    Pros

    Dealt with a community of predominately religious customers that were very nice, free food after every shift, various free products including first taste of new milkshake flavors. Tipping is allowed and encouraged.

    Cons

    Minimum wage, Promotions mean little pay increase, "writing up" is used constantly as a threat and makes for a strange relationship with team leaders.

    Advice to Management

    Everything works efficiently but more focus should be put on team building. Also, hiring employees that are 14 or 15 years old should be kept to a minimum.

    Pros

    Having off on Sundays, unless of course they schedule you for meetings to come into that horrible mall.

    Cons

    Horrible and immature management. Nothing but extreme favoritism. They lie and promise you one thing,then use and abuse you once your there. They took away the free meals for employees which made it somewhat bearable to work there. They will stick you behind a register forever with no room for growth or improvement. This place has a high school mentality when it comes to how they treat their employees. Not only that but the customers at that mall are just plain horrible. You'll come home venting and crying every day at how miserable you'll be there.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with respect and avoid the obvious favoritism

    Pros

    The people you work with are definitely the best. Because of the Chick-fil-A standards the people are the highest quality and make the job really enjoyable.

    Cons

    Being in a quick service restaurant can be stressful and there are limitations to how much you can move up.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees. When you have a good one, offer raises in order to keep them instead of always waiting to be asked.
