    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at KFC (Union City, CA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was very basic, asked a couple questions. Nothing big. However, the interviewer was not into it at all, but none the less I got an offer. A week later, I came to do some paper-works, and 2 more weeks later they called me in for training.

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at KFC (Colchester, England (UK)).

    Interview

    I applied online, filled out the survey. Got invited to an interview a few days later, had to rearrange for the next day. At the interview it was very casual, met with a few members and they asked me some basic questions, was offered the job on the spot, filled everything in and I start work soon. Be yourself, don't be overly enthusiastic as they don't like that, I heard that first hand about another interviewee.

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at KFC (Cluj-Napoca (Romania)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Very short interview with standard questions and a standar pshicological quizz. The job requirments are pretty rudimentary. The manager was nice and the interview went smooth. After running into my previous experience he gave me a job already and asked me to go and make a stool medical test to begin work as fast as I can because their team are lacking in people.
