Before starting at 1-800-GOT-JUNK?, I had a goal to achieve in life but needed the support system to make it a reality. I wanted a part-time job to complete my undergrad studies however most places I interviewed had limited flexibility for a college student until I applied here. The franchise owner thought it was a great idea to excel academically and offered me a truck team member position as well as the comfort to ask for any additional assistance he can be of for me. While in school, I took part in full work days with the team and still had time to come home and do homework. It is very interesting to meet a variety of different people every day and each with their different stories. We always made the customer feel better at the end while giving them back what was theirs, the needed space. The truck team members that worked along side me always looked out for each other and made the day go faster with their efficiency and humor. Working in the summer is by far the hardest part of the job yet you will always have your partner keeping you up and handing you a cold water to refresh you during every job. The rewards when finished are the compliments and the gratitude from the customers when they see the hard work we did for them. In the mixed of all this, I was able to receive my Bachelors degree from the University of California, Irvine in Psychology. I plan in continuing my academic road into working towards a Masters degree in the future and with the support I have from my company, I believe I can.
