What attracted me to BKC

I was initially attracted to BKC's internship program. During the interview proces, everyone I met was working on impactful projects, and the values of meritocracy and accountability were exhibited over and over again. During my internship, I saw the values come to life- being involved in a project that directly impacted multiple departments as well as franchisees. Every day was different and I was constantly learning about both the company and myself. When I received my full-time offer, there wasn't a doubt in my mind that I wanted to return as a member of the next LDP class.

My career path so far

My internship was in Global Business Services (GBS) under Franchise Contract Management within the Order to Cash Tower. As a member of the LDP program, I spent ten weeks in the restaurants. My first rotation was in Real Estate under North America Finance. I went back to GBS for my second rotation, this time in the Data Management Tower. Since my final placement, I have been working in Global Development and Franchisee Performance.

My view on the BKC culture

BKC culture is exciting! I'm surrounded by intelligent, driven, like-minded individuals. I learn something new every day. There is always a lot going on and certainly no two days are the same. Through our MBO system and open floor plan, you realize your work is connected to your neighbor's or to that of a person across the floor or even across the world. In my opinion few companies are upfront about what they expect from their employees and BK is certainly one of them. This is definitely a company unlike any other.

My most rewarding moments working at BKC

During our global onboarding week, we met LDP's from the Europe and Asia offices. Throughout the week, we had the opportunity to work together and truly get to know one another. This created a rapport that has turned into a very productive working relationship. Being in a global role, having the opportunity to understand the people you work with, and knowing who is on the other end of the phone, makes the job more fun and rewarding.

My advice if you’re thinking of applying to BKC

When applying here, be ready to work hard and take in all the opportunities that are presented to you- there will be many. You'll be given responsibility from day one, and rising to the challenge will teach you more and at a faster pace. Learn as much as possible.

How I bring it to BKC every day

Every day, I walk in knowing the goals I plan to accomplish, yet ready to adapt to changing circumstances. I actively seek opportunities to add value within my role, and feel empowered to take action on my ideas. I'm constantly pushing to exceed my targets and BRING IT every day.
