Assistant Manager

Burger King, (Valley King franchise)

I first started at Burger King in high school, 1995, and worked summers while attending Michigan Technological University.  After graduation I took a job in the insurance industry until my husband lost his job.

When returning to Wisconsin I went back to the franchise and quickly advanced to assistant store manager.

Duties included but were not limited to: supervising various shifts, inventory management, overseeing cash and deposits, payroll and employee scheduling, and employee training.
