Full Job Description

In addition the ideal candidate will be able to offer verbal and written Staff performance evaluations, and suggestions for improvement, including a series of escalated warnings that would preface any final terminations. The ideal candidate will be able to lead a team by example and have the ability to motivate team members to give 100% and strive to excel daily.
