    Pros

    Good times with friendly people. Free meals. Nice staffing. Fast paced. I enjoyed it for the most part and would recommend it to someone else.

    Cons

    Long hours low pay wouldn't recommend doing it because they try to make you do three 14 hr shifts a week

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

    Pros

    The pay, free food, pretty good hours, and some of the people that you work with make the job good.

    Cons

    You always are cleaning up. Going home smelling like chicken does not help. Some ride employees. Someone always calling out. It's all not to bad though. But personally the thing I hate most...drivethru

    Advice to Management

    More pay for employees that are not GM or and Assistant. So much turnover because people's pay are not where they need to be.

    Pros

    Strong teamwork helps tons, and the free $5 meals are like, my life right now. A great company for people with dedication.

    Cons

    Floors get -very- messy with grease, and food products. It really gets into slip-resistant shoes, and my outfit usually is covered in food pieces by the end of my shift, regardless of how careful I'm trying to be. But that just might be me lol !

    Advice to Management

    Encourage, practice,and balance strong teamwork, communication, and efficiency. Make sure the employees know what you want and when you want it done, don't be afraid to go press us to get better and faster!
