    I have been working at Hardee's full-time

    Pros

    Good food. A few good co-workers.

    Cons

    Long hours, gm refuses to give breaks, most unprofessional managers that bad mouth their hard-working employees and keep the bad ones. Horrible!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow up and manage instead of bad mouthing people! Help your employees rather than get mad or do nothing. Give people breaks before you lose all of your good employees!

    I worked at Hardee's full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity to advance if you can suck up to the right people.

    Cons

    First of all, the hours are horrible. If you want to make any sort of money in this company, you have to advance to management where you are called in all the time to work in your "off-time". Hardee's is open 365 days a year: I had to work every single holiday, including Christmas. This company treats their employees like crap because they don't care how much you work or how hard you work, they are only focused on profit. They do not care about their people. This was the worst job I have ever had in my life, and unfortunately I gave them ten years of my life. I wish I would have quit much, much sooner.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start focusing on the General Manager's more- Give them some help for the love of god- They can't do EVERYTHING by themselves and you can't expect them to motivate minimum wage employees to work hours that nobody in their right mind would work.

    Pros

    I didn't see any a mess

    Cons

    long hours management are lost in how to run a business .a unorganized mess.no values.I hated this place and have been in the business for years.send you away for ten weeks.and if they have a house full of Mexicans that don't speak English need to read lips. they think your taken their jobs and get ugly.training could be good but to many are telling and screaming for you to do something diffent.never ever would I work for them again.Just don't see them around in the future.work hourlys to death brings them to tears they have to much to do.biscuit maker was to keep biscuit dishes run grill set up for lunch.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    everything's not about sex,A COMPANY HAS TO HAVE ETHICS AND VALUES,get yourself organized.Great product to much in one area give those people some lapor.Pays good just not worth it.

    I worked at Hardee's full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good general management pay compared to other fast food restaurants

    Cons

    (1)Assistant managers and crew are paid poorly, thus you get what you pay for. All the work gets put on the GM. (2) for the area I worked in NO investment was made in the upkeep of the restaurant and equipment therefore adding more problems, they just seem to snow ball. (3) No appreciation when I killed myself cleaning the restaurant and getting rid of an inherited severe roach infestation. My $1500 bonus check was held because I used an extra 10 payroll hours WITH PERMISSION first. (4) because of all the above you get a very high turnover and people just not showing up for work!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in all levels of management. One person can not run the store by themselves. Reward your employees when they do a good job. Especially your managers who are on salary and not getting paid any extra to do the extra. CLEAN your stores! Hardee's is known to be one of the nastiest fast food chains out there. I wouldn't of ever believed how nasty had I not seen it for myself. Do something to improve night sales. It seems all stores complaint is having to work at night with only a couple of people because there is no business!
