WHICH BRAND WILL I WORK IN? 
All of them!  As a salaried leader at Atomic, we want you to take ownership of all elements of the business, which includes all the brands!

FAQ_Icon_PTO-2.png

WHAT IS YOUR PTO POLICY? 
Atomic Provisions create a Personal Time Off (PTO) package with our team in mind. Our leaders will be granted 3 days of Paid Sick Leave (PSL) immediately upon hire. At 6 months, any unused PSL will roll over to PTO. So, if PSL is completely unused, that leaves you with 6 days of PTO after 6 months. At 1 year, you will be eligible for 15 days of PTO, plus an additional 3 days of PSL annually, for the first 5 years. After 5 years, PTO increases to 20 days annually and 3 days of PSL. PTO can be used for vacation, personal time, holidays and illness or

FAQs_HireSite_Bonus.png

IS THERE A BONUS PLAN IN PLACE? 
Yes! All Salaried Managers are eligible for a performance bonus. Atomic does 360 Evaluations of our leadership and this largely dictates bonus potential. Evaluations are performed every 6 months, and are based on the following 3 components:

1. 50% People - We believe in supportive leadership. But also, we value our team's opinions. This is simply: Do your teams feel cared for? Are they learning and growing? Are they given all the tools to be successful? Do they have a platform to share their opinions or feel empowered? What do your teams and peers say about you?
2. 25% Sales - We will always be a financially sound company (able to weather pandemic sized storms and beyond) and keep progressing careers as we grow forward.
3. 25% Profits - Profits are the "oxygen" we need to care for our team members and grow new restaurants and careers.

We believe this people-centered approach encourages our leadership stay focused on the most important element of our business: Our teams.

 

FAQ_Icon_DevelopmentGrowth-2.png

WHAT IS YOUR PLAN FOR FUTURE GROWTH? 
We learned a lot through the pandemic. The increased demand for Denver Biscuit Company's (DBC) delicious comfort food at a value price-point truly astounded us. Our managers, AKA Atomic Warriors, taught us what we are capable of achieving, specifically the incredible success of DBC as a to-go platform. Throughout 2020 we were braking all-time sales records with closed dining rooms. Truly mind-blowing performance! Our next location, in the City of Centennial, CO will feature both DBC as well as our latest burger concept Lights Out, with our first ever drive thru option! 

FAQ_Icon_ProtectEmployees-2.png

HOW DO YOU CARE FOR AND PROTECT YOUR TEAMS?
Most importantly, we listen to our people. We care about how you feel and what you think about our restaurant work environments. Each location is staffed with 6-10 managers and a generous number of team members, so you'll always have the support you need. Further, we train well, equip our restaurants with the needed tools and supplies to succeed and surround everyone with the very best people possible. 

For those that want a career in restaurants, we grow our leadership talent from within whenever we can. Lastly, we keep it fun. We choose to not work with anyone who isn't supportive of their fellow team members and work to create a culture and environment that ensures staff walk into their shift with a smile on their face. 

FAQ_Icon_GiveBack2-2.png

HOW DO YOU GIVE BACK TO THE COMMUNITY? 
Throughout Atomic Provisions' 17 year history, we've always had a very generous, warm heart. We've donated to the community with hundreds of gift cards, food donations and fundraising events. 

In 2020, we formed the Atomic Provisions Foundation. So Far, our AP Foundation has 2 primary pillars:

1. The HOPE Fund - Helping Our People in Emergencies. Should any of our team members experience a qualifying emergency, we've got their back.
2. Good Neighbor Programs - Reinvesting in our communities primarily through Dine and Donate fundraising efforts. Our desire is to find nonprofits our team members are passionate about so we can partner with them to build awareness and raise donations through our dine and donate nights. 

FAQ_Icon_LGBTQ-2.png

ARE YOU LTGBQIA+ FRIENDLY? 
Yes! Atomic embraces all individuals of any gender identity and/or orientation and strives to foster a culture of acceptance and love across our teams. A high percentage of our staff identifies as LTGBQIA+, which we embrace! Know that when you are part of our family, you are safe and encouraged to be yourself. 

On that same note, we never tolerate individuals who aren't accepting of others. This is vital to creating a great place to work for everyone. 

 

FAQ_Icon_Scheduling-2.png

ARE YOU FLEXIBLE WITH SCHEDULING HOURS? 
Yes! We are constantly striving to balance the needs of our people with our business levels. We do our very best to accommodate all reasonable scheduling requests. Because our restaurants are incredibly popular, we open early and close late, there are requests we may not be able to honor. If there is a scheduling need we cannot meet, we'll commit to telling you immediately, which is usually a part of the interview process. 

FAQ_Icon_Tattoos-2.png

IS IT OK IF I HAVE TATTOOS? 
Yes! In fact we prefer it!  Here at Atomic, we want you to embrace your authentic self. To be unapologetically YOU! Why? Because that’s an important part of what makes you amazing, and that’s what stuck out to us most about you. We are a wildly oddball group. If different is your vibe, then you’ll fit right in.

FAQ_Icon_SoManyBrands-2.png

HOW IS YOUR TEAM RETENTION? 
The most important metric we track is the retention of our team members. Though the pandemic challenged all restaurant retention levels, we are very very proud of our people results and appreciate each and every one of our team members who have worked so hard to get us where we are today.
