    I worked at Yum! full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Bonus structure was excellent for salaried employees, as a senior worker bee my target bonus was 8%, which even in bad years was a decent lump of cash.
    Excellent amenities for workers.
    Decent health insurance plan. Was awesome, now just competitive.

    Cons

    Lots of 9-5 mentality. Heroes that fix problems they create get recognized. Big annual layoffs and restructuring for the last 4-5 years I was there. Not much challenge for a technical person. Big emphasis on style over substance. Recognition culture went from fun to lip service to a horrible chore.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you don't care to support people be skilled at a job function, just go ahead and stop doing that function.

    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 an 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.
