Store Supervisor/Manager (Current Employee) – McDonough, GA – September 22, 2016
Starting work at Chick-fil-A, I never imagined I'd learn more than food service. Beocming a part of the Leadership Team has taught me about time managemnet, problem resolution, team member development, and so much more.
Building strong relationships with team and customers
As with any job, we sometimes have to deal with unpleasant customers
Team Member (Former Employee) – Plano, TX – September 21, 2016
I would say that working at Chick-fil-A was alright. I learned many skills including how to treat customers. I would have to say that the hardest part about my job was when it got really hectic during rush hour or lunch time. My co-workers were nice and friendly, but management was a little difficult.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Vidalia, GA – September 21, 2016
Employees are definitely trained to give top customer service to the guests going above and beyond their expectations! The food is top quality to be a fast food restaurant! The work environment is positive! I'd recommend this job for all!!
Front of House Employee (Current Employee) – Bolingbrook, IL – September 21, 2016
A typical work day is smooth and positive. Management is fair and they are all about the people who work for their company. Since I've been at Chik-fil-A I've learned how to press on even through my roughest days. I enjoy everything about working at Chik-fil-A.
Team Member (Former Employee) – Kerrville, TX – September 19, 2016
Working at Chick-Fil-A helped me to learn how better to communicate with co-workers and with customers. It also required me to work on my time management because I had to juggle work and my studies simultaneously. The most difficult part of the job is dealing with the customers; they can be very rude and condescending but you must simply overcome it and do your job. That being said, you make a lot of very good friends and you learn a lot about yourself and how you react under pressure. The management is very important to creating a good work environment and while they mess up and handle situations poorly on occasion, they did their job well and were very understanding.
Cashier/Stocker (Current Employee) – Arvada, CO – September 19, 2016
If you prefer people not acknowledge your existence, treat you like you are the lesser human being, or just to have to do what you are told all the time, then this is the place for you. If not, then I highly suggest you don't work here, or any fast food place in general, because this is my life now. You take orders from people who don't want to be there either, managers only want to not lose their jobs, which means that they will have you get everything they should be doing, done for them from lower employees. My co-workers all feel the same way, that if they had any say in how they wanted to work, things would be much different. The hardest part is waking up and having the will to go there. The most enjoyable times are when the rush is very slow and nobody is really doing anything.
Team Leader (Current Employee) – Lynnwood, WA – September 19, 2016
As a leader, a typical day at work includes running the shifts. This includes, making sure breaks are being run efficiently, ensuring that your team members stay engaged, making sure that guests are receiving the absolute best customer service. I definitely learned a lot about leadership. As a leader however, almost all of the responsibility of the entire store falls on you, which is a lot for one or two people to handle due to the high volume of business. The most enjoybale part is definitely having those few coworkers that make your job fun.
Hospitality and Customer Service (Current Employee) – Chesterfield, VA – September 18, 2016
We work like a family. Our management respects ALL employees and customers. The most enjoyable part of my job is serving my customers. The hardest part of my job is standing on my feet all day. The owner/operator had become a mentor for me and is showing by his actions and words how to become an effective leader.
Free food on breaks, good commradery, excellent management
