I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Chick-fil-A in March 2013.

Interview Details – I handed in an application and was offered an interview right there, so I said yes. One of the staff interviewed me with basic questions, "how do you like to be managed," "how do you deal with angry people," those kinds of questions. I was called that night and told I'd got through to a second interview. The second interview was very similar to the first, and I was prepared for all the of the questions by looking at what people were asked here on this website. "Who is your hero?" "How would your friends describe you?" Really basic questions. I made it through the 2nd interview and was told to wait where I was so I could get my third interview with the store manager. He came out, was really polite and professional, interviewed me, and then offered me the position.

1) gather the questions people mention on this site and prepare for them. If you do that, you'll be fine.
2) I had three interviews total. That seems to be the norm.

Interview Question – Describe how you work in stressful situations   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Every new hire starts off at minimum wage.

I applied through other source and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Chick-fil-A in April 2011.

Interview Details – Don't be afraid to call back in a few days after dropping off your application to request a follow up. They like to know that you're interested. If selected, they'll call you for an interview, dress nice. Formal attire, but not a suit. Just be relaxed and talk, be engaging. You can't work at a quick-service restaurant and expect not to talk to guests that walk in the through the door. As long as you can carry a conversation, you'll be perfectly fine. Don't forget to smile. :)

Interview Question – Where do you see yourself in five years?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Chick-fil-A will start you off with above minimum, so be happy with that.
