Your vibe and experience
While a post-secondary education in the Human Resources field and previous experience working in food service or retail in a HR context is always helpful and appreciated, what is most important is who you are.
You are a driven HR professional who understands general principles and matters, while knowing your counsel is equal parts logic, analysis, and strategy. You are actively engaged with people and demonstrate care, respect and passion for our guests. Equipping, trusting and empowering people to reveal their best self is what makes you want to go to work every day. You have a keen sense of what success and celebration should look like for the team you are working with. You adapt quickly to changing information, situations and direction while not losing momentum.
