It's a great place to work. It is very soothing. The managers give you a great flexible schedule . They are very helful and very understanding. I am able to take a 15 minute break and a 30 minute break separately. I can eat free there and at the cafeteria. I'm not very fond of the high demand from the front and being under pressure of the hot heat working in the back.
It can get pretty fast paced, but if you aren't stupid you can manage fine. Don't burn yourself, because it hurts like the dickens. Everyone is super nice, though, unless they hate you and wish you'd quit.
Chick-fil-a is a very friendly work environment, also keeps you constantly moving, not very much leisure time on or off the job, but they work with their employees, they have great owners and managers as well.
Chick fil-a is easily the best fast food establishment I could have chosen to work for. The staff always had such a great positive attitude. The management would really work hard at building positive relationships with coworkers and customers. The company itself always goes above and beyond to reach out and help the community and be apart of something bigger than a fast food chain. It taught me the value of great customer service in order to not only exceed expectations, but build long lasting and positive relationships with everyone who came through our doors. The work was fast passed, the environment was always cleaned and well kept and there was always a job for someone or everyone to do. The only cons were the lack of raises or promotions, the work hours were either overwhelming or non-existent, and sometimes during a lunch rush, the environment could become not only hectic, but there were multiple times where harsh words were said and hurtful actions would occur.
The company practices an unspoken policy of advancing only young (under 25) people and avoiding hiring older (over 40) worker as much as possible. Workers receive no benefits of any kind and may work over 10 hours without a single break. All work is standing on concrete/tile floors, leading to leg and back problems. Most worker start out at or slightly above minimum wage (regardless of skills and experience) and only young workers earn increases. Many worker over 40 have worked for 5 or more years without a singe increase in pay.
Work is fast paced and hard, lots of heavy lifting. Coworkers pleasant and hard working for the most part.
Most management is too young and inexperienced, immature, poorly trained in employee handling, and advanced beyond their capabilities.
flexible hours, reduced price meals
few or no breaks, high volume/high stress work atmosphere
Chick-Fil-A provided a great work environment for all employees. I leaned how to work with co-workers in order to accomplish a task. Management provided the opportunities for the employees to voice our opinions in order to help with the tasks. Chick-Fil-A challenged me to work with others who had different opinions than myself. Chick-Fil-A was a great place to work.
Management is not the best but the atmosphere is pretty good. Also pay is not exactly great considering the hours. Although the workplace has christian values I feel the co-workers do not believe or take seriously those values.
I've been working there for 2 years & the only reason I have gotten raises is because I threatened to quit. Then the minimum wage was bumped up to $8 and I recently got a raise only because one of our managers quit. On the other hand, the people you work with are fun to be around. There are team outing where all the employees can bond going bowling or having a campfire.
a typical day at work for me started out in the kitchen. I would help my co workers prep for opening and once we were open , i had to make special orders for the customers. We then transitioned for breakfast to lunch, which was a very busy time. once lunch flow started it wasn't hard to get in a grove.
