    I worked at Hardee's full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It's all horrible. I can't honestly think of anything good that the company deserves to be recognized for.

    Cons

    They are a bunch of money hungry idiots. They have no business running a company if they can't treat people decently.

    Advice to Management

    Don't become a manager for them. It will honestly be the worst mistake you will make. You will loose so much in your personal life that makes this job not worth it.

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

    Pros

    Getting to know the customers. There are some great people who come into Hardee's. They are the only reason I enjoy my job.

    Cons

    Management is incapable of running the store. There is never enough staff, and other employees call out more than they are there. There is no disciplinary action for these employees because management has special feelings for them. We are constantly running out of supplies. How can a restaurant run out of napkins? The work is hard , and lunch breaks are only given when management feels like it. Today, alone I worked ten hours on my feet with not break.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to schedule enough employees, or at least, have back up employees who can work when other employees decide not show up. Don't have favorites who can get by with stealing food and nothing happens to them.

    Pros

    I guess it would be the food, it was discounted for us and we got to eat, nights were also not bad.

    Cons

    Breakfast Rush is terrible, understaffed, slow cook and drive thru times atleast at mine so be prepared to get cussed out constantly if you're a cashier

    Advice to Management

    Have more people working and running a register than just one. I had to run fries, drive thru, and front line by myself and had a 45 minute drive thru time because the cooks weren't even in the kitchen they were outside smoking.

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

    Pros

    50% off on food. That's the only positive thing I have to say about my experience with working at Hardees. .

    Cons

    The management is so crappy. They don't care about the employees. They only care about Labor %. Management talks to the employees so rudely. And management even knew one employee was stealing but still kept her in the store and fired someone else for the calling in sick.

    Advice to Management

    Drug test your employees and shift leaders. 95% of them are under the influence while on the clock

    Pros

    The pay is okay but not for the hours you have to work.

    Cons

    TOO MANY to list.
    Many not enough labor to serve guest, Work too many hours/NO family time. Training is limited for crew. Open very Holiday so plan to work. Upper management does not support stores at all..just want to see a profit instead of helping with true issues in store...staffing..STAY away..VERY stressful environment..

    Advice to Management

    Company is very political...if you are not part of a likeable group... you will NEVER go anywhere..They may even try to push you out.. I have seen it ..and heard upper management push it..
