    I have been working at KFC part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The people I worked with were fun and easy going, aside from the rush hours the stores aren't really busy and you can get all your assignments done quickly.

    Cons

    Bad pay, no where to really advance to, pay wise. I got promoted quickly and was soon making as much as people who had been working for years. I can't see any reason to stay here for a long period of time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase the pay a little, McDonald's employees get better pay, and try to give incentives for people to excel and want to stay with the company.

    Pros

    The leadership and managers were nice and flexible, the co-workers were easy to work with and we all got along well.

    Cons

    It was pretty hard to get adjusted to the speed and the difficulty of working there when I first began, but it got easier as time went on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have no advice for management because they did a great job and couldn't have been any better than they already were.
