Team Leader (Current Employee) – Sterling, VA – September 30, 2017
The environment is fast paced and can be filled with fun, but there is high turnover from people quitting. I did learn a lot about how to be a leader of a team and how to deal with issues that are brought to my attention by team members and customers.

Got there when it first got around. Business was a little crazy and it took atleast2 hrs to vlean up after the store was already closed. That was the worst part and by that time public transportation isnt running.

While there are some benefits to this job, there are many other drawbacks. The customers were mostly rude and the work flow was overly fast.There was not a moment of rest when the busy period set in and we often didn't have enough people staffed during the off season. When there were summers, we were overly busy and it made it difficult to work or even have an acceptable break. The pay itself was splendid, which constitutes to the employee longevity. However, you will work with mostly younger, high school aged people.
Free lunch and discounts for food when you're not on shift.

I’ve worked at chick fil a for almost a year and I’ve decided to quit. The managers are qluicky and full of drama. You aren’t allowed to have a conversation with another team member without being told to stop talking, while shift leaders talk about nonsense. It’s like jail and the scheduling sucks at my particular location. Standing for 4+ hours is hard on your back and it’s a tedious job that gets boring. We only got a $3.50 discount which can’t even buy a sandwich. I was away for 10 days and requested off, when my manager scheduled me when I was out of state,I had no phone and didn’t know until the week after. I received my first write up which they made my final write up for not communicating. Employees there act too nice to be true. It’s all a façade, most of my peers I worked with also don’t like it. But it’s hard to leave somewhere when you get paid $13 an hour.
Very encouraging management staff, and great work experience

Working at Chick-fil-A was an amazing experience for me. It helped train me to become a leader, to work as part of a team, to help others out, and to go above and beyond expectations. The work ethics that they teach their employees is excellent
Free lunches, decent breaks
somewhat low pay, raises don't come often or easily
Team Leader (Former Employee) – Stafford, VA – February 6, 2018
Chick Fil A was my first official real job and gave me customer service skills that can be used for the rest of my life. Working there also taught me about discipline, teamwork, and strengthened my multitasking skills. I loved the fast pace of it, making the time go by faster and always being active! There was never a dull moment even on a typical "slow day". Even though there were different levels of advancement, working as a team is what got us through the long hectic days. I have created lifelong bonds with some of the people I worked with there and will forever be grateful for that!
Team Leader/Supervisor (Current Employee) – Raleigh, NC – February 5, 2018
This job has truly changed my life. I have loved working there. The managers are extremely hard working and friendly just as you would expect. They are willing to work with you if something comes up in your personal life. Its a very high paced job and you need to be good at multitasking and managing your time. They offer scholarships and a paid week vacation every year for employees that qualify. Its just an overall amazing place to work. You truly become part of the family once you are hired.
Discounts, Paid Vacation, and Scholarship opportunities
Team Lead (Current Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – February 2, 2018
I've been with the company a very long time, for the most part Chick-fil-A has treated me very well during my employment. Some work days are long, you have to be prepared for a slow day to turn into a very fast paced day very quickly. Some managers were lax some took too much time to micromanage and other things could have gotten done in the day.

...however, if you are out of high school, the store operators (owners), who are responsible for scheduling, are harsh and inflexible when it comes to requesting time off. They are not understanding whatsoever of little things in life that happen which might cause one to miss work, such as illness (not even a doctor's note is appeasing enough), family emergencies, etc, and often give guilt trips when a staff member has to request a block of time off or misses a day of work.
Coworkers are generally fun
short breaks, rude store owners, time-consuming, stressful atmosphere
Team leader (Current Employee) – Hicksville, NY – January 27, 2018
Working their helps to show that people will take advantage of your kindness. however it help build people skills and make quick decisions. When it gets busy it can be difficult if things start to go wrong.
