How long have you been at the company?
Not very long, only since March 2020, although I feel very integrated into the team.
What’s been your favourite moment at the company so far?
To be honest my favourite moment took place on a meeting call on Microsoft teams. It was my birthday in March, and due to us all working from home I was socially distancing, on my birthday. But that didn’t stop everyone from singing happy birthday over the phone, despite me only working with the company for less than two weeks at the time. It just shows that the team is very close-knit and it’s nice to be a part of that.
When you think of TotalControlPro™, what is the first word that comes to mind?
“Team” – In the small time I’ve worked with the company, they’ve demonstrated their emphasis on teamwork and making sure that we support each other.
What has been your most challenging job so far?
I wouldn’t call it a “job” per se, but it has been a big challenge becoming accustomed to working from home due to the COVID-19 situation. Sometimes it can be difficult to focus when there are so many distractions. But it’s all about working together to get through these difficult and strange times, so it is a challenge but it’s also an opportunity to work together even better.
