A typical day in KFC is arriving to work getting started as soon as you can, going to your station for that shift and getting straight into it. If you are on drive thru till you go straight to that and serve any customers. In between cars you can help out your other peers if their particular station is busy.
Pros
Staff discount
Cons
Sometimes no break depending on how busy & minimum wage

I use to work for the company but in the beginning was bit hard for me.Then I left the job.But good people there.Was a bit hard to make chicken and look after what you have to take out of the fridge and freezer then write it on a paper.Then go back on the making line then look after the machines.Wash your hands each time before start to making another bag of the chicken.
Pros
Yes
Cons
Good hours

I have worked at KFC for a year now, I had an interview with a couple of members of the management team and was offered a job on the spot. My coworkers are all really great to work with, and if it gets too stressful there is always someone to talk to and the management listens if you want to change the position you are working on. A typical day can get pretty busy around lunchtime, but seeing profits increase and smiling customers us really rewarding. I have learned to communicate better and put myself forward for opportunities. The hardest part of the job can be time management, but you are never penalised for this. The most enjoyable part of the job is learning new skills and making loads of new friends with co-workers. I would definitely recommend KFC as a first job.
Pros
Free lunch
Cons
Stressful peak times

KFC Hereford is one of the best places I have worked for. It was my first proper job.it was great firstly due to its flexible hours. This is something that I needed at the time, due to being at college. The manger there is really understanding and always looks after his staff.it is a great first job and a good way of getting experience and some money, if you are prepared to work hard well on shift, then the management will look after you.Although the pay isn't the best, you do get rewarded for being a good employee. They have a good reward system.Overall I enjoyed working at KFC Hereford and I am still in contact with some of the team as they were the main reason I enjoyed my time there.
Pros
Great mangement, great team and free food
Cons
low pay

Essentially all of Norfolks managers other than a few exceptions are a bunch of children spitting their dummies out at the slightest inconvenience. Alright for a temp job but unless you want horrible hours and school like cliques that if your not in means you do all the naff work and others work avoid.The free chicken is the only positive 👍
Pros
Free chicken
Cons
Everything else

I started in my last year of college. Managers where unprofessional and Always spoke about inappropriate topics around younger staff members which I personally feel is unacceptable. I would not recommend to any child that’s just left school (16). They had very flexible hours so you could change them when you needed too. Some friendly staff members that really help and guide you when you new. They do not follow all health and safety guidelines all the time only when the head managers come into supervise.I got accepted to the job the same day. Not everyone was treated fearly. Depending on your gender and if you managers favoured you, you could potentially get away with a lot. So if your a man and you don’t listen and don’t want to follow rules but still want to get paid .... This is the job for you!! The best part about the job was meeting genuinely nice people. I recommend this job for people with thick skin!
Pros
Free lunches £5 maximum, flexible hours
Cons
Discriminative behaviours from colleague’s and managers, unprofessional and inappropriate conversations, required to do things that are not in your job description or trained for, unhygienic.

Cons
Poor managers from top to bottom

When i applied for this job position I believed that I would receive the correct training. I was disappointed with how KFC is organised to train new staff as the is not a system in place. I asked other staff members how they wear trained and they all received the online testes however some of the staff members received supervisor support during their 1st few weeks. My time at KFC was not as I expected as I thought after doing the online test and work I would always be working with a supervisor that would show me and explain to me how to do my job. This was not what happened I did not have any supervisors support and I did not receive help from management. I think KFC needs to be more organised with new staff I also feel judged when they let me go as I was only working on the floor my 5th shift and i feel lie they did not give me more time to learn how to do my job.

KFC as a company only think about the top managers. The company don't think about the junior staff, the top executive only think of their welfare. There is no fun at KFC, one have to work with less staff and end with stressed.
Pros
Yes free lunch.
Cons
Less hours minimum pay
