At the CRVA, we believe that our employees come first. Our philosophy is that by investing in employees and creating an atmosphere that fosters strong engagement, employees will in turn devote their energies into their work and deliver a higher level of customer service, quality and commitment to CRVA brands. This focus on the employee also extends to the way they’re managed and encouraged to carry out their jobs each and every day. The CRVA has embraced the management style of distributed leadership, where employees are empowered by their managers to pursue opportunities to lead, learn new responsibilities and make decisions that impact the greater good of the CRVA. Distributed leadership extends to every level of the CRVA – every link in the leadership chain is encouraged to adopt this ideal and pass it on to their own employees. Open lines of communication are critical to distributed leadership and require managers and employees to regularly communicate and establish critical interpersonal relationships that strengthen over time.

Facility Operations Manager, Bojangles' Coliseum & Ovens Auditorium
What do you enjoy most about working at the CRVA?
I love the culture that CRVA provides each and every employee. Other than the military, I have not worked for any other company that treats their employees with the grace and dignity that I’ve experienced at the CRVA. Because of this, I enjoy and look forward to each work day and attending CRVA employee events.
What inspires you and keeps you motivated?
As a Facility Operations Manager, I get inspired through knowing the work I do touches each and every patron that walks through the doors of Bojangles’ Coliseum and Ovens Auditorium. The work our department does affects everyone from the artist that performs on the stage that we build to the patron using the restrooms we maintain and clean.
What would you tell someone who is exploring CRVA job opportunities?
I would tell you to join our team, even if that means beginning part-time versus full time. The CRVA values the talent of its staff and invests in our growth. I started off as a part time conversion tech at Spectrum Center and now I’m a manager at Bojangles’ Coliseum. I would tell anyone that once you have joined the team, opportunities are endless.
