    I worked at Hardee's full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I worked there for 3 years and hated every second of it, just needed a job, was shift manager,
    I guess a pro could be that its a steady paycheck. Cant think of any other pro.

    Cons

    there are so many cons, management is ok, its the big time management that sucks. Not reliable with hours, will only use u when they need you, terrible customers, sometimes you wont get paid for a few days AFTER payday, payroll will continually mess up your paychecks and perhaps put them on other peoples check. They expect you to do so much work but don't want to pay you any money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care about your employees! they are people too! you can not run a successful business with employees that hate there job because they are being treated like crap! Pay your managers some money! when someone quits it is our responsibility to work 40 plus hours at 9 bucks an hour? unacceptable!

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

    Pros

    People you work with are friendly and helpful.
    Staff Managers are friendly but with respect issues.
    Teamwork is good when they staff enough people to have a team.

    Cons

    Hours are screwed up badly because of Management.
    No raise with the hardest hours and still at $7.25
    Weekends and busiest days are the only part time I get so be cautious if you ever want weekend to yourself even if you give them a week's notice.
    Understaffed badly needs improvement.
    Hardly trained and expect to do everything the same week.
    IT's A HORRIBLE JOB WERE THEY THINK EVERYONE IS THEIR DOORMAT.
    Don't work here for your first fast food job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to be more understanding of what the workers do for this very little pay and should consider hiring more people so your best workers aren't miserable doing everything by themselves while the management "Supervises" and still expect more from the workers.

    Pros

    There are not any unless you think spending everyday and every moment at your store. Poor company with crazy expectations

    Cons

    There are so many... poor direction from regional manger, broke company , crazy expectations , low wages , another GM that outsteps her job title and boundaries. Lack of honesty and great integrity. Worst company I have ever worked for

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't not work for the Hardee's in Louisville. Will be the worst decision you could ever make

    I worked at Hardee's full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They have good food that you can usually sneak and eat, I met a lot of nice people there.

    Cons

    Very low pay, I started at 7.25 as just a cook and only went up to 9.25 when I became a shift lead. Management doesn't care about anything, very low staffed, I remember being there 3 hours after close because we had been short on people all day. Lots of people on drugs work there, including the current and last general manager, have to always watch your things I had money stolen from me there. No benefits but that's to be expected. I knew a woman who started in 1983 and she was only up to 10.50 an hour! That's insane.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make everyone take a drug test, promote people to management who actually know what they are doing, care more about your employees and LOWER YOUR PRICES. people dont want to pay twenty dollars for 2 burgers, 2 fries, and two drinks. Plus, your district manager is just an idiot.

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