    Pros

    Delicious biscuits.... that is about it!

    Cons

    Has to be one of the worst companies to work for ever! You may have heard about Andrew Puzder because he will be worse for America than the burgers we sold. Upper Management is a joke and takes no suggestions on improvements to heart. Pay is garbage (in one of the lowest paying industries in america) Food is terrible for people and overpriced. Staff is not employed long enough to train well. What more can I say other than Don't Work For Hardee's. They will replace you with robots before you know it anyways.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back fried chicken.

    I worked at Hardee's full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent company to work for in upper management. Great pay if your working a straight 50 hour week.

    Cons

    Many weeks are 80-90 hours with no compensation for overage. District managers have varying expectations making it hard to know what they actually expect.

    Advice to Management

    Come up with clear expectations and goals dont leave any gray areas. Physically help your managers to avoid them working 80+ hours or not getting a day off for weeks. Visit each restaraunt frequently to avoid gaps in their knowledge base and how they train their new employees. Give credit where credit is due and push for advancement within.

    that crazy, dirty, new manager!!!! The building is literally over 65 years old and held together with Grease and plywood!

    I worked at Hardee's part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Steady work with fairly good co-workers, great interaction with the public, steady paycheck easy to learn.

    Cons

    Poor management, you're given two weeks to turn in any vacation day request but still may not get it, managers help each other get days off but will not attempt to help crew members. crew members have been bullied by managers into working later than their scheduled time by threatening to fir them.

    Advice to Management

    Start thinking of your employees and not just your selves, those people make your job much easier and keep your business running.
