Who we are  
We use our core values as a compass to guide our decisions because they are our North Star.  If we live our core values daily, we know everything else will take care of itself.  We enjoy a culture rooted in giving back to others through our time, talents, labor, and financial commitment.  We are successful when we collaborate with and value each other like family, maintain a hunger to delight guests and continuously innovate, listen closely for even the smallest need for improvement, stand up for convictions, and genuinely own our responsibilities as if our name is on the outside of the building. 
 
Our Ideal Candidates
  • Actively Listen – Take an active role in listening by being present in the moment, using healthy body language, and ensuring joint understanding.  When we read between the lines and hear what others are saying and what they are not saying, we encounter amazing opportunities to go the extra mile in serving them.  
  • Collaborate – Realize that we are better together than we are alone.  We achieve much better results when others have the opportunity to add their diverse perspectives.  Be open to feedback and actively seek input from a variety of people at varying levels because the best ideas come from those who are closest to those we serve. 
  • Engage in Servant Leadership – Put others ahead of yourself even when it’s difficult.  Find opportunities to lead by example in the way you pitch in and help others.  Giving back to others is at the heart of what we do.  
  • Build Relationships – Cultivate trust in relationships by showing respect and sensitivity.  Invest time in helping others to continuously improve by listening to their ideas and helping them to continuously improve.  
  • Own Results – Own issues you encounter even when they are outside of your area of responsibility by taking action or seeking out the needed resolution. You are empowered and expected to take risks aimed at exceeding the expectations of our guests.  Take advantage of this rare opportunity by utilizing available resources.
