    I worked at Yum! full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great pay and for food service decent hours

    Cons

    Lots of nights and weekends. Shrinking margins means less labor dollars so you must do more with less yearly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You must simplify operations to continue to reduce the labor allotment.

    I worked at Yum!

    Pros

    Can learn a lot with the right supervisor.

    Cons

    If you don't have a college degree I would suggest that you don't apply. This company is all about degrees no matter how much experience you have.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure to look at everybody that does something in a department not just the top level. You have to remember that it is not always the supervisors or managers getting you the information that you may need. It might be someone that is a lower level that has come up everything you need and it is that person you should reward not always management.

    I worked at Yum! full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Challenging work because of scale; upward growth potential, recognition culture is great (when taken seriously), lot of great folks, dedicated and passionate.

    Cons

    Can be cliq-ish... beware the boys club mentality as you move upward... constant pressure of aggressive performance targets can causes work/life balance issues...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Empower the people you have working for you. You just might be surprised at what could be accomplished.

    Pros

    You can build things and watch them grow (to some extent). Fun culture and people are friendly.

    Cons

    Confused leadership, politics for politics' sake, like to go around in circles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think like leaders. Take risks and prepare to change fast because you are living in the past.

    I thought it would be a cake walk but you actually work really hard and do many tasks not just Cashiers.

    I worked at Yum! part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Oh they do contest every month and if you get the most people to call in or sell the most promotional items they give you a little cash.

    Cons

    People always call in sick so you have to come in for them on your days off. Alot of turnaround. The uniform is horrible everything sucks to the pants when you leave you look filthy . People will come in and order food and be secretly filming you and then they give them to your bosses to talk to you about improving. It made me feel violated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people that may try to stick around longer than a week. Reward people that work hard and make sure the employees finish there jobs before they leave. Schedule more than four people on days its going to be really busy.
