I worked at Chick-fil-A part-time (more than an year)

Pros

Professional and positive environment, simple tasks, a great first exposure to the real world. They hired sociable people that were fun to work with.

Cons

Slow advancement, standing for 8 hours can be taxing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Show appreciation for your hard workers not just with kudos, but with raises, increased responsibilities, and promotions.

    I worked at Chick-fil-A full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Free lunch everyday. The founder Truett Cathy and his vision and purpose

    Cons

    Employees are treated different as to how close they are connected to the Cathy Family. Employees were expected to turn their head and be quiet when they witnessed IRS and HR laws and regulations being violated. Decided to leave on my own when asked to ignore HR laws and told the senior leadership would decide to implement HR regulations according to the low or high risk value of being caught. Great disparity in salaries.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to align your declared values of integrity and honesty with what really goes on in the day to day operations of your non-profit. Not a fan of Chick-fil-a due what i experienced with your non-profit.

    I have been working at Chick-fil-A full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The health benefits are good, good retirement plan, good 401 match and free lunch.

    Cons

    Low salaries and a very low yearly bonus which is the same low amount for all full time staff. Time off is pretty bad with full time staff working many holidays. Complete lack of trust by management leads to micro-managing. Many employees are very over-worked. The company culture tends to breed laziness since everyone is treated the same salary-wise and no rewards are offered for working hard. Promotions are based on your loyalty to the culture rather than abilities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start to trust employees and offer rewards for those who work hard and perform at higher levels than others. The one-size fits all attitude of management breeds a culture of laziness by rewarding those who work hard you will break that cycle and get a better class of employee. Stop promising things to employees you can't deliver on.
