Teachers at Canyon High School were surprised to get summer job offers from Chick-fil-A today.
Gift cards attached to a Chick-fil-A flyer promising flexible hours, competitive pay and a positive work environment were distributed in faculty mailboxes yesterday.
“Calling ALL Educators and District Employees,” the headline read.
However, the link provided on the flyer — https://www.snagajob.com/jobs/562021166 — points to positions for team members/drivers that are no longer available.
Chick-fil-A’s media team did not immediately return a request for comment about its Teacher Program.
But Canyon High School Principal Dustin Davisson had plenty to say in an email to teachers at 5:31 p.m.
He said the gift cards and flyers were placed in teacher mailboxes without being reviewed by campus administration first.
“I want to ensure our community, and most importantly our teachers, that Canyon High School values our teachers and would not do anything to insinuate that employment is encouraged elsewhere,” he said. “To that end, I want to apologize to any of our teachers who were offended because of this flyer.”
According to the website of an Austin Chick-fil-A franchisee, salaries for “team members” at the popular chain start at $12 per hour and rise to $16.25 for full-time employment.
Salaries for Comal ISD teachers start at around $50,000 per year.
