KFC experience report

  • Employee

I have been with this company for 4 years now. They have been so helpful to me & so I remain loyal to them.

Company Culture

I have a great boss and he leads an amazing crew!

Support from management

Absolutely. We have an incredible staff of knowledgeable people.

Teamwork

We have to work well together as a team, otherwise our shifts would be chaotic.

Freedom to work independently

We all have set positions at work, but we have side work to do in between orders. Sometimes, with certain coworkers, they have to be nudged a little to start a side project.

Internal Communication

We get group texts, have frequent meetings and have an ever-changing bulletin board with daily updates.

Gender Equality

We are a mostly male crew but I've ne we witnessed sexism.

Attitude towards older colleagues

My boss is very accommodating to all ages & abilities.

Career Development

There is always room for growth.

Overall compensation for your work

I feel I should be making more money for as long as I've worked there.

Office / Work Environment

We are regulated by OSHA, the health department & the fire department.

Environmental Friendliness

We do not have on-site recycling bins.

Work-Life Balance

I am disabled, with a chronic stomach disorder. My boss understands and allows me time off whenever necessary.

Company Image

It's an excellent company to work fod5.

Job Security

I know my job well and am confident that my position is safe in regards to my work ability.

Handicapped Accessibility

Yes, all throughout the parking lot.

Workplace Safety

We're required to wear uniforms, non-slip shoes and such.

Challenging Work

It's fast food, so it's a very fast-paced environment. That is really the only challenge, besides rude customers.

Inclusive / Diverse

We are part of a major restaurant chain, so our franchise owners do not give us much room for new ideas.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would implement mandatory 15 min breaks every 2 hours, allow employees to have 1 free individual meal per day, and offer family meal discounts.

What I like about the company

I recen6had some financial set backs. My company has an employee emergency fund set up to help us with difficult times. The program's coordinator quickly responded to my request for help & had my bills and rent paid in less than 3 days. She kept me & my family from being either without electricity or being homeless.

What I dislike about the company

I disapprove of my company's refusal to give us free meals, family meal discounts or host special employee events. I don't feel as though we are recognized indivually very often.
