    I have been working at Hardee's full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The great customers I have is the only pro.

    Cons

    Not enough labor hours and constantly cutting. They cut back on everything in the stores but, don't spare an expense on field positions. District managers just got brand new Ford fusions and they cut back labor in stores by about 4%. We're constantly expected to do the job of a manager as well as running crew positions. Not enough focus on the people who open and close the stores everyday. No recognition for hard work and those who slack off are not reprimanded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend a little time showing the little people that we're appreciated.

    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!

    Pros

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

    Cons

    No 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 ManagementAdvice

    Treat 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.

    I have been working at Hardee's full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    I'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.

    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
