Growing up, Kimberly Phillips always knew she wanted to be in a line of work where she could help others. Through training at Arby’s and volunteer work in her personal life, Kimberly has fulfilled those career aspirations. And it all started 16 years ago when she learned what becoming a team member at Arby’s was all about.
“I learned about some of the opportunities and the core values at Arby’s, like Dream Big, Work Hard, Have Fun. To me, what was so impactful was learning about how team members live those values not only for 20, 30, 40 years at work but how it translates to home life as well,” Kimberly said. “I knew then that Arby’s was the company I wanted to work for until I retire.”
After joining Arby’s more than 16 years ago, Kimberly has spent the last four years as a performance manager, traveling to Arby’s restaurants across the country to train and ensure the company’s standards are met. But Kimberly’s efforts don’t stop with her work at Arby’s. She’s also dedicated much of her life to philanthropic work.
“It all started with the Susan G. Komen 5k with my goddaughter after she lost her mom. My husband has diabetes, so I did a race that aims to help those living with diabetes as well. I’ve done races supporting suicide awareness, support for leukemia patients and so much more,” Kimberly said. “Over the last two years, I’ve also been on two mission trips to Belize and the Dominican Republic, where we provided communities with medical, dental, vision and personal care items.”
Whether she’s training others in an Arby’s restaurant or supporting worthwhile causes, Kimberly’s selfless nature impacts countless others.
“Having an impact on the brand while training others has been rewarding and exciting,” Kimberly said. “I’m so incredibly blessed to be able to do what I love, which is helping others both at work and in the community.”
