Chick-fil-A location in North Carolina sought volunteers to work for food
(CNN) - A Chick-fil-A in North Carolina was looking for so-called ‘volunteer’ workers who would be paid with chicken sandwiches and fries instead of actual wages.
The store in Hendersonville posted the position on social media Tuesday, calling it “‘volunteer-based opportunity” where drive-through workers would be paid with five entrees a shift instead of money.
The move generated some backlash.
Chick-fil-A ended up taking the post down.
Store manager said the offer was meant for people who “think it’s a good fit for them” and was different from full- or part-time employment.
But a Chick-fil-a spokesperson in Atlanta told the Washington Post Thursday that the Hendersonville store had “decided to end this program.”
