I have been absolutely, terribly behind in blogging. SO BAD!! That changes today!!!
As you likely know, Kyle + I moved our family to Iowa in May of last year (2018). We did this to pursue the opportunity for Kyle to work with Chick-fil-A again, and as a serious step towards his goal of hopefully becoming a Chick-fil-A Owner/Operator one day! You can read more about that here, here and here!
When we moved from NC to Iowa last May him applying seemed SO far away. Now, it’s starting and it’s a bit overwhelming, but again, EXCITING to get closer to his future goal of being an Chick-fil-A Operator!! This past week he was in Atlanta for a few days living his best life, and also got the unique opportunity to have his first initial interview for the Leadership Development Program there.
I was sick pretty much the whole time he was gone and barely keeping up with the kids, but I wouldn’t change it for the world. I loved seeing and hearing about how pumped and excited he is for the future!! I know he missed the traveling/networking that he got to do with his old job, and that this has been fun for him to do that again 💕
You will be able to read more about his first “home office” experience soon!
But for now to the LDP update…
On his last day there he had his first interview! He wore the sharpest suit, and reddest power tie!!
He watched the video (watch here) that I made him last month before it started (and he actually didn’t cry this time.. barely), and that just makes me so happy!!!
He feels that his interview went incredible, but now we are now playing the waiting game.. aka the HARDEST part!! From what we understand he should have an official word on if he gets to do move to the next round of interviewing by mid-next week! This next one would be a video call, like the first one was supposed to be haha, and then from what we understand from others who’ve been accepted recently the last would be in person!
The process looks a little different than last time, however its still very true to Chick-fil-A’s process of hiring and vetting it’s people!!
Here’s a bit of the timeline to his LDP Process so far:
4/18/19- Sent in Expression of Interest
4/19/19- Recieved Application
4/22/19- Submitted Application
4/25/19- Confirmed His First Interview
5/9/19- First Interview- Happened in-person! Usually a call, but it worked out that he would be at corporate!
5/10/19- Anxiously waits…. Oh wait that’s probably just me hahaha!
Until the next update we will be dreaming and eating more chicken haha!!
