I left because I did not feel appreciated or valued. Pay rate was awful and it didn't matter how hardworking you were.
Someone told me to drop their nuggets, as I was doing my job (dropping chicken and machines care) and thought it was a hilarious joke (along with two other guys)....that's why. And no we never joked like that, nor did I joke that way with anyone else there. You work with younger people, who don't know the difference between interacting with coworkers and friends. They think (at that location) that a girl being single, friendly is an open invitation to treat her like she's in heat (being friendly does not equal an open invitation).To see the person who said this, talk to two management personnel and ask them to vouch for him after I broke down in tears...was horrible, because they said they would. So I quit without giving a two week notice, because putting in a complaint wouldn't have changed anything, since it wasn't the first time and I wasn't the only one who went through this. The other girls there either just accept this behavior or have a friend, boyfriend or relative there that backs them up.
The mangers and the pay
A lot of work for little pay.
I feel like they do not respect you, they cater more to the customer than the the employee. Now don't get me wrong, that is how is supposed to be. They don't care if you have been standing on your feet for hours, you will only get one 15 minute break no 30s if you do not go above 8 hours and thirty minutes or more. It is rare they schedule you for those hours, so for the most time you work here you will only get 15 min. breaks. I wouldn't risk my health for a job that only wants more money. a monopoly, they not even disney status yet..
Chick-fil-A is one of the fastest growing fast food chains right now. With the company's expansion, there is an increasingly amount of independently stores opening and Chick-fil-a gives independent operators almost complete control with the operations and management of the store. After my 6+ years of working for different locations around the country, it seems as if the "exclusiveness" and brand of Chick-fil-A is diminishing. Most operators now do not provide genuine Chick-fil-A service unless they are being reported through CARES comments to corporate. Basically, a lot of operators are greedy and don't appreciate employees, but if you've found someone great to work for there isn't a better place to be.
The pay is not great
The location I'm at has a toxic work environment and is mismanaged. Some of the managers threaten staff with write-ups, suspension, or termination of employment for simply doing their jobs.
I left as soon as I could. They were a rude establishment.
Low pay, lack of health benefits
