Worst Job

3.11

Company culture

There's not to much diversity

Support from Management

Management is horrible. They don't set realistic expectations. They want you to do more work for less money. The employees barely have say in anything.

Teamwork

The employees do work well but at the same time only look out for themselves.

Level of Autonomy

Very trustworthy.

Communication

The communication is horrible,the schedule is and put up until the week of and at any given time they will make random mandatory meetings.

Gender Equality

Everyone is treated the same.

Attitude towards older colleagues

KFC hires older workers. Senior colleagues are not supported by the company

Career Development

Career advancement is offered at a low salary increase.

Overall Compensation for your work

You are not fairly compensated for your work, they want you to do way more than they want to pay you.

Office/Work Environment

The heating and AC ventilation constantly needs repairs and may not be working. I believe the store just needs to be remodeled.

Eco-consciousness

This company is somewhat showing concern for the environment by replacing the paper towels in the bathrooms with air dryers

Work-Life Balance

This company does not value work life balance they want you to work six and seven days a week. Families are not take it into consideration they want you to do whatever it takes to get the job done. However I do not feel peer pressure to work more hours

Company Image

I am not proud to work for this company

Job security

My job is not stable they will cut your hours at any given time and they also like to eliminate positions at any given time.

Handicap Accessibility

It is somewhat handicapped accessible.

Workplace Safety

The environment is pretty safe for the most part

Challenging Work

The work is somewhat challenging.

Inclusive/Diverse

Company does not necessarily valued diversity

Suggestions for improvement

  • Management needs to learn how to talk to people

I dislike about the employer

This company does not want to pay you what you are worth

Company culture

No words

Support from Management

The managers never motivated anyone they stayed in the office, and often times were rude to crew members in front of customers.

Teamwork

If i was a team leader this is what it would be like, Everybody would have a position, prep cook, cashier, janitorial. I would not tolerate disrespect of any kind to anyone. I would help my team and make it pleasant at work. Give breaks everyday by state law. But nobody does that so no team work doesnt exsist. T.E.A.M.- TOGETHER EVERYONE ACOMPLISHES MORE

Level of Autonomy

All the time

Communication

Nope, all people do is gossip

Support from Management

We have great management as in GM and assistant manager. However our shifts can use a lot more training.

Teamwork

The teamwork is horrible. Majority of the staff is lazy and feel they do not have to work. They do not do more than their schedule. IT makes it harder on the other employees and that is not fair.

Communication

poor

Attitude towards older colleagues

Some do not respect others meaning employees mainly.

Career Development

Better shifts leaders.

Overall Compensation for your work

the ones that deserve it hard work goes unnoticed

Challenging Work

Challenge everyone to work together.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Improve their shifts

I like about the employer

I have worked in fast foods since I was 16. I love working with people. Even though I work in fast foods I still have an impact on peoples lives. Sometimes people can be having the worst day but a positive attitude and a smile can do some good.

I dislike about the employer

I don't like the fact majority of the co- workers do not work and put more work on two of the employees and the managers.
