Kentucky Fried Chicken Complaint - Complaint about my employer - KFC
LA PLATA, MARYLAND -- I am an employee at a KFC in Maryland. I have been employed by this KFC for 2 years now. We recently lost 3 of our managers due to unfair treatment not only because of pay, but also because of the rudeness and inability of effective communication from higher authorities within the company. As a result 3 new managers were brought in. 1 of which was a transfer from a nearby KFC. Ever since this change occurred our store has steadily gone down hill. The treatment of the employees has deteriorated as well. Breaks are no longer given to those who work 9+ consecutive hours a day, promotions are being made to people who have no experience. Mangers come to me and ask me what to do, does this sound like an effective manager to you? They obviously don't have clue to how a fast-food restaurant should be ran. We have tried speaking to the managers about the problems, they then proceed to tell us that if we don't like it then we can leave.
To me this seems to be extremely unfair because out of all of the other employees I have been there longest. Others have quit and not returned. It's kind of funny to me because once they realize they need these employees they then harass them by calling them and asking them to come back.
This treatment has gone far enough and hard-working employees are becoming unemployed because of this situation.
