Meet Hollie, Restaurant Manager at Grill’d Surfers Paradise

    Feb 27, 2022

    Hollie is the Restaurant manager on the Gold Coast glitter strip, Surfer Paradise. It’s arguably one of the most sought-after places to work, with the beach less than 50 metres from the restaurant. Hollie has been with Grill’d for 4 years, working at a number of different locations across the Gold Coast. Although being a Restaurant Manager takes up a lot of Hollie’s time, that’s not all she does. She is also a sister, an aunt and an incredible dog mum to the cutest little 4-year-old french bulldog!

    What do you do as a Restaurant Manager?

    I make sure that the restaurant runs smoothly day-to-day. I coach and train my team and make sure that all our customers have a great experience. It’s a full-on job. Because the restaurant is running all the time, I need to make sure that everything is running smoothly. But I also have my Assistant Restaurant Managers who always have my back.

    What has been your Grill’d career journey?

    Before Grill’d I was a Restaurant Manager at another restaurant (not Grill’d) for 2 years. It was a great starting point. It was very structured,whereas at Grill’d you get a lot more flexibility, ánd I can develop teams better and spend more time on customer service.

    When I started at Grill’d I was hired as an ARM at Pacific Fair and then moved to Surfer’s Paradise where I became Restaurant Manager.

    What has been a memorable experience at work?

    I’ve made a lot of friends at Grill’d. I wouldn’t say that there is one specific experience but I love that Grill’d have taken me on this journey. I’ve personally developed through it into the person I am today.

    What would you say to someone thinking of working at Grill’d?

    Choose Grill’d if you want a job that’s more than just a ‘job’. Obviously, you’re going to make great friends. But if you want something that’s going to give you a little bit more, then Grill’d is the choice for you. More responsibility, more flexibility, more choices, pick your own path and passion. There are definitely a lot of different avenues you can go down.

    We’re in the business of good burgers. Sounds simple, right? But it takes a lot of good people to get the job done.
