    I work the night shift with 1 good friend/supervisor. only 1 or 2 other ok employees there.

    Cook (Current Employee) Brainerd, MN

    Prosfood. getting rushes are fun and pass time. most of it is pretty simple work.

    Consneed to weed out bad employees. recognize better employees. poor pay. I've worked there 7 months minimum wage and never get a raise. they hire this other slow worker and he gets 8 bucks an hour..

    Advice to Senior ManagementI don't care if you are my boss. If we are deep in a rush, 15 minutes late on 4 orders and the screen is still full, put down the clip board, stop taking inventory and COME HELP!!

    Very stressful work environment with not much team work.

    DT Cashier (Current Employee)

    Pros-It's a good job for high school students and if you are an assistant manager or higher.
    -benefits available

    Cons-If you are a GOOD worker, you will find this work environment stressful.
    -Raise when min. wage goes up only.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCustomers are not always right! Don't push your good workers away...Have employee/manager meetings once in a while.

    Good for a starting job.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsIf you stay there long enough, a management position is feasible. If the manager is a good one, the food is typically better quality than when compared to other fast food chains.

    ConsExcept for management positions, the pay is low. Quality of the restaurant is largely dependent on management. Sometimes not enough people working to take care of sustained rushes. Schedules are not consistent from week to week, even when there are no new hires or people leaving.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry to make schedules consistent, or at least schedule more than one week ahead. This would mean fewer employees would have to request off when planning appointments, etc.

    Mediocre

    Cashier (Former Employee) Hohenwald, TN

    ProsWhy work at Hardee's? Well maybe it's not as disgusting as other jobs. You still like the food compared to others places.
    Easy
    Lots of customer service experience
    Friendly coworkers
    Food Discount
    Convenient

    ConsI disliked a lot of the cronyism at Hardee's, I hated the waste of food, I felt like I was either swamped or there was little to do.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI wish they'd relax the rules regarding food, offer more training and put starters on a different shift.

    I worked there for one day and I will never go back.

    Cashier (Former Employee) Highland Springs, VA

    ProsYou will gain experience with working in a fast food environment and realize the hardships the employees have to face.

    ConsMy first day of training was a very hectic. The manager who hired me was not there and left me with her assistant manager and employees. This was my very first job, so I expected to be trained throughly in how to function a cashier before being put into the fornt end. Wrong! I screwed up every ones order and had not a clue as to what was going on because the employees did not care to help me that much. As soon as my shift was over I realized this job was not for me and quit.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure to not set someone who's training for their first job shift up on a busy day and make sure the employees cooperate to train this person well enough to do their job.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
