    I have been working at Chick-fil-A part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    free gym, free lunch for all employees.
    Full time perks only - child care, participation in the yearly company convention. Great vacation & medical benefits.

    Cons

    NO career growth. Don't expect to move up ever. I was told "DO NOT mention you want "career growth" in your interview" by an insider. She was right & everyone there will secretly tell you the same thing. You stay in one spot for life. :(

    Part time - expected to do full time work (60 hours worth) in part time hours (32). Not treated as equal to full time staff. No child care. Not invited to yearly company convention. Can buy into medical but not paid for like full time staff. Vacation is average.

    VERY religious company. Monday morning worship. It is "optional" so they say, but everyone attends, and it noticed if you are not there. This was not an issue for me, since I am religious.

    Insiders complain of the company trying to hold on to the "small, family company" feel, but not dealing with the fact that it is now a large company.

    Talent is over the top with their question of "tell me your life story since you were born" and they investigate every aspect of your life and dive deep into your past. I have never drank, smoke, etc... but my references were asked had I ever done those things. Was I a party person in college? If you are not squeaky clean, you won't get in.

    You are expected to tell them about your personal life, even if you don't want to. They pressure you into talking about it.

    Holidays - you do NOT get the day after Thanksgiving off.

    Other - you are expected to work the Bowl game in January and you also have to work at a Chick-fil-A restaurant for one week during the year.

    Pros

    The customers are pretty friendly as well as the staff. The company, itself, is reputable and gives its employees a decent work environment.

    Cons

    The rude customers and the fact that is fast good. Also, each company is headed by an individual owner and GM.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop screwing your employees over. They are all quitting for a reason.
