Till Operator (Former Employee) – Edinburgh – 13 January 2019
The management was not very good as they were not very flexible with each member of staff needs and very very strict. The hardest part of the job was having to clean the staff toilets with a sponge and water, no gloves or cleaning products were provided.

Company is terrible you can apply for a job having all the right experience and flexibility and they don’t even bother replying or even looking at your application they need to sort it out instead of wasting peoples time
TEAM MEMBER (Former Employee) – Edinburgh – 11 January 2019
I liked working there because of the people I worked with I got on with most people and had a laugh while working which make that time go faster. It was also just up the road from my home so not far at all. The pay was minimum wage though and the work was hard believe it on not it wasn’t worth the money looking back now.
Team Member - Part Time (Former Employee) – Warrington, Cheshire – 10 January 2019
Poorly managed. Consistent lack of staff which made providing a high level of customer service extremely difficult. Minimum wage for unsociable hours and being constantly run off your feet due to incapable staff members.
Crew Member (Current Employee) – Northern Ireland – 10 January 2019
Working at KFC is very fun, and exiting. Cleaning the place after closing is bit annoying, but there is always that 1 guy who will put some of his class tunes over the PT system to make it more bearable. You meet some class people and make new friends too! You get to meet people that you would otherwise not meet or even talk to.
All the managers in my branch are dead on and the staff are great craick!!! Love it! :P
Cook/Chef (Former Employee) – Long Eaton, Derbyshire – 10 January 2019
A typical day at work starts at 4:00pm till 11:00pm. I have to follow all of the procedures for cooking and keep my workplace clean. I have learned everything about how to prepare the food, how to use the machines and how to clean the kitchen before closing. The management and the managers were great. The hardest part of the job was to clean the fryers before closing the store. The most enjoyable part was comunicating with the other people from the staff.
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Rhuddlan – 8 January 2019
Some rude staff members that are difficult to get along with, a lot of them calling in sick, management was a joke and had no idea what they were doing, putting me in bad hours and days when i requested certain times and hours due to exams.
Long shifts, unfair pay rate, bad management, bad shift placement.
Team Member (Former Employee) – Armagh, County Armagh – 8 January 2019
Horrible straight from the induction day where we ticked off all the training guide booklets for new employees before even having worked a shift. I was also given half dirty uniforms in a large KFC paper bag from under the counter that was clearly just thrown in on the day. Since then it was horrid management from shift runners and the store manager offering no help or support from then to help, as by my second shift I was left on Drive Thru to operate it myself with no more than 2 hours experience. This involved horrible headsets that have low volume that cant be increased and barely stay on your head. Working on the front was not as bad as you could at east communicate with customers slightly better but the other staff put you under so much pressure when you have had so little training that it become intolerable too eventually. I eventually found my favourite part of the job to be the cleaning as I at least knew what to do there and didn't feel stressed. Culture was miserable as most shift runners are from outside the UK as bark orders at you, while other staff spend all day talking behind your back without any intent of helping you. Barely lasted in the job and left once I had a suitable reason in order to keep my sanity.
Would never recommend to anyone, at least not in this branch. If training protocol is followed somewhere else I could see it not being as bad as culture may also be different there.
KFC Team Member (Current Employee) – Newport – 7 January 2019
Management was ran well, everyone was hard working and always doing a task. I learnt a lot during the time working here , such as how the food was prepared. Enjoyable part of the job was working with lovely people.
GENERAL MANAGER (Former Employee) – Woking, Surrey – 6 January 2019
To arrive with the team to set up for the days business. To plan the work rate for all the staff on the daily rota to test the functionality of all the equipment to ensure it is fit for purpose form a food safety/ health and safety perspective
Customer Service & Kitchen Assistant (Current Employee) – Kingsthorpe, Northamptonshire – 4 January 2019
On your feet for long periods of time. I have learnt how to meet customers satisfaction and how to work in a team. Management are supportive toward their employees. The culture is friendly and the employees are like family. The hardest part of my job is trying to ensure that everything runs smoothly and is done on time so that customers are happy with our product and services. The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to interact with the customers and the staff.
