I am a part time Team Lead at Party City. I am in charge of my team of employees while I am on duty. I am responsible for talking to corporate, handling all customer problems, handling all monies bank deposits, posting, counting off and on registers. I am also responsible for setting new sets to plan-o-grams. Customer service is number one here! I'm with customers every single second I am at work!
The manager at this caribou asked me to apply so I did. She knew she wanted me to be on her team because she has seen me work at Party City and she knew I was a hard worker and passionate about what I do! I ring up customers drinks and also help make them! Caribou Coffee is all about knowing your customers by name and engaging in them when they come in for their coffee. It also is a bonus when you know what they always get so you can start it ready as they are pull in the parking lot! Its more personal!
I am on concessions here at the movie theater and deal with customers every moment working here! I also clean theaters some times when I'm not on concessions.
This is where I did my internship! It was a 3 week long program Ridgewater had us do in order to graduate. We each choose where we wanted to go and applied. While I was here I was Jon's (owner) second shooter. I helped him with a wedding and senior shoots as well as children. I also helped him edit his photos. I learned a lot about how to run a business and different techniques to use in my photography! It was a great experience. While I was on internship I also got to follow a fashion photographer from New York with my friend Jared and his Internship Photographer in Duluth, Minnesota! That was definitely eye opening and a great learning experience!
