Susan loves working here and she beams as she says, “I love to be doing something important. I love people and I love to seat people.”
“Susan’s success demonstrates the value and purpose of our employment program at CLASS,” says Peter Wiese, Employment Services supervisor. “Our placement, coaching and ongoing support ensure long-term success and independence for every person we match to a job.”
In addition to her hostess work, Susan helps the waitstaff with setting tables when things get busy.
"I've been working here for six years and I notice a difference in our guests when Susan is working, seating them for lunch," said Rob Langford, her manager. "They're glad to see her. She greets them with a smile and takes care of them. We're happy she's an employee here and she's done a great job for two years."
“It’s a joy to work with Susan,” echoes Career Specialist Keone Coleman, her job coach at CLASS. “She tends to be a fast learner and is such a happy-go-lucky individual, always full of life. She really loves her job at the Porthole and the people here really enjoy her energy.”
“Susan currently works two jobs and does good work at both,” Keone adds. “She is so independent she makes my job easy.
“Susan really exemplifies what it means to be a good employee.”
“I’m the hostess with the mostest,” she says, smiling.
