BENEFIT #1: MONEY
Here at the Croc, we know that you are our most important resource, so we pay 30% above the industry average.
BENEFIT #2: RAISES COME SOONER AND LATER
You want a raise and not some dinky cost-of-living increases. At The Croc, raises don’t come automatically but, if you do your job well, they’ll come frequently. Your first chance comes after 90 days of hire. At your review, we’ll assess your performance and you will, too. You will tell us if the job is working for you and, if not, how we can help. After that, we give formal reviews annually – informal ones sooner if you request it. Each review is an opportunity for you to get a raise.
BENEFIT #3: HEALTH INSURANCE? WE’VE GOT YOU COVERED
We may not be a Fortune 500 Company, but we value our employees like one. Our health insurance and prescription drug plans are among the best in the business. We pay 70% of coverage costs. Your contribution will be around $50/month.
BENEFIT #4: NO NIGHTS. NO WEEKENDS.
What more need we say? It’s near impossible to find catering opportunities like this in our industry. We also won’t work you to the bone. The last thing we want is a burnt-out, frazzled caterer. We work at an efficient, progressive pace in order to eliminate long hours, stress and the irritability that too much work can create. Occasionally weekend and night catering is available for those interested in earning extra bucks.
BENEFIT #5: VACATION TIME
Vacation privileges begin on your one-year anniversary. One week after one year; two weeks after three years; three weeks after five years.
BENEFIT #6: INDIVIDUAL SALES INCENTIVE BONUSES
We want new customers and you’ll be rewarded for getting them. While making catering deliveries or doing catering prep—actually whenever, wherever, whatever—always be on the lookout for potential new customers. Introduce yourself. Pass out your business card. Offer a potential new customer a free café lunch. If you bring in a new catering customer, you’ll get an UNBELIEVABLE bonus incentive – so good we can’t even post it on the site!
BENEFIT #7: TUITION REIMBURSEMENT PROGRAM
If you want classroom learning, we’ll help you find the curriculum to meet your needs. We’ll reimburse the cost for pre-approved coursework 100% when you receive a grade of B or better.
BENEFIT #8: NO WORK ON THE HOLIDAYS
We are always closed on the five major holidays. We feel it’s very important for you to enjoy the holidays with your loved ones. And after you celebrate your one-year anniversary with us, you can stay home and get paid for these holidays: New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.
BENEFIT #9: A GREAT TEAM OF SUPPORTIVE COWORKERS
There are no surly malcontents around here. If we ever do make a mistake and hire some miserable cuss, we get rid of them fast. You will become part of a cohesive group that respects and trusts each other. Our catering team members are required to be extremely punctual and maintain excellent attendance records. We have found that good people don’t want to put up with the usual nonsense that most corporate caterers tolerate.
BENEFIT #10: PERFECT PEOPLE COACHING PROGRAM
When you sign on with us, you are automatically enrolled (for free) in this coaching program (see haveperfectpeople.com). Other small business owners pay $6999 to enroll in this program for just 6 weeks. This program will teach you skills in leadership, marketing, recruiting, training, performance management, and more).
BENEFIT #11: GREAT WORKING CONDITIONS
We buy only the best food and equipment (and we are careful how we use it). You know, we have a motto around here: “Never Buy Cheap Shit.” This applies to our equipment, our food, and our people.
BENEFIT #12: WORK IN AN INCREDIBLE ATMOSPHERE
We’re located in a beautiful, safe business complex in the suburbs (near Malvern, King of Prussia, Chesterbrook) with lots of free parking.
BENEFIT #13: FREE FOOD SHOWS & COOKING CLASSES
We are happy to pick up the tab for any local food shows or cooking classes you wish to attend. Keep abreast of the latest catering trends and opportunities. If you see anything that you are interested in, let us know. We would love to help.
BENEFIT #14: FREE YOGA CLASSES
Learn a new way to exercise, relieve stress and concentrate with our free yoga program. Give it a shot. You will be glad you did.
BENEFIT #15: BECOME AN EMPLOYEE COMPANIES FIGHT FOR
The time you spend at The Crocodile will be an investment in yourself because learning opportunities abound here. You’ll discover your hidden talents using our Strengths Assessment Analysis and then we will you put those talents to use to make your own dreams a reality.
BENEFIT # 16: CROCODILE LIBRARY
You can learn about leadership, management, psychology, yoga, Zen, the culinary arts and more from the CDs, DVDs and books in our lending library.
BENEFIT #17: GREAT MANAGEMENT TEAM
Since we aren’t some national chain, we can afford to keep our managers around a long time. They are experienced and committed.
BENEFIT #18: GYM MEMBERSHIP
We are strong believers in physical fitness. You have to work out to get in shape and you need to work out to stay in shape. At Crocodile, we keep a supply of gym memberships available. These are issued depending on seniority. The only requirement is that you go to the gym at least 6 times per month.
BENEFIT #19: EARN WHILE YOU LEARN
We value personal growth and learning. So much so, that we will pay you to learn something new. With our Earn While You Learn self-study program, you pick the business topic, get it approved, and then do a little research on it. Share what you’ve learned with our catering staff in an informal presentation and you’ll give your paycheck a big time boost. Plus, since you’ve gotten smarter, you’ll be more valuable to us when review time comes around.
