    I have been working at Hardee's full-time

    Pros

    It's easy to learn and do. The positions are all-but self explanitory. If you just do the common sense things you'll be about as good as anyone they can find to hire.

    Cons

    The company has grown and is struggling to figure out how to operate well. Way behind the times in training, management practices, and store layout. The owner seems to really only care about customers view and afforable changes to improve that and overlooks all the broken equipment and frustrations for those actually working in the store.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Face the reality, even when it's hard, and staff apporpriately on the district level. Too many stores per DM is lowering the effectiveness. Also, technology can help the overwhelming work load in stores if you'll just hire IT help and get it figured out for good. Make what you pay for work for you not against you.

    I have been working at Hardee's part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    got my 30-40 hours every week, was gettin my yearly raise, got along great with all my employees.

    Cons

    customers was always rude, no matter how nice you was. they called the hotline for everything. policy just seem dumb.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    if Boddie-Noell was brothers, why cant employees work together that are related?? that is so backwards. I now have to transfer a job that i had for 3 years to another hardees because somebody called the hotline and said i was working with a relative. i think it is unfair, and i should have a say so instead i just have to leave, its like im held against my will. what is the problem with working with a family member ??? That is the dumbest thing i had ever heard. i think hardees has the most strict policy known to mankind.

    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.

    I worked at Hardee's

    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

    -It's a good job for high school students and if you are an assistant manager or higher.
    -benefits available

    Cons

    -If you are a GOOD worker, you will find this work environment stressful.
    -Raise when min. wage goes up only.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Customers are not always right! Don't push your good workers away...Have employee/manager meetings once in a while.
