You can either apply online on their career Chick Fil A website, indeed.com, or walk in. I thought it would be easier to walk in and apply so I had done that instead of the others that were requested. The next few days the hiring manager called me to request what day should my interview time would be held. The same hiring manager that had called me on the phone interviewed me the next following day asking me to tell me a little bit about myself, why should I be hired, if I could handle stress at a work place, or how will I handle a stressful situation from employee or customer. After answering the interview questions, the hiring manager said “Expect a call from me before or after Friday.” Later on that day, I got a call again and was told that I was hired. The next step, I was told to come in and fill out the forms- w2s, taxes information, availability, going over availability and Chick Fil A information packet. Depending on what state you’re from they will expect you to take a one on one course with a class that’s $15 with test included or an online class that’s $10 w/ no test included either or you will be able to print out your certificate through fax/email for your food handling card. The hiring manager or other managers will email you with the given email you had filled out on your forms the schedule every Sunday.

I applied very recently online and when I did not hear back in 5 business days, I thought my chances of attaining a job there were slim, but I thought I'd go into a nearby location and ask about what the next steps might be if I had just applied online. I'm glad I did! An assistant manager let me know that the first step is applying online, then there'd be "open interviews". She handed me a card with the times that the 'open interviews' were going to happen (three times a week). I'm guessing that these 'open interviews' will be happening three times a week for the foreseeable future, since they're hiring for a new location opening up soon in town.

Anyway, my advice is don't just sit around and wait on them to call you. Even if it had been days without any word, or even online confirmation that your application had been received. Call THEM or VISIT a nearby location to ask about what the process will or should look like, so you know what to expect. I went to one of the 'open interviews' that I could make it to (closest to when I applied online, and the soonest I could make it with my current job), and we should hear back in 3-5 business days about coming in for a second interview.

The hiring process is as simple as getting an application and turning it in. It also would help to call the office directly (though I would recommend not calling early in the morning or between 11:30 and 1:30 since those are the busiest hours of the day).

They generally pay around 7:50$ for cashier only, and we get paid every other week so you should be able to figure it out once you begin work and ask around
