4 Perks of Working at Chick-fil-A
It’s no wonder Chick-fil-A Team Members are always smiling! Working at a Chick-fil-A restaurant may include a few things one would expect – preparing food, taking orders and serving guests. However, Chick-fil-A Team Members tell us that it’s the unexpected experiences that makes the real difference. In their own words, here are four perks of working at a Chick-fil-A restaurant: 1. The opportunity to earn scholarships “I applied to Chick-fil-A because it’s not just a business here – it’s about serving people and making people happy,” says Saskya Simon, who was awarded a $25,000 True Inspiration Scholarship from Chick-fil-A, Inc. “This scholarship is allowing me to live out my dream of attending medical school, and I’m so appreciative of that.” Simon, who works at the Pompano Beach Chick-fil-A, was one of 5,700 Team Members to earn a scholarship in 2018. In fact, the company awarded $14.65 million in scholarships that same year nationwide. How do Team Members earn one? It’s not just good grades – it’s their community service and hard work that pay off, too! 2. Great people, great friendships Hard work is fun when the right team is by your side. Restaurant Team Members enjoy making incredible memories and lasting relationships with their coworkers. Jordan Manganello, a Team Member at Chick-fil-A Lebanon, put it best when she said, “I’ve established personal connections with my fellow Team Members that never would have been possible, if not for working at this Chick-fil-A.” 3. Scheduling flexibility The friendly, warm atmosphere that guests experience at Chick-fil-A extends behind the scenes, too. Chick-fil-A franchisees (“Operators”) know that people are busy, schedules can be complicated, and life happens - that’s why they strive to offer flexibility when it comes to scheduling Team Members’ shifts. Heather Rosenberg is a mom, a nursery-school owner and a dining room hostess at Chick-fil-A Hicksville. “The flexible scheduling allows me to teach during the day and bring smiles to our guests in the evening,” says Rosenberg. 4. Far from the average restaurant job Team Members at Chick-fil-A restaurants often have the opportunity to advance their skills in important areas like customer relations and team management. And many restaurants offer positions like social media and marketing director, which make for impressive resume-boosters.
Our aim is to serve guests and communities well, and we know that starts with people. Creating a positive and productive place to work is important to both Chick-fil-A, Inc. and Chick-fil-A Franchisees.
Everyone's job at Chick-fil-A is to serve. No matter our title or job description, our reason for coming to work is to generously share our time and talents. Whether it's treating customers like friends, or serving our communities like neighbors, we believe kindness is a higher calling. Helping fight hunger For millions of people, a nourishing meal is a critical need. That’s why we created the Chick-fil-A Shared Table program, an initiative to help restaurant Operators fight hunger in their local communities and reduce food waste at the same time. Today, more than 1,100 Chick-fil-A restaurants donate surplus food to local soup kitchens, shelters and nonprofits through Chick-fil-A Shared Table, and that number continues to grow each year.
