Best place to work !! I love everything about working here, from the customers, to my fellow team members, our management, our directors and especially the owners. And I love everything this business stands for!
At Chick Fil A I had to learn how become faster to give the food out on time. I would work an eight hour shift. The work place was very diverse.The hard part of the the job was when tourist buses would come in.
When I worked at Chick-fil-A everyday was a new experience, where I learned more. The atmosphere there was always positive and friendly. The people I worked with had a lasting impression on me that I will never forget.
A typical day consisted of a great deal of things. Just to list a few: maintaining the cleanliness of the entire restaurant including the parking lot, maintaining high quality food throughout the day, keeping speed of service extremely fast, dealing with customer complaints and praises, running breaks and shift changes, counting drawers, counting the safe, etc.
I learned a great many things at Chick-Fil-A, however; I would say the greatest thing I learned was how to manage.
The management changed several times while I was there. The original manager, who taught me, was really great at what he did; however, the manager that came after him who I ended up training was ill-prepared for the job and had little understanding of how to operate the restaurant. The owner was a great business man, however; was unfair to some of his employees and seemed hypocritical in some of his beliefs.
My co-workers were nice people, very diverse and came from all walks of life.
The hardest part of my job was the fast paced intensive nature of Chick-Fil-A. There is no break times, no time to breathe. You are constantly doing something which at times is very rewarding but at other times very exhausting.
The most enjoyable part of the job- one night I was closing and a lady pulled up to the drive-thru window. We had already closed but I opened the window to let her know so that she didn't think we were ignoring her. As I opened the window and apologized as I informed her that we had already closed, she sighed and said that her kids had just wanted Chick-Fil-A and that they had driventöbb... a long way to get there. So, I decided to give her what chicken nuggets, fries, two kids ice cream cones for the kids and 3 drinks (one for her and two for her kids) we had left. Then, as I gave her the ice cream she started to cry, informing me that her mother had just passed away which is why she had come out of the way to get her kids chickfila because it had been a hard day. She said that simple act truly meant the world to her. That was the most enjoyable part of my job, knowing that Chick-Fil-A gives back without reward or motive. Yes its a business, but sometimes it can be much more.kevesebb
