Promoted to AKM!

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Yep that's me and I was! LOL

Our KM is leaving for a higher paying job and so the current AKM is being promoted to KM and I was the only person on staff he wanted for his AKM. He and I do work really well together and we share the same work ethic and I got the "we are really proud of your work here with us, you have a strong work ethic and it reflects in what you do" talk and they offered me the job.

I have a bit to learn between now and the 26th when the changes are official but most of it is ordering stuff and learning the computer as well as some p&p stuff.

Soo.. any advice??

Looks like somebody has to change their Experience tag now.

Congratulations!

These guys are right, Grats man! There really isnt anything to say until you go through it. Once youve started to feel the changes, we'll all be here, but its a really exciting time. If Id say anything, shake off any negative activity from the rest of the line cooks that may give you a little grief, theres a reason they're not in your positon. Good luck!!

Funny you should say that... there is one guy who's not going to be a happy boy when it's announced because he wants it and thinks he's going to get it. Oh well.. maybe if he wasn't in the back on his phone all the time and taking 45 minute lunch breaks they may have considered him!

Excellent, well done! I hope they keep you on hourly with overtime until you make KM. So what are you planning on spending the extra $'s on?

Yep I'm on hourly with OT if it happens so that's good for me! As for the extra $$... likely sock it away for a vacation this winter between school semesters for the kids.

Thanks!

I definitely see an employee issue on the horizon.. it's with the guy who thinks he is gonna get the AKM job.. but once things are announced hopefully it will settle down. I think the writing is pretty much on the wall though.. if he was going to have the job he'd be the one doing the ordering etc... not me.
