The Fort Wayne Campus recently presented Ollie’s Bargain Outlet with the Distinguished Community Employer award. Ollie’s Bargain Outlet opened in Fort Wayne late last year and immediately hired graduate Lorrie Wittgenfeld.
Lorrie completed the supervisory management specialist program and is working toward her business administration – management associate’s degree. Her supervisor and the store manager at Ollie’s, Zack Shields, talked about Lorrie’s preparedness for her position. Mr. Shields said, “Lorrie understood the opportunities and came to the job prepared. She has a great attitude and hit the ground running.” Zack also went on to say that he seeks employees with a positive attitude who have a willingness to grow and listen.
Zack mentioned that a college degree on a résumé will get the applicant an interview, but a strong work ethic is also important. Zack stated that a college education will put an applicant in line for a job and promotions more quickly than someone with no college experience. The Fort Wayne Campus appreciates the affiliation with Ollie’s Bargain Outlet and their presence in the community.
