My New Job.....

I have been blessed with the most wonderful part time job! After much prayer and more obsessing than I would like to admit, I am back in the world of retail. I am working for the amazing company Pottery Barn. I really didn't know much about it, except I have always loved their merchandise. They are owned by The Williams & Sonoma Company. (Another favorite store of mine!) Even after just one evening of work, I'm experiencing the customer care personality of the store. The company is all about customer service and treating all people with respect. On my first night I was able to help people with design questions, and add-on sales. I also used the cash register, which I mostly avoided in my own shop! I can't wait to tell my friends that worked for me all about the new fangled computer equipment. There is even a little machine about the size of a telephone that prints out a tag when you need one. UPC codes...amazing... One of the amazing things about PB is the stock men. They help with all sorts of things. You just give them a call on the headset and they come running with whatever you need or to get rid of anything that's laying around the counter. I can remember when things would get so messy around the counter that it took a day to clear it out!!! My new boss is a doll! She's about Andy's age. She's so smart and nice. She's a great trainer. She never makes me feel old and dumb. I wish I had a picture of her for the blog, maybe later....
If you haven't looked at Pottery Barn for a while check out their website http://Potterybarn.com I work in the decorative accessories area!

Bless you, dear Lynn!
It does sound like a great match! I totally understand--like the part about over obsessing, and appreciation for good, helpful people, and a patient boss. But mostly, I think they are so lucky to get you! They will be blessed and happy!

PS I hope that does not mean you will be blogging less!
