I am a testimony to the how you are allowed to grow and advance within Chick-fil-A. And how everyone is there to support you through that journey. I started part-time at age 15 and my leaders allowed me a flexible schedule so I could continue my school sports and activities. Now I’m a director and offer that flexibility and encouragement to the younger team members. It’s like a family here. We work as a team to make sure everyone is at their best – and have fun!

It’s like working with a big family. I love it! I used to come to Chick-fil-A as a child with my family and when I was about 11 I got to tour the kitchen area and knew right then that I wanted this to be my first job. It just feels like home.

I’m a naturally shy person but I have developed a lot of confidence in this job. Two friends recommended the job to me in 2011 and since then I’ve been promoted at a leadership position. My managers provided the training and support I need to be able to handle the daily challenges that a leader faces – from coaching the team members to serving the guests. I enjoy my job because of the team we have. We all show up with our best smiles, attitude and make it a good day – a fun day.

It’s actually fun to come to work. We’re doing our jobs but also having fun. Where else can you do that? It’s never boring! I’ve been promoted to a leader position and it’s made me so decisive and confident. That’s also helped me in my personal life – helping me make decisions about my future career. The skills I have learned here will transfer to my future career (surgical technology). It’s very fast paced here so that will be very helpful in learning my new career field.

I think I came for breakfast every morning for a year and the manager said that I should just work at Chick-fil-A since I’m always here anyway. I love the fact that it I am working and serving others but it feels like I am spending time with friends. This job has helped me develop better communication and problem solving skills. I feel comfortable starting conversations with guests and new team members. With the training I’ve received as a new leader, I notice when things not right and know how to correct them. I hope to become a police officer, then a detective, and feel the skills I’ve developed will transfer well to that career.
