I worked fast food LONG ago (in high school). What they are doing is called a "suggestive sell" and it is what they are trained to do and told to do. It's part of their job. Aren't there things about YOUR job you have to do that you don't like -but you do them because THEY ARE PART OF YOUR JOB?

That aside, I think fast food service today sucks. I worked it before there were electronic cash registers. You had a menu pad and had to add up their order in your head and on the pad AND calculate tax all before they pulled away from the drive-thru speaker.

Now, you see slow moving people who can hardly push a button and count back change with employees sitting outside (and even inside at Hardees) smoking cigarettes stinking up the place and looking unprofessional. And I know this is not true of ALL place and all employees - but it is true for about 85% of them.

I think Hardee's has great food with good service. The people who work there are trained to do what they do. They get my vote and my money.
Yes

I worked at a restaurant many moons ago and I hated doing the suggestive selling, but it was part of my job and I had to do it or get in trouble with the managers on duty. So even though it annoys me I just grin and bear it.

I think that the employees at Hardees do a wonderful job...every time that I've been in town everyone has been very friendly and not pushy about selecting more items.

It is their job to ask if you would like something else. Leave a little earlier if you are going to stop and pick up breakfast at any of the local restaurants.

It pays to be friendly to the people that handle your food! They could do stuff to it that would make you sick and you not know it.-

ok too all you ppl putting Hardee`s down for what they have to do or say . how many of you have ever worked fast food? if you haven't then you don't know what they have to do just to keepthe managers off their backs. did you ever think that they don't like saying it nomore than you like hearing it but it is their job to do it. so damn give them a little credit for once . if you don't like it why keep coming back for more cause you know they do it so if you come back quit your b***hing about it..

I realize it is part of their job , and they would be repremanded otherwise . It is called suggestive selling and probably works 10% of the time . I figure by the time they do their irritating sales technique , they could get customers through there a heck of alot sooner . I've had to leave because the line was so long . I really believe they loose customers because of the 5 minute sales pitch at the speaker ..

I do however enjoy their breakfast , and have no complaint about the food . They don't have enough choices for my family for us to eat there any other meal . I think they should have more variety like they did years ago .

I agree, I love Hardee's. I always get through there SUPER fast, even with a long line. Who cares if they take 10 extra seconds of your time to do what they are asked to do? Donna in the drive through is the best.
