I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Chick-fil-A.

Interview Details – I interviewed before the store was built so the application process was a little different than it normally would be. There are at least two interviews that everyone must go through; a group interview and a individual interview. During the group interview, you will be asked to do group interactions to see if you are comfortable talking to new people. If you can excel at this then you will more than likely be asked for an individual interview.

Interview Question – What will you do to help make this company better than any other quick service restaurant?   Answer Question

Manager Interview

Manager
Fairfax, VA

I interviewed at Chick-fil-A in May 2012.

Interview Details – First phone call to get basic information. Second phone call is a phone interview to gain a little more insight into your career goals, etc. Face-to-face interview with the marketing coordinator (about 15 minutes not difficult). Face-to-face interview with general manager (about an hour) fairly difficult with many questions about your aspirations, view on certain things etc

Interview Question – Chick-fil-A's owner strongly believes in the "never-open-on-Sunday-policy". Why do you think he holds to this policy?   View Answer

Reason for Declining – A better job presented itself

Manager Interview

Manager
Fredericksburg, VA

I applied through other source and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Chick-fil-A in June 2010.

Interview Details – They had open interviews and I just so happened to be passing through... I was 17 at the time. The operator asked me back for a second interview which apparently was a big deal. I came back for the second, he asked me back for a third interview... Then he finally offered me the job as a cashier making $7.75/hr. Which is fine when you're 17 and it's your first job.

Interview Question – There weren't any difficult questions... I don't think any preparation for the interview is necessary. You do have to sell yourself though... Probably make yourself sound a little more happy and religious than you really are. They like that stuff.

Manager Interview

Manager
Richmond, CA

I applied in-person and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Chick-fil-A in June 2009.

Interview Details – I was very impressed with the care and interest displayed during the interview process. My first interview was with the store operator and lasted for several hours. Several weeks later I met with two managers and then shortly after spent five hours in the kitchen. After this experience I had another interview with the store operator. I spent close to 10 hours total. Chick-fil-A is not interested in simply finding a warm body to fill a position. They seem to genuinely care that the right person is in each position. The operator was especially gracious, even offering the opportunity for me and my wife to have dinner with his family.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time when you had to lead in a very fast-paced environment.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I have a great amount of respect for the company and will likely be a Chick-fil-A customer for life, thus I declined because of personal reasons. The very fast-paced environment, repetitive nature of the work, and general aversion I have towards fast food all contributed to my decision to withdraw my candidacy for the job.

Manager

I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Chick-fil-A.

Interview Details – The process is that applications are put in by paper. Then potential employees are called in for a group interview and given a backstage tour and Be Our Guest card. The group interview is with at least two senior managers. During the group interview we have a couple of group activites that showcase personalites and how people interact with each other. If chosen, you will be called back for a one-on-one interview with the owner/operator and he makes the final decision.

Interview Question – Sell us a sauce.   Answer Question
