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

    Pros

    The people you work with can be great. You get free food whenever you want, you can get semi-good hours, and you know of knew products before they come out.

    Cons

    The pay is awful, it takes months to get a five cent raise, customers do not appreciate you (it's fast food), and depending on the store it can be disgusting.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure your stores are running the way they are suppose to. The store I work at was always crawling with bugs and the owner did not know how to run the store correctly.

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

    Pros

    Face paced with lots of moving parts. Great food and lots of training tools. Good support from finance, HR, and facilities.

    Cons

    Hard to find and keep managers. Training for new managers is 6-8 weeks long but does not get them ready for the real world. Managers are expected to be up to speed in a short period of time before the pressure starts

    Advice to Management

    Need to reduce the complexity. KFC has to many menu items with low movement and you can't expect lower volume stores to keep up. Need a scaled down menu for small towns and stores with lower volume.

    I have been working at KFC full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    To work in a well know organization that allows me fully utilize my abilities, education and language skills in order to create a new type of my modern work. Have ambition to reach higher levels and standers of life

    Cons

    The most challenging thing about kfc is that it's all about the kfc reputation and fame which is a part different from all other hotel in maskat, omen so I can improve my skills and as well as I can work much harder in this which would be mote challenging for me..

    Pros

    Being able to move up in the company so fast. You just gotta work hard and you'll be able to move up.

    Cons

    Some managers aren't very good at training and have little to no patience. Don't do a very good job at training people

    Advice to Management

    BE MORE PATIENT
