    I worked at Hardee's part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The managers are pretty fair, I got all the hours I wanted by proving that I was a hard worker. Their registers were pretty modern and easy to work. There was plenty of space in the back line to move around and store things. You have to prep alot more of the food than you do at BK. However, the pace isn't as hectic as McD.

    Cons

    Not enough cleaning was enforced, so there were areas with significant grime build-up. Managers weren't quite strict enough on all employees, so some people ended up skating by without having to work that hard. You only get 30% discount on employee meals. There was no talk about getting a performance review or a raise at month 6 (or month 9 for that matter).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review your employee's performance more regularly as you promise you will in the handbook. A lot of turnover is happening because some people who deserve raises aren't getting them.

    Pros

    Easy job really, you don't have to do the slave work, but you can if you want. you are paid to manage and supervise.

    Cons

    Completely unorganized. The upper management is completely well, ignorant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Follow through with the promises made to employees, like for example, if you tell him/her you will have them fully trained within a month, then do it! do not just blow it off more and more and pretend it isn't there.

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

    Pros

    excellent written procedures works well when used properly customers can get great food quickly and friendly if used properly.

    Cons

    restaurants have procedures posted as tools for management as well as employee, but it rarely seem to come together and flow

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    can be super restaurant has awesome food but takes to long to deliver product to customer due to management lack of focus in most cases, I dont usually blame the employees as it is managements job to manage. Would like to see managers trained better before getting positions, and perhaps take some sort of time management coarse, they are wasteing your money! also notice poster in back of store with 1800 number would like company to create policy about bullying
