Featured Vertex Employee – Helen

Meet our Employee of the Month, Helen! She is one of the friendly cocktail servers from our very own Vertex Sky Bar at Hotel Alex Johnson. We had a minute to visit with Helen and ask a few questions about her experience working at Vertex and what she loves most about the atmosphere.

Q: WHAT IS YOUR ROLE AT VERTEX?

A: I’m a cocktail server.

Q: HOW LONG HAVE YOU WORKED HERE?

A: Since May of last year.

Q: DESCRIBE THE ATMOSPHERE AT VERTEX FOR SOMEONE WHO HAS NEVER BEEN?

A: It’s a super quirky little space for someone who has never been. They may not realize that the kitchen is on the second floor. It takes a little bit of maneuvering to get things where they need to be. It’s a lot of fun! The environment is what I love about this place and the employees too. I think we’re the second tallest building in South Dakota which I thought was pretty interesting because its not that tall of a building but it definitely brings in that crowd in for that environment of having a little bit of a skyview of the city.

Q: WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE DRINK AT VERTEX?

A: The Sweet Heat which is a spicy maragarita with tequila, muddled strawberries, & jalapenos. We also muddle the jalapenos in it too.

Q: WHAT DO YOU ENJOY MOST ABOUT WORKING HERE?

A: Definitely the people. I made a family coming here. When I first moved here, I planned on only being here for about a year and since then decided to stay longer because of the close-knit family I made.

Q: WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO OUTSIDE OF WORK?

A: I like drawing, yoga, hanging out with my pets, and checking out the Black Hills. That’s one of the reasons why I decided to stay longer. I thought a year would allow enough time to check everything out in the area, but now that I’m here, I realize all the little places in the hills. I’m going to stay longer for the Black Hills.
