This is based on an individual franchise,there are exceptional KFC companies out there

My work experience basically came down to the culture that was passed down from year to year.However the culture formulated in shops were not of best practices.Employees were deemed replaceable the moment they were done with their training and reduced to low level scum culture by their RGMs.most were unhappy and the staff turnover rate was starting to show so much that Yums eyebrows were raised.

Pros

One of the best Restaurants you could learn from

Cons

Working hours do not reflect benefits

Nice Workplace just very hard work

The workplace is fun and energetic but the hours are demanding and long. The recognition of qualifications is not done early enough in a career and thus is demotivating

it's an environment where you work with food you must be sure about the standards and understand everything about the love of the food.

You should always go for break through drive the sales to the top understand the standard of the store be a hard worker and know how to communicate and solve the problem

Pros

lunch it's for an hour

Cons

9 hours

Unfriendly environment, Slave labour

They only provide training. free lunch (if you can eat oily food 365 days a year) The subordinates are nice(some not all) Doing work not part of your job description. Running around fixing problems that Idiots caused Explaining the same thing over and over. Dealing with complaints due to being understaffed/overworked Taking responsibility for things that not your fault and paying for stock that got stolen or damaged by others.

Pros

Free lunch, manger training

Cons

Long hour, no overtime, 16 hours work days, Doing work not part of your job description, Working on holidays and sundays with no overtime, Underpaid for the amount of stress and responsibility
