Operations Supervisors provide an exemplary model of customer service, hospitality, and operational procedures- such as supervision, staffing, recruiting, motivating, managing expectations and etc... while leading and managing the team. Responsible for assisting the Operations Manager in all facets of program at the local level. This is a very multifaceted program with many moving parts.

Hospitality is the main skill needed, all the rest we can train but, if you don't want to motivate people to be helpful, detail oriented and operate professionally then we are dead in the water.
