Was just not the environment for me. I believe I tried to turn a highschool job into a longer lasting job which I should not have done. I lost interest as I knew I did not want to be a kitchen worker for Yessss to come
Management is not organized. There are a couple of good leaders there, the rest are people who hold a tittle and do what their told. There’s no compassion, empathy, motivation, or room for growth if you’re at the bottom level. You just help numbers run. You can get a promotion, however it’s not based on your work ethic and commitment. It’s based off a piece of paper you can cheat your way through to give you a promotion. Even then, the whole process can take months to finish.
The second you are hired, they welcome you apart of the team as if it were like being welcomed into a new home, a new family. Although it is fast pace, everyone is there to help you. They even make the time to relieve the stress after all those hours of fast pace. Always considering each individual there.
My specific location is a franchise, and the management is the most dangerous thing I have ever experienced in the food industry. Management has established a culture in which sick employees are afraid to call out and would rather come to work while carrying infectious diseases.
People are punished by having their hours cut whenever they call out (or go home) sick for weeks after the fact.
Managers publicly (and loudly) insult employees who call out sick.
My wife called the restaurant when our child was having an asthma attack at daycare. Rather than let my wife speak to me, management promised to take a message. I never got that message.

I literally have never wanted to run from a job faster. Management was very fake friendly, they docked our hours to fix the AC unit (it took two weeks and we literally had people on the verge of passing out and when brought up with management they’d tell us to stop complaining) and the shift lead would abuse his power and threaten to “document” you for everything. You work long shifts and they question your health if you take more than one bathroom break
Working at chick fil a was a good experience, but me personally I wouldn’t ever want to go back and work for them, not because they’re a bad company but because it’s not a job your exited to go to on a daily basis.
Very low pay, awful place to work, they only care about how fast the food comes outs and not the quality. Owner is a cheap idiot who has an extreme control complex. Mostly relies on immigrants for cheaper labor. Doesn’t spend money on new equipment when needed.

Really excellent company to work for. No other company rivals their quality or standards and in my experience this is one of, if not the best fast food companies you can work for . Since every store has a different operator, it can make each store unique. In my case, my direct manager was too busy trying to sleep with underage girls to actually run our kitchen, and our operator didn't care.
Chick Fil a was a company I literally grew up working for. They gave me time when my life and health were on the line. The amount of support that I received from my Owner/Operator was above and beyond. However after time I realized it was time to move on and advance my career elsewhere. Chick Fil A is a great place to learn and grow as an employee.
Everyday i would be assigned a different task/station. That helped me adjust and learn different kinds of things. My manager was really helpful in teaching me everything and trusted me with completing my tasks without problem.
FOH does not understand kitchen and its procedures, and they expect to get everything when they ask for it. I must get orders out before four minutes or else FOH directors come in the back and start telling the shift leads how to run the shift and walk away and do not help. The kitchen is short staffed and people are not actually being scheduled to train. The promotions seems to be favoritism and others have to work their tails off.
The main problem I had at here was that I was also going to school for half the day but they didn’t understand I could worker around 1pm and they usually didn’t schedule me until 5 or 6 which is still late even if I was in school full time.
