It's a stepping stone.

Start here, get to the management position quickly, stay a few years, then run to someplace that pays well and is worth the time. Overall not worth staying there for any serious amount of time.

Harman Managment

If you want to get paid what you’re worth don’t work here. Just don’t do it don’t want you. Improper training for employees. If you have to hire people as a manager good luck

Pros

Paid weekly

Cons

Over worked under paid

Productive and a fun workplace. With flexible schedules

I'm the GM of the KFC and it's a great place to work. I've been there 12+ years. Great leadership and good pay. Easy-going management. Room to advance within the company.

It’s ok

Love my team, but it is a stressful job. Great job to have for starter experience in management though. As a general manager, be prepared for long days and sometimes no days off, depending on the staffing and labor situation for that given week.

Too many hours

Staffing shortages created intense challenges. Corporate needed to consider making adjustments due to these shortages but refused to open any dialogue to mitigate the damage to team members and guests. Was sad to leave but culture was destructive as if to say “we’ll run it like this and there’s nothing you can do about it cause we’re making money hand over fist”.

I loved the people in my store

The people in the store I worked with was great. Managers above me didn't care about the employees or their health or if the person running the store was trained properly

It all depends

It all depends on the store you work at. Some stores are extremely organized and some are not. You'll be able to tell within the first 10 minutes of you being there

Pros

Advancement, free food, laid back for the most part

Mandatory 10 hour shifts 5 days a week for management

I actually loved being the GM of KFC. My only reason for leaving was that I was not given the store I was hired for. Instead I was asked to fill in for a couple months at a KFC farther from my home, when I was promised the KFC very close to home. Work/Home life balance was not acceptible. Cared more about the hours than the work and progress my store was making.

Nothing

Staff and workers are great it’s the area managers that make this job very difficult, no help no guide just constant criticism. It makes for a long day and feels like un achievable goals are constantly being thrown at you

Pros

Nothing

Cons

Poor area managers

Horrible place to work.

Very nasty stores. Roaches , old motor oil looking grease, poor culture, literally you work 3-4 positions daily. No extra pay for going the extra mile. Just all around the worst company I have ever worked for.

Paris and Potter KFC franchise

This franchise does NOT care about the employees working for them. They work you to death and do not listen to the concerns coming from crew or store management. Their isn’t enough words or space here to honestly describe how horrible that company is. DO NOT DO NOT DO NOT WORK FOR THEM EVER. THEY ARE GIVING KFC A BAD NAME

Free lunch

Cons

No breaks

Long Hours

Salaried so required to work at least 50 hours per week. Almost no opportunity to advance to above restaurant management even with twenty years experience with the company. Your team is what makes the job enjoyable, but they really don’t get paid fairly for what is expected of them.

Pros

Free Food

Cons

Poor work/life balance
