When I first started at Blinds To Go 8 years ago, I knew next to nothing about blinds. I attended Blinds To Go University in Montreal, Canada and met so many nice people in the company and they made me feel right at home. I knew then that I was going to like working for this company.
After a week of hands on training at BTGU, I started working in the showroom. I wanted to learn everything possible so I shadowed other DC’s and took notes. Once I became comfortably I was ready to take over the sales floor on my own.
I love coming to work. We worked as a team when I first arrived and still do to this day. What I love most about this job is that you get to meet so many people; you get to here their stories and tell them some of yours. BTG is a fun and friendly place to work.
Over the years I have worked at several different stores in Michigan. I started out selling only $500 to $1000 a week and now I am the top seller in Michigan and a head DC in my store. I have learned about the products inside out and how to present our products to our customer, finding out their needs and meeting those needs.
