Hi everyone! Thanks for your interest in our 7 Steps to Partnership Programme!
We’ve had a lot of questions about it, so we’ve put the answers together in this Q&A article. Read on!
WHY ARE WE DOING THIS?
Simple. We are a People-first Partnership. That means want our staff to aim high, learn more, take on responsibility, and earn more. When our people grow, so do we as a company!
WHAT IS THE PROGRAMME?
It’s our way of creating more opportunities for our staff, and to make those opportunities clear and accessible. We want you all to see the career advancement here, and take them!
Lots, but mainly the Kitchen Trainer and Service Trainer positions. These bridge the gap from crew to the manager team (3IC and up). It helps you step up, apply what you’ve learned, and earn more!
WHAT DOES “TRAINER” MEAN?
The new positions are called “Trainer” because everyone above crew is, in reality, a trainer! Experienced staff help new crew all the time. If you have mastered kitchen skills, why not take on the authority to train others? More responsibility means more pay!
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
It depends on how fast you learn and how well you work. But you could be promoted from Crew to a Trainer position in just 2-3 months!
BUT MY SHOP ALREADY HAS TRAINERS AND MANAGERS!
Don’t worry! It’s OK for one shop to have more than one Kitchen Trainer, Service Trainer or 3IC. We want people to learn and get promoted. And don’t forget, St. Pierre’s is a growing company. We’re opening new shops and need experienced staff to run them. There’s space for everyone to grow!
If you have any more questions, please let us know! The Programme is designed to help front line staff grow – the more you ask, the more we can make it better for you! Hope to hear from you soon!
