Serenity-1Congratulations to Serenity Pickett, Hop Jack’s Featured Team Member for March 2018

Maple Valley Cocktail server, Serenity Pickett has been selected as Hop Jack’s Featured Team Member for March.

“Serenity is an amazing team member, always willing to help and go the extra mile,” said her General Manager Bill Boyle. “She always has a smile and a great attitude. I cannot remember once, while working with her, where she was not in a great mood. She helps out her fellow team members and is always there to support the guest and her team.”

Serenity has been a valued member of our Hop Jack’s family since March of 2016. She is trained not only as a cocktail server but also a dining room server and bartender. Her most memorable Hop Jack’s moment was her very first bartender shift. She appreciates the team work at Hop Jack’s and will never forget receiving a generous tip from a guest. “It was only my 3rd week working at Hop Jack’s during a very busy rush, the guest complimented me on my speed of service and how I kept their orders straight.”

In her spare time Serenity enjoys beer, specifically an iced cold Hop Jack’s IPA, along with a Buffalo Wrap. In her younger year’s she enjoyed horse barrel racing and showing sheep.

When not at Hop Jack’s Serenity spends time in the outdoors and exploring Washington.

Thank you, Serenity for your hard work ethic, guest oriented service and for being a great team member. We appreciate all you do for Hop Jack’s and our guests!

Hop Jack’s Featured Team Member for February, Jessica Holly, has made a huge impact at the Hop Jack’s in Snohomish in the two short months she has worked with the company.

“Jessica started with us about a month and a half after we opened but you would think she had been here since day one!” said her manager Michaela McAuliff. “She has done an amazing job learning how to do things herself and supporting the team around her.”

Jessica holds the position of line cook on the hot side with goals of being an Assistant Kitchen Manager and Kitchen Manager in the future.

She makes every shift better with her awesome laugh and hard work ethic. Her favorite part of working at Hop Jack’s is knowing her team members enjoy being there and want to work hard.

From the beginning Jessica felt a connection and warm welcome from her co-workers and guests. She was very touched when a guest recently stopped her outside of the restaurant to let her know how great his experience was.

When not at Hop Jack’s, Jessica enjoys spending time at the park with her two young children and their dog.

Jessica, as you continue to grow and improve, we have no doubt your goals will become reality. Thank you for your dedication, positive attitude and commitment to Hop Jack’s! We appreciate you!

Jesse-Witte-FTM-JanuaryCongratulations to Hop Jack’s Featured Team Member for January, Jesse Witt!

Jesse has worked at the Klahanie Hop Jack’s since October 2017. In her short time with the company, she has made a huge impact. Her work ethic, dedication and eagerness to learn are just a few of the reasons she has been selected as Hop Jack’s featured team member for January 2018.

Jesse was chosen for several reasons including the pride she puts into her work, said her General Manager, Patrick Brown. “She doesn’t do anything half way.” She approaches work from the heart. “Being one of our younger team members she is always proving her skill set is that of someone who has many more years of experience. Jesse is always happy to come to work early or stay late.”

Jesse is a versatile employee and is trained as a busser, host, cold side in the kitchen and as an expo. When working in the kitchen she loves to create great looking, delicious food for her guests to enjoy.

When she is off the clock, Jesse enjoys the outdoors; riding dirt bikes, hiking and working on cars. She can change her own oil, fix tires, power steering and a few other car issues that have come up along the way.

When asked about her favorite “go to” Hop Jack’s menu items, Jesse loves chicken or beef nachos and sipping on a raspberry icy drink.

Thank you, Jesse, for your dedication, commitment to Hop Jack’s and the impact you’ve made at our Klahanie location! We appreciate you.
