A Visit to Chick-Fil-A
All this hullaballo has had me thinking about my time working at Chick-Fil-A. You know, it was a very positive experience. My hiring manager and first boss was from India. I worked with Christians, non-Christians, Catholics and some who did not even believe in God. I worked with white people, Hispanics, black people and even at least one gay person! Chick-Fil-A was full of diversity and respect. And I believe they still are.
Why did we do this? To support a great company! Did you know, I never once saw a person treated disrespectfully when I worked there. Even when things were busy or breaking, I was never once yelled at or spoken rudely too. And did I mention...I worked there for 4 years! Do you know how they honor teens for that kind of loyalty? In the form of a $2000 to the college of your choice. So my 1st year of college Chick-Fil-A gave me a free and clear check for $2000 for sticking with them for 4 years. To qualify, you need to work for them for 2 years or 2,000 hours.
And when we left...the lines had doubled or tripled.
