I worked at Chick-fil-A part-time (More than a 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 Management

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 3 years)

    Pros

    Great values, great customer service, high standards, and they strive to be the best.

    Cons

    Some of the operators (owners of the store) aren't there for what corporate thinks they are there for. A lot of them can be very two faced! I was a manager and ended up quitting because all it was was drama, drama, drama. Not paid enough for all that.

    Advice to Management

    If an operator has his wife involved with the store... run while you can.

    I worked at Chick-fil-A full-time (More than a 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 Management

    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.
