    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.

    I have been working at KFC full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    It was a fun working environment and my co-workers were friendly. I was going to college full-time and they were extremely flexible with my schedule. It was easy to get rid of unwanted shifts and pick up extra shifts as desired.

    Cons

    The wages were low as expected for the fast food industry and there was little room for advancement. With a crew of about 20 Team members, there were only 3 management positions. The biggest con is just that it is a fast food restaurant and no one wants to work there in their 20's. No benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work with corporate to update and improve store and franchise policies.

    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.
