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.

I applied online through Snag A Job. The operator contacted me to schedule an interview and filled out the application due to it being a 1-click apply on snagajob. The team leader asked basic questions and I was immediately hired on the spot.

In Georgia it's different! I saw on Facebook they were having open interviews. I printed the application from online and included a summary (basic resume) of myself with a picture and attached it to my app. The day of 1st interview it was with the stores catering mgr. The 2nd was with the stores assistant mgr. The 3rd was with the area operator. I was called that evening (5 hrs later) and told I was hired. Each interview lasted under 10 mins. When I got the hiring call they asked for my sizes and if I could come in that Friday for paperwork. Have to have ID, or birth certificate (if no license), ss card and bank account with routing #. The entire interview process took 2 weeks. I will start working next week wed-sat (today is Friday). You also have to have sleeves (you have to buy from them) If you have arm visible tattoos.
