Cook (Former Employee) – Temple, TX – June 23, 2019
The typical day started when we make 24 Chicken Filets and have them ready fro the rush of the day. The majority of the day was all rush and with this type of days I learned to deal in high stress environments.
i would have to say that the overall experience at chik fil a was not at all what it is advertised to be. The management makes it seem like they are one thing but after the job is received they act completely different. I already knew it would be hard work so I didn’t care about the labor. I just don’t appreciate being lied to, just tell me what it will be like and be honest.

I loved working here as the people were so kind and helpful. They were very supportive and worked with me to get my Food Handler's Permit as well as my uniform. Training was thorough and work environment was one of the bests. To be honest, the hardest part of the job was how loud and BUSY it could get--it got crazy sometimes

Great work environment with extremely professional co-workers. Store management along side kitchen and front store managers made the workplace seem friendly and an amazing as well as very oriented to make sure all duties and tasks were fulfilled according to official guidelines.
My experience at CFA was fully hypocritical actions by the managers. Friends and family members were hired and favored over other employees. Many of the favorited workers would not work and would sit around on their phones.

You slave in a kitchen all shift and get covered in oil and grease. You burn your hand on the hot fryer oil and on the chicken fresh out of the fryer and grill. As a breader I was covered in raw chicken and chicken juice daily at the beginning of my shift and would have it caked to the bottom of my shoes. I had to beg for a raise even after working hard for over a year. Dishes are done by hand by the cooks.

I would come in heat up the fryers and prepare the chicken to be cooked. After I cook the chicken I pass it to the other side to be ready to be served. I learned that teamwork makes the dream work. The managers was very fair and polite and helped to get the job done. The hardest part of the job was making sure the chicken was cooked right and prepared quickly for the customers. The most enjoyable part of the job was to hear the customers compliment your cooking.
