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

    Pros

    The people are great. Mangers are super kind. We are officiate, work quickly, and give costumers the best costumer service. It is always a great place for me to get away. I love going to work, I always have a good time.

    Cons

    Some employees complain about everything. The mangers can have an attitude sometimes. Rushes are hard. We have not died down since we have opened. There are some times that are really hard but we always get through it.

    Pros

    Flexible hours. Lots to do

    Cons

    Little organization. Almost had no training, fast paced and not very clean. At times I found out management had clocked me out early and had me do extra work, but as a first job I didn’t know what to do.

    Pros

    They have stock options, decent benefits, and great support. Alot of helpful people throughout the company.

    Cons

    Some of the higher up people aren't so open minded and able to handle diversity. They have some restaurants at low low standards and others they hold at high standards. They require you to work ALOT of hours and sometimes with out days off.

    Work hard and it will pay off but try to build a good support underneath yourself within the store.
