Why Should you hire me?
Hello, you should hire me for your manager's position because I like to help promote the growth of your business. I will help to engage your employees to be the best they can be because I like to be the best I can be at my job. I believe a management team should build their team up and promote a teammate mentality and support because if one part of the team is not proﬁcient then the others will then be too. If a team member isn’t performing to the best of their a ability then it’s the managers time to give pointers on how to be better and why. Never should a manger just say your weak and leave you in a lack mentality. A leader will take the time necessary to ﬁnd why that team member may not be performing, and once that’s understood, then build that teammate’s conﬁdence or ﬁnd a solution for that team member, because it may be something at home or work. I believe that will help with retention of employees because it shows that management cares about their employees in general. I have one thing to say for me. I was blessed to be able to be at home with my children for 12 years. I just started back working in December. In my time at home, my career path was skewed to be a general manager or assistant manager or any manager at all. If I would have kept working that was my goal or owning my own restaurant. I still have those goals. I’ve been trained in front and back of the house through Ryan’s steakhouse. I started as a server and then joined the corporate training team. I’ve always wanted to be one of the ﬁrst ones to know what was happening in the company or business, if I wasn’t part of that experience. With my time on the training team, we had the chance to rewrite the team member manuals and part of that was the manager's manual. In discussions, I made the request that manager’s should know how to operate all the equipment in the restaurant, and should know the operations and responsibilities in every department because in essence the General manager would be the “store owner” in a small business setting and in the corporate setting the General Manager “is in absence of the owner” or the “caretaker,” and should know the ends and outs just like an owner would. With this, we had a hand in transforming how managers were trained. In addition to training at the corporate o ce, the training managers had to train in the store department in the store there in Greer, SC. They had to complete one shift in each department before they were sent to their home stores. I loved that job. It would be an honor to help with your team building.
If not a manager, then serving or help in the back of the house would suit me also.

Ryan’s Steakhouse Corporate Trainer— Greer, SC -Server Trainer
August 23, 2006 - March 15,2008
In this position, I was responsible for training up to 100 - 150 new team members. My main position was server trainer, but I was able to train other positions; kitchen, grill, dish room, meat room, food prep, bakery, host and cashier, and o ce. In this time, we would also implement new recipes and policies for the corporate o ce. We would clean and organize the restaurant before we open the store for training the new team members, and guests. We also, wrote new manuals for training the team items in each store, did inventory, placed orders, and Distributed The items needed for each part of the store. We also, converted other restaurants to Ryan/ﬁre mountain. We would go in and thoroughly clean each area which included all equipment to make sure it was working properly and safe for the guests to eat food made in them. My favorite thing about this job was, if you made a suggestion, more than likely they will use it. I don’t have the credit for it, but I suggested that managers need to be able to run each department just in case they need to and the other manager on duty is busy and know how to clean and most of the equipment. With this, the company revamped their manager training course to have them live in each department in a store before being assigned their permanent store.
