front cashier/drive thru (Former Employee), kelowna,BC – December 4, 2013
Pros: free food on break
Cons: very aggressive customers
Over all the a typical day at work was hectic, fast paced and stressful. I learned how to deal with aggravated customers, and people in general. learned how to do things quicker so jobs would be done more efficiently. My coworkers were a lot older than me, they had experience and were very friendly and protective over me because I was the youngest of – more... the group. The hardest part of the job was dealing with the angry customers that no matter what you did they were unhappy . most enjoyable part of the shift was near the end when things would calm down and you would get the more relaxed and friendly customers. – less
Store Assistant (Former Employee), Toronto, ON – November 22, 2013
Pros: free lunches
Cons: standing in heated areas
A typical day at work means serving a lot of customers, preparing their orders on time and cleaning the store. I learned how to manage my time and prepare orders fast and accurate. The store management is very organized and everything in the store works accordingly. My co-workers were friendly and co-operative. The hardest part of the job was mastering – more... all the menus during the short training period. The most enjoyable part of the job was preparing the orders. – less
Manager Assistant (Former Employee), 天津市, C28 – November 13, 2013
The days I work in KFC are really memorable. Happy, tired, high pressure, usually have multiple-task at the same time. You need to manage time well and handle all of them. Sometimes makes you like a superman, that's feel very good.
There's a period, a new restaurant is going to open, so there are lots of freshman are training in my restaurant sometimes. – more... That day I was had over 20 guys,15 belong to my restaurant and 6 for the new restaurant. 5 of them are cashier and 1 delivery guy. The problem is I don't need so many cashier, it is totally over-needed. So I have to adjust them to reduce the labour expense. I remove 5 cashier who belong to my restaurant, keep one to tutor the freshman. Some of them would like to rest, so I cut their time after they accept. 2 of them don't want to rest so I put them to the sandwich maker position because they have multiple-skill for both cashier and maker. And exchange the current makers to rest. And when the rush hour is coming they could be back with full of energy. So I always train them at least to know 2 positions. I know this because I was the multiple-skill guy when I was not a manager – less

Cashier (Former Employee), Toronto, ON – November 8, 2013
Pros: free food
I was able to move around in various positions and try new things. I was able to meet different people and at a younger age, learn about myself and responsibility. I didn't mind the work and it was over all a good experience.
Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee), Ottawa, ON – November 7, 2013
It is easy to get consumed by the amount of work that needs to be completed by the time the store opens. While working in a mall there are many perks and falls. Having great co-workers that help with do their part makes it easier to complete a task. Management is understanding and try to imply what the employee needs. The hardest part of the job is – more... when one does not do their job correctly or at all it makes it harder for some workers. The most enjoyable part of the job is working with different people, and customers. – less

Pros: only on birhday free lunch and your working that day.
Cons: yes if you need to or short of workers that day.
fun place to work people are fun, if everyone is so plane and not happy as a customer you see that. the bosses ask for don't bring your probles to work , it brings everyone down. have a joke here and there as long as no one is in the store. management treats everyone fair.

Meeting different people every day will thrill you
Shift Coordinator (Former Employee), Vaughan, ON – October 9, 2013
Cons: longer hours
When the managers in higher level find you that you are working well, they will just give you a hope that you will move higher in the company but there is no way of moving. They just want more out of you to make their job easy. Other than that, there is nothing. This is not a company if you want to move higher or develop your self. There are no employee – more... assessments, no reviews or salary increase. This company just want to survive in the competitive market but they would not even know what they are doing. – less
Cool co-workers with the occasional shotty manager
Cashier (Former Employee), Etobicoke,Onatario – October 6, 2013
Pros: playing personal music when closing, decent wage, free food at the end of the night, discounts of day stuff, lots of hours
Cons: shotty management, "chicken manager", drive thru mic not working after it rained
I spent 1 year at Kfc?Taco bell with mixed results. For starters I was really good for my job and was even given a free movie pass because I upsold the most items for several months. There were people of all cultures working and they were all treated with respect. Some co workers I am still friends with with some of co workers. The management was a – more... hit and a miss. While the majority of it was pretty good there was one manager who was also our chicken cook who would leave the store for a dr's appointment (which is understandable) except he would not find anyone to replace him so our KFC side had no chicken for hours at a time. Our Drive thru microphone was shotty at best and not work on occasions. Several people did not respect the job and would not call in when they were either late or were "sick". I did get any food that was left over at night and was asked to promoted to Shift leader shortly before I left KFC/Taco Bell. I also go to know some of the customer which I liked. I also got a decent hours because a day time co workers decided to leave giving me his hours. – less
Shift Manager (Current Employee), Ottawa, ON – October 3, 2013
I am a shift manager at KFC but have to do cash sometimes when needed and train new employees. I have learned how to deal with people and a good customer service. The hardest part of the job was standing all day. Most enjoyable part is when we have new promotions going on we have to give samples to customers to try.
CASHIER/ LINE COOK (Former Employee), Toronto, ON – October 1, 2013
highly pressurized environment to work in, not much room for growth. Highly coordinated and organized when taking orders. Co-workers were a pleasure to work with. Hardest job is to keep everyone on the same page. Most satisfying job is the result of keeping everything on top of one another.
