  • Best thing

    The free food and packing. I also do like most of my coworkers where I work.

    Worst thing

    The team leaders being sexist and not giving as many hours to young people which they’ve asked to do. Unpaid breaks


    KFC Employee, December 2021

  • Best thing

    the free food and the fact i work with my best friend

    Worst thing

    sexual harassement from shift runners and male team members, short breaks, rude managers, rude customers, too many hours


    KFC Employee, December 2021

  • Best thing

    Everyone has a nice character, and does work well as a team. Free meals and drinks also are nice. The new manager is more understanding than my previous one.

    Worst thing

    Breaks can be set very early, just after an hour of working. It can also be stressful at times, especially as I didn’t get enough training.
