    Pros

    If you are able to do the fast pace work and stand on your feet for 12 hours without a lunch break the medical insurance is great.

    Cons

    Very fast pace work. Long hours on your feet with no lunch break.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make time for lunch breaks even on busy days and make room for people with disabilities to work the front half of the store instead of the fast pace back line.

    Pros

    If you stay there long enough, a management position is feasible. If the manager is a good one, the food is typically better quality than when compared to other fast food chains.

    Cons

    Except for management positions, the pay is low. Quality of the restaurant is largely dependent on management. Sometimes not enough people working to take care of sustained rushes. Schedules are not consistent from week to week, even when there are no new hires or people leaving.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to make schedules consistent, or at least schedule more than one week ahead. This would mean fewer employees would have to request off when planning appointments, etc.

    Pros

    Working with customers and resolving issues is a great feeling.

    Cons

    Management needs to listen to standout employees when there are threats made by low life employees. This needs to be taken seriously and weed out the bad employees which will make situations better for everyone involved. Customers can see this as well, which will affect business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Screen employees. Listen to key employees.

    Free food, mismanagement

    Pros

    One of the best reasons to work at Hardee's is the free food. The co-workers were usually fun to hang out with.

    Cons

    I can't believe they got rid of the roast beef sandwich! People seemed to love the roast beef and I think business really dropped off when they dropped it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management - My store closed in December 2009 because of mismanagement. Don't let this happen to your other stores or there won't be a Hardee's to write reviews about.
