Puckett’s Offers Opportunities for all Employees
Kitchen Manager, Victor Delgado, is a testament to the opportunity Puckett’s offers for their employees to grow. Victor’s journey at Puckett’s began six years ago when he was hired as a cook. He eventually worked his way up to kitchen manager, where his favorite part of the job is working together with everyone in the “Puckett’s family.”
“It feels like family here,” Victor said. “People who work here are happy, and the customers can tell.”
Victor wants people who are interested in working at Puckett’s to know that the restaurant offers opportunities for everyone, and that the people are good at communicating, listening to what everyone has to say.
He is looking forward to continuing his journey with Puckett’s.
“Thanks to the Marshall family I have been working here for years, and I hope for many more to come.”
It’s the Little Things That Makes Puckett’s Stand Out
Working at Puckett’s definitely changed the life of waitress Jami Joe. When she pulled into Nashville from Florida in 2012, she didn’t know anyone and was looking for a job. She saw on Facebook that Puckett’s was hiring, so she applied and interviewed.
When she started training two days later, the first person she met was Craig, her future husband. In addition to her husband, Puckett’s has provided Jami with lifelong friends.
“I can count on these people for anything,” Jami said. “At Puckett’s the people come first, whether it’s a family emergency or your car breaks down- they care about you.”
Although, Puckett’s has grown rapidly over the four years Jami has been there, she believes it just means more opportunities. Jami has many responsibilities within the restaurant, including coordinating large parties and training new employees.
“At the heart of it all, it’s still a family owned business with family values,” Jami Joe said.
Although Jami has worked for larger restaurants, she believes Puckett’s is special because of the camaraderie that exists between everyone. She says it’s these small things, like the family feel, that make Puckett’s stand out from the rest.
“Any issues I’ve ever had with a customer or scheduling, they’ve never batted an eye,” Jami said.
