How Do I Level Up

  • Every person in a leadership role will be observing you when you work a position. When that person sees you doing well or struggling they will give you feedback to help you improve your skills at that level.

  • When a leader sees that you are a master at that position and capable of teaching and training someone else how to work that position, they will pass you at the level you are working on.


  • Every team member has their own personal checklist when they start working here.

  • A checklist consists of store knowledge we would like you to memorize and have ready at all times when you are working here.

  • The checklists is also where we input all the feedback we have after each time observing you in a position.

  • Once you have everything checked off on your own checklist for a specific level you will have passed that level.

Window and Bagging​

  • Once you have passed all Front Counter positions you may begin learning how to bag and hand food out at window. 

  • Ask any leaders in the store for opportunities to bag and be in the window. 

  • Once you know how to work each of those positions you can start working on your checklists.

Who Can Check you Off at Each Level?​

  • Anyone who is a Lead Trainer, a Shift Leader, a Manager, or a Director can pass you at each level.

  • Once you have finished all Front Counter Level you can inform a director that you are ready to receive a paid promotion and move on to Drive-thru levels. The same goes for Drive-thru Levels as well.

  • The only people who can approve of a paid promotion for Front Counter or Drive Thru levels are directors.
