Cashier and Packer (Former Employee) – Bronx, NY – May 20, 2016
On a busy day, we were always able to keep up with the pace because of the training we had prior to getting the position. The management was always helpful in this skill set because they pushed us to stay on top of our game. We were a strong team because of the great communication skills and customer service skills we developed over time. KFC was a friendly and energetic environment to work and be in. My co-workers were supportive, and never put themselves first. We always helped each other in executing our tasks effectively. I enjoyed being a worker here at KFC because I've learned so much on how to become the best worker I could be, and I've grown into one.
Free lunches, meeting new friendly people, learn a lot.
short breaks, low pay for such hard work, hot during the summer(no AC)
Crew Member (Former Employee) – New Port Richey, FL – January 2, 2016
A typical day at work was productive and busy. I honestly didn't learn anything from this job that I didn't already know. Management was unreliable, unorganized and would be very disrespectful to fellow co-workers. My co-workers were awesome. Always respectful, caring, and always on top of their job. The hardest part of the job was trying to clean the restaurant at night and be done by a certain time while customers were still coming into the lobby. The most enjoyable part of the day was whenever I had downtime to clean and restock the lobby and cashier area.
General Manager (Current Employee) – Peoria, AZ – May 31, 2016
Being in management is very secure, The job itself is a lot of fun if you find challenging and fast paced work environments to be fun, as I do. I would say the hardest part of the job is the problem solving, I happen to be very good at it, as I have been there for five years. But when a piece of equipment goes down, sometimes you will need to try to fix the equipment or come up with an alternative form while still having the final product come out to standard. Other than that the job itself very easy and self explanatory, following the procedures and standards is the easiest. and when you have a strong team working together, the entire store is an exciting place to be.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Syracuse, NY – January 28, 2016
A typical day at work is taking orders on the register and drive thru, also making sure you have the customer's order right and make sure they are satisfied with your company's services. As far as management if there is any issue with a customer they are very good at handling the situation. The hardest part of the job was sometimes getting slammed at lunchtime but i was able to manage.
free lunch 50% discount
only thing i can say is negativity in the workplace(which i was never involved in)
Team Member (Current Employee) – Mesa az – October 15, 2015
the management is bad and how they make chicken is bad they always use expired chicken which is the nastiest food ever. i dont like working there i just quit the other day cause ive been in that place for over 3 years now and i never had a single raise yet
The worst part about working for KFC was how gross it was. There was old chicken behind the heaters, old chicken was used for the pot pies, no gloves were used to make sandwiches and you had to use your bear arms to mix the coleslaw. I also was bullied by the co-workers. One time a co-worker came in on her day off and ordered ten of the hardest sandwiches to make and stood at the counter and watched while her and her friends laughed at me and made fun of me. The manager did not care one bit. Another time, the manager let me have off early so another co-worker took my purse and threw it on the ground and got in my face and started yelling at me and the manager did nothing so I quit. I do not recommend this store to people wanting to work or to customers. The manager also took extra money out of my pay check without me knowing for me eating food on my break when I never ate there anymore because of how old the chicken was.
Bad management, bad co-workers, dirty store and harassment
Customer Service (Current Employee) – Austin, TX – August 29, 2015
Pretty nice place to start working but won't consider it as a career. Management is decent, co-workers are great. The hardest part of the job i would say when it gets busy, because management don't schedule enough people in a shift so everything is a challenge. And the most enjoyable would be the people i work with, there is always team work and positive attitudes.
Crew member (Former Employee) – Kentwood, MI – March 16, 2016
At KFC we would get there in the morning and get chicken going, making coleslaw getting biscuits going and stocked, Make sure everything is stocked and ready to go for when the doors open. What I learned to call chicken and take orders, The management was great there. The co-workers were fun to work with. The job was not very hard. The most enjoyable part of the job was the customers

Cashier (Former Employee) – Cleveland, OH – April 4, 2016
Very busy and slow at times. I learned how to multitask and handle tough customers and serve at a timely fashion. the hardest part of the job was dealing with tough customers when running out of a product. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting the sales quote for the day. Management was horrible, there was always new management.
Always felt like I was getting the "short end of the stick" so to speak.
Cashier/Packer/Dish (Former Employee) – Grand, VLG – June 15, 2015
Working as a Kedis Enterprise employee was nothing less of a humbling experience. I learned how to balance and maintain a cash drawer, which gave me 2+ years of monetary experience, and how to accommodate the needs of our cherished customers. I do not regret working for such a franchise, although, the management was never one that I favored. We were constantly short-staffed so I, as more of a tenure employee, had to often pick up four-five closing shifts a week to compensate. Not to mention that I trained the newcomers. I left the job because after two years I was never given a raise. I had no benefits, and my job was not secured by any such union. The most enjoyable part of the job had to be the coworkers I had.
Not much leeway for an advancement to the managerial role.
Honestly, felt like there was too much favoritism towards management from home office. Franchise owners were not on front line of co. Considering I have over twenty years experience in this field, not once was I able prove my worth. There was also no room for advancement or any kind of benefits.
Team Leader (Former Employee) – Citrus Heights, CA – March 19, 2016
This was my first job while in high school and this truly was an experince for me. It taught me to have customer service skills and phone skills. I enjoyed my co workers we definitley were a team. I often worked morning and late night shifts.During my time there I always wanted to learn more and expand my experience.
Cook (Former Employee) – San Francisco, CA 94103 – June 10, 2016
When working the morning shift, the position requires the cook to clean the parking lot to maintain a clean environment that customers would like to dine at. Cooking multiple types of chicken by dipping them in water, flouring them, and strategically placing them into a cage before frying them by following guidelines on where to put each piece to maximize cooking the chicken well. A dynamic position where the cook can be called to the front to work as a cashier if the occasion demanded it. Satisfying when a customer compliments the chicken the way it was made by the worker.
Diverse, friendly environment provided by workers
A lot of continuous heavylifting throughout shifts
Sometimes its very stressful. You learn that everybody isnt what you think they are. Co-workers have bad attitudes. The hardest part is not liking the people you work with and the overall morale of the store is not a good one. Most enjoyable is clocking out.
Great job for teens but not for long term employment.
Customer Service (Former Employee) – Folsom, CA – August 23, 2015
When I worked there management was extremely disrespectful, confrontational and did not want to follow health and safety procedures. There was no room to move up or promote unless you let management walk all over you and nobody took work seriously. A typical day at work there involves prepping for both day and night shifts, frying chicken because the cook is always smoking in the freezer, taking drive-thru and over the counter orders, cleaning the dining area, taking out garbage, washing dishes, deboning chicken and cleaning the freezers. The most enjoyable part of the day is the regular customers that come in everyday and acknowledge how hard you work, they laugh with you, joke with you and brighten your day.
