    Pros

    I got free leftover breakfast food working that shift...

    Cons

    15 cents above minimum wage per hour, constantly understaffed, people quiting constantly. Overall a stressful situation. My store manager at the time quit and made just as much being a cashier at walmart. Location I worked at closed in 2009...

    Pros

    Why work at Hardee's? Well maybe it's not as disgusting as other jobs. You still like the food compared to others places.
    Easy
    Lots of customer service experience
    Friendly coworkers
    Food Discount
    Convenient

    Cons

    I disliked a lot of the cronyism at Hardee's, I hated the waste of food, I felt like I was either swamped or there was little to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I wish they'd relax the rules regarding food, offer more training and put starters on a different shift.

    Pros

    food. getting rushes are fun and pass time. most of it is pretty simple work.

    Cons

    need to weed out bad employees. recognize better employees. poor pay. I've worked there 7 months minimum wage and never get a raise. they hire this other slow worker and he gets 8 bucks an hour..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't care if you are my boss. If we are deep in a rush, 15 minutes late on 4 orders and the screen is still full, put down the clip board, stop taking inventory and COME HELP!!

    I worked at Hardee's

    Pros

    The job was kind of flexible with hours and I am sure that the actual corporation may not be bad but the restaurant I worked for was franchise owned.

    Cons

    When there was problems with the head manager and all of the shift leaders complained nothing would ever get done, it got to the point where over 3 managers quit within 3 months

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Check in on the franchise stores because there is problems and the crew is too scared to tell anyone in fear of getting in trouble.

    Pros

    good field management support. You are able to run operations with some flexibility. Depending on area management, you will get great support and great direction.

    Cons

    Poor management decisions from the very top. Gross tv commercials. Marketing not thought out. Reinventing the wheel. Not a people first business. A lot of wasted money in jobs that do not need to exsist. Poor support from corporate office. Ripping off customers for a .80 cent piece of meat. Poor quality of life, great if you want to live there for 65 hours a week. The company is grasping at straws to stay in business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    great person to work with.

    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.
