I’ve been working at Blinds To Go for just under a year and a half, and applying there was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. The only job I held prior to Blinds To Go was at a movie theater for four years, and I fell into the college trap of having a degree, but no relevant experience. That, coupled with my anxiety, led to less than stellar interviews. I just needed someone to take a chance on me, and that is how I ended up here.
They recognized the potential I had, and have since continued to develop that potential. This company really invests in you, and they have created a culture that is constant 360 degree feedback and development. We all help each other at EVERY level! Furthermore, this isn’t the traditional pushy sales type job. It’s about exemplary customer service and giving the customer a great experience- which I love!
I started my training very apprehensive, soft-spoken and not that great at talking with others. I didn’t even like calling places to make my own appointments! I am not the same person I was when I started. I have new found confidence and a voice. I have built a great rapport with my team and customers, and am on track to manage my own store where I can take these skills! Not only that, but I have these skills for the rest of my life in everything that I do. And for this, I can’t express my gratitude enough.
