    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...

    I have been working at Hardee's part-time for 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.

    I have been working at Hardee's full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    all very nice staff............except one shift leader, very disppointing.

    Cons

    Customers asked me, "Are you the only one working in there? Looks like you need help" A shift leader has taken my kindness for granted. I have been teased for the last time, yelled at for doing my job, told to hurry up-for breaking my back as fast as I can handle. Hardees in Clinton is an overall good first job, but employment needs a HUUUUUUGE change. They need hardworking, welcoming, dedicated employees...like me. I can no longer handle the stress. My two weeks notice is official and this girl is moving on with her life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    REVIEW review CHECK ON check on Take A CLOSER look at the Clinton Hardees, because not "everyone" is doing there share of the work.<<<<<<======

    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.
