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

    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.

    I have been working at Hardee's full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Not 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.

    Cons

    Minimum 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 ManagementAdvice

    If someone isn't doing their job, replace them with someone who will.

    I have been working at Hardee's full-time

    Pros

    It'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.

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

    Face 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.

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

    Pros

    I got free leftover breakfast food working that shift...

    Cons

    15 cents above minimum wage per hour, constantly understaffed, people quiting constantly. Overall a stressful situation. My store manager at the time quit and made just as much being a cashier at walmart. Location I worked at closed in 2009...

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

    Pros

    got my 30-40 hours every week, was gettin my yearly raise, got along great with all my employees.

    Cons

    customers was always rude, no matter how nice you was. they called the hotline for everything. policy just seem dumb.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    if Boddie-Noell was brothers, why cant employees work together that are related?? that is so backwards. I now have to transfer a job that i had for 3 years to another hardees because somebody called the hotline and said i was working with a relative. i think it is unfair, and i should have a say so instead i just have to leave, its like im held against my will. what is the problem with working with a family member ??? That is the dumbest thing i had ever heard. i think hardees has the most strict policy known to mankind.

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

    Pros

    all very nice staff............except one shift leader, very disppointing.

    Cons

    Customers asked me, "Are you the only one working in there? Looks like you need help" A shift leader has taken my kindness for granted. I have been teased for the last time, yelled at for doing my job, told to hurry up-for breaking my back as fast as I can handle. Hardees in Clinton is an overall good first job, but employment needs a HUUUUUUGE change. They need hardworking, welcoming, dedicated employees...like me. I can no longer handle the stress. My two weeks notice is official and this girl is moving on with her life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
