What is your role at Mid-Cape? Contractor Sales Associate in Orleans.
What led you to a career with Mid-Cape? A desire to (finally) get out of the work truck, and to work for a company that would allow me the potential to grow for years to come.
Describe Mid-Cape in three words: What a team.
What is your biggest accomplishment at Mid-Cape so far? When I first began, I felt a little bit like the guy straight out of barber school who sits in his own barber chair watching TV while all the customers wait patiently for the veteran barbers to cut their hair. My biggest accomplishment without question thus far has been getting to personally know and gain the trust of many contractors who shop here at Mid-Cape. It feels so important because I know that trust is the reason they continue to come through our gates.
What is something working at Mid-Cape has taught you? Working at Mid-Cape I have learned that doing even the smallest deed for someone can lead to great dividends.
So far, what has been your favorite memory at Mid-Cape? During a torrential rainstorm a few months back, the store here in Orleans was starting to flood from several locations. Everyone in the store from all departments worked together with squeegees, mops and shuffling around with paper towels on our feet to keep it from spreading into the store. It was one of those examples where hard work doesn’t feel so hard when you are part of a good team.
What does the Mid-Cape Experience mean to you? Doing our best so that our customers see success in whatever they’re looking to accomplish.
What’s the greatest bit of advice a Mid-Cape team member has ever given you? I was told that in sales you cannot just wait for customers to call or walk in, there is always something you can be doing that will either lead to or prepare you for the next sale.
What is one important skill every person should have? Listening – as my uncle always reminded me: you have two ears and one mouth for a reason.
What is one of the things on your bucket list? I must admit I find this question a little depressing. I’m only 33! I don’t even want to consider making a bucket list for at least a few decades so let’s just see where life takes me. So far so good.
