    Sumalee – Server/Certified Trainer

    I am proof that there are advancement opportunities at LongHorn, since I started as a dishwasher 12 years ago, was one of the finalists for Steakmasters in 2017 and now I’m a Manager. As long as you put in the hard work, you will be rewarded.

    Joe – Restaurant Manager

  • Managing Partner

    In my opinion, LongHorn is the best steakhouse and I always wanted to be part of the best. I became an MP in less than two years and I’ve gotten four or five managers promoted to MP. I’m very big on mentoring and paying it forward.

    Steve – Managing Partner

  • Director of Operations

    I am a Director now, but I started as a Restaurant Manager. I was able to move my career forward with hard work and great leaders who helped develop me. There is a path to promotion, if you have the desire, commitment and ability to learn.
