    I have been working at KFC

    Pros

    - Free employee meal
    - Some of the employees are friendly
    - If you can't find anything else

    Cons

    - Low pay. For this type of work, KFC pays barely above minimum wages and management wonders why there is so much turnover.

    - The uniform is horrible! Heavy, oily, synthetic feel to it. It is hot and the fabric does not breathe. It feels like something a fireman would wear. Pants arrived six inches too long.

    - Little team cohesion - several employees said the f-word to each other and refused to help one another.

    - Little communication. They don't usually tell you how to do something - just chew you out for not doing it right. Preparation techniques vary from store to store.

    - The archaic green screen computer system shows you tiny little mnemonics that are almost indicipherable. There was no training as to what the computer was telling me to make.

    - Lack of professionalism by management. One was swearing as bad as the employees.

    - Extremely long hours demanded from team members. Insisted the only way to management was 11 hour days. If you go salary, I was told by employees to expect 60 hour weeks.

    - No benefits. No 401K available. No real track to retirement.

    - They offer to hire you in to a management track but then only hire you in as a cook with the potential to climb the ladder.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow employees who are older to work less hours if there is a need. It leads to more productive, happier people. Get rid of those awful hot, synthetic uniforms. Pay a better wage!
