    I have been working at Hardee's full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The people are fun to work with. It literally took me 5 minutes to think of anything good.

    Cons

    I've been working for Hardee's for 11 years now and have been a shift leader for 10 of it. Because they give very little in raises and since as always the price of life goes up I was forced to get a second job. So, for the last year and a half I've been working 60 to 70 hours a week with out a break. I find it funny that a company that loves to raise their prices (about 3 times a year) sure have a hard time giving more to the people that help make them money. And I am tired of hearing "if it wasn't for the customer you wouldn't have a job. " No, if it wasn't for the employees you Wouldn't have a business.

    I worked at Hardee's full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The job is not difficult and is a good place to develop ones people skills. Free/reduced priced food is never a bad thing. Management can be a pro IF they work well with the crew. Flexible hours and there are typically enough volunteers for holidays so I never had to work one in 7 years.

    Cons

    Back up to dealing with the people. Anytime one is dealing with hungry customers can expect them to also be volatile and angry if something goes wrong but just scratch it up as a life lesson. Can be stressful if corporate is breathing down managements necks but again that is not everywhere.

    Pros

    they will give you hours if you work hard

    Cons

    they will not work with your schedule at all. I was told in my interview that they can work with my schedule because I was a full time student and I have two small children finding a sitter for 3am isn't easy

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

    Pros

    It is a wonderful environment with some very awesome coworkers. I loved providing awesome customer service and doing whatever we could to keep the guests happy. And the food is wonderful!

    Cons

    Some employees who were lazy got away with too much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees who were lazy and late consistently should have been given a limited number of chances and then been fired or demoted from shift leader to crew member.

    Usually friendly people, some friendly customers, who sometimes will tip you!

    Shift leaders can be real power abusers, i.e. Smoking while making employees do EVERYTHING, etc.

    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!
