    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 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.
