My first job at age 16 was in the grocery business. I was working for Alberston’s as a Courtesy Clerk and Janitor. I worked there for three years, and during that short time, I learned the meaning of “work ethic” and “team.” It wasn’t just a job; I felt I was part of a team and took a lot of pride in the job I did.
After college I worked in Retail Management for Office Depot. In my seven years there, I worked in many different management and training roles. By the end of my time, I was helping coordinate store remodels and new store openings.
I have always been motivated by working in a team environment, and coordinating remodels and store openings gave me the chance to interact with many different specialists, associates, and customers. The challenge of implementing the projects to specification, the logistics of coordinating different teams, and staying on deadline reinvigorated me. There’s something satisfying about taking a project through all the stages of completion and being able to see a tangible result. The projects also had me on the front lines of the merchandising industry, and I was seeing the latest in POP, new items, and merchandising fixtures.
In 1997 I started Precision Sets with a few associates who I knew to share my idea of work ethic. Our vision was, and is, to provide consistent, detailed service based on our customers’ needs, while continuing to grow our business. To create a working environment that provides opportunity to our associates as well as time for family.
I have been told the only way to build esteem is through estimable acts. Something as simple as cleaning the kitchen can be an estimable act; anything that makes the world a better place, even a little bit. At Precision Sets, Inc., we encourage our associates in their service to their communities.
