Oh my gosh! I am just totally blown away with my nieces saga with getting a job at Chick Fil A. She's 18 years old, a senior in High School and worked at Subway last year. Last week on Facebook, she posted that she has a job interview! When she says it's for Chick Fil A, I figure the "interview" is just a formality and she'll be working again soon. And besides, that's a good thing, she'll always have Sundays off! Her interview was Saturday, and the last thing I heard, she had a second interview that went well also. OK, I could be wrong, but I'm almost positive she's not going for a management position here. Well, tonight she posts that it's looking good for her Chick Fil A job because she has her 3rd interview on Saturday. Geeze o flip! C'mon, I mean, this is a high-school teenager applying for a fast-food job here... I even asked her if they were doing a background check on her! OK, OK, I worked at McDonald's right out of High School and did go into management eventually. When we had an interview it was either "When can you start" or on those rare occasions "Sorry, we don't need you." But we pretty much knew right away. And at this time there was a huge job shortage like there is now... So, how hard do you think it is to get a fast-food job right now????
