Staying Busy Makes the Days Fly By!
Inside Sales Representative (Current Employee) – Surrey, BC – 5 May 2017
I've always worked for "mom & pop shop" type companies, and (even though New-Line is fairly large) I fit right in. Same family owns it since they opened (1972), and constantly growing.
I got hired on to do customer service, basically inside sales. The first few weeks they had me job shadow other positions in the company. At first I wasn't too pumped but have a better appreciation for other departments.
I knew very little about hose or fittings before accepting this position, but the training was phenomenal. I do like finding answers for myself, so I excelled at the training tests.
Hardest part: Saying no to a customer, didn't happen often but never liked giving away sale no matter what.
Most enjoyable: Staying busy, a regular day feels like 3 hours because I kept so busy and focused.
"Small company" feel, decent pay, great support, innovative, employee lounge has an awesome view.
Vending machine always gets stuck, parking can be tough, lunch options are limited in the area.
