    One of three finalists for a job that would pay more than double what I make now. Just need to nail what I am hoping is the final part of the process which is materials the hiring manager wants the three of us to submit.

    I had to design a Facebook ad. Finally not a circle picture!

    I actually think they are trying to get free work out of me because they want that, an outline of a Facebook ad campaign, a 250+ word blog post about their product that would appeal to the customers, and then outline a 3-part email campaign for the B2B part of the business.

    I actually have no fucking clue what to write for the B2B email campaign part aside from regurgitating most of what I wrote for the B2B part of the Facebook ad campaign, but just putting it in email format.

    I found out she is taking the same MBA program I went thru and is in the final semester, found out the marketing professor is the same as I had, so throwing in some of the exact same stuff and terminology he used for the ad campaign. Probably will for the email campaign too. I feel like that should help set me apart at least a little bit.

    Ok. I’ll send over the Facebook thing tomorrow after I read it over. If it’s not time sensitive, I find it’s best to let something marinate for a day then revisit when it’s not fresh in your memory anymore. Especially because I tend to go on and on if I get on a roll and not everything connects or flows well.

    Just got off the phone with a potential employer. It sounded like a good potential fit. They let me know at the end that they have been contracted at various times by my current employer so there is a two-way agreement against recruiting and hiring active employees of either.

    https://thehustle.co/why-it-only-costs-10k-to-own-a-chick-fil-a-franchise/

    A lower acceptance rate than Stanford


    According to Chick-fil-A, 60k people apply to be operators every year — and only ~80 are selected.

    With a 0.13% acceptance rate, it’s harder to become a Chick-fil-A franchisee than it is to get into Stanford University (4.8%), get a job at Google (0.23%), or even become a special agent for the Secret Service (1%).

    [​IMG]
    Zachary Crockett / The Hustle

    Chick-fil-A Operators go through a screening process that often lasts months.

    Quincy L.A. Springs IV, a Chick-fil-A Operator in Atlanta, had to complete 10 rounds of interviews, write 12 essays, and provide a copy of his high-school transcript. Once selected, he went through an “extensive, multi-week training program” covering everything from menu education to employment law.

    In lieu of wealthy investors, Chick-fil-A selects franchisees who are involved in their local communities. The company’s aim, says a spokesperson, is to find people who are willing to be “highly involved” in day-to-day operations. (While not a stated requirement, adhering to “Christian values” also doesn’t hurt an applicant’s chances).

    “You run every aspect of the restaurant six days a week,” says Jeremiah Cillpam, a Chick-fil-A franchise owner in Los Angeles. In return for 60-hour work-weeks, an operator might take home 5-7% of revenue (around $150-$250k per year).

    But from an investment perspective, certain things about being a Chick-fil-A franchisee aren’t so enticing:

    • They don’t own the restaurant or equipment (everything belongs to corporate).
    • They don’t have any equity stake in the business.
    • In most cases, they aren’t permitted to “own” multiple locations.
    • They aren’t permitted to run any other business.
    In essence, Chick-fil-A operators aren’t truly business owners — or even franchisees in the traditional sense.

    “When people start a business, they want flexibility and real ownership,” says Kenny Rose, CEO of Semfia, a firm that educates people on franchise investing. “But as a Chick-fil-A franchisee, you’re basically just working a traditional management job.”

    The hiring lady emailed me back today acknowledging receipt of documents and to apologize for not replying earlier as she got sick and work piled up while she was out. Said she would review today and tomorrow the materials everyone sent. So hopefully I hear something early next week.

    Also need to be highly involved in the community (read church attendance). I worked for CFA for a couple of years in high school at one of the more lucrative stores.

    Multiple GMs and assistant GMs ultimately moved into operator roles, especially if they were willing to relocate to a target market (California at the time).

    Yes my wife and I both worked in industry during college. I graduated college as a manager of a national QSR. I almost took a corporate job with BK out of college but decided against it. Worked out for me.

    It’s not chick fil a (I wish). They not only are insanely specific in their operators but in how they give up and reserve territory.

    quick service restaurant. Anything from fast food like McDonald’s to chipotle to TCBY ice cream.

    sort of. If you get accepted there is a path to store opening that includes working at all levels in another store/corporate store. In this specific instance it’s 6 months.

    Yeah you're working with a scummy agency. I started in agency and moved to corporate after a few years because agency fucking sucks unless you get really lucky. Good recruiters in agency are few and far between because it's a grind and most either go into corporate or some kind of more stable sales role.

    Update on the potential job...

    0563761A-0593-46F9-901A-0B3D42D03C95.jpeg

    Guess I’m just supposed to drop everything on relatively short notice and call out of work to fit into their 3.5 hour window for something that isn’t a sure thing.

    Long story short, we’re short staffed, they keep firing people over mostly minor shit, and they are cracking down hard on call outs and I called out sick one day last week with flu-like symptoms and had to go to the doctor to get a note to prove I was sick just for missing one day. So calling out twice in two weeks would be I’ll advised for something that’s not guaranteed.

    You're typically going to have to miss time at your current job to interview at another company. That's how it works.

    Also, it reads to me like they would love to have you in Friday morning for the second interview. If not, sometime after Tuesday would work. Hope you get the job because having to bring in a doctor note as an adult is goddamn insulting.

    Do you get a lunch break? Could you say you’re meeting a friend for lunch, especially since it sounds like they only need you for 30 minutes? For what it’s worth, I can’t imagine any employer saying they want to talk to you about a “potential offer” if they weren’t going to give you one. My hunch says they offer you in person during this meeting.

    Yes.

    nobody mentions a potential offer if they aren’t ready to offer you, as long as you don’t come in and fuck it up. This is just to reconfirm you’re not a psychopath, meet some folks and get roasted by HR on pay.

    I was just taken aback by the lack of flexibility when they were really flexible for the first interview. They basically said I could meet anytime these three days then before noon on this other day. Now it’s like here is a 3.5 hour slot.

    I do get fed for free on my lunch. But the job is not the best but I like the people, other than the shit tier GM, and the schedule has worked pretty well for me except for this one particular instance. The work-life balance is astronomically superior to my last job.
