Its a busy day,customers are cooperative and being generous to the add hope foundation

Working there isn't too bad it's just the salary is definitely too low for people who work that hard,kfc should probably hire their own cleaners because I've been standing and working for 9 hours now I have to clean the building before going home ,crazy

Pros

Employers treat you like a animal like you have nk rights, like they own you, you cant have a social life outside work

Have to work workplace

Manages are rude. They bring their problems to work and take it out on their staff. Shift work, transport comes when it wants to, management do nothing about it. You work till 10 then get home 1:30 for the earliest.. You have to come in early and get home late. But they only pay you for 8 hours.

Pros

Free luncgh

Cons

Long hours, have to rush on everything. Managers rude, transport issues. Low pay.

It's a fun work place

Working at KFC it's great because you get to learn different things from cooking the chicken making burgers which it's also fun.What is the problem and made me to resign is the management in the store, the owner of the KFC was paying us very well I won't lie, but the problem was with the managers that we were working with on a daily basis. Only one manager was good. I think if they could hire people with management skills or since they take managers from the staff then they train them on how to be good managers

Pros

Free lunch

Cons

Long hours, being a general worker doing all duties from cleaning, gardening if they have one, cooking and serving the customers

fast paced environment and fun

i enjoyed the night shift. i learned a lot from expediting to cashiering, the most job i did was being a cashier.Not all managers are nice but have to do but you are entitled to do.Hardest part was when you have to move all the kitchen steel cabinet and clean,and they told you Silver must be silver . I mostly enjoyed working as cashier especially on the night shift you meet different and you learn everything.

Pros

free lunch

Cons

break time short
