management is unskilled in dealing with issues amongst peers. Job isn't stressful although your schedule constantly change sometimes without your knowledge.

Crew Member

Bangor, ME - March 4, 2020

Not sure

I have a lot of ups and downs with it, a lot to do with management and how they treat employees. Always was promised a promotion and in the years I never got it. When I would have to miss work i would let them know ahead of time and it was for my children not having school or being sick. As well as parents

Charlotte, NC - March 4, 2020


I appreciate the opportunity that they gave me. They are good people. The management is willing to help you succeed in the performance of your job. It's a good place to work.


Cook/Team Member

Milwaukee, WI - March 4, 2020

Good place to start learning the ins and outs of fast food

I worked the night shift so I can't speak for the day shift. Night shift is very busy and hectic. Managers are constantly asking for chicken even if all the fryers are taken. They barely use manners which made it hard to do things for them. There is not much respect where i was working.



Hudson, NC - March 4, 2020

Great start-out job for those that need experience.

Staff is friendly and you will always be on your toes when working there. The Restaurant is very clean (inside and out) and the management is usually on top of things.


Cashier/Customer Service

Herriman, UT - March 4, 2020

Not happy

The took 2 months to get me in the system and then I only got 15 to 20 hours after telling them I needed full time hours was not happy with them the customers weren't happy with the customer service



Houston, TX - March 3, 2020

Fast paced work environment

This job was hard for me initially because of my inexperience, but also because of my ignorance about the treatment of food service workers. I learned quickly to keep up with the fast-paced environment. Often I found myself doing many jobs at once making orders for drive-through, stocking up on supplies, taking/making orders for my front counter, and also pre-packing up food such as sides, and cookies for orders in advance. As a staff, I think we often found ourselves disconnected from one another with everyone trying simply to do their job and not much else. However, we did come together to help one another out when we could, and I feel we worked better that way. I worked with stocking, also with the maintenance of the lobby, and bathroom facilities. Soon after the first week of work I learned to navigate the world of foodservice in a way that I found allowed me to maintain an enjoyable guest experience all the while protecting my lucidity.

KFC was a great place to work.

Kfc was a nice and fun place to work. Management was GREAT. I’m glad I chose it as my first job. Working there has helped me with my communication skills.


Customer Service Representative

Jeffersonville, IN - March 3, 2020

Management didn't care

Management only treated you good if you kissed their butt. If you had problems, you had to deal with it on your own. If you asked for more hours or a promotion, your hours got cut until they were nonexistent.


Team Member/Cashier

Monmouth, OR - March 3, 2020

Healthy place to work at

The people and management are awesome! The hours are really flexible. It’s just a really good overall place to work at. I’ve never had any issue working there before.


Fast line cook

Loveland, CO - March 3, 2020

over all this is not a good place to work

Wouldn’t not recommend this job to anyone ever you don’t advance at this place and they don’t care if you want to work in a certain position will put you where they need you and do not listen if you tell them you feel comfortable in another position and would like to work that don’t listen to your availability or what works best for you.

Hard workers and the customers

The customers were the best part of my day i was always given complements and I always succeeded with what they wanted or need we always made sure we put a smile on our customers face


Team member

Craig, CO - March 2, 2020

It’s a good job

I excelled working for kfc, it was a high paced job where your constantly going and on your feet. Which happens to be good for me because I am a busy body and don’t like just standing around and I always have interest in furthering my education and wanting to move up in the company
