A Universal Orlando Success Story
Ericka – Trainer, Learning & Development – Food & Beverage
Ericka began her career at Universal Orlando working at the Cinnabon in CityWalk. She took the job to make money while in school. Ericka liked working at Universal Orlando, and realized that she could have more than just a job here. She worked hard and earned a promotion to Team Lead (now called Team Captain) at Cinnabon. She knew she wanted to continue her career in Food & Beverage, and tried to learn as much as she could about working in restaurants. To further her understanding of the business, she accepted a position as a Line Cook in the Breakaway Café, a quick-service restaurant at CityWalk for Team Members only. There she worked her way up, learning all she could about the culinary side of Food & Beverage. Wanting to take on new challenges, Ericka transferred to Pastamoré (where Vivo Italian Kitchen is now), a full-service restaurant. It was at Pastamoré that her management approached her to see if she would be interested in covering the restaurant as a manager on an as-needed basis. Not wanting to pass on an opportunity, Ericka agreed. This ultimately led to Ericka being promoted to Assistant Restaurant Manager (ARM) at Captain America’s Diner in Islands of Adventure. The same as with her previous job changes, ARM meant she had to learn entirely new responsibilities, like understanding food costs. Ericka would serve as an ARM at several quick- service locations in Universal Studios Florida and Islands of Adventure before going to Mythos, an award-winning full-service restaurant in Islands of Adventure. Still seeking new challenges, Ericka applied for the position of Trainer for Food & Beverage in Learning & Development. After going through the process of interviewing, that included preparing a presentation for the hiring manager, Ericka was offered the job. As with her previous career moves, Ericka applied the skills she had honed in past jobs, and tackled learning those things that were new and challenging, like facilitating to large groups and preparing content to deliver to various audiences.
Best Career Decisions
Early on, Ericka purposely put herself in situations that were challenging or uncomfortable. That included asking her management to be candid with her about her performance, including what she could do better. Knowing that growth and promotion meant taking on and mastering new skills, Ericka saw the feedback from those development conversations as opportunities to learn how she was perceived and what she could be doing to be better at her job and prepare her for future opportunities.
“Partner with leadership to have candid conversations. Find someone on the level you want to be on and talk to them; you have to do the leg work.”
