Derrick G., Dish Machine Operator
My name is Derek Grant I’ve been with Flagship for three months. My position is at am DMO am Dish Machine operator the number one thing is to keep calm because if you panic you’re all over the place. I separate everything if bowls are coming, I separate bowls, I separate utensils, because it does get busy especially around lunchtime it’s nonstop, non-top, so you really have to just have a system.
Derek is an extremely outgoing positive individual he’s open to working any station, at any time, just does everything with just true enthusiasm. There’s jobs that I had in the past that I wasn’t happy with that I dreaded coming to, and working with Flagship even if I’m tired or whatever I make sure I’m not late. It’s just the environment is it’s awesome.
I hardly see anybody with a negative attitude, people are always uplifting. Managers are always willing to teach me new things. My plan is to stay with the company for as long as I can, I don’t plan on going anywhere. I definitely want to move up in the company, maybe I can move up to prepping and being a chef.
I would consider highly for anybody to apply to Flagship. I think that they would really enjoy working here. I’m not gonna lie what makes me stay so positive is because the choices that I made in the past weren’t good and the jobs that I had weren’t as good as this. I’m glad I’ve grown and I really appreciate being here and more positive every day.
