Women’s Only Podcast
Wendy Tucker is Omega Sport’ Market Leader in Winston-Salem. Wendy owned Newtown Bistro, a successful restaurant that she managed for 21 years before joining Omega Sports.
The Road to Omega Sports
Wendy was an Omega Sports frequent shopper. Because she was involved in sports during high school, Wendy had been coming to it since the 80s. Glenn was managing Omega Sports in Newtown Bistro’s closing. She struck up a conversation. He asked her if she was interested in a part-time job.
Wendy was driving to the beach when she said “No, no, I don’t think I need to have a part time job, but I want to take some time off.” She thought that maybe a parttime job might be a good idea. After working a few hours per week, she quickly rose to the rank of shift supervisor. Soon after, she was promoted to assistant manager. Wendy is now a Market Leader, and she loves her job.
Many of the staff were with Wendy for over 21 years when she started the restaurant. It was hard to say goodbye. She has seen so many people come in to Omega while working at Omega.
She learned from her restaurant management experience that good employees are more likely to stay with you and be loyal.
Learning for a lifetime
Wendy studied Spanish at college, and she has continued to study Spanish throughout her adulthood. They hosted an exchange student from Argentina through a program offered by her daughter’s school. She took advantage of the opportunity to improve her Spanish. She was helped by exchange students who were kind and patient with her. This helped Spanish-speaking customers when they visited Omega.
