    Dont be scared to put your foot down and discipline your employees.

    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!

    I have been working at Hardee's full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very hard to get fired. In fact I have only seen people fired after not showing up for a week. Even then, they were rehired 50% of time. Easy to learn. Your entire job will be memorized in a week. Room for promotion. Driver's license required for promotion.

    Cons

    Can be stressful because you may be doing others work too. It is very common for your fellow employees to call out sick, most of which times they are going partying. Lots & lots of gossip about other employees. Even management will vent their dislike of other employees. Extremely repetitive. Nothing will change in your routine, ever.

    Advice to Management

    No change needed, it fills a gap in employment. Both in people who wont change that need jobs, and no job will be perfect.

    Pros

    You can keep your job without performing critical functions. If you are fast on the screen you got your manager by the short hairs and job security.

    Cons

    Drama filled, zero accountability between coworkers and management, management is incompetent and does not hold people responsible for not doing their job. Unless you want to be a manager there is no growth in pay.

    Advice to Management

    Forget about your bonus check for a quarter or two, get the store running right before cutting costs. You cant effectively revamp a store if you cut costs constantly.

    I worked at Hardee's part-time

    Pros

    Have to mess up pretty badly to be fired.

    Food is delicious.

    Cons

    Some managers are certifiably insane...for example, a pathological liar, and a creepy, violent old man. On the other hand, other managers were great.

    Stoned coworkers...and managers. Actually, this didn't matter. In fact, it made some of them much easier to deal with. I'd almost call this a pro.

    Everything is covered in a layer of grime and grease, and always working around a hot broiler. A lot of yelling to move faster, and to always be doing something even when there is truly nothing to be done. Hearsay indicates that it is about the same as competing chains (some say better than McDonald's, others worse, etc).

    Pros

    excellent written procedures works well when used properly customers can get great food quickly and friendly if used properly.

    Cons

    restaurants have procedures posted as tools for management as well as employee, but it rarely seem to come together and flow

    Advice to Management

    can be super restaurant has awesome food but takes to long to deliver product to customer due to management lack of focus in most cases, I dont usually blame the employees as it is managements job to manage. Would like to see managers trained better before getting positions, and perhaps take some sort of time management coarse, they are wasteing your money! also notice poster in back of store with 1800 number would like company to create policy about bullying

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

    Pros

    * It's a job.
    * A few of the employees are cool
    * Schedule is flexible..not really a set one

    Cons

    I was a new hire and had no experience in fast food only experience in waitressing. I was very honest about that. I was hired..and lemme just say fast food is the most over worked and under paid job. My Manager had only been there a month..was very unprofessional towards me. The expectations were ridiculous. Your apparently expected to learn everything..in 4 working days. So i suggest unless your a fast learner or prior fast food experience don't apply. Trust me the 7.50 and 20 hrs a week they give you isnt worth it. I was told i wasnt quick enough with transactions i had only been there 4 days and then told i wasnt needed during week anymore. But they could use me on weekends, Ha! Trust me ..don't work here.
