All of our employees can come from different backgrounds and walks of life, but what we are looking for is something special, that will allow them to blend in seamlessly with the existing crowd of greatness.
Here are a few attributes you must be pretty sure you posess if you think a job with us is not going to be just a waste of your, and our time:

1. You are reliable. You understand delayed MTA schedules and winter blues days, but you always rise against those obstacles and somehow make it where you had committed to arriving, on time, all the time. You know that this will be a nice thing to see in your teammates. You give that respect and you expect it back.
2. You have integrity. You understand guests and team members depend on your best behavior, and you are excited to deliver it in a disciplined manner for common good.
3. You are passionate about personal growth. You know you want to learn, grow and prosper and you are ready to make efforts to improve yourself along the way and keep planning and dreaming up ways on how to better yourself. You always strive to accomplish more even when others don' see anything else that needs to be done.
4. You are humble. If you can't admit weakness, confess mistakes or ask for help from others, this will be a difficult place to work. Everyone makes mistakes, but being able to accept it and let the more experienced team members teach us, will make a big difference in our ability to learn and grow.
5. You are diplomatic and wise in communication. You often think about and have a good understanding of the impact your words, body language, and attitude have on people. You are naturally aware what and when might be good, or not good, to say.

Please take a minute to think about the above qualities and ask yourself if this kind of workplace that will push you to project them is what you are looking for. We respect that everyone does not have the same preference when it comes to this. We think it is very important to come to work with joy- and we strongly believe that people who would not find themselves at home with the above qualities will not enjoy working here and would not prosper.
