    i went to an interview at KFC the other day. they said that they'll call me in next week to do a test to see if id be right for the job.
    anyone else taken this test?

    I doubt I'd be hard considering the intellegence of a girl who served me in KFC the other day. If she can get in, potentially anyone can! She first of all put the wrong thing in the till, then got confused why a fillet burger and a twister thingy or whatever it was were classed in the same thing, even though there was a massive big poster behind her advertising the two at the same meal price. Then she was getting the change out, counting it out, she shut the till, then realised she'd got the wrong change out for me. She then asked for till keys to open the till, and when it was open, she turned to me and said, "I havent given you the rest of your change yet, have I?" then she turned to the girl that had just opened the till for her and goes "Should I give it to her now, while the till's open?"

    A test for KFC.....you're joking right?!

    what did you do at the test?

    These "tests" are not to see if they should employ you, they are to cover themselves in case anything goes wrong. For example, a question might be:

    Q. There is a spillage on the shop floor, should you:
    1. Leave it
    2. Tell your manager about it
    3. Go and get a mop and clean it up
    4. Get another member of staff to stand by the spillage to ensure that customers are aware of it and do not slip or step in it whilst you go to get a mop to clean it up. After using the mop, put down a Wet Floor sign.

    YES IT'S BLOODY EASY!!! But it means that say, if someone slips on a spillage when you were on "shop floor duty" or something, and you try to act ignorant and go "It's not my fault, I didn't know what to do!", well they can pull the test out and go "Well, according to this, you do!!" - and hence put the blame on you. OK you won't get fined, the company will, but they have every right to sack you!

    So yeah, tests are stupid, Tescos do them, as do a lot of other places where you wouldn't expect them - particularly in the service sector (shops, supermarkets, restaurants and all that)....but it's just to cover the companies' backs

    Q. How much chicken is in a standard KFC meal?

    A. None.

    What else do you need to know?
