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

    Pros

    wonderful boss, works well with schedule, generally gives time off, laid back environment. Owner actually comes to the stores to maintain and communicate personally with employees.

    Cons

    It is a fast food restaurant, it is hard to get other jobs after only working fast food. I've only worked in the food industry, it is fairly hard for me to get other jobs because I have no other experience.

    Stop rehiring the same old employees that end up leaving the company.

    Pros

    Very chill atmosphere
    Not very strict

    Cons

    To this day I have never gotten corporate to change my w-2 preferences. I kept asking corporate office to change how much taxes was taken out of my check but they never did so.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your employees. Higher wages for the crap they have to deal with.

    I have been working at KFC as an intern

    Pros

    I really did not like anything about working there.

    Cons

    Interviewed with one person.
    Hired by another person.
    Worked for a third person.

    Environment is very political. Be ready to play the game when you get there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Interns need experience. Make sure they do the job they are hired for.

    A fun place to work

    I have been working at KFC

    Pros

    Eating chicken and other food as well as unlimited soda. Also the people are very friendly and like to talk when it's not busy.

    Cons

    The biggest con for me is that when I go home I smell like grease and my skin is greasy. It's difficult to get that grease smell out of clothes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I wish that there were more training opportunities to move into management from low positions like crew worker. Also the pay could be higher.
