Q: What was your “Aha” moment that made you choose to join Blinds.com?
I decided to join the Blinds.com team after hearing about all the opportunities the company presented from my referral. She was constantly ranting and raving about how cool her job was, what they were able to do on a daily basis and most importantly, how she felt that each day at work was a growth opportunity. How could anyone pass that up!?
Q: Describe your relationships with other Blinds.commers. What’s the environment like?
Since working at Blinds.com I have had the opportunity to meet an incredible amount of people from a variety of different cultures and paths of life. I particularly enjoy the happy-go-lucky attitude that most people are the office tends to exhibit. It’s nice to be able to walk in the office each morning with people that I truly enjoy seeing, getting to know, and learning from.
Q: Which of the core values influences you the most in your life and why?
Continuous Improvement. Walking into my first position (an internship actually) at Blinds.com I had little educational and experience background for the position I was taking. Consequently, there was a steep learning curve that I had to get over. Each day I came in knowing that my individual improvement would translate to the improvement of the entire group. It’s the same mentality I walk in each morning and that I believe has directly contributed to my growth within the organization.
Q: What’s some advice you’d give to someone who is considering being a part of the team?
Do it. Really take time to consider everything that our amazing culture offers as well as the direct benefits of being a member of The Home Depot family. The experience truly is unparalleled in the eCommerce industry. If you enjoy a place advocating your personal growth within the business and outside in your daily life, this is definitely the place for you!
Q: What experiences have shaped you the most as you enjoy the Blinds.com ride?
From day one I have had the complete trust of my direct manager and stake holders within the company. Accordingly I have had many experiences that allowed me to shine personally while making valued contributions to the company. Never once, have I felt tasked with “busy work”. I have personally enjoyed these trusted and purposeful exercises that have made me grow in my trade and personally in my life.
