Chick-fil-A faces backlash after asking volunteers to work for food

A Chick-fil-A restaurant in Hendersonville, North Carolina, is facing online criticism after posting a call on social media for volunteers to work in the restaurant’s new express drive-thru.

The fast chicken restaurant promised free entrees instead of monetary compensation.

“We are looking for volunteers for our new Drive Thru Express!” said the Hendersonville Chick-fil-A in a Facebook post that has since been deleted after a flood of negative comments.

The post earlier this week said volunteers would earn five free entries per shift (one hour) worked and asked those interested to message for details.

The Hendersonville Chick-fil-A declined to comment and directed all media inquiries to the company newsroom. Chick-fil-A responded via email and linked to a statement given to Business Insider. The corporate press team did not respond to questions submitted by the Times-News.
