Hello again, everyone, and greetings from Apex Supply! This is the second installment of my blog, and boy do I have a lot to tell you guys. Training is going GREAT! I am learning something new almost every minute it seems, and I am eager for more! I love learning new things, so needless to say I am thoroughly enjoying my training.
Last week, I finished the warehouse module and moved to the counter. The warehouse was great. It took a while at first to comprehend everything that was going on, but once I got the gist of things, it was smooth sailing! I learned a ton back there – daily procedures, product names and uses, product locations, and so much more. Working in the warehouse has helped me build a solid understanding of how the business operates. My favorite part of working in the warehouse was the fast-paced nature of the job. After all, time flies when you’re hard at work!
I am currently on my second week at the counter. I really like working up here and interacting with all of our customers. You can really learn a lot by listening to them talk about their jobs and how they use our products. I enjoy the customer service aspect of the counter as well. It is an awesome feeling when a customer comes in and isn’t certain of what they are looking for, and you are able to help them find exactly what they need. The gratification that comes from helping a customer is like no other. They say that if you do something you love, you will never “work” a day in your life. Well, if that’s the case, then I haven’t “worked” at all!
Fun fact about Morgan: While I was in college, I worked in the heating and air industry as an installer. That was how I first became interested in working for a supply company. We would go to the supply store to order materials and I would think to myself, “Man, this would be an awesome career!” I could picture myself being on the other side of the counter helping customers with their orders. With the Management Development Program, I am making my vision become a reality, and it is truly a blessing. I can’t wait to see what the future holds!
Well, that’s it for now, folks. I will check back in with y’all in a few weeks to fill you in on how things are going.
Thanks for reading, everyone. Until next time, be safe and have fun!
