    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

    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 part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Co-workers
    FREE FOOD
    Customers are usually nice old people
    Helps you to build skills with multi-tasking and giving great customer service
    Not difficult work
    Room for advancement

    Cons

    My manager sucked!
    You either get hours or you don't.
    Schedule is never put together
    Minimum wage with too much work (Being a team member, you usually have to do everything from working front cashier, drive thru, making fries, shakes, etc sometimes all by your self at once)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    YOU SUCK, DO BETTER!

    Pros

    the customers are great. if your are a local in need of a job, the hiring process is quick and you're paid for training.

    Cons

    the managers are disrespectful. no matters how qualified or how diligent of a worker you are, the hiring manager will still pick a personal favorite employee for a promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    pay attention to those who work hard, they deserve to move up in position. also, a thorough background check is needed for All employees. No one deserves to work on the same shift as a thief.

    I worked at Hardee's full-time for 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.
