Lafayette, LA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Chick-fil-A in September 2010.

Interview Details – Hiring is simple. They are old fashioned when it comes to applications. Hand in your application and a call will come. It helps usually to have a reference from someone who has worked there previously. Only one interview occurs during the process.

Interview Question – The most difficult question is probably if you have a reliable means of transportation.   Answer Question

Kitchen Team Member Interview

Kitchen Team Member
Cincinnati, OH

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Chick-fil-A in September 2013.

Interview Details – The interview was pretty basic. They ask about you and your hobbies, skills, etc and past work experience. I was asked how I handle stress and fast work environment. Same questions from 2-3 managers is the standard. Easy and to the point. The work isn't hard so they're just feeling you out.

Interview Question – Nothing difficult was asked. Just don't overthink things and try to give forced answers you think they want to hear. They're not stupid and just want to know 'you'.   Answer Question

Training Director Interview

Training Director
Fairfax, VA

I applied online - interviewed at Chick-fil-A in September 2013.

Interview Details – At the time I was interviewing, this particular Chick-fil-A was conducting multiple rounds of interviews for leadership positions. The first interview was primarily behavioral type of questions. They asked for my responses to follow the CAR method (C: Challenge/circumstance, A: Action, R: Result). The second round focused more on my previous experiences and asked for specific cases or examples of how I handled situations. They also set up scenarios in which I had to audibly think through how I would respond in those situations. I had to provide the decision I made, the action I took, and the result.

Interview Question – I did not expect having to respond to the scenarios or situations. Perhaps most surprising was when they asked me to give an example of a time when a guest was upset, I tried to resolve the problem, and they still left unsatisfied.   View Answer

Reason for Declining – The position sounded great and was very enticing, however I had other counter offers and selected a different position.
