Good for beginners but you will have to learn on your own. Management will help you but there are certain limitations. If you have desk job, then you can worry a bit less than the floor jobs.

Don’t do it

Pay is terrible. Minimum wage and you never get raises. Even if you’re promoted to manager, they will expect you to work as a manager making minimum wage. Not worth it

Stressful

managers will ask you to stay as long as they need you too and will not care about your outside life, schedules are NOT flexible and managers and very mouthy and have a lot of attitude.

Pros

fun coworkers

Cons

Pressurized and family Work Environment

Recently i have Joined KFC After leave McDonalds.Career Growth is available here if you work with full interest Highest Sale as compare to McDonalds but Hospitality and Table service Procedure not followed here.McDonalds need to improve their MDS. Employees are asset of a Company butTurnover on highest side due to KFC Standard not followed like proper Breaks, Employee Daily Meals Facility, Timely Off, Weekly Rest, Supply offloading procedure, is question Mark on KFC Performance. Everyone face ROCC Pressure due to RGM never feel relax until audit not done that's why employee turn over is higher side.ROOC Should be done just once a time in a year like McDonalds.Company should Focus on Area Coach Authorities.Area Coach should be visit like 3rd Party Auditor in other Areas Branches.

Pros

Highly Paid

It’s a 9-5. Nothing much more than that.

Management doesn’t take time to actually make the employees work as a team. It’s too many chiefs and not enough team effort. Childish behavior and understaffed. No OT but if they need you to work, they will call. No set schedule and no set hours.

Pros

Meals are discounted

Cons

Bad Management

Fun, the people make it worthwhile.

It's the people you work with not the job that makes it worth it. The work is easy but it's a fast paced restaurant environment. Hot, sales driven and mostly teenagers working their first job.

Pros

Free lunch and 25% discount

Cons

Long hours, rota shift work at hardly any notice, underpaid, clic

Don’t work for a franchise

Over worked and underpaid no benefits . The owners don’t even give us recognition for the work we do that earns them thousands of dollars . Flexible hours depending on your store . In my store there’s a set night shift and set morning shift which is messed up because people feel like they own morning shifts . $15/hr to do delivery , cleaning , packing and dishes IS RIDICULOUS.

Pros

Free lunch, opportunity to advance

Cons

Pay, short breaks

Se exige mucho y no sebpaga lonque corresponde

Si quieres ser explotado y perder tu privacidad y vida fuera del empleo este es el lugar correcto ya que incluso en tus días de descanso te están molestando por celular y también se adueñan de tu celular como con 20 a 30 grupos

Pros

Prestaciones

Cons

No tienes vida social

The only thing good is the weekly pay and free food.

Its not much to say; This is for sure not a job you can or should even want to make a career out of. The only thing that kept me there for so long were my fun coworkers, it can work around my schedule and weekly pay. There's nothing more & nothing less.

Pros

Free Food, Weekly pay

Cons

Never clean enough, terrible management

The coworkers were great management and customers sucked

At kfc the employees are over worked and are thought to let the customers do as they please with you and treat you how ever they like .some managers take advantage of employees and there natural leading talents and will leave in the middle of the shift when they get there .

Pros

Free food

Cons

Pour management little to no breaks over worked

Absolutely awful

If you are considering applying just don’t. Terrible pay for terrible work. Highest staff turnover I have ever seen and horrible customers. You get free food though for lunch but you’ll get sick of it soon enough.

Pros

Free lunch

Cons

Lazy management

Average Job

The job was ok, they’d always send me home early on a shift which would be annoying as it’s pointless going in for a shift just to be sent home. The management was ok. Some were nasty others were nice. Depends really. The pay was awful and they’d expect so much of you. Minimum wage.

Pros

Free Food

Cons

Short shifts awful pay

Meh

It was okay for the time I was working there, as far as I know right now the management has gotten better by a longshot. It was a tad stressful albeit sometimes a laid back job.
