Pros: free food
Cons: late nights
It was not a slow work enviroment lots of energy and lots of work always stayed busy and if i didnt move i would still be with the company. The hardest part was the late nights and the most enjoyable was the managments willingness to work with you to help promote you to meet your goals
Very challenaging job to run to brands out of one store
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Louisville,Ky – March 20, 2013
Cons: long days with no breaks
I find it less stressful to only focus on one brand at a time. The hardest part was when others would call in or come in late & you become short staffed & get behind . Meeting their speed times were very hard to maintain if this occurs.

Executive Administrative Assistant to VP, QA (Former Employee), Louisville, KY – January 14, 2013
Pros: great atmosphere.
Cons: very hard to move up and around within the company.
Overall a great company to work for. Most management is on board with a work/ life balance. My co-workers in every department that I worked in were great. Unfortunately, the company downsized, or I would still be working there.
General Manager of Operations (Former Employee), Houston, TX – January 7, 2013
Excellant company, valued their employees. My crew was always on time. That in life you should respect each other and don't choose favorites. My management teams were well trained and responsible indiviuals, which made my Job, a more rewarding experience. My team members were a great team of unique kids (15-18) yrs old. We respected each other, and – more... I would share my Bonuses with my entire crew. The hardest part was having to relieve an indivisual of the duties. We worked as a team, and drove sales, by serving high quality products, having a clean atmosphere, and being friendly. – less
IT Professional (Former Employee), Louisville, ky – September 3, 2012
I worked at Yum Restaurant support center in the IT department for 10 1/2 years. There were huge layoffs and 2009 and I was affected. They now continually layoff people. Instead of keeping the best and brightest, they keep the good ole boys. If you like playing politics, you'll love it here. They have a few people who are the 'darlings' of the organization. – more... Those few 'stars' are continually promoted. Not based on merit, but how much they rub noses with upper management. Too many games, too many Yum cheers, and not enough honesty. – less
Production Worker (Former Employee), Seabrook, NH – August 16, 2012
Pros: fun, productive, great coworkers, free choice in music on the radio, very good amount of hours.
Cons: low pay
Easily able to find a job needed doing, always kept busy. Got along with the employees very well in and sometimes out of work as well. Manager was very laid back and easy-going while knowing how to handle any situation if it got down to it. I learned a lot about how to satisfy a customer no matter what and how to work by functioning proficiently, organized – more... and well-timed resulting in the elimination of any overtime hours from other employees. – less
Area Coach (Former Employee), Philadelphia, PA – August 10, 2012
Pros: great leaders throughout the brand to work with
Cons: organization - brand culture
Review daily results, follow-up with RGM's daily on opportunity or great results, daily feedback via email or phone calls with corp and in field visits to restaurants. I learned a lot about details and daily process to achieve Breakthrough Results. Also, I learned the true meaning of people development through building internal know-how in each part – more... of the restaurant team. I worked with a talented group of managers that were eager to learn more and advance their careers. It was great working with my peers on a daily basis and truly achieving results as a team. I am very organized and there was numerous times that the brand was not in terms of scheduling meetings/conference calls with a complete disregard for others time. The recognition culture was seeded day 1, which in return created a "winning" mindset from the team member position and up. – less
