Is the Republican party in this state a moderate party or is it an extreme conservative party? Their problem is not me and the Democrats; their problem is themselves. Are they these extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay? Is that who they are? Because if that's who they are and they're the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of New York, because that's not who New Yorkers are.
If they're moderate Republicans like in the Senate right now, who control the Senate — moderate Republicans have a place in their state. George Pataki was governor of this state as a moderate Republican, but not what you're hearing from them on the far right.

What's the Catch with the Excelsior Scholarship? Its a get by type of job. Its okay but not the best. Could give more hours and more days. Overall it just could be better. Its the type of job you get until you can find something better. Perfect for students or part timers.
If you're someone just wanting to make a little cash on the side, it'd be a great place to work. I learned that I can remain calm in a stressful situation during lunch and dinner rushes and still get the job done. There may be more stressful times when it's just 3 people there and the store gets busy. The manager, the cook, and a front line crew member.
If you're great under pressure, the job will be simple. If not, then I wont deny that it might make the job harder. Very hostile work environment. I worked there for 2 years. I got bullied a lot and no one would help me or do anything to revise the situation. There for I left the job to find somewhere comfortable to work. Less than fabulous work atmosphere. It was a stressful job that could have been fun and productive. There are a lot of things that should have been remedied immediately that never were. Loved my customers, didn't love the job itself. Also, good people to be around and work with.
Management did their best considering the lack of management people and employees The pay sucks and getting paid every two weeks is hard.. People are back stabbing and rude yo other employees and The customers The customers are regulars and amazing. Almost no service, had to sit and wait on customers and did nothing. Poor management, unclean environment. The hours were too long at one time for there to be no service and they shorted my check. The manager at Hardee's is horrible. She's never considerate of your needed days off.
She always calls you in on your days off and expect you to come in and work. Always needs you to stay over. You don't get your raises like your supposed to.
The managemt need help. This was a colorful work experience the management had no control over the coworkers nor did they show enthusiasm in there job as manger. The District Manager would let coworkers slide with taking money from drawers Ect.. The management team was good for the store, however, the ones up top I felt were very disconnected from what goes on inside their own restaurants.
They focus on customer service, which is good, but they also have a habit of over compensating and throwing employees under the bus or not doing anything to resolve grievances within their own stores. For example, the store I worked at for four years desperately needs a remodel and update since mechanics were coming by on a weekly basis fixing things. The most we got was new paint on the walls.
