A great introduction into Corporate America
Administration (Former Employee) – Irvine, CA – January 21, 2019
I was in my mid 20s when I was given the assignment to work at the Habit Burger Corporate office through a temp agency. At the time, The Habit was very small and I had never heard of them. Within a week, I was offered a permanent position as the corporate office's receptionist/administrator.
Because the chain was so small at the time, I took on a variety of various new roles. I definitely learned a lot during my time there. Unfortunately, despite my efforts taking on new roles, opportunity never seemed to show itself, and I remained a receptionist until I gave my notice.
I left the company back in 2013, and the company has appeared to have grown so much since then, so I can't speak to its culture or willingness to promote. I enjoyed everyone I worked with, and I'd be willing to bet the team working there would be no different.
Personally, in a small company, I took on many new roles. Great intro to corporate culture
At the time, promotions from within were hard to come by.
