Great training, loving place to work if you want to have the right attitude about learning. You feel needed and wanted at work. It's all in your perspective. They are all about taking care of the community.
Can be a demanding job during busy hours, but overall easy going and easy to adapt to and understand. Great coworkers and management makes it much more enjoyable, especially when it feels like a family, like mine. Would highly recommend.
No employee discounts. Had to pay full price during lunches. Had to buy my own basic black uniform until being employees for 3 months because they don’t want to invest in their employees. No training. I was basically thrown onto every position with maybe 10 minutes of training. Not worth your hard work! It WONT be recognized.
Some days were better then others, usually Chick Fil a tries to switch your position every few hours so your not stuck in the same spot all day long but often times I would find myself stuck bagging or at the register the whole time. It a good job but I think I could be making more of an impact at a different company.
Free lunch, Portions of college would be paid for depending on how long you worked there.
The location I worked at paid $17/hour starting wage, which was really great. The management is about 50/50, some are passive-aggressive powermongers that throw you back to high school in a really bad way, and some are incredibly supportive leaders who genuinely want you to succeed. If you can learn to do your work and keep your head down when that first group is leading a shift, you will flourish under the leadership of the second group. The other team members are all amazing people to work with, but if you work at a register or at the drive-thru window, you will regularly get yelled at by guests for things that are not your fault. If you can handle that, it's a great job.
Of course I had my bad days, but working at Chick-fil-a was such an awesome experience. You must be fast paced and willing to do your very best every single day, but the environment helps you do just that. I became part of a new family when I began working at Chick-fil-a. They specialize in friendliness and satisfaction for both the employee and guests.
Chick-fil-A Federal Way has great customer service. They train their employees thoroughly and encourage excellence. The co-owners are wonderful people. I would recommend this job highly to a high school student looking to make some money and develop professional skills.
It is a great starter job as a high school and college students. It is a very fast-paced environment especially during those rush hours it'll always keep you on your feet. There always something you can do on the job whether that's helping fellow coworkers with stocking their area. When working there I obtained how to work a register and engage with customers. The hardest part of the job in front of the house is probably standing on your feet for a very long time especially if you're not used to that.
They work with your schedule well, that's about it. The pay is absolutely awful and at my chickfila we had some mandatory meetings on sundays. We got paid for it, but one of the few meetings is right before the superbowl, which is ridiculous. Everyone is always putting on a "mask" most of them hate their job. Some of the managers interns took everything extremely literally, everything was either black or white. Because of this, our store went from serving 140 cars per hour in the drive through, to less than 100 within one month. Don't work for this company, the salary is a joke and so is the managment.
It is a busy work schedule especially during lunchtime and dinner. Was only a part-time and worked varied depending if I was needed or not. Great environment within employees and customers. Really great place to work. You have to be willing to work fast paced and always have a smile.
Great managers, great customers, and a satisfying payoff for a job well done. If you want to start working in food service, this would be the place to start. Not only do you learn a lot about customer satisfaction, but you learn a lot about people.
The overall experience I had as an employee at Chick-fil-a was a positive one. I would recommend this job to any one as a first job as they do not pay as much as I would have liked being that I had so much customer service experience.
They were flexible with my hours however, took advantage of the nights that I did work to over work us sometimes. Often I would stay really late at night to clean the back or do dishes, or close the front by myself.
