    I worked at Hardee's full-time (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

    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.

    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 part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    "None that I can think of"

    Cons

    Many. Company does not care at all about it's employees. Very difficult to get a raise. You will never succeed at your job. This company closely resembles third world country sweat shops. They demand more and more everyday from their employees. Minimum wage and low hours. Managers yell and belittle the employees in front of customers. Very dirty kitchen with water leaking from ceiling and coming up from drain. I was very surprised to see a corporate restaurant being allowed to operate at this level. I feel Hardees Corp. should be sold, and let someone who knows what their doing run it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    "Get it together" You all treat your employees like pure c*&p!

    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

    You either get hours or you don't.

    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.
