What do you do at Paper Mart? I’m an Inventory Control Lead
How long have you worked here? 17 years
Tell us what a typical day at work for you entails. First I cycle count items in the warehouse, find any missing items, and I review any issues. I also pull any samples that are requested by Marketing, Customer Care, and Purchasing.
What do you like best about working at Paper Mart? I love what I do. I’m proud and grateful to be a part of the Paper Mart family.
Before Paper Mart, what was the most unusual/interesting job you had? I worked for a company named Tomato Inc. but they had nothing to do with vegetables – they were a garment goods company!
Apart from your work at Paper Mart, what are some side projects or hobbies you have outside of the office/warehouse? In my free time, I love spending time with my family and hanging out with my friends. I also enjoy walking and hiking the local hills. Walking helps me relax, de-stress, and focus. Another thing I spend time on is fixing (aka: breaking lol!) my car.
If you had to eat one type of food for the rest of your life, what would it be? I love all sorts of food. I love seafood. If I had to choose a one type – it would be Mexican food – tacos, tortas, burritos, etc.
Would you rather go back in time or in the future? Why? The past has already passed. To me, the future is not here yet. Right now, I’d just rather live day by day and hope for a better future.
Describe what you were like at age 10. I was chubby, shy, and quiet. I also had a lot of energy for playing. I didn’t worry about anything.
What’s your all-time favorite TV show? I love investigative shows. Mysteries, thrillers, and suspense.
