The Chick-Fil-A I worked at was great as far as friendship, companionship, teamwork, and management but, I have one very large and overhanging gripe and that is promotions. It is fairly common for someone who has been absolutely busting their back to get a promotion to move up, however, it is almost more common for someone with just management experience to show up and take that position. This was a gripe among all of my coworkers as it made it nearly impossible to move up.
Another huge issue I have is that there is a clear hierarchy of Leader, Coordinator, Manager. However, as of recent, they have removed the Coordinator position. This not only makes it even harder for Team Leaders to move up, but it gives Team Leaders more responsibility with less pay.
However, now the Pros. Management is fantastic. The team strength is tremendous and the atmosphere was always full of energy and positivity.
