Development Opportunities

At Shari’s, our goal is to help you develop your career with us. Our training programs allow you to keep working while developing the skills necessary to advance throughout the company.

Job Development Programs

Management Training Programs

For new and existing team members Shari’s offers five levels of management training programs. These programs are offered in a variety of ways: online through our Corporate University, at Certified Training Restaurants, in a classroom taught by our corporate instructors or personally by management or training staff in your location. If you choose a management career with Shari’s these programs are designed to progress you through the management levels from supervisor to assistant manager to general manager. Shari’s believes in promoting from within the company whenever possible and you will find that many of the people you work with have held other positions within the company.

Training Positions

At Shari’s, each restaurant develops their own training staff known as Team Trainers. Team Trainers assist the management team in conducting newly hired team member training and other training functions at the restaurant. Our team members who aren’t quite ready for full-time management positions feel this is an excellent opportunity for contributing to the restaurant and developing their skills. Team Trainers may also participate in new restaurant openings.

Job Development Assistance

Flexible Hours

Shari’s is open 365 days a year, 24 hours a day. If your goal is to pursue a more formal education or you have child care needs, there are nearly unlimited scheduling possibilities available. In fact, through our annual survey, our team members tell us that one of their manager’s greatest strengths is working with their schedules.

Tuition Reimbursement

For Assistant Managers and General Managers, Shari’s offers a Tuition Reimbursement program for courses related to their position. The company will reimburse up to $300 for approved courses twice a year.
