Former employee of KFC, this company is horrendous to work for. There are not benefits or appraisles in which you receive for being good at your job. Management team is based on how long the member has been working within the company and not on their abilities and skills. As a former employee i was approached many of times for a promotion based on by ability , this was never achieved due to managers having favourites. Hourly pay is disgusting , there are many different job roles in which you have to undertake while working there, this can be cleaning toilets then expecting to serve people straight away due to the low storage of staff on every shift there is . The abuse you receive from customer is vile, you are constantly being called ' dump' 'stupid' 'incapable' .
Constantly understaffed and call you to come in . Those whom always phone in sick get away with it , but genuine people who pick up shifts and are always there have abuse and shifts taken off them due to this .

Working at KFC is requires you to do fairly easy tasks and deal with everyday people. It is character building as because you don't deal with the highest of clientele, so you will have to deal with problems that they present to you. However, overall it is a fairly uneventful, repetitive low paid work.
Team Member (Former Employee) – Litherland – 2 July 2018
As a young person was taken advantage of and given the harder nighttime shifts. Overall the management was good, and i got on with most of the staff, however some of the elder employees were often given preferential treatment and frequently tried to undermine younger members of staff. The pay for under 21s is terrible and results in lots of work for little reward.
Very little pay and poor communication of the infor.ation
Cashier (Former Employee) – Aylesbury – 26 June 2018
The pay for under 18 is as low as 4.20 an hour, and communication of the work information such as working hours for the week, is very poor. You have to stay up until late at night every Sunday to receive the timetable an you could find out you are working on days you said you can't work which is disappointing. Also I had issues with receiving my pay on time. And when I left it didn't receive my holiday pay and p45 until 6 months later. But the team is very friendly.

The people i worked with made the work enjoyable. I got to know some great people which really boosted the morale of workers as the teamwork was better then you would expect. The management was usually fair but sometimes there was poor communication with them. Paid training was given which made the work a lot clearer in what you need to do and no experience is needed to be able to work here.
Free lunches, holidays, flexible hours, good training
Cashier/Sales Assistant (Current Employee) – White Rose, IN – 8 June 2018
when I joined kfc it was approaching Christmas so I had to learn how to become a cashier and how to get people served faster than ive ever had to before. I was dedicated that I could become what my managers wanted out of me . when I first joined my weekly hours would be up to 70 hours a week with 21 hours of college on top of that.
The job role which was given to me was a cook. As usual the cook would be responsible for the product to be on time a reduce delays. This to avoid rush hour clashes/run out. As far as i have worked there the working environment is always vibrant, thus I,v enjoyed it.
Team Leader (Former Employee) – Bristol – 5 June 2018
I started off as a team member and after half a year progressed to Team Leader. The pay was shocking as team member at my age being 4.50 but we got pay rises and I slowly got up to 6.50 then 8.10 A’s team leader!
You can advance up if you show that you care and do a good job.
Management is eh but what do you expect.
In the end I quit because of stress. Customers are aggressive and start physical fights and rude.
Also! Pay was terrible in the sense that sometimes you wouldn’t get payed and store manager wouldn’t fix issues. Underpayment for holidays too. Probably just my store but who knows.
