cons

    Low salary for entry-level management. Very strict procedures concerning inventory, drive-through reporting, etc. Long training program a bit too far away from home. District and regional managers that were very hard to respect.
