Pros

There's room to grow if you are a dedicated individual.

Cons

A lot of work is involved. At my particular store, the employees would take the orders, pack them, and also do all the cleaning and maintenance.

    I worked at KFC part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Co-workers were friendly, flexible schedule, employee discount.

    Cons

    Racist, drastic hour cuts, rude managers, definitely no room to move up in the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Watch what your managers are doing better and how they are treating their employees instead of just looking at statistics. The store I worked in had all black employees and when it came sown to it I was the one always getting in trouble for things the other employees did on a daily basis. It was so bad I quit

    Pros

    If you like to stay busy this is the place for you. Managers work along side of the team to deliver results. There is never a dull moment between the work, terrific employees, and regular customers. Free meals. Good compensation depending on franchisee.

    Cons

    KFC corp runs specials to increase sales with no interest in profitability. Franchisees are in the business to make money. Often times this puts a GM in the crossfire. However upper management often understands this balancing act and is sympathetic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't lose your stores to your direct competitor, Popeyes.
