This past week, I conducted an informational interview with Aaron Riipa, a Sourcing Manager in Media for General Mills (at their headquarters). I first got into contact with this person by meeting another employee at the same company. The other worker was speaking to one of my student groups and after chatting once the meeting was over he thought it would be helpful for me to chat to another person. Aaron is head of supply chain recruiting at the U for General Mills and as he could be the one hiring me someday he was definitely someone I needed to speak with. He was perfect for me as he started out in buying and now is in sourcing, which are two paths I am considering taking. I learned a great deal from the conversation. For example, I found out that General
Chick-fil-a was the only job I could find when the time came for me to work to fund the majority of my college expenses. I wasn’t exactly thrilled to be working at a fast food establishment but the positive and cheerful environment that was fostered there made it fun. The customers always welcomed it and reciprocated it with equal enthusiasm. I saw the positive results of a customer-centered business. This model could be applied in my future career in medicine to ensure that patients feel heard and appreciated while employees feel happy to go to work. I also learned the importance of time management skills. For the last 7 months I worked at Chick-fil-a, I was also working an added 12 hour shift as a scribe in the ER. It was difficult balancing
Ever since I was a kid I didn’t think that I was good at anything. My pastor said that everyone had a calling, a gift, something that nobody else can do better than that person. It was so hard watching people around me find their gift, like my sister. My little sister is good at about anything art related. She can draw, play the flute, and if she ever did theatre she would probably be good at that too. It was really discouraging watching her find her gifts at age twelve and I was fifteen and wasn’t good at anything. I tried a lot of different classes to see what I was good at. I tried chorus in middle school, theatre, and volleyball. Until I finally found my gift.
I chose Chick fil a for the Code of ethics because chick fil a is a popular fast food restaurant that serves the best quality, and customer service against the big top competitors that have been in the industry for a longer period of time. I do not work for Chick fil a so I thought it would be interesting to learn more about the company since i frequently dine there.

When ever the world " Fast Food " used, it doesn 't mean unhealthy every time. There also exist top fast food restaurants. Actually its the image made by many of fast food restaurants who prepare and sell foods made up of unhealthy stuff and based on cheap ingredients.
With many restaurants nationwide to choose from. I really enjoy visiting Chick-fil-A that I visit at least 2 times a month if not weekly. Customer Service is always respectful, attentive and kind- from the moment you walk in, to the employees who walk through the dining area making sure your meal came out right. The food is always freshly hot. My favorite fast food chicken sandwich around. This fast food restaurant is always busy and the vibe is nothing but positive, with kids playing, families eating and plenty of the retired community enjoying a bite amid the pseudo-chaos (the children, not the employees).My respect to the manager for putting together such a fun, clean and safe environment with good food, reasonable value and good nutrition options. Therefore, next time you drive past a Chick-fil-a don’t hesitate to go in and enjoy a great
Ever since i was able to talk and walk I have been a die hard IU fan and now that I am a senior i am one step away from possibly attending my dream school. As an undergraduate i plan on pursuing a business career that would allow myself to reach and receive a Bachelors degree with a major in Business Operations while obtaining a Marketing Minor which will authorize me to move on and reach my goal of owning my own business in more specific terms owning a Chick-Fil-A. Ive been working at Chick Fil A since I was fifteen and have recently been promoted to the management team which I am very humbled by since I am only sixteen.
Everyone has a responsibility to do. However, for working student like me that having a part-time job while taking college courses is a big responsibility. I decided to go to school full-time and work part-time to learn to become independent. In the essay “Working at Wendy’s” by Joey Franklin, he makes a case for setting aside pride to provide the daily needs of a family. On the other hand, I think it was great to have the experience as long as it made me more money.

Working at Chick-fil-a, I play the role of captain, mentor, and leader. Although I get paid to interact with guests, it is more important to care for my team. I get to work with and care for the team members every day as they are like family. The best part of working at Chick-fil-a is the interaction between team members and leaders. Many look up to me for guidance and leadership, but they are also my friends. Several months ago, someone saw potential in me and gave me this position, so it is now my job to see potential in others and invest in
Acquiring a job, whether it be in a doctor’s office or a fast-food restaurant, can transform a person.

"Can I have my five burritos and ten sandwiches now please?!" I beg the guys in the food truck.
