Each week Managers in Training from around the country come to the Darden offices in Orlando, FL to learn the tools and techniques they will need to excel in management. And last week, for the first time, our MITs were among the attendees.
While in Orlando, the MITs spend an intense week training to work well with team members and guests and learn safe cooking and working techniques. They also have the opportunity to interact with other MITs from around the country.
“The whole operation is really impressive and very well organized,” said Sara M. from Yard House Pasadena, CA.
“It’s a great opportunity to come and see how we are part of a bigger picture,” said Cesar J. from Yard House Rancho Cucamonga, CA. “And it’s great to get to meet some other MITs from the other brands to get a chance to hear about their experiences and stories.”
Fredrick J., an MIT from Yard House Denver, CO, said his co-workers made very specific requests before he left. “Bring back key chains, mugs, golf balls – they wanted anything with a Darden logo on it!”
Michael M. from Yard House Rancho Cucamonga, CA, said his restaurant would be happy to have him back. “We’re always so busy, so I know the team back home is ready for me to come back and put what I’ve learned here to use.”
