    Reasons for Declining

    Applied for a Manager in Training position.( have Management experience already was willing to accept a little lower position). He offered me a cashier position b/c he didn't know me, my resume & experience did not matter to him. They offer insurance, but do not pay for any of it. The pay at the Company is really low. I can't believe he had my resume for 3- 6 months B 4 he called 4 an interview to offer me a low pay job that wouldn't even pay for insurance & or gas in my car. It made no sense to set up the interview. I thought it was a Christian Company... maybe I should guess again. Bait and switch is of The Devil not The True God that we, yes, we Christians believe in. SO Disappointed in this experience.

    IT Position Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Chick-fil-A.

    Interview Details

    I filled out the online application and submitted a copy of my resume. Within 48 hours, I received an email asking me to fill out a staff application. Most of the application was just a re-hash of my resume except for the five essay questions. Pretty basic stuff: why do you want to work here, what are you doing to improve yourself professionally, where do you see yourself in five years, etc.

    I was emailed a few days later and asked to take part in a phone interview. The interviewer was an HR recruiter. The interviewer was very put off that I didn't know any current employees at the corporate office. I almost felt like I was being accused of lying about the former employees that I listed since they didn't show up in the corporate directory; the application explicitly said "current or former" employees. She ran through my application and resume with me and it became apparent through the process that the job listing on the web site didn't adequately describe the actual job. The job listing only covered a very small portion of the responsibilities.

    After the phone interview was over, I was told that there would be at least two (possibly three) in person interviews. Between the first two in person interviews, I would have to submit three personal and three professional references. I was also told to expect a phone call in the next week which never came. All I got was the "we're not interested" email a week+ after the phone interview.

    Training Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 7+ monthsinterviewed at Chick-fil-A.

    Interview Details

    The process is a marathon. (Not a sprint.) The application process takes you all the way back to junior high and high school data. The on-site interviews were back-to-back all in one day. (Eight or nine to be exact.) There is a black-hole of communication that occurs between interviews. I didn't hear anything for four months and was then called back for another round of on-site interviews. (Two days back-to-back.) I asked about the culture in every single interview and what I heard was a far cry from what I actually experienced.

    Interview Details

    This was back in 2000 when there were paper applications at the stores. I went to one of the stores in Knoxville, TN and picked one up, filled it out there in the store, handed it to the manager who read though it right there and asked if I was available on the spot for an interview. I said I was so we went and sat down in the office in back and he asked me about my availability excluding Saturdays and why. I told him that its the day my family and I attend church.

    • "We're a Christian owned and operated store so if you're not willing to work Saturdays because you choose to go to church that day instead of Sunday like everyone else does then we have no place for you here at Chick-fil-A."   View Answer
