    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!

    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.

    Pros

    Flexible Schedule

    Conditionally Discounted Food
    Free Drinks
    Great Job for First Joining the Workforce.

    Cons

    No Raises or Promotions Unless YOU ask THEM outright
    Large Workload

    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 have been working at Hardee's full-time (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 (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
