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

    Pros

    plenty of hours and business was constant so i was always busy which makes for a quick 8hr day

    Cons

    depending on weather its still an older privatly owned or bought out by that horrid company KGP ,,makes all the difference. i loved working for them when they weren't lost in the mix of the 100 other restraunts this company owns.

    Advice to Management

    chicken is "homecooking" being personable and having that real relationship with the customers means alot. when these bigger companies get in there and you get lost following a gazillion rules that havent one thing to do with chicken or being personable it takes away so much. i dont wanna feel like im being served by another commercial robot
