    Pros

    You will gain experience with working in a fast food environment and realize the hardships the employees have to face.

    Cons

    My first day of training was a very hectic. The manager who hired me was not there and left me with her assistant manager and employees. This was my very first job, so I expected to be trained throughly in how to function a cashier before being put into the fornt end. Wrong! I screwed up every ones order and had not a clue as to what was going on because the employees did not care to help me that much. As soon as my shift was over I realized this job was not for me and quit.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure to not set someone who's training for their first job shift up on a busy day and make sure the employees cooperate to train this person well enough to do their job.

    I have been working at Hardee's full-time (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 Management

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

    I worked at Hardee's full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good general management pay compared to other fast food restaurants

    Cons

    (1)Assistant managers and crew are paid poorly, thus you get what you pay for. All the work gets put on the GM. (2) for the area I worked in NO investment was made in the upkeep of the restaurant and equipment therefore adding more problems, they just seem to snow ball. (3) No appreciation when I killed myself cleaning the restaurant and getting rid of an inherited severe roach infestation. My $1500 bonus check was held because I used an extra 10 payroll hours WITH PERMISSION first. (4) because of all the above you get a very high turnover and people just not showing up for work!

    Advice to Management

    Invest in all levels of management. One person can not run the store by themselves. Reward your employees when they do a good job. Especially your managers who are on salary and not getting paid any extra to do the extra. CLEAN your stores! Hardee's is known to be one of the nastiest fast food chains out there. I wouldn't of ever believed how nasty had I not seen it for myself. Do something to improve night sales. It seems all stores complaint is having to work at night with only a couple of people because there is no business!
