Naf Naf Grill is a successful company because we have a people-first culture. What does people-first mean for us? People-first means we're focused on developing the careers of our crew members through shoulder-to-shoulder training, formal training programs, and an approach to career progress that isn't critical but collaborative. When crewmembers work hard to uphold our standards, we work hard to create new opportunities for them, and in turn everyone wins.
Unlike other restaurant companies, at Naf Naf Grill we aren't looking for culinary-trained cooks or experienced general managers to manage our restaurants. Instead, all we look for are the happy, focused, and energetic. Come to work with these traits and rest assured that every skill you need to be successful at Naf Naf Grill we will teach you.
90% of new management positions at Naf Naf Grill were promoted from the hourly crew. Opportunities always exist for new crew and our managers and trainers are constantly looking for the next class of leaders.
Not long. Depending on the circumstances, a crewmember has been promoted to General Manager in as short as two months. Other crew that are not yet prepared and want to continue learning at a slower pace have worked with us for much longer before making the commitment.
Where do you see yourself six months, a year, and five years from now?
The Career Map shows crew members how they can work their way up in the company position-by-position and is the basis for how we train crew. On the career map, there are two pathways that employees can blaze through. The first pathway is called the Frontline. The Frontline pathway is designed for customer-service oriented crew members that enjoy working directly with our customers. The second pathway is called the Backline. The Backline pathway is designed for crew members that are focused on our culinary skill sets and food. This pathway ends at Kitchen Specialist.
