    I worked at KFC part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free food
    Easy to get time off

    Cons

    Rushing me constantly with drive through times
    Telling me to even answer drive through calls on my headset in the bathroom
    Manager was a crook

    Advice to Management

    Stressing out about the times always are just going to make you crew work less efficiently. Relaxed work environments promote higher quality service.

    I worked at KFC part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It was okay. Some days I worked doubles but it's a good way for young people to make money. Pretty good training, I was a pro at everything by the time I left

    Cons

    Inspections and placing the blame on the newest or lowest paid employees but this is typical in fast food.

    Advice to Management

    The people at the bottom work hard so that you don't have to. Keep that in mind and supply them with good benefits.

    Pros

    the discount on food is ok

    Cons

    drive thru cashier is also responsible for food prep

    Advice to Management

    don't expect drive thru times to be short when you have the drive thru cashier working alone to take orders, pack food, and ring the customer up while also doing all the side dish prep.
