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 for a part time front of house position starting at $11/hour. At my third interview I was hired for a full time position starting out at $9/hour. Dishonest from the very beginning and no regard for your time and resources even if you're a very hard worker. So it took 2 weeks from applied to hired and lied to. Management does not care how many they have to hire and fire.

Okay, this is exactly how my process went/is going... First you apply, a couple days later they call you on the phone and do a short phone interview.. asking questions such as when would be available things like that... after that they invite you to the next phase , which for me was a group interview... after the group interview they IF you passed that you are invited to the next step which consists of you going to the store and shadowing the employees so they can see how well you work... if you complete that task they will invite you to the final phase which is a more personal one on one interview.. they than will email you telling you if you were hired, once hired you get a uniform do some paperwork and orientation.. I’m in the orientation phase so I’m not sure if I go straight into working after or if they will be training yet...

It depends on which Chick-fil-A you'll be working at and how you filled out your application. I did mine on indeed and it took them about 3 days to call me. Over the phone they asked me several questions about availability and if I could come in for an interview in the next 3 days. When I finally went I was interviewed by 2 assistant managers and they liked me very much. They told me that all that was left to do was call my references and have my second interview with the manager. I had my second interview the very next day and at the end of it he told me I was hired and would start work a week from that day. They ask for your clothes and shoes size and they told me to fill out the packet they would email me with all of the information they needed such as bank account for direct deposit and such.

Depends on age. If a work permit is needed, process can take up to a month. However if you're available as an independent adult, training can begin as soon as next day.

It took me 4 days, and included the initial "open interview" with the Assistant Manager on Tuesday, followed by an interview 2 days later with the Operator. They called me the next afternoon (Friday) and told me I had the job.

About a week, and all you have to do is interview and fill out paperwork. They have no training or orientation, so you start right away.
