Meet Susan Hathcock. Susan has been with Clipper for 17 years! She was hired on as a store manager and now helps with training other managers. What does she enjoy most about working at Clipper? “I love the fact they believe in investing in their people as well as the face they put family first.”
Susan’s favorite memory from her time at Clipper happened recently. “It was the day after the big storm hit in Cleveland and about 90% of the community was without power and water. Tom Bower came by and went to every pump to apologize for our credit debit system being down, after that he went into Bojangles’ and worked the line, changed trash as well as swept the lobby. This showed me the heart he has for not only his company but for the communities in which they are located.”
Susan feels that Clipper has allowed her the time to go back to school and get her Associates degree in Business Management. She even won a scholarship with the recommendations of Clipper management and had the full support of the company to help achieve her dream!
Meet Deantre Hartwell, or known to many of our guests as Trey! He has been working at Clipper for five months as an Assistant Manager at store #25 in Clayton, Georgia. Trey’s favorite part about work is that he enjoys interacting with the customers and learning how to manage to different stores. His favorite memory from his time at Clipper so far is Orientation Day and the Solar Eclipse Day where we hosted an event at the store!
When asked what opportunities Clipper has opened for him, Trey said “Clipper gave me the opportunity to learn a lot of knowledge to manage two different stores. When I applied, I thought I was going to be a clerk. I never knew that when DJ (Manager at #25) called me I was going to be her Assistant Manager. Now I’m helping run two stores #25 and #43.”
Meet Sam Sullens. Sam has worked at Clipper for 11 years and 10 months! Her current role is Sandwich Artist, Store Manager. When asked what she enjoys most about working at Clipper she said, “The atmosphere and my customers. They make all the difference in the day-to-day job. It is a great company.”
Sam’s favorite memory while working at Clipper is being part of the Advisory Board. “I feel that this is an awesome opportunity. I get to reach out to other managers and represent them to help make great changes in the company. Also, the Leadership Academy. I have learned so much from Linda McKenna. It has taught me so much that I can relate to not only at Clipper, but in different aspects of life as well.”
When asked what opportunities Clipper has opened for her Sam said, “It got me getting ready for my retirement. I have all my insurances in case of an accident and a 401K that I have been putting into for several years. There are not many people my age planning ahead yet, but it was stressed to me how important it was by my Territory Manager and that is why I started it. Now, a few years later, I see the importance.”
