    I have been working at Hardee's full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Very hard to get fired. In fact I have only seen people fired after not showing up for a week. Even then, they were rehired 50% of time. Easy to learn. Your entire job will be memorized in a week. Room for promotion. Driver's license required for promotion.

    Cons

    Can be stressful because you may be doing others work too. It is very common for your fellow employees to call out sick, most of which times they are going partying. Lots & lots of gossip about other employees. Even management will vent their dislike of other employees. Extremely repetitive. Nothing will change in your routine, ever.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No change needed, it fills a gap in employment. Both in people who wont change that need jobs, and no job will be perfect.

    Pros

    well its fast food. very fast paced which makes the day go by alot faster. Alot of hours also. Great people to work with.

    Cons

    Benifits suck! no free meal. you get 50 percent off an hour before and after you work. 20 percent the rest of the time. also your break is unpaid which is awful because even if you only have a 5 hour shift you HAVE to take a break.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    the DM's need to get to know the crew. also redo the beifits. every other fast food joint gives a free meal

    Pros

    Our store is individually owned and the franchisees are fair and hard working.

    Cons

    The menu can not be changed except from the top down. We have had small suggestions from customers such as adding choc. milk to the menu. When we take initiative to add this we are reminded that we can only sell approved products.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    none

    I worked at Hardee's

    Pros

    lots of hours available to work, the basic tasks of work are very easy, the hours aren't too horrific like at McDonald's or Blockbuster, the store is closed on holidays unlike other places, managers can be very friendly and easy to get along with

    Cons

    rude and impatient customers, low pay, greasy environment, high temperature in the kitchen area, coworkers that don't care or very low intelligence, uniforms that you have to pay to have cleaned, not much room for promotion to satisfying job

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    if they really want to be fast casual and not fast food they should modify restaurants to mirror this change, i.e. get rid of drive thru lane
