Cashier (Former Employee), Seaside, CA – January 29, 2015
A day at work was really stressful and smelly. Managers were very loud and unprofessional. They treated employees like animals and at times were prejudice to certain customers in the restaurant. I learned to work quickly and take orders, clean lobbies and restrooms. The hard part of working there was the oily and greasy environment. It was fun to work there when co-workers were there because we were able to have a good time working with each other.
Cashier/Team Member (Former Employee), Harper Woods, MI – January 29, 2015

a typical work day would a slow pace in the moring and fast pace in the evening. i learned to develop patience and understanding. my co-workers made my day good they helped me and taught me the business. the hardest part of the job is trying to make sure every customer order was correct. the most enjoyable part of my day is whem my customers oders are correct and they enjoyed their meal
Front Cashier (Former Employee), Chicago, IL – January 29, 2015
At kfc it was very unprofessional. The average day would be getting cursed at, seeing mice, unfair treatment on the job. I learned that you go through things that you have to learn to overcome in any job. I had 3 managers, only 1 was actually acting like a manager. Hardest part about the job was working with mice, very uncomfortable. The best part was being able to eat.

This job is very fast paced! It's fun and exciting you meet new and different people every day! The co- workers are very team oriented and friendly. I learned that everyone make mistakes even the customers. The hardest part of the job was keeping the customers happy and satisfied.

Shift manager (Current Employee), Newport, Delaware – January 28, 2015
Pros: longer hours the longer you work there.
Cons: no free lunches, no health care incentives, hardly any raises
As soon as I get to work, I immediately count the safe to see if it's short. I count inventory of certain items from shift transition and nightly counts. I learned to give orders to team members in a polite and efficient way. At KFC/Tacobell we believe the co-workers should get to know everyone this way to provide great team work. I had to adapt as a manager each day, and learn all the positions in the job.
The hardest part of the job is to remember the customer is always right, even if they lie. I learned I have to always be positive at the work place.
The most enjoyable part is to know we made a customers day just by being polite and having an interest in their lives.
cashier (Former Employee), Harrisburg, PA – January 28, 2015
Pros: 1 free meal per shift
Cons: no healthcare, no work compensation, personal vendettas
I usually start at 3, but I clocked in around 2. I was always on drive thru taking orders, taking cash, and packing my old orders. My co workers were a pleasure to work with , but not so much the management. The job was pretty much divided so not everyone got treated equally. I would have to say the downside to the job would be that nobody followed the same rules yet only a few had to deal with the consequences.
This company, at least the franchise that I worked under, is a great place to work. They train to appeal to the customers. I have learned a lot about the management field through this job. The upper management generally work with any issues that might arise and are pretty understandable in uneventful situations. The hardest part if the job would be the stress of the environment. Quickservice restaurants are not for everybody. The most enjoyable part is the speed at which the job takes. It's fast service, and the customers.
Can be stressfull and fun all in one day. I was employed a long time as a crew member and then advanced to a shift supervisor. It was interesting shifting postions. I liked having the responsibility of running a shift. The only down fall is the rate of turn over the store has. There have been many changes in store managers and in crew members.
Shift Manager (Former Employee), Saint Petersburg, FL – January 27, 2015
Pros: i would get my food half price and didnt have to drive to far to get there
Cons: would long hours but in the end it paid off
i would start my day off getting the resturant ready to open to make sure everyone who ate there would be happy and come back again. the hardest part of my job was firing someone i had knew.but i did enjoy the smiles the people faces when they had a great time eating there.

great co workers, learned to handle cash orders on register. learned to pack orders, and close as well as open the store. co workers are all very friendly and understanding. hardest part o the job was dealing with the rude customers.
Cook, Cashier, Drive-Thru (Former Employee), Beatrice, Ne – January 26, 2015
Pros: having fun and inspiring co-workers, helping others, learning multiple skills
Cons: being burned, smelling like a bucket of chicken every night
A day at KFC was filled with oil splashing, customers reiterating their love for the service, dedicated bosses, and quaint lessons about life. I learned how to truly figure out what people enjoy outside of the product sold, the service. Being in this environment made me confident as a leader, due to the two trainees I helped throughout my time working at KFC. My co-workers were all ambitious pioneers of life's potential, unafraid to speak their idealisms into the open air. What I most enjoyed was the conversations my boss Chrissy blessed us with. Her strong spirit taught me of the resilience all woman possess innately.
Cashier (Current Employee), Lincoln, NE – January 26, 2015
Well a typical work day would be steady and easy going. I learn everything but how to filter the fryers and management. The managers there are easy going and they are fun to be around. The co-workers at KFC are pretty good and they can be fun but sometimes they can just be a pain. The hardest part is have to work on the slowest days and have nothing to do. The best part about the job was the relaxed atmosphere in the whole store.
