underpaid in kuching, sarawak, Malaysia

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
goverment set the basic salary is rm1200, but for partimer only get rm700/rm800, this is because they work less than 8 hours perday and two three off days, no problem for fulltimer but the workload increse, just because they receive monthly income in basic salary start from rm1200. The management cant solve inner problem and put the blame on the staff.

Pros

Annual leave, bonus for fulltimers, flexible offday request, free meals

Cons

utilities example sponge for closing when doing cleaningness is not provided, only can redeem back cash after showing receipt to buy the utilities

a fast paced company

lack of staff which make us do double work which didn't match with the salary but still a great lesson of life for me , it is okay for me to do an overtime but with a double work as a person and lack of rest time is a bit unfair .

Pros

free lunch & hostel

Cons

short break & lack of staff in department

Productive and fun place to work

Good working condition although lack of rest for the worker as it based on shift. The worker need to clean all the operation during the closure that at least that 1 hour after closure that affect the productivity of the worker if they work for the morning shift the day after as they lack of rest. As for the pro, the company provide free lunches. Although it quite tired and hard to balance between life and job work, it still good working experience.

Pros

free lunches

Cons

Less rest

Always need to reschedule my time.

The working time is keep changing every week and the worst is if it suddenly change by the manager to replace the place for the absent one. Closing time is too long.

Pros

Happy environment.

Cons

Hard to get a prayer time.

Positive atmosphere with great co-workers

KFC is a great workplace with motivated work colleagues. Daily routines include obeying SOPs for cooking of raw material and cleaning the kitchen. Management team has been supportive and flexible with the workers. Work colleagues were really fun and hardworking, they know how to differentiate between keeping the work done and have fun. There was time usually on public holidays where customers and overwhelming and outnumbered. This caused raw material to be insufficient and productivity of a worker increase to 200%. After closing the store, the most awaited time for the workers to have little chat with each other and relax for a moment before going home to get some sleep.

Pros

Free mouth watering lunches

Cons

Lack of rest time
