"When I began with the company, I completed an introduction in London head office where we learned about the integral parts of the company: where the food comes from, the environmental department, the complaints department, the training department, the systems department etc. We took on team-building skills too. I have completed the initial training, which teaches you the basic skills within the store. I have also completed a crew trainer programme, which teaches you how to lead a team and aid in their training. I have also begun an area leader training section where I will learn more about the management within the restaurant."
