I was involved with TYES in 2006 and they helped me get my job at Winners at Tillicum Mall.
When I first went to Winners I wasn’t sure yet about how I would do in this job.
I never worked in a big store like this before.
I went to the warehouse, took clothes out of the boxes and laid them out into piles.
I got to see all the new stuff. Before I went out on the floor I got to meet my supervisors and managers.
They were all really nice and helpful. They have a great team, big hearts and they love their staff. I love being part of this team!
When I was there for five years I got my five year pin and plaque. I was excited and proud to have been there for five years.
While I have been at Winner I have learned different tasks in the store and have more responsibilities.
I feel like I am more assertive since I started this job and I talk more to other people.
I love my job because I get to meet many people and help out the customers.
It is also nice getting a paycheque twice per month. This money give me a chance to buy myself treats and things that I like.
I can also buy gifts for other people with it. If I could change anything with this job it would be to get more hours.
I am still working at Winners and next May I will have been there for ten years. All I can say is that it is a really great team.
I hope that I will have many more years at Winners.
I am looking forward to having my ten year party with Community Living Victoria who is now support me at Winners.
