Crew Member (Former Employee) – Thompson, MB – 18 June 2018
Working at KFC was a big step in my life as I was heading to my junior year in high school, I was playing sports at the moment and was working with KFC also, It was a good environment and the workplace was fun and suitable for a teen to work at, I was working every two days or sometimes every day during a weekday after school and practice.
Free food for break
working alone sometimes during drive thru rush hours.
Cook (Former Employee) – Merritt, BC – 17 June 2018
Loved working there, manager and other staff were really nice and fun people to be around. Wasn't too busy, but would get to be a little much. Never got more than minimum wage. Heard my manager quit due to changes in how higher ups wanted things to be run. Restaurant shut down shortly afterwards.
Cashier and Customer Service (Current Employee) – Pickering, ON – 7 June 2018
Let's start with the most enjoyable part of the job, the people you work with.
Everything else is horrible. You don"t clock yourself in when you start or leave. you get clocked out when the store closes at 10pm even though you are there until 10:30pm or later cleaning up. In 4 years there I have probably worked for $2000 for free. Second, every location has its own set of rules made up by the Area Manager. My location does not take breaks since we are constantly cutting hours and there is nobody to cover your position.
In summary, for a company as recognizable as KFC they do not really care about their employees or their brand image. They only care about MONEY and the PROFIT at the end of the day.
Cook/Cashier (Former Employee) – London, ON – 4 June 2018
We all want to be effective. We all want to show up to work, bright-eyed and bushy tailed and enjoy our day. At the same time, we want to show up for our life, for the people and activities we care about beyond the pantry. Especially in the restaurant industry, positive energy is infectious… and negative energy is contagious.
Crew member (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 2 June 2018
A usual day consists of handling the cash register as well as providing customer service, cleaning the store, helped packed the order by putting the food in the proper box and case to then give to the customer
I learned various customer service skills such as providing them with the best deals and hospitality to make them feel welcomed
Management was okay, I wished for more flexible hours however I understand the situation of the management
Cook (Former Employee) – Lawrence, ON – 30 May 2018
I would work the night shift and I learned how to cook the food that we served to our customers. My boss was nice she taught me how to do my job properly that most difficult part was keeping up with the order the most enjoyable part was being able to eat the food they have there for lunch.
Cashier/Line Worker (Former Employee) – Tillsonburg, ON – 29 May 2018
I found this place good to work at first, Always excited, but then i started being disrespected and treated not fairly. the managers walk all over students that work at their store. i mean if you got told you had to work with a doctors note if YOU not your managers you, couldnt find someone to work for you, would you not quit?
AREA MANAGER (Former Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 28 May 2018
When things are not going well our manager used to take away the employee benefits of 50% discount meal... This is a such a bad sign to the production employees that sometime are counting with this meal to support themselves.
Food Service Supervisor (Current Employee) – Prince Albert, SK – 20 May 2018
It has had been an experience for me working in Fast Food out of my country which is different,because back there we work for salary and here per hours. I really dont like how we work with shot staff most of the time,because it is almost impossible to give a very good service. And in almost three years the raise of rate just has had been of ten cents for us.
Cutomer Service (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 15 May 2018
The manager turns into a monster when she’s stressed, and somehow i always get blamed for everything when i’m trying my best managing the drive thru and helping with the expediting. But i did meet new friends (co-workers) because i worked there so it was a little fun.
