Some of you may recognize this place as Chic-fil-A! It is our very favorite fast food restaurant and one of the best companies for teenagers to work for. And...they are closed on Sundays!
Emily went through an extensive interview process (group, phone and personal) to get the job...and funny thing is...my husband knows the owner! After the interview process, the new training class was hired, pending graduation from the Chic-fil-A training program, which lasted several weeks. At the last class, they held "Graduation" where every new employee received a table of gifts that expressed something about them....and their name tag!
These were her gifts...a volleyball, of course, sunglasses, bangles, a flip flop candle, and candy!
Isn't that just so much fun!
These are the only pics I have been able to take so far.
And you should know that I got into HUGE trouble for taking these and embarrassing her!
Although, I thought it was hysterical when I heard another girl say,
"My Mom did it too, Emily!"
She has learned a lot already about herself...and about people in general.
She is only able to work 12 hours per week...and she averages about 8. She also cannot work past 7 pm. And remember I said "they are closed on Sundays", so she still has time for all the other teenager stuff that she needs and enjoys!
She has gotten several paychecks...she spent the first 3 on clothes. Now she is ready to start saving and maybe even get a debit card...Oh my! We will need another training class before we get to that!
We are very excited to see her working in a place that values the family and we are excited about what she is learning at such a young age.
I know some of you have never been to a Chic-fil-A. While you are vacationing this summer, be on the lookout! I'd love to know what you think.
Have a great day!
