Fun and hardworking company.
Hardware Associate (Former Employee) – Modesto, CA – November 3, 2015
During a work shift I would help customers with anything and everything they needed, typically recommend what supplies they would need for certain projects around the house and offer my advice. While working at Orchard Supply, I learned how to operate a register, key cutters, table saws, hand tools, and lastly how to properly deal with unsatisfied customers. Management was great to all its employees, including myself. Whenever approached by management, I felt comfortable and useful around them, they were able to communicate at the same level without abusing their power and still be motivational. Finally, Orchard Supply's management utilizes their employees skills, placing them in areas in which they excel, rather than starting them all in one position. During my first week at Orchard Supply, I truly had my co-workers to thank. No matter how many questions I asked, each co-worker was just as happy to help me with whatever I needed and whenever I needed. All of my work at Orchard Supply was enjoyable and I never found anything too hard for me, if anything was every difficult for me personally, I always had someone to help me with it. To conclude, the most enjoyable part of this job was learning new skills and interacting with customers.
