What’s your favorite part of working at TimeForge?
My favorite part of working at TimeForge are the people I work with. My associates are very friendly and make coming into work every day a fun and enjoyable experience.
How do you make the lives of TimeForge customers better?
By being as friendly as possible and always tending to the customers’ needs. I try to find a solution to whatever problems they are facing and give them customer service that goes above and beyond so they have a reason to stay with us.
What was your first hourly job?
My first hourly job was as a baker at a Super Target store, and it was by far the worst job I have ever had!
What was your first restaurant or retail job?
I worked at Office Depot for a couple of years and learned how demanding a retail job can be. I also learned how leadership can affect employee morale. A lack in leadership will negatively influence your co-workers and will cause a severe depletion of work ethic. I learned that no matter how high of a position you have, you need to always treat your employees with respect. The better you treat your employees, the harder they will work for you.
What’s your favorite hobby?
Playing video games and reading novels have to be my favorite hobbies. Ever since I was a little kid, I have been stuck on playing games. It is a form of stress relief for me. Reading is also one of my favorite hobbies. I enjoy the stories, the character development, the twists and surprises that books provide.
What’s your favorite sports team?
The Rockets (Basketball) and the Texans (Football). Both are my home-town teams, so I have to stay faithful and represent wherever I go.
Do you have any pets?
No, but I would like to own a dog someday; preferably a German Shepard.
