I remember reading about a place that gives your initial CFI if you agree to work for them. Do y'all know where this was?

Somewhere between Nirvana and Hotel California.

I've heard of places offering a free MEII with employment, but not a free CFI.

Yep. Free CFI if you sign a contract. Check this out:

Flight Instructor Jobs in Florida - Epic Flight Academy (http://epicflightacademy.com/flight-instructor-fast-track/)

They're not taking applications right now but are likely to do so in the future.

Bump. Is there any other schools that are offering free CFI training with contract other than Epic or FlightSafety?

I would only caution that it is more important where you choose to be a CFI, not where you were able to save the money on the rating. Pay, hours flown, equipment, working conditions, flyable days etc are all things to take into consideration.

You will pay anywhere from 50-100k for your flight ratings, a few thousand for a CFI is not something to take a less than desirable job over.
