    Pros

    Develop your skill in a matter of seconds. You learn a lot about the process of the great kentucky chicken.

    Cons

    Hard work is selling wings. Like any job, you need to be fast because always had customers and special works in the company to do too.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be careful with hot things. ( water, food, iron, fries)
    Always Smile.
    Be very helpful anf open mind with company image.

    Cons

    Rude customers
    Very repetitive
    Gets really busy and overwhelming

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I left because our franchise got new owners. The new owners SUCK. They look at you like a number and only care about the money. Our old owners treated us like family and the business really well.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Toccoa, GA

    Pros

    I worked here because I felt I could move up in the company being an assistant manager in my earlier years here working over eighty hours per week making less than mininum wage.

    Cons

    The current management hires people that live his life style. The district manager for the next year does not care about anyone or anything. He will be retiring in a year. Things might get better after he retires in 2015 but I recommend to stay away from this company for the next year or two.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management promotes aggressive people that will not communicate with other employees. This is common in fast food because this is the people that have the most experience in that industry. I pray this is changing over the next couple of years and that management will be replaced with managers that will hire people that are nice to customers and do not give the food away to their friends and family.
