We’re more than a restaurant. Our passion is to nourish people and bring joy to their lives. We do that many ways—the work we do may surprise you.

We’re tackling complex challenges every day. Creating new menu items that delight with healthy, simple ingredients. Constructing new approaches to store layout and design. Building new ways to bring our service to life in digital and mobile. We’re working on challenges in food and hospitality that can’t be solved overnight. Want to join us? We’re looking for curious, tenacious thinkers who bring diverse perspectives and are passionate about working on challenges just beyond our grasp. We’re in need of good people who can rise to meet the challenge in front of them. 

Restaurant Employment


Most Chick-fil-A Restaurant businesses are owned and operated by entrepreneurial, franchised Operators who seek to be in business for themselves, not by themselves. They recruit, hire, train and manage their own employees, handle all matters regarding team member employment at their restaurants, and set their own employment policies and procedures.

Experience Hospitality at Work

We’re grounded in a higher purpose and that’s woven into all we do.

Everyone's job at Chick-fil-A is to serve. No matter our title or job description, our reason for coming to work is to generously share our time and talents. Whether it's treating customers like friends, or serving our communities like neighbors, we believe kindness is a higher calling.

Continuing its founder’s legacy of generosity and service, in 2017 the company’s philanthropic Chick-fil-A Foundation awarded $1.23 million to 23 not-for-profit organizations across 13 states through the True Inspiration Awards and almost $9 million in scholarships to restaurant team members nationwide.  

Chick-fil-A is privately owned by a family that’s passionate about creating a world where people find joy in making someone else’s day. We don’t have to hit an earnings number for Wall Street, which means we’re free to be deliberate about caring for our people and trying new things.

Chick-fil-A is a place where you can thrive. We care for our people, from our generous benefits package, to our corporate café, fitness center and beautiful campus—we do our best to make sure you’re cared for. We think these reasons and more are why in 2017, Chick-fil-A earned the Chicken Restaurant Brand of the Year honors for the fourth consecutive year in the 2017 Harris Poll EquiTrend Study.

We aim to make sure you’ve got everything you need to be at your best and we work hard to build a place where that’s possible. Our people are as interested in supporting one another as they are about their own career growth.
It's true servant-leadership at work.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Chick-fil-A (Atlanta, GA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    1) Sent in resume
    2) Heard back, asked to write essays
    3) Over the web recorded interview
    4) Interview at HQ in Atlanta
    Chick-fil-a was very quick on turnarounds, responding on each step within several days. Very transparent about where in the process I stood. Interview at HQ lasted a little over 2 hours, 3 different interviewers (one HR, two from IT).
