The skills and experience you gain is great, you learn so much, meet many different people and work with different people. Working at KFC is a life long learning process, you start as a trainee and work your way up to which ever position you want to by growing your knowledge. Its the best experience because it makes you stronger physically and mentally.

Pros

Free lunch per shift worked, learn something new each day

Cons

Spend more time at work than home

I recognize them on all training and how they build new workers from having no experience to turn them into something

I was start working at the Kfc group as a Restaurant Manager .I previously had experience in furniture Retail from sales to Acting Manager.I definitely recognize them how they build their employees .They have a well build platform to satisfied their customers and a structure to train team members on a daily base.Team work are the Biggest key for them ,However they must learn to work on issues regarding employee salaries and benefits .I would still recommend people to work for the Kfc Group .

Pros

Free staff meals

Cons

Very long hours

Not reccomend to work for

I work for Kfc for 27 years. The first 23 years was a wonderful experience we were trained and care for by the owners. We were well paid and received bonusses and yearly incentives. Then we got new owners and everything changes all they cared for was money. They hired new people for less and find all legal ways to get rid of the old well paid ones. I gave my life for this company but sadly wasn't treat well at the end.

I rate kfc as a better place to work

KFC is not fair on management especially the one am from because is family business they were not treating us fairly. But what I rate them 100% is on developing, they can develop you from cashier, supervisor and to manager

Fun to work at KFC

You learn New thinks that you can apply at home and and any store that you buy your food at. Customer experience how they feel about your store makes you change the way you can better the store. Team work and let you team have a say in the goals and target that need to be achieved. Feedback and recognition is the best key to success.

Pros

Yes

Cons

Yes but you get paid for it.

exciting and fun

You need to be quick, fast food business. they have elaborated on my knowledge especially in the management side of my growth. I've learned to be patient, and understand people. The hardest part of my work was the disciplinary side of the system, you are encouraged to discipline a person but must reason and consider endless factors. it needs to simplified. I enjoyed putting smiles on my employees faces, with endless recognitions, this is for them to repeat their best performance

Very structured company in terms of tranning and policies

A demanding job where time is concerned the company invests a lot into your tanning and development there is a lot of room for growth. The work culture needs a bit of work as it does not filter downwards to every person in the company.

Pros

free meals

Cons

Staff welfare

Fun to work with

Just because i love people we always find a way to make ourselves feel at home. this is where we spend most of our time we need to make fun while we working hard to achieve the goals of the company and our goal. the nice thing about being here is to have a team like the one i have in my store no matter how hard the things can be they always come up with something that will make you forget about you problems a bit they always offer their shoulders to cry on.i have learned to love people but never forget to put myself in spot light while loving others. there are things that i always wish i can change but its beyond my control like favourism from the boss that kills the team moral. that the very one thing i do not like about my company. mistake are there no one is perfect in this world if you do not understand that word it is too bad for people you working with.

Pros

free meals
