    I have been working at Hardee's part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Not alot of customers. Not much training required. Usually very flexible hours. Provide $5 for meals if you go over you have to pay the difference.

    Cons

    Closing is bad you usually are by yourself and have to prepare meals and clean at the same time. You will get random rushes at night sometimes 5 minutes before you close. Very strict managers. Sometimes you have to clean breakfast dishes if they weren't cleaned properly. You are expected to be out by 10:20 but very hard when you have to prepare food and clean by yourself.

    I have been working at Hardee's part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Somewhat decent hours
    It was close to my home
    Worked with me on scheduling before they got a new manager

    Cons

    -Other shifts didn't take care of all there work
    -Management is hard to get along with
    -Hire/promote people to management who don't know what they are doing (After 5 months of a girl still not knowing her job they promoted her to a shift leader and still a year later doesn't know what she is doing)
    -No longer hire high school kids
    -If you get overtime by accident you get jumped all over for it! If you live where it snows a lot and agree to be on the "snow team" don't agree to go in if you have a chance to get overtime they will cut your hours back to 20/week!!!
    -Make it impossible to get full time
    -Make it impossible to get a paid vacation until you hit 5 years then you have another 5 years before you get another one

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a few minutes to listen to your employees
    When you promote somebody to some form of management make sure they know there job!

    Pros

    the customers was always great, friendly coworkers, hard working people for the most part some laziness, decent work life balance.

    Cons

    very low wadges, disorganized at time, I am sure my district manager was a racist, not enough workers to meet the customers demands, management expect to much and pays to little.

    Current Employee - Crew Trainer in La Follette, TN

    I have been working at Hardee's full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Flexible Schedule
    Decent Hours
    Conditionally Discounted Food
    Free Drinks
    Great Job for First Joining the Workforce.

    Cons

    No Raises or Promotions Unless YOU ask THEM outright
    Large Workload
    Low Pay / Few Benefits
    Work Experience Dependent on the Managers' Personalities and Compassion for Others

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your Crew Members with respect. Get in there and help your crew people when you see they need help. Shift leaders, your jobs are to make sure everybody gets theirs done on time and that everything does get done, sometimes this means helping Crew Members with their chores, even if you think it beneath you.
    Basically, treat your employees how you would want to be treated if you was in their position. Give compliments for a good job well done.

    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 have been working at Hardee's part-time for more than a year

    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.
