Fun place to work
It was fun but when they had no training so you had to figure things on your own which wasn't as fun because you got lost a-lot. i had a few customers yell at me when i wasnt aware of new items or packaging.
Pros
good people
Cons
no training

Management poor
Bad experience with managers and quit on my own terms. When i had mildly made a rookie mistake, a manager onsite would ridicule me and make me feel really bad about the mistake.
Cons
extremely demanding

Great store for you first job
KFC is a great fast food restaurant for someone getting there first job. It gives the worker basic responsibilities and most of the work colleges are around ages of 15-19. So for someone getting there first job as a teen your in a comfortable environment

Fast-Paced work environment, Lacking Effective Management
Working at my store was great for the most part. The team is great to work with, the environment is great for the most part. The culture of the store is very relaxed and friendly. Unfortunately the management can be pretty garbage. Constantly implementing new, ineffective programs and technology that were not properly tested and constantly were a hassle. The particular manager I worked under seemed to think he is better than everyone working for him, constantly correcting people, rearranging the store to "improve" things.

Productive, fun and collaborate workplace
The members are very cooperative and collaborative. They help each other in any way possible. The work is very fast-paced but there is sufficient downtime after some time.

was very unprofessional
It taught me how sometimes in a workplace you can feel unvalued but instead of giving up you should continue to work hard and get through it. this was my first job but I would not recommend as it was very unprofessional and badly managed.
Pros
free lunch when filled out forms
Cons
bad management

Productive & good Work life balance
Great Place to work! Many things to learn & good collaborative culture, leading with heartstyles. Got to work on different projects while working across cross-functional teams. They pay well & have good perks like Half Day Fridays, Free Parking & monthly team bonding activities.

Productive and fun workplace
A good work environment to first start working at. It gives you the opportunity to gain work experience like working with a cash register, interacting with customers and looking after the restuarant.

Trash
Terrible place to work. I would finish school go to work and not finish until midnight at times trying to close shop with incompetent staff. Even though we couldn't do 2 closes p/week regularly would work 4-5. Some of the managers are unpleasant My boss at the time tried to fire me because I was assaulted by a customer.
