What attracted me to BKC

What attracted me the most to BKC was the power and strength of its brand, the fact that it is a global multinational company, and its corporate structure with 3G Capital as a major investor. I also was looking for a company where I would be able to quickly grow and develop both professionally and personally, and I knew at BKC this was possible.

My career path so far

I started the Leadership Development Program in July 2013 and was hired full-time as a Senior Analyst in the Supply Chain Management department upon completing my training. Six months into my role, in July 2014, I was promoted to become the Manager of the Supply Chain Management department.

My view on the BKC culture

When I first came in, I found myself immersed in a vibrant and highly collaborative environment that allowed me to adapt easily and start contributing to the company, acquiring immense amounts of knowledge along the way. Overall it is a very results-driven culture where all departments and team members are focused on achieving a single goal – happy and satisfied guests.

My most rewarding moments working at BKC

One of the most surprising parts of the Leadership Development Program is that, since the beginning, I was exposed to continuous challenges that helped me to develop both personally and professionally.

My most rewarding and memorable moment has definitely been the moment I was announced I had been promoted! After six months of working at BKC I was very ecstatic that BKC confided in me and chose to internally promote me.

My advice if you’re thinking of applying to BKC

During the selection process, do not be afraid of taking ownership of the situation, fighting for your thoughts. Just remember to base your suggestions on facts and data. How I bring it to BKC every day: Every day I come in to work with the energy and desire to exceed yesterday’s performance. BKC offers you daily numerous of opportunities and challenges, but it’s really up to you to take them. On a daily basis I choose to take on these opportunities and challenges.
