    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days - interviewed at KFC.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was actually extremely professional throughout the entirety. I went into the store with my resume, which I believe is the best way to get an interview here (and I've heard the same). The manager scheduled the interview for the very next day and then we started the training process the next day.

    I applied in-person - interviewed at KFC.

    Interview Details

    One on one interview with the manager. They will ask you questions based upon your ability to handle stressful situations - which there will be if you are hired. Focus on your ability to power through high-traffic times.

    Interview Questions
    • I got asked about experience working cooking equipment or if I would be willing to, which was unexpected as I was applying as a cashier / team member. Go ahead and say yes if you're up to it because employees that can work any station get the most hours.   Answer Question

    Cashier Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person - interviewed at KFC in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had my interview at KFC A&W in Vallejo, CA

    My friend previously worked at KFC and put in a good word to the manager for me. Next day, I got called for an interview. Once I showed up, I asked for the manager and waited about five minutes until he came out to see me. Once he did, he didn't make eye contact with me and told me to sit at another table with him, away from the rest of the customers. We sat down, he explained the interview process before starting, and he still didn't make eye contact with me. At this point, I didn't really care whether I got hired or not because everything about this particular KFC just seemed unprofessional. So anyways, he starts asking pretty basic interview questions and whenever I answered a question with a pretty GOOD answer, he would just make a face and immediately mark it as a bad answer (I could see how he was grading my answers). For example: he asked, "Can you tell me why you think you deserve this position(cashier)?" and I answered, "I think I deserve this position because I have retail experience that could help me with this position, I'm really familiar with the POS system, and I work well with others". He then made a yeah-right-face and marked it as a bad answer. And that was just ONE of the many times he made a face and marked my really good answers wrong so you could understand why I seem a bit annoyed about it.

    After the questions were all asked and answered, he tells me that I got a score of 22 out of 44 (former employees told me that he wasn't suppose to do that?), said the interview was over, and didn't even bother to shake my hand or say thanks for showing up. Unprofessional interview overall.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a day - interviewed at KFC.

    Interview Details

    Based on an employee referral and knowing the manager of the establishment in my area, the hiring/interviewing process was almost non-existent. I applied in person on May 08, 2009; interviewed around 11:00 am May 09, 2009, was hired on the spot, and began training at 11:30 am May 09, 2009. My first real day on the job was May 13, 2009. I believe the delay was due to a background check that the company required.

    RGM (Restaurant General Manager) Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at KFC in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    After submitting my resume through a job search website I was contacted by a member of upper management. I had a phone screening asking about past job experience and degrees and then I was scheduled for my first face-to-face interview with that same person. The interview went very well. They answered all my questions and informed me of the company's expectations and the type of opportunities and bonuses I could look forward to as long as I met my performance goals. I was contacted a week later to interview with the district manager and that went well also. It was a pleasant experience more questions about my past experiences in regards to customer service sales and leadership. I was contact to take part in a walk-thru at a KFC location just to get a general idea of what my daily responsibilities would consist of. The manager was very pleasant and helpful, making more excited about the possibility of becoming apart of the franchise. I was contacted the next day by the district manager with an offer contingent on my drug test and background check, which I accepted but later negotiated. I am currently waiting on the official offer to arrive, which I will definitely be accepting.
